Isn't that so cute!?!
Since I had some free time this weekend, I headed to the dollar store and picked up a book and a 10'' foam wreath form. Check out Lindsay's link above for step by step directions.
I was able to complete the whole wreath while watching New Moon. (I know, I know. I'm 26 years old and LOVE the Twilight series.)
Eventually, it turned into this-
While I was out picking up the wreath supplies, I stopped by World Market for their Friends & Family Sale, which was 25% of EVERY decor item. I picked up a rug that I've been eyeing for awhile. I had originally picked out this rug from Pottery Barn for our entry-
However, I hesitated at the $129 price tag. So, when I saw this one at World Market-
for $80, I was ecstatic. After the 25% discount, it came to just $60, less than half the price of the Pottery Barn one. I came right home and layed the rug down and hung my new wreath in our entry.
Just for fun, let's take one look at the entry BEFORE:
I love the detail and variations of the colors in the rug.
I hung the book page wreath, a mirror left over from our dining room redo and a carved wood piece I found at a thrift store. I also used the newly painted table that I blogged about last week.
Another close-up of the wreath-
Here's a breakdown of everything-
Rug World Market $60
Table Thrifted $20
Curtains BB&B $10 on clearance
Scroll Kirklands $20
Mirror Michaels $10
Wreath DIY $2 supplies from Dollar Tree
Wood Art Thrifted $3 from Savers
Hurricane Old Time Pottery $15
Paint Home Depot $15 (used on front door and table)
Almost everything used, I already had on hand.
I'm really happy with the final look. It was certainly a challenge to bring style and art into such a small entry space, but I think I was able to achieve the look I was after.
Hope everyone's having a great week. love, S
