'Tis the season to take down that holiday wreath

Confession time everyone: I still have our holiday wreath hanging on the front door.  Sure, it is small and it doesn’t by any means scream Christmas in February, but still.  As it is almost March it is definitely time to replace it with a more Spring/Summer appropriate look. Even if the weather doesn’t seem to think so. I think one of these paper wreaths would be a nice addition to our black door, and would be really fun to make!

Top to bottom: Recycled Magazine Wreath (this wreath is sewn together, I think I will take the easy way out with a wreath form and a hot glue gun), Circle Punch Paper Wreath (the instructions are for a holiday wreath but since you can easily adjust the color palette it can be made for any season),  and Looped Paper Wreath (another holiday idea but again with the right paper anything goes!)

Inspired to play with paper but don’t need a wreath? Try your hand at a Junk Mail Starburst Clock.

    …I finally told myself to recycle my old magazines…they are sitting in a stack at my front door…now I’m thinking I need to keep them a little longer to make a wreath! :)

    So cool – that magazine wreath looks very similar to the junk mail clock I posted. Love it! xo

    That’s so funny, I literally just took down our christmas wreath! I left it up for valentines weekend because it was red but I won’t get away with leaving it up much longer…

    Haha. I couldn’t agree more with the time to change it up thing and did a post on this myself recently. I live in the midwest and we are still covered up in snow so flowers don’t seem appropriate yet but these are fun whimsical options. Thanks for sharing.
