22 Wreaths to Make with Leftover Materials

Decorative wreaths are absolutely beautiful and traditional Christmas decorations. Unfortunately, they can be expensive and short-lived. But there's good news! If you learn how to make a wreath yourself with any of these 22 Wreaths to Make with Leftover Materials, you'll save a fortune and your wreath will last year after year.

We've got wreaths that are colorful, classic, and totally creative. No matter what style you use to decorate your home at Christmas, you'll find a wreath that you'll want to include.

Fabric Wreaths

If you have old T-shirts or sweaters and you're never going to wear them again, you can upcycle them into your next wreath craft. These fabric wreaths are great handmade Christmas decorations for your door. Guests won't suspect that these wreaths came from recycled materials because they look so cute and professional when finished!

Upcycled Christmas Decorations

Ornaments have a tendency to accumulate out of control, and Christmas lights have a tendency to burn out after one season (or even one use). Instead of getting rid of these Christmas decorations, use them in your next wreath project! Upcycled Christmas decorations are a great supply for your Christmas crafts.

Recycled Wreaths

Take upcycling to a new level with any of these recycled wreaths. Grab a box of sandwich baggies, save those wine corks, and don't you dare throw away those cereal boxes. You can use a variety of unexpected materials for your Christmas wreath-making.

Wreaths from Recycled Craft Supplies

Chances are you've got something in your craft drawer that can be used in a wreath craft. Maybe you have too many buttons left over from various sewing projects, or you didn't make as many beaded necklaces as you had hoped. It may be too late to return your unused craft supplies to the store, but you can still craft wreaths from recycled craft supplies.

Crafts Made from Nature

Whether you have a walnut, magnolia, or evergreen tree in your backyard, you can make a wreath using parts from these trees! Enlist your kids to help you collect walnuts, magnolia leaves, and pinecones, and get to work on your next wreath craft.

Love making pine cone wreaths! Here is one of mine.

I made the sandwich bag wreath. So awesome, easy and cheap.

Almost did not check this one out because of it reading as "Xmas wreaths", to me that is disrespectful. It should be "Christmas".
