Refurbished Christmas Wreath

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

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.

And I think the best part, other than enjoying the renewed beauty, is that it's one less treasure in the landfill.

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" ;.}
