I’d love to be able to show you some nifty eco friendly Xmas wreaths I have expertly crafted from all manner of found, recycled and sustainable materials, but alas the gene that carries this kind of creative prowess is buried deep down – dormant. What I am great at however, is living vicariously through others. So instead, today I wish to share with you the designs other people with a strong creative gene pool have come up with.
Not only a talented kids book writer, Canberra based Tania McCartney also excels in all things handmade – particularly this wreath made from old Xmas book pages. Check out her blog for a number of “how to” tutorials.
Offering a variation on the “cone” theme, using old music sheets is another great idea by Etsy seller RoseFlower48.
Simple circles but an effective and modern take on the Xmas wreath that we LOVE by Jeffrey Ruddell.
Suitable for both Xmas or all year round decoration, use magazine pages and twirl them around a thin paintbrush handle – by the Rag and Bone Boutique.
The Red Thread from Sydney offer a number of “How To” tutorials using a variety of materials from paper off cuts to doilies – offers great inspiration and basic techniques for you to create your own special wreath.
This is the wreath I covet (or perhaps the yellow version… or the circle wreath above – I digress). Made by New York based Etsy show owner Abaseabound.
So there’s the best of eco Xmas wreaths in my humble opinion. I hope that offers a little inspiration for your Xmas decorating this year. If you have come up with any eco Xmas decorating tips of your own, we would love you to share them with us!
