Christmas decorating wouldn’t be complete without adding a gorgeous wreath – or two or three! I’ve put together a list of fantastic and frugal ideas for creating your own Christmas wreaths.

Visit the links below to discover a plethora of ideas and DIY tutorials for Christmas wreaths to make and decorate.

  • This beautiful wooden beaded wreath by The Silly Pearl was originally created in celebration of summer, but a simple color change could easily make this wreath fit for any season.

  • Funky Junk Interiors is always coming up with fabulous reuse ideas, and this canning jar lid wreath is no exception. (Scroll down for the easy DIY.) If you like this look, also check out this metal wreath tutorial from Besserina.

  • Never underestimate the big boys! Lowe's has come up with a ton of DIY wreath ideas in a variety of styles, from country to modern. If you love their PVC wreath, check out this simple wreath or this more sophisticated one. (Tip: Use blue glue, aka PVC adhesive, to hold it all together.)

  • Another great reuse idea, this wreath crafted from old shipping pallets was featured on re-nest.com. It doesn't come with a tutorial, but a bit of scrap lumber, small nails and wood glue should work just fine.

  • If you like an industrial look, this steel wreath from studio724 doesn't come cheap, but DIY your own similar design with this tutorial from Lowe's.
