~thrifty Thursday~ {outdoor bones wreath}

Did you see this wreath in the latest Pottery Barn catalog?

Anticipating a busy fall season for us, I decided to make this way ahead of the season, so when the time comes, it will be all ready for me!

It's $79.00 at Pottery Barn and I made it for under $20.00, here is how:

I picked up this wire wreath form at Michaels arts and crafts. It was green and I spray painted it white.
They come in different sizes. The one I chose was 18"
You will also need wire and wire cutters.

This bag of bones is the plastic kind and I also got it at Michaels using a 40% off coupon.
You'll need a drill with a small drill bit too.

I laid my pieces out on the table first.
This is when I realized I didn't have enough.
A trip up to my attic solved that problem!
I supplemented with foam bones, probably purchased at the dollar store.
I will say, the plastic was easier to work with.

After everything is laid out, use your drill to drill 2 holes close to each other and feed the wire through. Then simply wire the pieces onto the wreath form.
When I was almost done I ended up hot glueing some of the lighter foam pieces on top of other pieces for dimension.

And here it is!
My version of the Pottery Barn Outdoor Bones Wreath.
