Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and easy craft tutorials.
There are so many types of wreaths to make; fabric, mesh, ribbon, raffia and the list goes on. But, here we're going to show you how to make wreaths of many kinds. It is a given that when you use precious time to craft a wreath, you want it to be the most beautiful wreath you can make. I've searched and found some of, what I consider, the most unique and elegant wreath crafts available. I feel confident that, when you take a look at the choices I've made, you'll agree that these wreaths are among the very best.
The wreaths listed are made from pine cones, nuts, Christmas balls, tulle and/or fabric flowers. Look over the assortment of wreath craft ideas and choose one to make for your home. Then enjoy the satisfaction that comes with making something yourself.For the directions to the burlap wreath above, go to Craftaholic Anonymous.
1. Twine and Berry Wreath
I love the idea and looks of this twine wreath. There are so many beautiful berry garlands, that each wreath made could be very unique. Go to simply+kierste for the basic tutorial for making a twine wreath and then customize your wreath with a berry garland and a beautiful ribbon hanger.
2. Pebble Faux Succulent Wreath
I could definitely see an outstanding wreath like this pebble one hanging in a beach house or a summer cottage. The faux succulents make this a long lasting wreath, with no watering. You'll find the instructions for making this pebble and faux succulent wreath at the SHABBY CREEK COTTAGE.
3. Which Witch Wreath

There's something about peacock feather that makes me think elegant and costly, but you can make this peacock feather wreath inexpensively by using craft feathers and following the directions at the SHABBY CREEK COTTAGE.

Something as simple as changing the letter to a word like "JOY" or "NOEL" are what I'm thinking. Craft stores have many wooden words to choose from. The tutorial for this wreath is found at the Susie Harris site.

Another wreath that can be customized to fit your decorating themes and colors by changing the colors of the pom poms. This doesn't have to be a Halloween only wreath. The directions for making this yarn pom pom wreath is found at simply+kierste.

15. Book Page Wreath
Would you believe that the base of this wreath is a pool noodle? Mark montano gives some nice instructions for making this wreath. I think the thing that really makes this wreath special is the light spraying of gold paint. Beautiful!
