Creative Office Wreaths

So, as you saw with our Halloween Costumes, the Ben Franklin Crafts Honolulu Office has some pretty creative people. And they LOVE to CRAFT!

So, we divided up into teams by department and four people each. The result is 5 Super Fun wreaths!  Every team started with a 12" extruded foam wreath that they had to use. Here's what the teams came up with...

 I call this the Blue wreath, made of curled strips of blue cardstock  in different shades. Good idea if you want something to perfectly match your color scheme!

This one I call the Sweet wreath. It uses Deco Mesh ribbon and is decorated with sweets.

See the center heart candies! So Cute!

This next one, I call the Donut Door wreath. They mounted their wreath on a hand made door with a fancy door handle.

The donut's star and sprinkles were made with Perler beads. And the donut twinkles from a flashing lightbulb necklace.

Next is the Grinch wreath. In this case, a scarecrow was reborn into the Grinch with a very good hand-drawn and painted face! What talent!

The Grinch holds a Dream Catcher wreath covered with some of their team's favorite things that represents them.

The last wreath I call the Slippah wreath. It has four pairs of handmade slippahs made of foamies. Each slippah is supposed to represent the person who made it.

A hand stamped and blinged slippah.

An eco-friendly design decoupaged slippah.

A barefoot happy slippah.

A colorful watercolor slippah.

Now, these wreaths were made for a contest and the winners will be chosen on Thursday by a panel of judges. It doesn't matter which team wins, everyone had a lot of FUN working together to make their wreath.

Can you guess which wreath was made by which department team? There are two teams from Accounting, one from Advertising, one from Human Resources and one from IT.

Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Holidays from me and my co-workers!


  1. wow! awesome wreaths! they are all so creative!

  2. I'm guessing the Blue & Sweet wreaths were done by accounting. The Grinch done by advertising. The Slippah wreath done by human resources and the Donut Door one by IT. Seems like the correct mentality for each department. LOL

  3. I have no guesses but I am surprised by the creativity of everyone in the office. Amazing!

  4. So much fun and sooo creative!

  5. So fun what people can come up with--very creative! Good luck picking a winner! Happy Holidays to you Joy!!!
