My little ones first birthday was a sock monkey theme. I wanted to do something special for the front door that was reasonable to make . I took a straw wreath which was $2.99 then I used my 40% off coupon at Joann Fabric. Then wrapped red and brown yarn around the wreath. I make the wreath monkeylishous by tying a sock monkey that I had purchased at Target at their after Christmas sale, when all items were 50% off. The longest part of creating the wreath was the wrapping process. Wholla, a cheap, quick and easy wreath.
