    • Frosty Frolic

      For a wreath that's appropriate all winter long, add a few icicle florist's picks and snowflake-shape ornaments threaded onto an icy-blue satin ribbon. Loop the ribbon around the top center of the wreath, tying it at the back, and then add a matching bow with long tails to the bottom.

    • Wrapped Around

      The ribbon on this wreath becomes the decoration when it's wrapped around the entire wreath about eight times. The double bow at the top hangs down just enough to fill the center section.

    • It's in the Bow

      Sometimes a fresh evergreen wreath is so gorgeous, it's a shame to cover it up. Let the greenery standout, garnishing with only a few pinecones for texture and one fabulous bow made from red-and-white striped rope.

    • Satin Cuff

      This wreath features a knot of red satin at the top, forming a wide cuff around the greenery. It's a new look that creates color and interest but avoids the look of a traditional bow.

    • Red Velvet

      Traditional red velvet adorns this wreath. Make sure the bow is crisp and fresh -- wired ribbon will allow you to adjust the bow and tails to the desired curves.

    • Plaid at Two

      Red-and-white plaid ribbon underscores the country theme of this apple wreath. It is wired at the two o'clock position.

    • A Country Knot

      Abandon a bow altogether and go with a large, loosely tied knot instead. This country wreath of black wire needs only a frost of black-and-cream checked ribbon.

    • Burlap Bow

      The formality of this evergreen and leaf wreath is softened with the addition of a homespun burlap-fabric bow. Set slightly off-center, it sits in total contrast to the glass ornaments perfectly arranged in the center of the wreath.

      Creative Christmas Wreaths

      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.
