I love colorful Christmas wreaths and if I can't go for the fresh green ones (which can be expensive); I figured I would think outside of the circle so to speak.
These three wreath projects were inspired by a magazine article I read last year. I wish I would have worked on them sooner. I also liked the idea of reusing items I already had or were easily available. If I can get my act together, I may do the Christmas card wreath next year for my Girl Scout troop. I'll just have to remind everyone to save their Christmas cards. If anyone is interested in a tutorial, I'm happy to add that.
This is made with old Christmas cards and a large snowflake punch. I still haven't found the right bow for it.
This is made from old ties. I tried to stick with red, green and gold. I'm pretty happy with it, although looking at the picture, I realize my front door needs to be painted badly! : ) Oh well.
A different version of the tie wreath with more of a quilt colors feel.
I'm still playing with this wreath idea and trying to find the best way to hang it since it doesn't really hang in a circle. Still, I'm pretty happy with it. I used a thin metal wire and Christmas ornaments to tie together. I know I can do a better job with this, but wanted to get this up and see if anybody has any good ideas.
Thanks for looking. All comments and ideas are appreciated and welcome.
