If, like me, you are tired of the same-old, same-old in Christmas decorations, use this collection of unique, easy-to-make wreaths to liven up your home for the holidays.
If you’ve been saving a collection of wine bottle corks, here is the perfect project for you. What I love most about this unique wreath is that is can serve year round if you change the Christmasy bits.

Felt Ball Wreath
A felted ball wreath is a refreshing change from the usual wreaths we see everywhere. You can make felted balls yourself from wool or buy them and sew or glue them onto a wreath form.
Who knew that peppermint candy (plus Red Hots) glued onto a wreath form could create such a lovely wreath? I find it quite striking and looks like fun to make.

Ornament and Wire Hanger Wreath
One of my favorites, this wreath is inexpensive and quick to make. It’s also fun for the kids to help. Bend a wire hanger into a circle, untwist the top, string with lots of cheap ornaments (glue tops on if necessary), and finish with a bow.

Yarn Ball Wreath
This yarn ball wreath looks great – homey and festive. I think using different shades of green adds a lot of interest.

Fabric Candy Cane Wreath
Use folded squares of stiff fabric (such as canvas) and pin on a wreath form. Add a ribbon and you have a lovely and unique wreath.
Cinnamon Stick Wreath
I love the unique and simple design of this wreath. Glue cinnamon sticks onto a flat wreath form and finish with a ribbon. I would probably glue one more layer of sticks offset on top of the first layer.

Paper Star Wreath
My origami-loving kids and I will definitely be making this one soon. Folded paper stars are glued onto a wire wreath form. Gorgeous and so unique.

Wood Slice Wreath
One of the most unique Christmas wreaths — my very favorite — is this stunning one made from a wood slice from a tree. Of course you need a big, old tree and someone who can cut you a slice with a chainsaw, so this isn’t as easy as the other wreaths in this post. Boy, is it worth it though! In this case the author used a tree that had been blown down by Hurricane Sandy, making it a literal slice of history. What a gorgeous result.
