Another Simple, Junky Spring Wreath...

Chipping with Charm: Junky Spring Wreath...http://chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com/

Is it just me, or is everything round starting to look like a wreath these days? 
Here's another simple idea for a junky little Spring wreath...

Something round...no clue what it is but it had holes in just the right places to thread my "tape measure" ribbon.

This adorable handmade tag came in a box with a couple of fun things I ordered from Amy at All Things Home.  You really should check out her Etsy shop.  I ordered a fun bag made out of a sugar sack and a cute little clutch.  The tag was a little "bonus" she send and it works perfectly in my wreath.  Thanks again Amy :)

And of course a little sheet music..."God Made the World".

I love these little clips...I embellish them and clip pretty little things all over the place.

And of course a key and a crystal right?

All hanging from a nail with the added touch of a little rusty washer and button magnet.  Another little trick I use everywhere to cover up an ugly nail.

And layered over this grate of some sort...done. 

So glad you stopped by!  I hope you'll leave me a comment and let me know you've been here :)
