Recycle Your Holiday Wreath


I've decided that I would like to make my own Holiday Wreath next year. After taking down this year's wreath, I realized how many good useable parts it had, that I could reuse for next year. You can see what I was left with on my blog http://www.graphicsfairy-diy.com/2013/01/recycle-reuse-your-holiday-wreath.html

This is how it looked while it was fresh, I'm hoping I can recreate it next year!

    Heh Heh....I scored 2 old wreaths when we took down the Christmas decorations at our animal shelter so now I don't feel so bad about putting mine in the trash. The basic rings are different that what I've seen before. They have sets of double prongs all the way around the wreath form so you don't have to wire the branches on! Made it a project to open the prongs and get the old stuff out. I'll have to see next year how difficult it will be to redo the wreath using the prongs. Guess if it doesn't work, there's always wire!

    I've used a bike rim (without the spokes) wrapped in a dark green tee shirt, and branches from plastic artifical christmas tree decorated with bow and flowers. Cover with a garment bag for storage and hang in the attic ....no mess in cleaning up the pine needles...
