The wreath that was the size I wanted to use had been hanging down there for quite a while. All of the flowers had been stripped from it, all that was left was some old, faded fall ribbon.
After pulling off all the old ribbon and globs of glue, I had a clean slate to start fresh. On my last visit to Hobby Lobby I had purchased 2 bushes of flowers when I fell in love with the colors. I happened to be there on the day that they were each half off the $24.99 price.
