DIY Holiday Wreaths

My goal for getting holiday decorations up is usually the first weekend in December. So, with that in mind, there is still time to make a nice wreath. Here are just a few of my favorites that go beyond the usual greenery and pinecones.

These two wreaths both use yarn that gives them each a warm and cozy feel. The wreath at left from Life as a Pepin combines yarn balls and ornaments. A perfect complement to the Christmas tree, this would look great above a mantle. If you want to save a little money, wrap yarn around $1 store ornaments instead of buying the styrofoam balls. Click here for the complete how-to. The wreath at right serves as great inspiration because the yarn lets you come up with so many variations of colors and patterns. Use red and white to create a peppermint pattern. Embellishments like white doves would also be really pretty. Photo source here.

I just want to squish these two wreaths! I love the lushness of each one! The one at left is made with red fleece. Find directions here. The one on the right is made with cupcake liners. This wreath, originally made for Valentine's Day by Tatertots and Jello, can certainly be used for Christmas. Just add a green "flower" if you want to use traditional colors. Get the how-to here.

Looking for something more unique with a lot of color?? These will do it for you! I love the mix of patterns and whimsy feel of the first wreath from Piccadilly Peddlers here. I am in awe of the one on the right. You can certainly use this beyond the holidays to welcome spring. Almost too pretty to put away! Find the directions here at Fancy Pants Designs.

But, if you're looking for a wreath that's quick and easy to make, yet still gives you pretty results, one of these should do the trick. The one at left from Creature Comforts here is basically made from just wrapping a tinsel garland around a styrofoam wreath. The one at right was made from tying ribbon around a metal hoop. From Sunset, see the directions here. You can also achieve this same effect by pinning ribbon loops into a styrofoam wreath.
