The holidays are almost upon us and with the holidays come opportunities to create interesting and exciting decorations. These are the most intriguing and creative ideas for wreaths. Check them out and try one for yourself!
Candy Cane Holiday Wreath
Candy canes encapsulate Holiday Cheer. What better than to bring two of the holiday’s most prominent symbols together in one package. Take the joy that candy canes bring, and bind them together in a great big ring; or more precisely: a holiday wreath.
What you need: A foam circle, a hot glue gun, glue, mini candy canes
Option 1: Get a foam circle, get a hot glue gun, and glue on mini candy canes in a sort of collage. You can make any design you like but the shape of the canes limits you in a way. Don’t be afraid to break the canes to satisfy your creative streak!
Option 2: Get a square plane of cheese cloth the size you imagine your wreath to be. Next take your candy canes, and arrange them in a circle which looks pleasing to you. To secure the canes, poke holes in the cloth, and tie them on using a bread tie or a decorative ribbon. See the picture as a reference.
DIY Clothes Pin Wreath
Another impressive way to break out of the box with new decoration ideas is to look through household objects, and see how you can fit them together. A creative person saw opportunity in a box of clothes pins of all things! An additional benefit to this clothespins design is that you can display holiday cards from friends out in the open, hanging from your wreath.
What you need: Clothes pins (50-100 pack), wire hanger, red beads, paint, red ribbon.
Paint the clothes pins green or blue! Get a wire hanger, unravel it into a circle. Alternate putting clothespins on the wire with the red or silver beads. When you are finished and have filled up all the space, add a ribbon to pull the wreath together at the top. Tie the ribbon into a bow, and hang from your place of choice.
Now hang cards from the clothes pins!
What you need: Three sized wreaths. Our recommendation is 20 inch wreath, a 24 inch wreath, and a 30 inch wreath.
When you have them all together, tie the wreaths together with the smallest wreath on top, and the largest on the bottom. Now you have a series of wreaths in the shape of a snowman, ready to be decorated by children and adults alike.
