I recently posted about how I recover pillows to fit each season. Another way I use what I have on hand through all the seasons is to redecorate these grapevine wreaths. I made them years ago and they have taken on many different looks and have been hung in several different parts of our home. My mother has grape vines, so I was able to get the vines from her. If you don't have access to grape vines, the ready made wreaths aren't too expensive, considering that you can use them over and over.
This one is hanging on one side of the mantel and book cases that run the entire length of one wall in our living room. I used floral/pine cone picks purchased at a local discount store that cost 2 for $1.00. The "wish" star thingie was found on clearance for $3.50. The neat thing is that I can pull these decorations off the wreath and store them until next year. Then after Christmas, probably as Spring approaches, I could redecorate the wreath with another look. Or I can just store it as it is to be used again and again.
Here's another larger one using larger floral pics and this twiggy primitive looking snowman, purchased at Dollar General. A little secret is that I used bread twist ties to hold him on securely. They are orange, blue, white and green, but they don't show on the front of the wreath. It hangs on the front door.
That snowman is almost a little scary, but I like him!
