Garden Hose Wreath

I've seen a couple of wreaths made from garden hoses, and because I'm so cheap thrifty, I knew I had to make one myself. I got the old hose at a garage sale for a dollar. It was just the right length to make the wreath the size and thickness I wanted...perfect color for me too! Then I used flowers from a bush from Hobby Lobby. It was purchased with the gift cards I get from using my Hobby Lobby credit card...1/2 off because I am cheap thifty even with gift card purchases. The twigs, nest, and berries are from some garlands my sweet sister-in-love gave me.
I'm pleased with it. My sweetie, on the other hand does not see the beauty! He is usually my biggest fan, but this time he just shook his head and wanted to know why I would want to hang an old hose on the door.
