I thought the $359 dollar wreath from Grandin Road was bad enough. When I was looking through the fall catalog of Williams-Sonoma, I couldn’t help but want to make another Copy DIY.

I made a little challenge for myself:
To recreate this wreath for $10 in 10 minutes. How did I do?
First, the cost breakdown. Since I already had plenty of black spray paint on hand, I didn’t include it in the total cost. When I purchased the supplies, nothing was on sale – it was all full price. I’m sure you could do this even cheaper with sale items and a coupon or two.
Minute 1: Gather materials.
Minutes 2-3: Spray paint the wreath with black spray paint. It only took a few seconds and I spray painted each side twice. I didn’t include drying time in with my challenge. Just active time.
Minutes 4-6: The moss was not attached to itself. So I had to figure out a way to make it stick. I poured Modge Podge over top of it. Now, I would not recommend this because it didn’t work all that great. But I have no clue how to get a big glob of moss to stick to itself. TOTAL hack job. Again – didn’t include drying time!
Minutes 7-9: I tied wire around the moss, and then the crow.
Minute 10: Hang on door and admire!
And of course after all of the pictures are uploaded and edited, I noticed that you can really see the wires, so at press time, they have been given a quick touch of black paint to hide them.
So what do you think? How close is the copy? Do you think you can make this too?

Feel free to order the $69.95 wreath from Williams-Sonoma. Or take $10 dollars and 10 minutes and make your own. Just sayin!
Love, hugs, and quoth the raven, “Nevermore.”
