Christmas Thrifty and Crafty

This will be my only attempt at a holiday craft this year, but I kinda like how it turned out.

It took about 5 minutes and cost under $5 because I already had a few of my own added embellishments.

The fresh wreath with a few embellishments already on it was on sale at Costco for $4.00 (and hidden way in a back corner – maybe left to die?).  I had four red candles so I added those and then I filled a glass bowl with a few green sprigs from the yard (one of the reasons to live in the Pacific Northwest around Christmas time!), added some frozen cranberries, water, and a floating candle.

Now I’m just waiting for the Christmas spirit to come upon me………….
