Birds of a Feather. Birthdays and a New Wreath.

~ Hello friends! ~
How is your week going so far? Mine is going pretty well. We have a lot of birthdays in my family at the end of March, so last night we did a combined celebration of three of them, mine, Mr W's and my father in law's. There are four all together, but my little nephew lives out of state, so we have to send gifts and call on his birthday. Mr W and I have a week between ours, and my father in law and nephew's birthday's are in between. Confused? Haha! It CAN be a bit overwhelming for us all.

Today I thought I would share a wreath I made a few weeks ago. It was time to get my craft on again, and I LOVE it! It was such a simple project, but often, those are the best.
Here it is...
These are the supplies I used...
 A few months ago I found a long feather garland wrapped up in a bag at home Goods on sale for $3!
 They are all attached to a rope with a little loop at the end.
 I love the look of these feathers.
 I bought a small grapevine wreath and some brown pipe cleaners for a little over 3 bucks at Jo Ann's with a coupon I had. I wanted to be able to remove the feather garland to use for something else if I got tired of the wreath, and I decided to attach it with pipe cleaners.
 Easy Peasy!
 It took like 2 minutes to make. My kinda project!
 I added a scrap of brown satin ribbon at the top.
 It hangs over my little antique hutch. Dont you love that old telephone sign? You would not believe me if I told you how little I paid for that at the thrift store. Ready? Ok, $3. Yep! Three is my lucky number, people! My birthday is 3/31/--.  I. am. not. telling. the. year. A-hem.
 I even tucked a little bird in there, but decided I liked the bird better on the backet below it.

 It's actually a Pottery Barn christmas ornament, but I left one out for display.
So that's my easy 2 minute six dollar wreath. I love it!
Have a fabulous Wednesday!
