It Pay To Be Cheap Contest

             This is my entry for the It Pays To Be Cheap contest over at Cheap Crafty Mama

I saw this wreath on Tip Junkie's blog site and thought it was super cute. So here is my version.I already had the felt which was given to me ( $0.00f for that), the hay wreath was purchased at a yard sale for a pack of 10 for $1.00( so $0.10 for that), the wire, holding the stars, was purchased at Michaels on clearance for $0.49 ( probably about $0.05 if that for the wire), and the stars were cut out of white card stock that I purchased for $1.50 for a pack of 50 on clearance at JoAnn's( so $0.03 for that). The patriotic ribbon was given to me ($0.00 for that). So for a grand total of  $ 0.18 I was able to make this lovely wreath. Can not beat that. I also made another one with Pittsburgh Steelers for the hubby for approx. the same price.

Well, thanks for stopping by and checking out my cheap and crafty project. Happy Crafting!!

Happy 4th of July!!!!!!!!!

Happy 4th of July to all my fellow crafters!!

        Today is a day for us all to celebrate our wonderful country and freedom. Also, it is a day for us to thank all those awesome service women and men that have helped to continue those freedoms. Furthermore, it is a day for us to pray for those service women and men that have not been able to come home to their families and to pray for those that have and continue to need out prayers. For those that are home continue to relive those awful days and need our support. So I say THANK YOU and GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!!

Now on to my craft for the 4th .....

     This idea came from one of my blogs that I follow, Organizing Homelife. I changed it up a little from hers. I cut the squares 2x2 and hot glued instead of pinned. I will have a step by step photo tutorial soon on one that I made for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Well, now onto eating celebrating!!! LOL
