Flickr Faves: Christmas wreaths

It's been a while since I've done a flickr faves post!  I've been thinking about making a different wreath this year for Christmas so I thought I'd turn to flickr for some inspiration.  Here's a few of my faves!

I thought this one was quite lovely.  You could display this one way past Christmas--I guess it's more of a winter wreath in that respect.  I love the colors and the little bottle brush trees made by Danielle F.



This one by marmaladeandcream is so over the top--I love it!
Yo-Yo wreath!  Yes Please!  I love this wreath by kmel.  The red yo-yo's look like mint candies!
I adore this scrappy fabric wreath by Flying Blind On A Rocket Cycle.  You could take this in so many directions, for many different holidays and seasons just by the fabric you choose.  The fabrics used here remind me of candy!  Just lovely.  There's another one here, here here and here!  Really fun.
I love this one made with vintage ornaments by georgiapeachez.  Again, kinda over the top but full of kitsch and I love it!  It reminds me of the ones I've been drooling over on Betty Crafter's blog!  She even has a great tutorial for how to make your own!
This one by Mrs. B  is super cute and again could go in so many directions depending on the colors you choose.  I really like the addition of the buttons and bells. 
The simplicity of this one by Kristie at OCD makes this wreath beautiful.  I like the thick, chubby, green yarn contrasting with the more delicate felt flowers.  Really pretty.
This lovely paper wreath by Marie the Bee is so pretty.  The use of decorative holiday papers with pages from a book is wonderful.  You could use pages from Christmas books like A Christmas Carol.  That would be a nice touch!
Linky Links--check out some others!  This super bright one!  This one made out of crayons! A gorgeous button wreath! This one is edible!  A little stitchy pattern!  If you've got a bunch of vintage Christmas light bulbs, you could make thisThis pup is super adorable.

 I'm still not quite sure what I'm going to do but I have found some great inspiration.  All of these wreaths are so beautiful, enough to get my brain churning with ideas!

No not quite yet!! I really like them all. I think I'm leaning towards the yarn wrapped one with the felt flowers, but I also love the one withe all the vintage ornaments. Ahh how to choose!
