Weekend Project: Creative Wreaths

Felt Ball Wreath DIY from Pickles

This weekend I'm planning on making a wreath for our front door, and as I've been thinking about ours (I'm hoping to use some found driftwood and wool); it seems this year I'm finding so much creative inspiration out there in the wreath department, I now have ideas aplenty!

Update: A Holiday Wreath Segment on House and Home TV!

WELL AREN'T YOU THE CREATIVE ONE!? I have my boring old greens wreath but I would like to fool around with that one made of pom poms. I'll bet it is pretty easy to make.

The 2nd picture is the most beautiful wreath that I have ever seen! Can you imagine having that??? Gorgeous!!

I was almost forgetting... Talking about "gorgeous", Heidi Klum and Seal just bought a new house in La. You need to take a look. I think you'd love the Italian rose gardens.
