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!!
