{DIY} Holiday Wreaths

December 13, 2010

A wreath can say so much, especially around the holidays. A wreath on your front door can be the first greeting that welcomes your friends and family into your home and really says so much about you. But why stop there? When it comes to decorating around the holidays in my house (Amy) I like to dress up a chandelier and many of the windows in my home with wreaths.

You can find a wreath in just about every style these days. And making them can be just as savvy when it comes to being creative with your materials. Here are a few DIY ideas that we found to help inspire even the least savviest person!!! Many of these ideas are made from materials you may have around your home.

Of course Martha Stewart comes to mind when looking for the craftiest, stylish, and savviest inspirational wreaths. Here, Martha has simply glued plain white boxes on top of each other and added some pretty ribbon. The great thing about this one is you can add the ribbon color of your choice to compliment your own decor.

How great is this gingerbread man wreath?? So sweet and so simple! Gingerbread cookies, hot glue and some ribbon and viola a creative twist to the traditional favorite.
Love this idea too! A wreath that is multi-functional. One that is stylish and fills your home with the sweet smell of cinnamon.

Since we are always looking for ways to keep the kiddos busy, here are couple of great ideas from Sweet Paul to do with your kiddos this season. Grab a bag of popcorn and a bowl or two of candy and create some fun memories that will hang in your home for years to come.

Here is a wreath I created in 10 minutes......

All you need is a paper plate with the center cut out

Some Peppermint candies hot glued to the plate

And some red ribbon to hang the Savvy Seasonal Creation.
