We were thrilled to see how the decorated wreaths reflected each blogger’s signature style and personality. Here’s a quick look at all their wonderful designs.

Donating them to charity is always a great option, but turning them into something better is a worthwhile task that can also be a lot of fun. Here are some easy ways to put your unwanted gifts to good use.
