Take a Bow
"These little bows are such simple reminders of [childhood memories], it seemed a good idea to put them front and center on my porch to celebrate the holidays," says Allison Murray of Mom Spark.
"Store-bought wreaths can be beautiful, but they are often costly. They also tend to be impersonal," Allison says. "Using your own memories and imagination, you can create [a wreath] that really means something to you and your family. And isn't that what the holidays are all about?"
Make a Scene
Inspired by vintage finds, this fabric-covered wreath is adorned with a forest of bottlebrush trees and a group of mini ice skaters. Simply wrap and glue fabric around a wreath form; then create a magical winter wonderland with your own fabulous finds.
Occasion for Ombre
"My favorite design element of this wreath was using numerous miniature wreaths to create one larger wreath," says Amy Weir of Delineate Your Dwelling. "They also aided in the overall ombre effect."
"I love making a DIY wreath instead of a store-bought one because you can completely make it your own. You can use your favorite colors, materials and even design the wreath to perfectly fit into your home," she says.
Mossy & Merry
Covered with moss and strewn with strands of cranberries, this cheerful wreath by Marian Parsons is a fresh approach to holiday greenery. We love that it's equally at home hung on a door or mantel as it is laid flat as a fresh and festive centerpiece.
A Cozy Circle
Designer Brian Patrick Flynn wows with this colorful and cute creation. Perfect for wintertime decor, this wreath is covered in yarn balls of all sizes to add depth and tons of texture to the scene. While Brian selected shades of purple and ivory for this DIY, you can choose your favorite color palette or stick to more traditional holiday hues.
Try a cool, architectural approach to your winter wreath with a repurposed ceiling medallion. This decorative piece, complete with leaf-like designs, gets festive with a coat of paint and a candy-colored ribbon. Make yours even more personalized by using different paint colors to highlight the sculptural details of the wreath, and finish with ribbon or fabric for hanging.
Bird's the Word
This clever little twig wreath serves a trio of purposes when hung from a tree. It's a festive and fun yard decoration, the tinkling bells act as wind chimes, and it's a sweet place for neighborhood birds to perch. To create your own, simply deck out a basic twig wreath with jingle bells and a feathered friend from the craft store.
"My inspiration for this design was a snowy white winter scene, [so I used] fluffy pom-pom snowballs on a cozy winter backdrop of flannel and chunky white yarn," says Amy Dowling of My Life From Home.
"I love making my own wreaths, not only for the hands-on experience of seeing something you create come to life, but it allows you to tailor the elements specific to your style and home. It saves money, and the design possibilities are endless!"
Looking for a rustic, minimalist design to suit your wintertime decor? This simple wire star wreath is detailed with eucalyptus branches, ribbon and a wooden ornament for an understated, farmhouse feel that's totally in the spirit of the season.
Create a merry mobile by hanging a greenery wreath to a ceiling hook with rope. Add colorful berries atop the wreath and string ornaments below for a lovely layered look that's sure to be a showstopper all season long.
A trio of wreaths — small, medium and large — are attached to create the familiar outline of a snowy friend. This adorable DIY can be created with any number of circular shapes. Twigs, pine needles, vines or wire all work well. Get creative with paint, accessories like a hat or scarf, ribbons, ornaments and more.
"I love using items in new ways. I was drawn to this scarf and the cool winter colors, but knowing I never actually wear scarves, I had to find a new way to use it," says Jenny Leadaman of Refresh Living.
"This wreath was so easy and inexpensive to make," Jenny says. "It's very possible that you already have around your house everything you would need to make it. When you get creative and DIY, it can save you a ton of money."
Deck the Chairs
Holiday decor gets a seat at the table with this darling burlap design. A foam wreath form is wrapped in strips of burlap and finished with fragrant seasonal details: cinnamon sticks and dried citrus slices. The finished wreath is hung with coordinating ribbon. The result is a decidedly down-home design that's as inviting as it is festive.
Unfinished wooden beads are hot glued around an embroidery hoop to create this understated, yet truly elegant, winter wreath. Finished off with holly leaves and berries, this stylishly-downplayed design makes a gorgeous statement in any space.
The White Stuff
Get a little glam with this boa-wrapped wreath complete with fun travel souvenirs. The fluffy white feathers recall snowy winter days, while the miniature city sights bring to mind a favorite destination. This design features a NYC theme, but with your choice of figurines, it can be made to celebrate any memorable location.
To the Letter
Put your personal stamp on traditional holiday decor with this clever initial wreath, crafted with a cardboard letter form and tree cuttings. Wrap branches around the letter form, securing with hot glue or floral wire as you go. Hang with the ribbon of your choice.
Peace on Earth
"Pinecones have been one of my favorite things to decorate with for winter. I think they look so pretty covered in snow. It gives you that winter wonderland feeling," says Kim Purvis of Made in a Day.
"I get my inspiration from lots of things," Kim says. "Sometimes I go shopping or to craft stores and see what's trending. Then I put my own twist on it. Handcrafted wreaths show your own personal style and flair. Even if you buy a wreath, you can add to it to make it more customized to your decor."
From the Heart
Step away from the expected circular wreath with this darling creation. This DIY project starts with a simple wire hanger that's formed into a heart shape. Greenery is attached with floral wire, and a bevy of berries are scattered throughout to add a bit of texture, color and seasonal style. Add ornaments, ribbons or other accessories to personalize your design.
Start off with a simple cardboard letter form. Carefully wrap and hot glue twine to cover the entire letter. Attach ribbon and ornamentation of your choice. Here, satiny black ribbon and a trio of felt flowers creates an elegant look that'll be a beautiful display piece all winter long.
We love the distinctly Scandinavian feel and simple, homemade styling of this framed evergreen wreath. Loosely wrapped greenery is hung on a thin red ribbon from an antique frame for a casual, minimalistic effect.
