Split Pea Wreath

I finally put a wreath up on the front door. I have officially moved in!
I saw on one of the million craft blogs that I look at everyday, that someone had made those awesome decorative balls with split peas. Love the idea. So I thought I could do it with a wreath.
Got me a Styrofoam wreath from Michael's with my 45% off coupon (oh yeah!!)

2 bags of split peas from Walmart $0.79 a bag!
And I only used about 1 ish.

Made a mess with glue and peas. I think I will be finding these around the house for weeks. I found one stuck to my arm this morning when I woke up. Yeah..we slept together;)
When I got all the peas on I gave it a spray with some gloss finishing spray stuff. How is that for vague. I was trying to really set the peas.

Gave it a flower and hung with ribbon. I am in love.

Oh and don't be jealous of my lovely taupe flat front door! We do live in military housing after all. I just may give this door a face lift sometime soon....
