Another Burlap Wreath Idea:  This is another idea using burlap with a styrofoam wreath form. The rest of these items can be found at any craft store or even from The Dollar Store.  You could also dig into your current stash of decorations for embellishments for your wreath.

Book Page Wreath:  I actually made one of these recently and they are even more awesome up close than in this picture!  Mine was larger and had room in the center to hang an ornament or Monogram letter.

Monogram “Wreath”:  This is a fun alternative to a traditional wreath.  Purchase a large letter from Michael’s.  It could be wooden, cardboard, or metal.  Then you can glue anything on it: ribbon, tiny holly berries, sequins, twine, etc.

Before making your own wreath, be sure to check out these Great Ways to Save Money at Michael’s.
