DIY Christmas Wreaths

yarn wreath

It is hard to beat the unique character of handmade Christmas wreaths. It is fun to see how people are still able to reinvent a Holiday decoration that have been around for ages. Have a look at three DIY wreaths that are beautifully rustic.

First, here an cosy idea from The Farm Chicks‘ Serena Thompson. It is one of the projects from her Christmas book, The Farm Chicks Christmas. This is a simple project that you can make a Saturday afternoon with your kids. And it might be a way for you to use leftover yarns.

Renate created a beautiful laurel leaf wreaths out of overdyed newspapers for the Rit blog. Visitors could read partial news or ads while they are waiting at the door.

Finally, have a look at the stylish silver and cream flowery wreath that I saw at Style at Home.

  1. Pretty ideas! I always think “I should really make a wreath,” but somehow I’ve never gotten around to it. Maybe this year!

  3. I love Serena’s wreath – it looks vintage but current – and really pretty.
    We went to the Farm Chicks show this year – it was incredible – so much amazing vintage stuff!
