Homemade Christmas Wreaths | Easy DIY Ideas

How easy it is to create a unique, custom Christmas Wreath!  If you see your wreath as an extension of your Christmas tree and use ornaments that you have on hand to decorate your wreath, you can quickly and affordably create a special one-of-a-kind piece.

Children's Christmas holiday wreath with cute holiday stuffed toys

This children's wreath was created using little stuffed toys and candy shaped soaps as wreath decorations. Easy enough for little ones to make. 

Here are 6 more crafty ways to take a classic Holiday wreath from boring to popping in under $10 and under 10 minutes.

This year, I bought a fresh, balsam wreath for $7 to use as my decorating base. Using just a couple of select Christmas tree ornaments, raiding my wrapping paper drawer for left over gift ribbon and buying a couple of knick-knacks from the Dollar Store, I created 6 homespun versions of front door wreaths.... ranging from simple to sophisticated. And all for the grand price of under $10.

1. Candy Cane Christmas Wreath

What a difference a good looking bow makes! Replace the boring, flat, red plastic bow that usually accompanies a fresh wreath with a prettier decorative bow. For me, nothing says Christmas better than tartan. Adding a tartan $2 bow and a couple of candy canes is an easy up-do that even the most decoratively challenged can undertake without breaking a sweat... and definitely without breaking the bank.

2. A Touch of Gold Wreath

I love red and green for Christmas, but sometimes a break from red allows the spotlight to shine on more subdued elements. Burlap ribbon substitutes red ribbon. And using just a few ornaments in the same gold family and repeating them through the wreath creates a cohesive, pleasing arrangement. Pinecones rolled in gold paint add a touch of Midas.

3. Send a Message Wreath

Joy  Front Door Christmas Holiday wreath

A front door wreath is a great place to display a little message for all those who pass by. Passersby may never enter our home or even meet us, but a pretty wreath with a happy message is sure to put a smile on their face and a spring in their step as they walk by. It's that easy... to spread a little bit of joy.

4. Farmhouse Style Christmas Wreath

Natural, rustic, farmhouse style is all the rage. Plaid and burlap are basic elements for this style. Add in some woody pine cones and there you have a simple, original masculine wreath.

5. Bauble Ornament Christmas Wreath

Anyone can make this wreath! If there's one thing we all have in excess, it's an abundance of baubles for our Christmas tree. Hang a few baubles on the wreath, add a red bow and you're done!

6. Hearts for Heroes Christmas Wreath for First Responders, Health care and Essential Workers

Hearts for Heroes Christmas holiday wreath for first responders, essential workers, healthcare workers

This simple 'Hearts for Heroes' wreath is my favorite for this year. Earlier in the year, hearts became a symbol to show our first responders how much we care and appreciate everything they do for us. We're grateful for our front line workers, our doctors, nurses, EMTs, fire fighters, police officers, sanitation workers and even our postal workers... and this wreath is a small way to show our appreciation and let them know that they are not forgotten.
