To get you in the holiday crafting spirit, here are five of my favorite DIY Christmas wreaths. Happy crafting!
A different take on the traditional Christmas wreath, Dana from Make Them Wonder used an old frame and hot glue gun to make this pine cone masterpiece. This wreath can be used indoors or outdoors and would make a wonderful addition to your holiday mantel.
Follow Laurie from Passionate Penny Pincher‘s lead and pick up a few items from the dollar bin at your local craft store to spruce up a basic grapevine wreath. This wreath can be changed with each season or holiday so it’s always fresh and new.
All you need is a wire coat hanger, some duct tape, and 100 mini jingle bells to make this adorable wreath from designer Paul Lowe. Consider adding a fresh sprig of holly and your favorite ornament to give your wreath some extra pizazz.
The versatility of the book page wreath knows no bounds. Use decoupage to cover a basic wreath form in book pages or sheet music and then add your own embellishments such as a fancy bow, tinsel, or garland.
Not only is this clothespin wreath affordable and easy to make, it also serves a dual function as a Christmas card holder. Thanks to Jess from Craftiness is Not Optional for this great idea!
