Photos: Check out a wreath made from liquor bottles at Deck the Doors
The display of off-the-wall wreaths felt endless: Another wreath was made from black bowler hats.
DALLAS As you decked your halls this year, DIFFA Dallas offered a twist on the generic Christmas decorations. At Thursday night's Deck the Doors fundraiser at Timothy Oulton in Dallas, DIFFA (which stands for Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) auctioned hand-made wreaths of an artistic variety. Forget simple garland and ribbon: These wreaths, some marked as high as $1,000, were adorned with picture frames, feathers, and even teeny liquor bottles.
DIFFA hosts Deck the Doors to raise money for organizations that fight HIV and AIDS, and they report that $39,000 was raised from the event. Take a look at the colorful wreaths sold at this year's event:
