LES COURONNES RECYCLAGE
I remember clearly when my children were asked to bring fabric and ribbon scraps and hangers to school and were sent home a few weeks later with charming hand made wreaths for the proud parents to display. We hung ours in front of the dining room and living windows- they happened to perfectly match the red and white striped curtains that hung there at the time- and they decorated our house for a few joyful years.
The child - and the "green" adult- in us, can continue the tradition with gusto as there are now any number of how-to sites online eager to help mold all kinds of recycled materials into extraordinary wreath.
