From trash to treasure, I love finding old things that can be transformed into something new. I found an old wreath at a garage sale made from straw and held together with wire, and used some things I had around the house to make a beautiful Christmas wreath. Inexpensive and with my own touch

How nice, very good work.
I love this idea! I did the same thing with a store bought fall wreath. After a couple of years, some of the items on it were lost. I filled the spaces with various pine cones using florist wire. Looks like new!
Good for you! That's definitely trash to treasure! I love the idea of recycling.

Sometimes you have to add something extra, in the design trade they call it "fluffing". I got an Christmas wreath for a neighbor at a dollar store, but it looked bare. So I added some fresh pine branches, foliage and some bittersweet, tied on with some gold ribbon. Wow! it really turned out great! (So consider adding your own touch and "fluffing" ;.}
