Fall Leaves and Floral Wreath

Since I loved making my own cheap spring wreath this year, I decided to make a fall one too.  I went thrift shopping and to Walmart for the supplies.  I bet you could find a lot of this stuff from the dollar store too! I spent a total of $8.44, which is not bad considering most craft stores try to sell decorated wreaths around $20.00 and up.
Fall Leaves and Floral Wreath
wreath ($2.00 from a thrift store)
colored leaves, berries, acorns, pumpkins, etc ($1.50 from a thrift store)
 pine cones ($3.00 from Walmart )
orange and yellow sunflowers (.97 each from Walmart)
Glue gun and glue sticks
pliers to cut the flowers
Arrange your supplies how you like to design it. First, I glued on the leaves and flowers.  Then I started layering the other embellishments (pine cones, acorns, pumpkins, berries, etc). It took about two hours to hot glue it all together.
