Rustic Wood Wreath

I always love a creative idea for decorating your front door, and this wreath from DIY Kinda Girl Heather is just that! Heather’s used a bag of wood discs she’d cut up from her pruning to make a unique rustic wreath.

Heather got the look by attaching a little over four hundred discs to a raffia wreath covered with brown felt. This is such a great look for winter – very earthy and cabin-like. It has me wondering what else could be covered with these little wooden discs…

Newspaper Wreath

I am kind of embarrassed to admit that I get a newspaper every Sunday but never actually read it. I immediately pull out the ads and coupons and then chuck the rest of the paper right into the recycling bin. Keri from Pressed Down, Shaken Together shares a fabulous way to upcycle your newspaper (whether you read it or not!).


Keri cut her newspaper into strips and then twisted it around a wreath form to make a really cool wreath. I agree with Keri that the paper almost looks like scraps of fabric with the bits of color peeking out. You can create your own unique, ecofriendly newspaper wreath for less than five bucks.
