Castaway Christmas - Rings of Joy

I'm astounded by the creativity seen in recent years transforming the traditional Christmas wreath, and its fantastic.

These beautiful items bring a front door alive and give just a welcoming hint as to what's inside. They're easy to make and don't have to be all that expensive. I've seen wreath bases made from coat hangers, hoses, embroidery hoops, polystyrene etc. With hot glue gun in hand you can create all manner of wonderful creations.

Here's a few more ideas to inspire.

Love the palm, very islander.

This can work for both a coast or country look.

I've included this one, because the red looks stunning against the aqua.

The background to the wreath is just as important in the mix as the wreath itself.
Here the black glossy door really makes the wreath pop.
