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.
As a crafter, I am always looking for ways to incorporate green crafting into my crafts, using recycled materials whenever I can. Recently I realized that one could turn old vinyl record jackets and an empty packaging box into a sturdy base for a wreath. A great money saver!
I have seen a garden wreath made out of a length of hose. Secure it with wire or strong twine, add a bow and some silk flowers and vines for interest and you have a lovely decoration for your garden shed or fence.
Save your old artificial Christmas trees to make a wreath. Cut 1/2 inch plywood into a donut shape, the size will vary according to how big you want it. Paint it green.

This takes a wire coat hanger, and a box of 25 of the thinner gallon size plastic bags (not Zip-loc)
A beautiful Christmas wreath can be made by covering a bicycle tire with chicken wire, then weaving pieces of evergreen boughs through it. Then attach a brightly colored ribbon and anything else that you wish to add. By Katz
