Creating a festive wreath is a simple and

affordable way to spruce up your home for the holidays. It is also an easy craft young and old can enjoy.

Wreaths are a timeless decoration and as versatile as your imagination. There are no rules. Anything you love can be incorporated into this special decoration. Below are a few of our favorite ideas.

  • Bake a wreath of braided bread and decorate with dried and candied fruits and nuts.
  • A Traditional pine bough wreath can be made from the trimmed Christmas tree branches with pine cone and ribbon accents.
  • Straw ring wreaths decorated with silk autumn leaves and miniature pumpkins make a great Thanksgiving centerpiece with a large candle inside.
  • Braided cloth wreaths adorned with Christmas Tree ornaments of any kind have endless possibilities.
  • Small wispy wreaths of berry branches add a homey touch to holiday tables as napkin rings or around the base of each beverage glass.
