a little wreath

Hiya girls
A few days ago myself and hubby were in Poundland having a nosey.  I love a good rummage around in there although it's not very often I find anything other than shampoo and deodorant ect.  
They had smashing wee twig wreaths, horrid didn't even cover it lol.  The ornaments on them were trully gross but I spotted the potential.  Hubby I have to say was not impressed.  Anyway, further round I found some silver flower sprays with a few baubles attached, into the basket one of those went too.

Once I'd taken everything apart I set about making a wreath of my own.
A bit of bling and some string pearls from me stash, a silver ribbon and the job was done.  Not too bad for two quid is it?  
It looks lovely hanging against my pale grey wall :)
