Even though it’s technically still summer, it sure does feel like fall with the kids going back to school and that tinge of crispness in the air. So, for today’s Trash to Treasure Thursday, we thought it fitting to present these 6 favorite upcycled wreath ideas. Use them as inspiration to create a festive autumn design, or Pin this and come back for ideas closer to the holidays.
Wreath Idea 1: Paper
Even though we’ve cut out junk mail, our house still seems to be bursting at the seams with paper. Whether it’s leftover beach magazines, newspapers, or hard copies of books that we can now enjoy digitally, paper is certainly plentiful over here. Good thing that it makes a great muse for seasonal wreath making, especially with kids!
Wreath Idea 2: Fabric
My husband is a teacher and our end-of-summer routine typically involves combing through his work wardrobe and divvying it up into keep, donate and “?”. Here are two great inspirations to take care of that ? pile:
Wreath Idea 3: Photos
While it might be pushing it a bit to consider this one an ‘upcycled’ project, it’s such a great and easy idea that I wanted to include it anyway. This is definitely on my to-do list for a year-round wall decoration.
Wreath Idea 4: Jar Lids
Jumped on the canning bandwagon and decided it’s not for you? Here’s a good use for those jar lids. (This project requires an adult to drill holes in the wreath; kids can help string them.)
Wreath Idea 5: Plastic Spoons
Seriously! What a great way to teach kids that trash can literally be treasure – have them keep an eye out for colorful utensils at this season’s tailgates and Halloween parties and then turn that collection into a unique wreath.
Wreath Idea 6: Cookies
As if we needed an excuse to bake cookies… have fun making the cookie leaves with your children and then transforming them into a (delicious) wreath!
What type of wreath(s) will you be making this season? Share your ideas in the comments!
