DIY Crayon Wreath & Shopping Steals!

Monday I posted on my new crate seats and totally forgot to include a picture of the finished product!  DUH!  Here you go:

This is a project I found through Pinterest and it was too cute not to attempt!  P.S. This project cost me under $5!  Score :)
I only ended up using 3 boxes of crayons.  ($0.40/ea. at Target!)

I organized the crayons in a rainbow pattern because I'm OCD like that.

Labels forward make for a neat wreath! :)
I like how my wreath turned out but I still need to add some embellishments.  Maybe some ribbon or something with my name on it?  Send your ideas my way!

I went to the mall today with some of my birthday coupons and gift cards.  I was hoping to find at least one good deal and I left with quite a few!  I had some return credits to Macy's as well as a $10 off coupon for my birthday month.  I ended up getting a super soft throw for the family room and a couple decorative pillows that match our bedding.  The pillows are normally $36/ea. and I got 2 for $8!!!!  (Our bedding is the color on the far right.)
I also got a dress from H&M that was marked down from $50 to $10!!  I had been eying this dress for a while so I was really lucky that I found it in my size and on clearance!  The only pic I could find of the dress is in someone's style board thing from Google:

I also got a few things from Wet Seal with a return credit I had.  Yellow L/S cardigan, teal tube top with button accents, basic gray v-neck.  Sorry no pics :(

What deals have you found lately?

You could add wooden letters for your name or add wooden school supplies. You can find them at Hobby Lobby or Michael's. I just made a pirate wreath...I'll post soon so you can see the wooden items I'm talking about!

I like the way the wreath came out! What about some ribbon with your name on it made from small wooden letters?

The wreath looks awesome!

P.S. I love your little pups! They are sooo cute. I love how they always pose for the picture. :) My Yorkie never wants to cooperate.
