Door wreaths are the perfect holiday décor items — not only do they bring a touch of cheer, but they act to welcome every single guest who walks through your door over the holiday season. There are plenty of gorgeous wreaths on the market to match any décor style, but you can save money and have some fun if you make your own. Wreaths are generally fairly simple to make and can easily be customized to suit your own tastes, here are a few ideas to get you started:
Natural garlands, pine greens, and poinsettia leaves make for a traditional Christmastime wreath. Leaves can be spray painted gold for extra holiday pizazz or left au naturel. Simply wire the foliage onto a wire wreath form or follow the instructions in this tutorial.
Making a pine cone wreaths is another idea for a natural wintery look. This tutorial shows how you can transform pine cones from your yard and an old wire hanger into a lovely door decoration.
There are plenty of cute holiday-themed wired ribbons available at craft stores. Tie them around a metal ring for a friendly door wreath, using this method.
Brightly coloured Christmas balls are inexpensive and easy to find. Simply glue gun them onto a foam wreath ring (as seen here) and you’ll have a fun and eye-catching wreath in no time.
Those foam wreath rings can also be easily transformed by wrapping them in strips of fabric. Use holiday-themed prints or follow this tutorial for a candy cane motif.
A pile of Styrofoam balls, a foam ring, and some fake snow can be made into a cute snowball wreath. Add some red ribbons for extra colour.
