I love wreaths!  I have them on my doors all year long!  Some of them I change out seasonally and others stay all the time.

Like this coffee filter wreath – one of my favorite wreaths of all time.

It hangs in our kitchen on the inside of the door to the garage all year long.  Did you get that?  – the INSIDE of the door! Smile  Wreaths don’t just belong on the outside of your doors for your friends and neighbors to see, but on the inside of your doors too, for you and your family to enjoy! Smile

And wreaths don’t always have to be hung on a door either!  They can be hung over a mirror or on a cute little wreath stand.

I got this wreath stand at a floral shop that was closing for $3.00 and I enjoy using it at different times on my fireplace to display wreaths.  It also works perfect for entertaining or parties to display a wreath on a table. Smile

But this little burlap fall wreath actually resides on my back door right now.  I made this wreath last year by wrapping some burlap garland around a foam wreath and then sticking and gluing some floral pieces into the the wreath.

It goes perfect next to my mantel and I love it! Smile

I made a pinecone wreath last year by gluing pinecones on a wicker wreath.  BUT, I stored it in the attic after the fall season was over and the hot glue melted in the heat. Sad smile  This little pinecone wreath I got a yard sale for a $1 and it is wired to a wire frame.  It is displayed on the inside of our front door for us to see. Smile

Of course, you saw my magnolia wreath on my front door. Smile  I posted how I made it here.  I change out the wreaths on my front door seasonally – you will see more throughout the year, I am sure. Smile

If you are looking for more ideas, I have tons of wreaths pinned on my Wreath board on Pinterest.

Here are some fun ideas:

Hydrangea wreath by V and Co.

Simple berry wreath from Ugly Duckling House

(made with 4 berry picks- you can get these for less than $1 when they are 50% off at Hobby Lobby)

 

Cinnamon stick wreath from Dilly Dallas

(Would definitely hang this one INSIDE so we could enjoy the fragrance Smile)

Indian corn wreath from BHG.com

These wreaths made out of yarn and cute felt flowers are popping up EVERYWHERE!  I am itching to make one. Smile Emily at Décor Chick made this oneand hung it over an old window – beautiful!

This wreath is on my to-do list too.  In fact I already bought the burlap, just need a free evening to do it.  My friend Laine from Just Laine created this one.

I will make this one day too – perfect for my laundry room.  I am keeping my eyes peeled at yard sales for cheap clothespins.  Clothespin wreath by Budget  Wise Home.

Book page wreath by Nester.  In fact if you want more ideas  check out Nester’s You made a wreath out of what?” party – lots of fun ideas!

And it doesn’t have to actually be a “wreath” – it can be a monogram (from etsy) …

Or a square wreath like Thrifty Décor Chick’s fall wreath made from Dollar Store leaves…

Or even a picture frame made into a wreath like this one from Sew Stormy

So many pretty ideas… so little time, and only so many doors in my house! Smile

  1. I found your blog through the 31 Days linkup, and I LOVE your posts – you’re making me think I can do some of the things you’re featuring, and getting me excited to see what sorts of finds I can make at the thrift stores. Now I want to find a deal on cinnamon sticks to make that wreath!

    • Christina says:

      Sheila,

      Welcome! So glad you found me! 🙂

      You CAN do them! 🙂 If I can do them, you can too! 🙂

      If you find a deal on cinnamon sticks, let me know. I think that wreath is going to be on my to-do list for Christmas this year.

  2. Very Nice Christina!!! I am slowly getting into this whole decorating thing and finding my style. I love making wreaths, just need to find some more supplies on sale!!!

    • Christina says:

      you are jumping in fast! 🙂 I can already tell a big difference in your house and pictures your post. 🙂 It is fun! 🙂 Check out some of the links in “you made a wreath out of what” party – some of them are almost free 😉 and I am working on a reurposing/something out of nothing post too – so look for some more ideas there.

    • Christina says:

      and you just gave me another idea – maybe I should work on a post or series of posts on FREE decor. Assuming you had glue, cardboard, paper, etc. on hand but not buying anything else – hmmm… sounds like a good challenge. 🙂

  3. OMG I never thought to hand wreaths inside. Brilliant!!!! I see so many cute wreaths, but there are only so many doors…. yippee!!!! New projects 🙂

    • Christina says:

      I love hanging them inside! 🙂 I have my downstairs doors taken care of but need to work on upstairs! 😉

  4. Thanks for posting my burlap wreath…so glad you like it! I have never hung a wreath on the inside of my door and you have definitely inspired me! And wow, that cinnamon stick wreath would be amazing! Mmmmm! I definitely want to make the clothespin wreath and a yarn wreath. I like the monogram too. Thanks for the great ideas!

    • Christina says:

      I can’t believe you haven’t hung a wreath inside! 🙂 They are so much fun! You will probably get yours done first – can’t wait to see! 🙂

  5. Love your wreaths! I usually only hang them at Christmas, but one of these days I may get around to making some of the cute ones everyone is always posting! I love the yarn and felt flowers one… I think it’s easy enough I could actually do it too! 🙂

    • Christina says:

      look on Pinterest – there are GOBS of yarn and felt ones! They are all so pretty! I could use some indoor spring wreaths so I might be trying one too. 🙂

  6. Oh, I love wreaths! I’ve seen a lot, but that clothespin one is new. I might have to make one of those soon. I love hanging wreaths inside.

  7. I love the berry pick wreath. I’ll have to watch our local craft stores. It’s so simple and elegant!

  8. Wanda Faith says:

    Your a sharp lady, just love your wreaths, they will be showing up on my doors soon.

  9. I found your website through Pinterest (gotta love pinterest!) and I’m so happy I did! You have so many clever ideas and the best part is you have a budget in mind! Cute decorations on a budget are sometimes hard to come by! Thanks!
    I’ll be putting wreaths on my inside and outside doors, inside mirrors and I have an empty wall in need of some spice so one is going there as well! Haven’t decided which is gonna go where yet. Hmm…

    • Christina says:

      ha! you sound like me! I think I would have a wreath in each room if I could (maybe 2)! 🙂 so glad you found my blog! 🙂 can’t wait to share some new big projects in the works soon…

  10. I just made three last night – tnahks for the tutorial. They took about an hour each from start to finish. I’ve got supplies to make 5 more – these are my holiday gifts this year 🙂

    sounds great!
