Burlap Halloween Junk Wreath

This wreath was made from junk.  I picked up a free round drop sink at a garage sale.  I wanted to use the sink to plant flowers for my front entry.  The round metal part from the sink was no longer in tact, and I really didn't need it for what I was using the sink for.  I almost threw it in the garbage, but then decided maybe I could make a fall wreath from it.  I used burlap I had on hand, my trusty glue gun and some buttons.  This is what I came up with.  I bought a $1 black bird from a dollar store and the sign (inside the wreath) was also $1 at the same dollar store.  I like how it turned out.  "Junktabulous!:
