    • Circle Scraps Wreath

      You don't need to be a veteran scrapbooker to make this festive wreath. All you need are scraps of pretty paper or cardstock and circle punches or die cuts in varying sizes. Simply cut out the shapes, and glue the circles together on a cardboard wreath base.

    • Family Photo Holiday Wreath

      Design by Erin Clarkson

      Put your love of family on full display this holiday season with a quick-and-easy wreath. Add black-and-white photos and rub-on phrases to chipboard circles. Embellish as desired with rhinestones and ribbon, and tie the photo circles to a purchased wreath.

      Editor's Tip: When you're done decorating for Christmas, you can change your decor by swapping out the chipboard pieces for those decorated with other seasonal embellishments.


      SOURCES: Wreath, ribbon, chipboard accents, gems: Making Memories. Rub-ons: BasicGrey.

    • Festive Fan Wreath

      This fan-shape wreath adds creative interest to a door. Accordion-fold a strip of holiday-theme scrapbook paper and use decorative-edge scissors to cut the scalloped edge. Bring the ends of the strip together to form a circle and tape it in place. Before taping, use a small punch to put holes at the inner edge and thread cord through the holes. Add a bow or tassel embellished with ornaments at the center and a ribbon for hanging.

    • Harvest Wreath

      Design by Roseann Meehan Kermes

      Transform a plain chipboard circle into a bountiful wreath with clusters of richly colored leaves and a stuffed acorn. The acorn was embossed to give it interest and stuffed with strips of newspaper to give it dimension. Crumpled paper leaves attached to twigs frame the acorn for a burst of color. Hang the wreath from the back of a chair as a table setting decoration or on the front door to set the mood for guests as they arrive.


      SOURCES: Die cuts, die-cutting tool: AccuCut (leaves), Slice by Making Memories (letters). Jute trim: Wrights. Embossing tool: Sizzix. Glue stick: Martha Stewart Crafts.

    • Christmas Countdown Wreath

      To mark the 12 days of Christmas, glue 1?2-inch magnets to a wreath form. Print numbers and holiday icons on colored paper; place them inside the watchmaker tins, available at a crafts store. Attach magnets to the tins and stick to the magnets on the wreath for a bright countdown. Hot-glue greenery around the tins and add a red ribbon for holiday cheer.

    • Christmas Greeting Wreath

      Let your wreath do all the talking this season. Write holiday messages on small tags and tie them to an evergreen wreath with colorful ribbon.

      Editor's Tip: Don't have good handwriting? Print the greetings on the tags or use stickers.

    • Picture Frame Wreath

      Give a traditional wreath a modern twist by hanging a red picture frame from ribbon in the center. Print a holiday message to a piece of cardstock and mount it on a festive mat for a pretty display in the frame.

    • Glittery Snowflake Wreath

      Christmas sparkle is easy to achieve with this wreath on your door. Use a die-cutting tool to punch snowflakes from glittery white paper. Layer the snowflakes and glue them to a wreath form. Hang with a bold ribbon.

    • Thanksgiving Wreath

      For an easy wreath, hot-glue pressed leaves around the edge of a plate and hang it with a plate hook. Print the word "Thanksgiving" on a piece of paper and cut it to look like a banner; glue in place. Cover the plate hook with a richly colored ribbon.
