Using Vintage Items for Wreaths and Swags

Written by on October 11, 2012 in Holidays, home decor, Seasonal with 1 Comment

Well, it’s Autumn! Harvest, Halloween and straight through until Thanksgiving. This year, consider using vintage items to create wreaths and swags that can grace your door, foyer, guest bathroom, porch, or any other place you want to bring in the season in style. Repurposing, recycling or upcycling is so much fun with little vintage treasures.

We are due for a new wreath or swag celebrating the fall season this year. We don’t hang in on the door, rather on the stone in the front entry. We don’t really have a porch in the traditional sense. More of a entry area.

Anyway, I wanted to find something a bit out of the ordinary to make this year. So, I started perusing the internet to find my inspiration. I thought i’d share my finds and hope someone else gets inspired too!

I love all of these — the uniqueness of them. I think I could walk through the booths now and find several ideas for making a fall door decoration.

Are you making a new Fall/Autumn wreath or door decoration this year?
