There are so many quick and easy DIY Christmas wreaths out there in Blogland and over the years, I have shared a few DIY wreath projects myself.  Of course, wreaths are great for the front door but it’s amazing all the things that you can do around the home with a wreath- like hanging on a mirror, on the front of a bookshelf, or just hung on a wall.

Today,  I wanted to pull together a few of these fun and festive projects from other bloggers and myself, to really show you all of the creative possibilities.

 

Swag or Gathered Wreaths

I just made this quick pine swag wreath in under 30 minutes for my front door, by using a artificial pine swag I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  I simply wired in a couple ornaments, a extra large sugar pine cone (I’m obsessed with these!!) and berry stems. I pulled it all together with a silk ribbon:

My friend Kris from Driven by Decor made this stunning fresh swag wreath last year that is one of my favorites in all of Blogland. Look at how easy this is, Kris just tied in some bells, fresh greenery and ribbon.

Here is another very easy way from BHG to create a swag for the door or anywhere around the house.  By simply gathering either fresh or artificial greenery, branches and berries and tie it all together with a ribbon.  Wire a few colorful Christmas balls in the center for a pop of color and hang either upright or downward:

If you want to add ribbon and ornaments to a pre-made swag wreath, I found these two pretty swags on Amazon that would be a great swag foundation:

Around the Home
Adding fresh boxwood, or any kind of greenery around wire (like a close hanger) or an embroidery hoop is a quick way to make a very simple and elegant wreath:

I made a quick wreath with a wire clothes hanger yesterday for my bar area with extra artificial garland, berry sprigs and mini ornaments.  This is another quick way to make a wreath.

I just wrapped the pine branches tightly around the hanger and decorated it. You can do this with any type of garland, Christmas balls or sprigs.

Door Wreaths

If you’re looking for last minute traditional front door Christmas wreaths, a store-bought grapevine or branch bundle wreath is quick and easy. You can wire in fresh or artificial greenery and fruit for a simple and elegant wreath.

It’s not too late to order a fresh wreath and right now, many of them are already on sale on Amazon here.  A couple years ago, I ordered a fresh wreath and just added some ribbon to it to add more color:

Another quick wreath idea is start with an artificial pine wreath and use floral wire to add ornaments and working in ribbon.  That’s what I did last year with this artificial wreath and I also added fresh berry branches from my yard:

If you want something different and natural, I shared a tutorial a couple years ago for this reindeer moss wreath that I just loved.
