I am little bit in love with those decorative jewel stones you can get at the Dollar Tree. Right now, DT stocks them in lovely shades of blues and greens that scream "SUMMER!" to me. I used some of the rectangular ones as vase filler in my living room because I think they sorta look like sea glass.
I had a brilliant idea to buy a whole mess of these stones in order to make a lovely, glittering summer wreath for our front door. The ribboned lovebird wreath was starting to get a little sad-looking, so it was time for a change. I picked up a styrofoam wreath and several POUNDS of the stones when I last stopped in at the Dollar Tree.
When I got home, I eagerly ripped open the packages of stones and heated up my glue gun. One by one, I glued large and small blue, teal, and green glass stones to the wreath.
