Do you remember the ornament wreath I made last year?
Here it is in last week's Chicago Tribune, along with a few other beautiful, budget-friendly ideas for the holidays. (Click twice to enlarge.)
In fact, judging from my Google Alerts, there's more than a few of you out there stringing wire hangers with ornaments this season. So here it is: email
Jaithan (firstname.lastname@example.org) your inspired version, and we'll do a friendly little contest. Note: Wreaths must be done using a hanger, not a form. Readers will then vote which is their favorite, and I'll send her (or him!) something from our butler's pantry. Good luck, everyone! Now let's see those wreaths!
Thanks for sharing this!!! I love your work! Enjoyed your holiday show, you rocked it as always! I heart your bow ties!

It will be so fun to see everyone’s wreaths!
Yes, Eddie, you have started quite the trend! They are everywhere this year. I was on top of it last year, but actually am getting to use mine this year. Loved seeing you on HGTV with Kathy Lee, so fun!
Thank you for letting me know about the contest! I absolutely inspired by all that you do so it was so flattering to have a comment from you on my blog. Thank you!
Okay, I will take a photo over the weekend and send it off to you!
I cannot wait to see!
teehee – I’m one of the people who has it bookmarked and keeps checking back! It’s such a fantastic wreath! I just need to find ornaments to use.
I want yours. It’s perfect.
That is so awesome that it was featured in the Chicago Tribune!! I can’t wait to submit my entry!
Using items from the yard is so easy and right at your fingertips! I’ve even used milk weed spray painted gold in past years.
Great idea to have a contest! Thanks for the chance to enter!

Such a fun challange, maybe I can get my act together to play too- I love this wreath!
Are you going to do something creative with live poinsettias this year? I’d love to see how you would design with them in mind…..I’ve got 150,000 to sell and I thought you’d be able to inspire people on how to use them in their decor 🙂
YAY! I’m totally entering. Thanks for the comments, and the inspiration!
Thanks for the contest, I sent my entry last night! Take care,
Soo cool and congrats on the feature!
I just made mine the other day and I plan to do another nicer one abut I thought this craft was absolutely amazing and your wreath I just fell in love with
but here is the link to it
Hi Eddie. I’m so glad I found your blog. I love that wreath. What a great idea. I will have to make one. 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend.
A well deserved feature! I spit coffee all over my laptop after seeing your comment on my blog…thank you! You made my day. Love everything you do~
I’m shooting an email with my little wreath!
All Things Heart and HOme
Has the contest ended? I know some one who want to enter.
I knew it . . . I knew it! The design world is now really taking note of your wonderful talent, Eddie! It’s great to see your creations ~and You~ being showcased in so many different venues lately. What I’m ultimately hoping for, though, is that you finally get your own design show on HGTV or Fine Living. Gosh, what a great show THAT would be!
Hi Eddie and Jaithan – which wreath was the winner? Dying to know! Thanks so much for choosing me amongst the finalists – my friends were green with envy.
Season’s Greetings to you and yours!
