The Modern Wreath

One of the newest trends that I have been keeping my eye on is the modern wreath. So here is my first attempt at a cheap, but chic modern wreath.

The Modern Wreath

This wreath cost me about $25 to make. All of the supplies came from Hobby Lobby. Of course you have to buy each item when it is on sale to get a good price – so it may take you two weeks and separate shopping trips to get all of your supplies on sale.

I used gold jewelry wire and gold spray paint that I had at home from previous crafts. The only other supplies you need is a steel ring (approx. $4) to form your wreath and your choice of flowers!

This is a great and easy DIY to make that will brighten up the look of the inside or the outside of you house!

Early Riser Breakfast

I am someone who gets up at bright and early every morning because my workday typically starts at 6:30 am.

I love mornings, but getting up for them can be tough enough without having to cook a good meal to get me through a ten hour shift. Over the last year, I have been experimenting with ways to eat a healthy breakfast without having to sacrifice my time for it. I have tried everything from fasting (lets not do that again), to meal prepping baked eggs in a muffin tin, or even just drinking a primer protein drink that mixed into my coffee. But this recipe for a early riser breakfast has been by far my favorite easy meal for the morning. This meal keeps me full all morning long, taste absolutely delicious, and I can even eat it in my car or at work.

  • 1 c rolled oats
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 c – 1 c coconut milk
  • 1 tbs peanut butter
  • 1/2 or 1 small banana
It’s not the most eye pleasing, but my belly sure appreciated it!

I mix these ingredients up in a sealed container and place in my fridge overnight. All you have to do in the morning is grab a spoon and go! And don’t forget your coffee!
