  1. On the yarn ball wreath you could also use different size foam balls or make paper balls and wrap just enough yarn to cover the balls good! That way you can enjoy the wreath and yarn at the same time!

  2. Aw I just threw away almost an entire bag of stale marshmallows left over from our last long weekend… I totally would have made that wreath! It’s so fun!!

  3. I remember seeing stuff made out of marshmallows like that as a kid – I’d totally make a wreath out of that if i had enough patience πŸ™‚

  4. OH man, these are all gorgeous! I am a huge fan of the book pages wreath. But I would have to find very old books at a yard sale because I would hate to rip up my own books!

  5. These are really unique and inventive. Based on this post it seems like as long as you can ultimately shape something into a circle you can make a wreath out of it! Being a foodie, I have to say the marshmallow one is my favorite – I would get to eat some as I made it!

  6. Loving the book pages wreath so much! Such a great vintage touch, and could do a holiday story as an added bonus… Thanks for sharing – terrific holiday inspo!
