Target Rosewood Wreath knock-off

I go to Target at least once a week. I consider it necessary for survival, and I have probably saved myself several visits to a psychologist just by walking through those endearing red doors.

There is an aisle at this wonderful store that is nestled between the books and stationary. It has wreaths, glass hurricanes, and beautiful door mats. I have only bought one thing from this aisle, and that was on sale. On this particular aisle of my therapeutic Target, I found a beautiful wreath.

It was 40$. I don't know about you, but it sounds like a challenge to me!

I stumbled upon one of those blogs you wish was secretly yours so you could have followers in the thousands, and I found this.

Although I love book creations, I happened to see a roll of brown paper in our lovely garage.

I followed the tutorial, and I "eyeballed" my swirls instead of drawing a pattern.

The swirls became rosettes...

And the rosettes became a wreath.

I have it hanging on a random nail over our garden tub in the master bathroom. Its home will be between our two mirrors in the bathroom, but I couldn't wait to take the pictures.

As the tutorial blog stated, this is tedious. I love the finished product, and you could even spray paint it whatever color you fancied!!!

Happy Monday!

Amazing. I would have paid the $40...but I hate all things crafts.

Wow! That looks awesome!! I want to do one, now. I'd have to spray paint, mine, though...because I need something to hang over our bed, and white...would be perfect!

Great Job on the wreath - I saw that last week and though I bet I could make that! HA

I can't wait to feel better so maybe we will see each other again!
