Fabulous & Creative Wreaths.... Part Trois

You know it's the Holidays when wreaths begin to magically pop up on peoples doors...

I am obsessed with a good wreath and the one in the picture above has to be one of my ALL time favorites...
It was created by the flower whisperer herself, Miss Yumiko of Hana Floral Design, for a Winter Wedding Shoot that I designed back in 2009.

So.. for Part Trois of the Fabulous and Creative Wreath roundup, I decided to go in the direction of "found items".
These are wreaths that can be made with ANY object that is found either natural or man-made..

 The Sea

Living by the sea, we have boxes, bags and jars and filled to the brim with shells...
Unfortunately on the Connecticut Coastline, there is a lack of the exotics...
What we are left with are mussels, jingles, clams, oysters and the famous Stonington scallop...
But I think you might agree..
That they can be just as lovely too...

The Pinecone

Pinecones are a plenty here in the Northeast...
You can't walk anywhere without stepping on one..
I am amazed at just how many different kinds there are..
Whether they are painted, gilded, glittered or au natural..
They certainly stir up Holiday spirit...

The Herb

I just brought in my rosemary plant in hopes that I may use her all winter long for cooking...
But she would look and smell just as lovely as a simple wreath...
How about a eucalyptus wreath in the bathroom?!

The Junk Drawer & The Kitchen

You are sure to have these items around...
Random tacks, apples, spent Christmas bulbs, peppermint candies from your purse and the credit cards that need to be snipped...
They look much prettier as a wreath than in that dreaded messy junk drawer...
