22 Holiday Wreaths You Can DIY!

It should be said that I actually do not have any wreaths. In fact, until recently, I was not a wreath person at all. Finally, I am starting to see what all the hub-bub is about especially after seeing the fabulous wreaths below and the Fall wreaths I posted last month! I still think that 13 year old Laura would look at 31 year old Laura and say, "Wreaths... really! What happened?"

I'm not in love with the idea of spending much money or time on things that only come out once a year and having to store it the rest of the year. However, I did just find out you can get foam wreaths at the dollar store. And these wreaths below are pretty awesome... 2012 just might be the year I start flying my wreath flag!



Throw your old ornaments on a wreath and call it a day... or look through 21 more wreath photos and get to DIYing.
 
This one may be a little country but I couldn't resist the big, floppy chartreuse bow.
 
Grab yourself some felt and get to work!
 
I love this funky, vintage-looking wreath! It would be a cool decoration for a wedding around the holidays!

Adorable! Glue a bunch of colorful felt balls onto a wreath and look what you get!
 
 
I call this one, "White Spraypaint Meets Nature."
 
Has your leftover holiday candy from last year gone stale? Make a wreath, duh!
 
A simple one!!
 
Let's throw a lil burlap into the mix, shall we?
 
Lots of leftover stale candy? Then go wild!
 
There is a strong possibility that it would take you the rest of your life to wrap this much yarn around a wreath. But who is to say it wouldn't be worth it?
 
Start saving your newspaper!
 
The Tea Bag Wreath! Let your groceries work for you.
 
I did not know it was possible to make paper chains look somewhat classy.
 
This is about as traditional as my taste goes.
 
Colorful ornaments on wreaths seems to be the thing to do!
 
Treat yo' self to a pink ornament overload wreath!
 
Fabric scraps can beautify your wreath!
 
PVC pipe wreath = craziness!
 
Hey hey now! Another simple one!
 
And one more fabric scrapped wreath for you!
 
You know you have some extra art supplies just sitting around hoping to get turned into a wreath!
 
 
 
After looking at all of those are you headed out the door to buy your dollar wreath?
Are you heating up your glue gun?
 
Wreaths are starting to move up to BFF status with me.
