I am a dollar store addict so when I saw this challenge I got really excited and went a little crazy in the brain with ideas.  In fact this challenge turned out to be a real challenge for me because I had to limit myself to one idea.  I decided that since we (my boyfriend and I) were hosting a 4th of July party, decorations was the direction to go in.  I am not usually a wreath type of person but I was browsing pintreat and saw a really cool 4th of July wreath and inspiration was born.  

I didn't take a picture of what I bought but the list is:

4 packages of different sized Styrofoam balls
1 twig wreath
1 string of red, white and blue stars

From my stash I used:

blue, white and red spray paint
rebar wire
cardboard
silver scrapbook paper

The don't always like how things I make turn out but I am pretty proud of this one.  It is completely crazy but the 4th is all about fireworks and I think the theme is carried out in this wreath.  I had to take a picture of it not on the door because my front door isn't the greatest.







***update*** the wreath survived the party...gotta love that dollar store!

Really fun idea! 

The stars remind me of exploding fireworks and the colors will work for several holidays Cheesy
