I decided to use them as a "ribbon" for the front door wreath. I just turned the strips in to loops (instead of circles this time!) and then used the long strips as long, flat ribbon.
Loving the vintage, woodsy feel, with red berries, pine cones, and a sweet little "bottlebrush" bird.
The best part of my wreath? At night, with the light of the house shining through the glass door, it fairly glows!
