Two ideas that I'm loving this year are:

1. take a polaroid camera. take pictures of several other wreaths. Stick them all to a wreath frame (your basic round metal ring type available at Michaels). Variation- take pictures of lots of other Christmas type items, or cut up old Christmas cards for this image wreath.

2. mini present wreath. get lost of odd sized mini boxes, wrap in bright wrapping paper and secure to wreath frame. If you need boz ideas, try jewelry boxes, little cereal boxes, the packages that like Zest comes in, etc.

I just like the non-traditional wreath. When I was a kid, my dad used to get lots of gifts from his business associates at Xmas time, and one thing that always stayed with me was the hard candy wreath. I always thought it was sooo cool to make something out of something unexpected... plus, you get to eat it afterward.

Whaddya think? Anybody else have nontraditional wreath ideas?

Promise that forever we will never get better at growing up and learning to lie...

girlscoutriot--i'm loving your polaroid idea!!  the hard candy one is one of my favs, too (hard candy glued to styrofoam wreath).  i'm thinking i should make one w/ holiday pez dispensers (i collect pez dispensers).  that'd be a cool way to show them off!!  how about one outta cookie cutters??  that'd be neat.  i'm all about the alternative wreaths, too.  hope to see more posts--hint, hint...

I love this idea so much that I registered just to reply!

I made a non-traditional and free wreath:
Bend a wire hanger into a circle.
Cut plastic grocery bags into strips (I used all Target bags). Tie randomly alternating groups of two, three and four strips onto the wire.
Bend the top hooky part down for a less visible hook on which to hang the wreath.

I gave it to a coworker who added the red ribbon.

i made one of these so called "angel wreaths" this weekend....... i think its pretty, and its soft. *yay*

it was rather affordable with 40% off joanns coupons

styrofoam wreath form wrapped in white ribbon, wrapped two feather boas *one big lush one, and a cheap maribou one) around and pinned in place, then hung a pretty silver star with "peace" engraved on it in the middle.

i cant wait until after thanksgiving to hang it up

I did the exact same thing for Halloween with a black boa and orange ribbon. I then added a spider charm to it all. I'm heading off to do my christmas one this week!
