Christmas wreaths don't have to be made from traditional evergreens -- in fact, we encourage you to mix it up with eucalyptus leaves, boxwood, lotus pods, and even items that don't come from nature, such as peppermint candies and pom-poms. These fun-to-make creative designs show you how to make Christmas wreaths with unexpected shapes, dazzling colors, and out-of-the-ordinary materials.
Craft a wreath from rolled scrapbook paper strips to make a forever holiday keepsake. To make, curl 1x6-inch strips of patterned paper by tightly wrapping them around a pencil. Use liquid glue to secure the end of each curl into a loop, then hot-glue the paper loops to an 8-inch florist's foam circle. Alternate the colors and patterns to create a burst of holiday color, and glue on small photos for a personalized touch. Hang the wreath with a red plaid ribbon.
