Pinecones, an old gear, chain, rusty tools...The result: A post-holiday wreath for the front door.

Thanks to inspiration from JUNKMARKET Style, I'm totally into creating wreaths using my beloved old rusty tools. For a post-holiday wreath, I turned to pieces I already hat collected -- including a grapevine wreath from Goodwill, an old green gear I picked up for $2 at a flea market, rusty old tools, pine cones and a decorative angel. Now I just have to be inspired for another junk wreath for spring!
