Parade of wreaths

I love wreaths, but boy they are so expensive to buy!  I like buying them from thrift stores and changing them up.

I switch my wreaths out 5 times a year. One for each season, and one for Christmas in between fall and winter.

I've been thinking about my Christmas and winter wreaths coming up and what I would like to do/have/make.

Wreaths can be made out of anything! Take a look at some of my favorites:


I made a bird seed wreath years ago. Birds actually came and pecked at it! lol


One of these days when I can get lavendar to grow, I would love to make one of these!



Burnt marshmallows!  I love it!



This is a great way to up-cycle those burnt bulbs.


This one would look perfect on my home.  Our siding is a blue-grey.




Loving all the greenery and checked ribbon!

I love succulents! This would be a great summer wreath.


A lovely recycling newspaper wreath.



A classic!



I better get to drinkn' some wine!


This white frilly wreath is actually made out of coffee filters. The Virginia House posted a great tutorial on how she made hers. I think I will make this one and change it up some.  Mine will be made out of fabric minus the starfish.  I'll post it when I get it done.

What wreath was your favorite?  Do you switch your wreaths out for seasons? For every holiday? Do you make your own wreaths? Or purchase them?

Be sure to share your wreath with all of us!

  5. You found some real fun wreaths. I had a succulent wreath once, alot of work for me since I'm not a gardener. Good luck with your wreath project.
    Thanks for your visit to my blog.

  6. jennoreilly thanks for stopping by. Let me know if you make a new wreath.

    Kim I bet one made out of tootsie rolls would be great. Did you see all the candy corn wreaths last month?

    Susanne I've always wanted a succulent wreath, they are expensive even if you make your own though. Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Hi Lisa,

    I love the lavendar one. We change our wreaths for the holiday or season. Some I make and some I buy!

    I made this candy wreath one year using smarties and other candies that I got 1/2 price after halloween:
