Easiest Wreath Ever and a Fun Magazine Feature!

I had a nice little surprise this week...a feature in Woman's World magazine! They contacted me a while back about my NO-SEW FABRIC WREATH and decided to feature it in their Mother's Day issue! What fun! I have to say that the popularity of this wreath has really been surprising for me! Maybe it's because it's just sooo very easy and fun to make!

Hi everyone and welcome back to The Scoop! We've been enjoying beautiful weather here and I have gone against my usual "Don't plant before Mother's Day" habit! Yep...my patio is now ready for spring and summer! And I have been busy playing with faux succulents and creating my POTTERY BARN INSPIRED FAUX SUCCULENT WREATH... at 1/4 the cost of theirs! I hope you will check it out!
And now I want to see what you have been up to, so let's get on with the party!

Pottery Barn Inspired Faux Succulent Wreath

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Faux Succulent WreathI have been wanting a faux succulent wreath for my front door for quite a while now but the price has always been prohibitive. So you know I fell in love when I saw the one at Pottery Barn, but at $100...yikes!...once again it was out of reach! The sheer number of plants that I would need to make my own even made a DIY version too expensive. Then I made a surprising discovery that finally made this wreath affordable!
