Pottery Barn Knockoff

Oh Pottery Barn, how I love thee...but dang it! Why can't you be just a wee-bit more affordable? I was browsing through the pages of the Pottery Barn catalog when I saw this wreath which was super cute!

But for some reason I just couldn't justify spending $79 on a cute wreath. I have seen other bloggers do imitations of things and I thought that I could try my hand at making this.

JoAnn's just happens to have plain wreaths on sale...I bought a 20" Canadian Pine Wreath for $1.99. Then I made a stop at WalMart to get some blue & silver ornaments for about $11, and picked up some green floral wire for $1.79. Here is what I came up with:

Not bad for less than $20 and I still have some ornaments leftover. I have to say that I am happy with the way it turned out!
Edited to add:
I think I am addicted! I made the red & silver wreath just for fun...I'm not sure where it is going to go. Then my neighbor came over the other day and said how much she liked my wreath...When I told her that I had made it she asked if I could show her how because she wants to make one for her door too! Last night she came over with her 2 daughters and we had a little arts & crafts class. I made the purple, pink and green wreath last night in class. They all walked out with their own wreaths and they all turned out great!
