Look! A Brussel Sprout Wreath

We always like seeing unconventional uses for everyday objects. This brussel sprout wreath is a great way to bring some green into the holidays without spending a lot and without resorting to the classic tree branch wreath. If you time it right, you could probably get a meal out of it too. We've been searching high and low for some different wreath ideas, want to see what we found?

Martha's Gumdrop Wreath

A succulent wreath isn't that surprising anymore, but it's still a great alternative, plus it lives on. Check out big red sun in LA and Austin this weekend for some tutorials to help make your own! (Or follow our How to make a living wreath post).

Forgo a wreath and go with an ecclectic jumble of ornaments instead.

Rolled up magazines might be the perfect material for this retro wreath that Jonathan at Happy Mundane is trying out.

If you have a bunch of zip ties around the house you can try your hand at this wreath from Readymade.

Use faux balls of yarn to create a crafty centerpiece (as inspired by *gasp* starbucks).

You might recognize this one from our alternative christmas color palette post, but the wreath couldn't go unmentioned. Using simple materials the wreath is modern and will last year after year!

A series of terrariums are another way to create a living wreath that will live past the holidays, though are probably better for inside a window rather than hanging on a door.

Have you come up with any great alternatives to the traditional holiday wreath?
