This was from the Dollar Store for $6-8. I forget how many things I used. The big succulents came in little flower pots instead of in the floral stick section. The only thing that wasn't purchased was the paper rose that I didn't use. It was from a swap.

What I was considering...

It's great, the plants are so oddly unexpected that you just have to take a second look. Very cool.

Very nice - it is a nice piece that would work for summer and fall.

Very nice wreath, and a pretty vibrant looking one at that.  I don't know a heck of a lot about plants, so, I don't recognize any of the species, but it's an attractive arrangement.  I like that you left the top half of the hoop bare too, rather than covering the whole thing, as that makes for a nice contrast and kind of gives it the feel of a planter in a circular window.

I suppose dollar stores stock different plants depending on what state you live in?  While I admittedly don't pay a whole lot of attention to that sort of thing, the flora on your wreath strikes me as being pretty different from the type of stuff I see in the aisles in my part of the country.
