Zhuzh up your front door with a DIY wreath this holiday season. Before you sigh and start thinking about all the money that you’ll spend at your local craft store, take a look around your home. Most, if not all of the supplies you need are in your house or yard.
Take a look at these creative DIY wreath ideas and see if any spark your creativity.
This wreath is a favorite with us because it’s so simple and it smells great. If you put up a real tree for the holidays you can use some of the cutoffs to make your wreath, or if you have a pine tree in your backyard, snip some branches and add it to your wreath.
Pro Tip: glue pine cones and dehydrated limes or lemons for added citrus scents and pops of color.
Tissue Paper Wreath
If you are like many savvy DIYers, and you save not only gift bags but also bows and tissue paper from any gift you or your family receives, know that you are seen, friend. I understand your desire to be thrifty and I appreciate you. To show our appreciation we found a DIY wreath that puts that extra tissue paper to good use.
Wrapping Paper Wreath
Speaking of… have extra wrapping paper? Maybe it’s that pretty but annoying glittery wrapping paper that the pets always seem to get their paws into. Turn it into a wreath! Bonus: this is a great activity that you and your kids can do together.

Pro Tip: Get family and friends in on saving corks so you can accumulate supplies faster.
Pro Tip #2: Don’t drink and craft — it’s a pour decision and you’ll regret it.
If you simply must go shopping for craft supplies (no judgment here, that desire to flit among the aisles at Hobby Lobby is strong), then try out this DIY ornament wreath. This one is cool because you’re shown multiple ways to style a wreath.
Pro Tip: If you have extra ornaments that don’t fit on your tree you can incorporate them into this wreath. That makes the wreath more personal and it put those extra ornaments to good use.
