The secret to a designer look is to mix materials, never use "just" silk or "just" dried, your materials need to be combined
You can transform a inexpensive, big box store type wreath, that looks cheap, into an artistic masterpiece by simply adding a variety of dried materials to it.
You can easily make a business out designing without having to go to a wholesaler for supplies if you shop the sales right. I did it for years and made money out of my home studio.
Hobby Lobby, Michaels and other big craft stores routinely have after season sales of up to 80% off on silks.
