Wednesday, December 1, 2010

i've been wanting to make a wreath for the holidays for a few years now, but haven't ever found the time to get it at the top of my crafting list during xmas. this year, it's right up there. so i set out on a wild escapade across the blogoshpere in search of the perfect wreath to make for our humble abode. i quickly realized it was going to be way harder to choose than i thought and that i couldn't possible keep all of these to myself. so here's a fun roundup of some of my fave wreath tutorials for the holidays!

  1. The hubbs and I made wreaths this weekend. He has been doing it for 20+years and it was only my 4th year. Every year we compete to see who has the best wreath and every year he wins...by a long shot! It is so much fun though and annoying that he is so good at it!

    here is my favorite wreath tutorial: http://naturesheirloom.blogspot.com/2010/11/fall-pom-pom-wreaththe-tutorial.html

    Seriously, Im obsessed with it! Im going to finish working on them after Christmas. They will look AMAZING on my new orange doors.

  2. LOVE to those....I totally think I need to make the popcorn one!! My boys would LOVE it!

  3. Thank you so much for posting this! I didn't think I was a wreath person but after seeing these I'm headed out to the craft store to make a few! That put me right into the holiday spirit! You're the best!

  4. I am a little obsessed with yarn wreaths right now here are two links with pics of ones I have made this season already....



    Man oh man those you posted are divine. Need to stay away or hubs might that away my check card!!

    I'm loving all the wreathes. The above link is to the one I just made from our old wreath.

  6. I've wanted to try the ruffly felt wreath for a while. I did make a banner wreath for fall, now I need to make a new mini banner for Christmas. You can see the fall one here:
    Fall Banner Wreath

  7. great wreath round-up!! i'm really into felt right now, so here's one i LOVE:

  8. I think this year I will make a christmas ball wreath, and also grab a wreath form and wrap it with hot pink feather boas from the dollar store. Hot pink totally Works with my Benjamin Moore Elk walls, something I noticed totally by happy accident (Nicole picked some hot pink flowers one week when I let her pick flowers to bring home, I was kinda meh about it until I saw how gorg they looked with my walls) ... since even the dog is a girl, and I'm planning on decorating our bedroom in a neutral/masculine fashion, my hubby has OK'd using hot pink (in moderation) as an accent color (along with the generous portion of black and white that I serve up already.)

  9. I haven't had many Christmas decorations of my own since I've gotten married, but I'm starting to make a few here and there. I made a wreath just recently I'm really proud of...


  10. I love all the creative things people are doing with wreaths. Those are all beautiful!

    I'm a sucker for a classic, fresh evergreen wreath and I posted a tutorial for it:


    Thanks for showing those wreaths, I think I will make the popcorn wreath with hot glue since I have issues with stringing popcorn.

  11. I just got mine up today!


  12. http://meandmy2guys.blogspot.com/2010/11/sewing-circle-scrappy-wreath-tutorial.html

    scrappy wreath using all your scraps from projects throughout the year - great for kids to do too!

  13. @Lesley Mackenzie saw the popcorn one and flipped out - she's super excited to try it out.

  14. Being a knitter and a crocheter, I'm lovin' the yarn ball wreath! Thanks for posting!

  15. Wow, these are gorgeous! I love the variety, from simple and elegant to whimsical and funky. Very inspiring!

  16. Taylor - Good to hear! I'm not a wreath person either. Not into frou frou at xmas, so when I saw all of these I jumped with glee!

    Amy - Thanks for the links! I'm always scared the hubs will take the card away due to my crafting addiction!

    Lotts to do - Can't seem to see a pic in your post? Is it just me?

    Joolee - Love that one too! So fun! A serious contender on my list now.

  17. @Anonymous This was the first one I had spotted and just swooned. I love the ability to bring more yarn into the holiday decor.

  18. i love this roundup! some of those wreaths are already on my to-do list. i love the felt ball one. i have a little mini how-to wreath on my blog.

  19. oops here is the link!

  20. How to choose just one??!! My home is definitely in need of a wreath. I usually prefer ones made with live greenery, but I think a some sort of fabric one would go very nicely in the craft room.
