Christmas "Wreath"

Several months ago I came across this idea for a Christmas "wreath" at a blog called Pink Postcard and I loved it.  I saved the link to refer back to later because I knew for sure I wanted to steal copy her idea. 

Back in May I found the bicycle baskets at a yard sale for $5.  One side is being used as a magazine holder in our upstairs bathroom.  The other half has just been sitting in the attic waiting for Christmas.

I bought a little spray of greenery and berries at Walmart for $3 and filled the rest in with leftover trimmed branches from our tree.  I added twine to hang it by and a bow.  Yes, I know my bow making skills leave much to be desired, but I'm pretending it adds to the "rusticness" of it all.  I shaped my old wooden folding ruler into a star and tucked that in as well. 

Look at all that rusty goodness!

It took me all of about 5 minutes to put together, only cost me $3, and I am LOVING it!
