For your viewing pleasure, and as inspiration for uses for existing things, here’s a roundup of wreaths — spotted on various Web sites. The majority of these wreaths aren’t holiday-specific, so they could be enjoyed year-round. Several links below will take you to pages that feature additional photos and/or how-to details.

I love this!  My favorite is the wreath made of tiny succulents.  Beautiful.  I also like the one made of twigs and the recycled sweater wreath.  The one made of greeting cards is a clever way to hang on to and display the cards you receive without having to keep them on the fridge or mantle.
