Made this Wreath and I'm in a Magazine!

I made this wreath yesterday. By the time
I was finished, my hands were
raw from the burlap!

I made the bow out of burlap and vintage fabric.
The wreath is so gnarly and full, I love it
but am selling it in my
gotta pay the bills you know...

My star ornaments are in this current issue of
Better Homes and Gardens
in the grocery stores!
I sold these in my paper store
last year.

they posted the instructions....
...and decorated this tree with them,
I love this idea, wish I had
thought of it!!!

Have a great day full
of wonderful surprises!
