Dollar Tree Wreath Transformed for Less Than Cost of a Happy Meal.
I am new to DIY, & have been trying my hand at a couple of DIY

I started with a ugly Dollar Tree vine wreath.
I added wire taken from our tool box to the wreath twisting it

wreath, & broke out the hot glue along with 4 sea shells I had picked up on our last trip to our vacation home, & 2 sets of "Under the Sea" buttons that I had
purchased from JoAnn fabric.
Finally I tied a little Natural Raffia to the wreath to use as a hanger,
& hot glued a few sprigs to the wreath as well, to complete the
Enjoyed the project?
