Dollar Store Wreath

My front door needed some cheering up!! We have a plain white door and this year I wanted to brighten it up a little. I made a special trip to Dollar Tree and bought the "fixins" for a wreath to make the door look a little more like summer.

I bought 4 or 5 bunches of "permanent" flowers (some call them fake flowers, but since they never die they are permanent!!) and the wreath.

This is the kind of wreath I used, not sure what it is called. I was pretty surprised that they had the bigger size there.
Then I used my trusty hot glue gun and created the final product. My daughter and I bonded while doing this, she helped me the placement of each flower. So I guess this is her design. The sunflowers are my favorite, but I don't think there are enough of them on the front! It turned out pretty well for only spending $5 on the entire project!! Thanks for looking.
