There are tons of ideas for making your own holiday wreath this Christmas. The trick to making one more personal is to add your own touches with material and decorations you've already got on hand. Not all of the wreaths that I'm posting here come with how-tos or a tutorial but it's easy enough to find instructions online for almost any kind of wreath you imagine.
Backyard Twiggy Wreath
Are you pruning your backyard bushes? Don't toss those prunings. Instead turn them into a twiggy wreath that you can keep up even after Christmas. Pam over at Design Fanatic provides a full tutorial. You can always add a few holiday decorations or ornaments for Christmas and then remove after.

Donna's Twiggy Wreath
This is another twiggy version from Austrialian whiz chef, Donna Hay. No longer on offer but should be easy enough to make.
Paper Feather Wrath
You can easily make a wreath out of whatever paper you've got on hand! Lucy over at Craftberry Bush shows you how to make this wreath and you can use up any paper you have on hand.
Wreath of Leaves
You can purchase this magnolia leaf wreath over at Painted Fox Home or you can replicate it with felt leaves instead.
Dolly Peg Wreath
I recently sold my vintage clothes (dolly) peg collection and the lady who bought it made this mirror frame for her laundry room using those pegs. You'll need a few dozen dolly pegs and an embroidery hoop for this one.
My Own Plastic Bag Wreath
Did you ever make these at grade school? We did and it appears kids still do. This wreath takes a bit of time to cut up all of the plastic strips but the results are pretty nice. Perfect for a long lasting outdoor wreath and it does last forever. Perfect for hanging outside.
