Reeling and Wreathing

On the To-Do list: Wreath – make one. Here are some ideas to have me reeling. IF I make one.......... AND it looks okay........ I'll show you. The simple red one above is made from paddlepop sticks found on the happy home blog. Which is also where you'll find a tutorial for this recycled book wreath below.

 I love this yarn and pom pom wreath by Ali at one pearl button 
There's a great tutorial for a  multi pom pom wreath here

Below is recycled tie wreath from Good Housekeeping

Recycled jumper wreath from Recover girl

A newspaper wreath from The House that Lars Built

And then there are edible wreaths like the lovely red an white one below from Gwynne Wasson Designs

And some more from food network

The marshmallow one would last two seconds at our place and isn't very practical is it? But the cinnamon one would smell spicy and warm.

So the first thing I need to think of is what I have a lot of (besides children and general debris!)
