If you happen to have a pool noodle lying around (yep, I see all those nodding heads) then you are going to love this! With summer on the way, Camille realized that she didn't have "a nice red, white, and blue decoration to celebrate Memorial Day or Independence Day." So at Growing up Gabel she's showing us how she quickly turned a pool noodle into a sparkly, patriotic wreath, using duct tape and a few goodies from the dollar store.
Andrea asked an excellent question at Scrapality while thinking about making a cute garden hose wreath: "Why purchase a hose when you can pick up a discarded hose for free?" Why, indeed! She found plenty during a spring-time "curbside shopping" trip and was able to make not one but two springtime wreaths! If you love to garden (or love a gardener) you'll want to check this out!
Lisa thought she'd found acorns on a walk with her family, but she had "never seen anything like them." She and her girls gathered a stroller full and brought them home. After Lisa turned her "acorns" into a gorgeous metallic wreath, a few sharp-eyed readers at Mabey She Made It identified them as eucalyptus seed pods. Whatever they are, they look amazing on Lisa's front door!
Wreaths are fun to hang on the door any time of year, but they are especially meaningful during the Christmas season. This week at Roadkill Rescue, we'll be celebrating the season with festive wreath projects that honor the spirit of Roadkill Rescue: they are made out of free, found, or upcycled materials. Stay tuned for Wreath Week!
I love seeing things that people make from objects they've found in nature. One of my current favorite trends along these lines is the use of wood slices to make natural looking decor items. Here's a gorgeous wreath that Laura of Finding Home put together using wood slices from a fallen birch branch.
