Christmas Wreath 2012

After Countess Papera Ephemera made her appearance this Halloween, I was given by friends and family several bags of unused coffee filters. Like me, they had changed coffee makers and had leftover filters. So here is my Christmas wreath for 2012.

If you don't have the time to make your own wreath or if you're not particularly crafty, you can find on Etsy, numerous examples of beautiful wreath or door ornaments made of recycled material. Below are a few of my favorite ones.

This very elegant wreath, found at TheSalvagedWhimsy  is made of old book pages and coffee filters.

 This very festive one is found at Regrooved and is made of the glossy pages of books or magazines. Very much like fireworks, particularly appropriate for New Years.

 This tiny one is made of recycled pieces of wool. So cute. You will find it at AliciaTod.

Made out of recycled road maps, this soft looking one can be found at Weird Little World.

This very romantic one is found at Perennial Parchment.

Hi, Anyes - I like your wreath best of all, and I'm glad you didn't need to tear a book apart to make it!

I also notice your new Airbnb spot, which makes interesting reading — I'm sure that it will grow your business and grow with great responses, too!

Thank you Mark. We are so pleased with our little B&B venture. The guests we've had so far are unbelievably sweet. And it helps with the repairs and up-keep.

Also love your wreath the best! I just bought one at Pier 1 and am regretting my decision. I should have checked etsy first!!
