I have a healthy obsession with wreaths. Sweet and simple. Whimsical or personal. I wanted to make wreaths from the fall changing Hydrangeas Mopheads last year but ran out of time. That does not deter my desire for a new wreath or two in our home for the New Year. Store bought or handmade, something new and joyful to be enjoyed year ‘round.
I look around and imagine places to hang them. China cabinet windows, bathroom mirrors, garden gates, tiny ones hanging from drawer pulls, front door or in the backyard for our tiniest friends.
What to make them out of? That is as expansive as your imagination. Legos, paper leaves, dried oranges, apple slices, brussell sprouts or radishes … rosemary, twigs, newspaper, shopping bags, faux tulips, common cotton balls, coffee filters, popcorn kernels, split peas, handmade paper flowers, gum drops, peppermints, rock candy, straws, moss, chili peppers, fabric strips, buttons, wine corks, ferns, feathers, sea glass, Ping Pong balls or styrofoam balls. A trip to your local dollar store, a walk in the park or local beach might inspire you. Bathroom counters, sewing room, kitchen pantries or Top Food bulk candy section.
Sweet wreaths in mint or cinnamon can be found on the Food Network.
terrain have some wonderful wreaths for sale. My favorite has layers of overlapping ochre leaves.
Maybe something rusty is more your style? This is a cute idea and simple idea from Funky Junk Interiors, rusty canning jar lids or old barbed wire? (The Texas girl in me giggles with these possiblities).
This is the time of year to make and share a birdseed wreath.
I have a Pinterest board dedicated to wreaths, go get inspired!
