Fake Flower Wreath

June 17th, 2015 | Wreaths

I have to be honest, I have a thing for fake flowers. Mainly because it is winter here 80% of the time, and when flowers do come in season they last about 10 minutes. But not the fakies, they last for- like ever, and if you buy the nice ones some nearly look real! So what […]

Fun wreath idea- Tiny swimsuits on the clothesline
