Photo collection: Sustainable wreath ideas

Posted on Dec 8, 2011 | 4 Comments

As part of ‘Wreath Week’, I thought it would be fun to see what wreaths we could find based on sustainable principles. Focusing on recycled and ‘upcycled’ materials, I found some interesting and whimsical examples:

DIY-jingle-bell-wreath
Reused jingle bells make a nice sounding jingle and don’t sit in a box until next Christmas. Throw in some fuzz balls for a softer look.

Love this wreath. Save up on wine bottle corks to make a modern wreath.

This wreath made of ties, is just fun. Great for a man cave!

I like how this wreath uses newspaper in German Star origami shapes. For the how-to, visit Linaloo.com.

    I want to see where the neck tie wreath came from, on how to assemble.. Where did it come from?
