I was wrong.
I was at Wal-Mart yesterday and I saw a lady staring at the wreaths. I heard her muttering to herself about how expensive they were. And then, much to my horror, I saw her pick one out and put it in her cart, sighing as she went.
I died a little inside just then.
For those of you who are in homemade wreath denial or think it's just easier to buy one, I'm staging an intervention. Here's the simplest, cheapest wreath you can make. Once made, it can be personalized in a hundred different ways to fit your family.
Go to the dollar store and get the following:
4 bunches of your favorite faux fall leaves
1 spool of ribbon
Did I mention this was simple?
From there, you can add picks, pumpkins, any little extras you like... and you won't pay $25.99 like that poor woman at Wal-Mart. I will never forgive myself for not rescuing her.
