Homemade wreath are a fun way to decorate any door or wall of the home, and normally the materials are very inexpensive. As I already mentioned here at the blog, crochet offers many opportunities for holiday wreaths. Even without crochet, you can use yarn to wrap wreaths. Whether yarn, paper or spare buttons, your favorite materials can likely be turned into a wreath. Here are my top five favorite ideas right now:
Easy Paper Wreath– This wreath is a great craft project to do with kids.
Birdseed Wreath– A natural wreath pays tribute to our feathered friends.
Save your Buttons– Display all your favorite spare buttons on a wreath. Why not hang above your sewing table?
Paper Pinwheel Wreath– Turn pretty paper pinwheels into a colorful wreath, perfect for a child’s room.
Sea Glass Wreath– Collect sea glass (or mixture of seaglass and seashells) for a wreath to remember your trip to the beach.
All these projects use foam wreath bases, but keep in mind you can you can also use a cardboard circle, salvaged from a large box perhaps. With a 14-inch diameter circle wreath, you would want to cut a 12-inch diameter circle out of the middle. You can also use a wire hanger bent into the shape of a circle for your wreath base.
