Gotta love recycling and the free goods you get from it, eh? Since I didn't own a wreathe and I'm too cheap to buy one I made one using spare supplies i had sitting around: cardboard circle, plastic bags as stuffing, some awesome argyle plaid fabric, gold snowflake ribbon, red cording to hang it from and red/brown ribbon to make the bow. About 14inches tall and no sewing required, woohoo!

That looks great.  I think it is so creative being able to use stuff that's around and make it into something beautiful.  I like the plastic bag stuffing idea.

Thanks blueice! Yeah I always think about what I'm throwing away and if there's a creative way to morph it somehow.

I love it!  Great minds do think alike!  *ponders the extra fabric sitting all alone in the bin*

It turned out very nice!  I love those colors together as a festive decoration.
