I’m not usually a wreath person. Something about laziness combined with that fact that they all look alike (tres tradish) might have something to do with that. Or maybe it has something to do with my Dad, who in the spirit of American entrepreneurship one bitterly cold year, made us help him forage for pine cones until our fingers almost fell off so that he could sell his creations — God bless America and God bless Dad, the original DIY guy. So when a friend recently asked where she could find stylish holiday wreaths, three horrible words came tumbling out: I don’t know. I smelled a challenge. And got to clicking. Dear readers, I present to you modern DIY wreath ideas from my home to yours, starting with this Kelly Wearstler-designed wreath for for Children’s Action Network. Color me happy.
Kelly Wearstler also designed this chic, leather dip-dyed wreath for DIFFA. Think outside of the pine cones, my friends.
I nearly broke my jaw when I spotted this clever and cool Polaroid wreath on decor8. It’s just one of many DIY wreath ideas by the team over at Country Living magazine. And one I could see actually doing, as you could leave it up for months.
This crafty poinsetta felt wreath is a bit more involved and I love the bright happy vibe.
Of course, this edible wreath really takes the cake. Made of herbs like sage, oregano, rosemary and bay leaves, it makes a perfect prezzie for foodies and, no doubt, smells great. Do you have any wreath ideas to share with us? Please comment below!
