A Calendar of Upcycled Wreaths

A Calendar of Upcycled Wreaths

Changing out the wreath on the front door as seasons change and holidays come and go is a fun and crafty way to mark time. And while traditional wreaths are lovely in their own right, door decor can be as quirky and clever as you like. If upcycled wreaths are more your style, then perhaps this collection will inspire you in the months to come.

Winter Wreath

Your front door works hard all winter long, keeping the cold air out and the cozy warmth in. So you might as well decorate it with a winter wreath. And this one couldn’t be easier since it started out as a plain green Christmas wreath first.

Upcycled Wreaths with Candy Boxes

Nothing these days quite compares to the heart-shaped chocolate boxes of Valentine’s Days gone by. And if you can get your hands on one of the vintage boxes that is still in good shape, it only takes about five minutes to transform it into Cupid-approved door decor.

Kiss Me, I’m a St. Patrick’s Day Wreath

St. Patrick’s Day may not be a holiday significant enough for a wreath. But if you change your mind, perhaps this one will get your creative juices flowing. It started out as a plain faux boxwood wreath from a thrift store- but it’s the rainbow bow that steals the show.

Spring in Bloom

A straw tote bag might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of door decor, but it works like a charm. Filled with silk flowers, it’s the perfect non-holiday wreath to mark the arrival of Spring.

Upcycled Wreaths for Easter

A flat-backed hanging basket like this is simply perfect for transforming into an Easter basket “wreath”, isn’t it? And it’s ready to be filled with decorative eggs, bunnies, and Easter grass, too.

Warm Weather Welcome

What says summer (or even Cinco de Mayo) more than a tropical drink that comes with a little umbrella? And you can get that festive feeling without the alcohol by turning those little parasols into a bright and cheery summer wreath, perfect for your front door.

Patriotic Necktie Wreath

Whether you have a closet full of unworn ties or pick up a few at the thrift store, they are a great source of crafty inspiration. Take this patriotic wreath, for example. Isn’t this a great way to repurpose them AND celebrate July 4th with a fantastic wreath?

Starburst Driftwood Wreath

It’s the dead of summer and all you can think about is an ocean breeze at a seaside oasis. But if a daydream is all you can muster, then perhaps a beachy starburst wreath made from driftwood will just have to suffice. It looks pretty awesome on just about any door, too.

Fall is Coming!

When you simply can’t wait for Fall to arrive, you might as well make some upcycled wreaths to coax it along. This one combines a cheese box lid, some faux wood-burning stenciling, and a ring of colorful foliage to welcome autumn.

Upcycled Wreaths from Picture Frames

A picture frame might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to wreath making, but it works out really well. Plus they’re super plentiful (and cheap!) at thrift stores and easy to personalize to your own preferred style.

Jack-o-Lantern Door Hanger

There’s always a pause in fall decorating to usher in a little Halloween. And this wicker-charger-turned-jack-o-lantern door decor project couldn’t be easier! Plus, if Halloween isn’t something you celebrate, you can always leave off the face and have a delightful pumpkin for your front door instead.

End of Autumn Harvest

Never one to rush through November, I love a little nod to all things harvest (without actually hunting, of course!). And this old leather quiver filled with wooden arrows and faux foliage is such a wonderfully unique way to count down the days to Thanksgiving.

Upcycled Wreaths for Thanksgiving

This upcycled Thanksgiving wreath makes such an elegant statement, doesn’t it? It’s almost hard to believe that the woven mat and brass turkey were thrift store finds on the same shelf- but they came together delightfully for a Thanksgiving wreath.

Hello, December!

December is here and it’s time to think all things snow, which just so happens to include sleds and skates. This upcycled door decor pairs up a decorate wooden sled from a thrift store with some vintage baby shoes that were repurposed as ice skates. Aren’t they the cutest skates ever now?

Upcycled Wreaths for Christmas

He’s making a list…and checking it twice…gonna find out who’s making a wreath! How playful is this retro wreath that started as a vintage Santa tray from the thrift store?

Cozy Flannel Wreath

As the year comes to a close once again, we start leaning into all the cozy decor. This upcycled wreath is made from flannel shirts and has a Christmas-y feel. But with a slight color change in the shirts, it could definitely tilt in a more winter-cozy-Hygge direction, as well.

Upcycled Wreaths All Year Long

Isn’t it fun to think of the calendar year in terms of wreaths? Changing them out throughout the year gives us something to look forward to no matter what month or season it is. And I hope you find some thrifty inspiration for your own front door with these upcycled wreaths and project ideas.
