Mesh wreaths

I decided that I needed a new wreath for my front door.  I have beautiful Christmas wreathed, fun fall door hangings and a beautiful Halloween wreath.  But during the summer it hangs bare.  

I have loved the fun mesh wreaths I see hanging all over and i knew they couldn't be to hard to make so I decided to try.  After spending $65 at hobby lobby here is what I came up with. 
This is my summery wreath, it really is more springish with the color choice.  I used an old wooden wreath that I purchased for $.25 at a second hand store as the background and anchored everything on with pipe cleaners.

This is the second wreath that is now hanging on my door for the next few weeks.

 The reason my purchase price was so much is because of all the sprays and spinners coming out of this wreath.  Yet I love it's look!

Now tonight I finally have time to quilt and quilt is what I am going to do.  This quilt has been waiting almost 5 months to be finished!

I'm linking this up with freshly pieced! WIP and Let's Bee Social

I love both of the wreaths. I haven't been brave enough to try one yet. There is a lady here in town that makes and sells them but she has a pretty hefty price on them. I'm too cheap, not that they aren't worth what she' asking.
