Spring Wreath Revamp

I've seen so many cute wreaths on other blogs and in the future I want to make my own completely "from scratch" but for the sake of saving money, I created this one using stuff that I already had.

The wreath was actually given to me by dad.  It was on his front door for a while, and then it got transferred to the attic.  And rather than selling it at a yardsale for $2 or something, he asked me if I wanted it.  Of course I said yes!  And since then the wreath has adorned our front door for the past 2 springs and summers.  But I really wanted something a little different for spring...something to add a  little more color, so I simply added some pink flowers and voila! 

Here's a picture of what the wreath looked like before.  I love the berries, but some of them are starting to fall off.  (Actually we got a glass door installed last year, and before it was installed the wreath was "exposed" to the outside, and birds frequently landed on it and tried to eat the berries, so I'm not surprised that they're falling off.)  And again, I felt that it needed some color.

I had these two flower springs on hand. I believe these were 94 cents at Wal-Mart.  I added these to the wreath using the easiest method ever! 

I thought I might want to do something different with the wreath in the future, so I didn't even use glue. I simply cut the flowers, leaving about 3-4 inches of the stem. (You'll need wire cutters for this.) And then I wove the stems in through the wreath. Very easy!  And it looks so great from the outside!
