    There are several cute wreath ideas here. Many of them can be used for holidays throughout the year.

  5. I love all these great ideas! I think the yarn one would be easiest for me bc I have tons of yarn LOL, but honestly, I’ve been wanting to try a pinecone wreath with several years’ worth of wired pinecones/berries salvaged from Costco wreaths LOL!

    I enjoy making our own wreaths for our home.
