Yesterday we spent our very unseasonably warm day up at the Chicago Botanical Garden in Glencoe. They still have their wreath display up and I took pictures of the ones I found quite unique. Some of these could be used for spring or anytime of the year. They were really beautiful and creative. i hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Here are 3 more. The last one is empty seed packages.

I agree Sara. I think that is the only one I would be able to make.

They had more wreaths up, but these were my favorites. I wish that I had the talent to make them. The pastel pinecone may be doable for me though. I thought that would be pretty for March and April.

Interesting what people create. I hope you tackle making one Dawn. You will enjoy it. On pinterest they have instructions for making bleached pine cones. Have fun.

Thanks Diana! Each wreath was done by different groups at the Chicago Botanical Garden. They were all really beautiful and creative.

These are amazing! My favorite is the white and green peace wreath. I wish I could make wreaths like this. My mom and I have plans to make a winter wreath and it's been on our UFO list for 2 years now. We have all the stuff we just need to do it. Dawn I would love to see your wreath once you finish it.

Krista, I love the Peace wreath too, but it is beyond my very limited abilities. I need to run to the craft store for supplies, but hope to get my wreath done before spring. I'll post a picture of it when it is done, even if it doesn't come out!
