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.
This very romantic one is found at Perennial Parchment.
