wreaths

This holiday season, decorate your house in a handmade wreath that’s all-natural. You can make these with found, foraged and farmed items around town—talk about decking the halls with sustainable spirit! Here are our top seven picks for DIY all-natural holiday wreaths.

  1. Gorgeous Succulent Wreath, Shelterness: For those living in tropical and warm-weather locales, this wreath made from multi-colored succulents is simply gorgeous.
  2. Natural Fall Wreath, Shauna Mailloux: For the forest forager, gather a basket full of acorns, pine cones, nuts, seeds, berries, whatever brown materials you can find on the ground. This wreath looks laborious to prepare, but with simply stunning results to make you queen of the hobbits.
  3. Cushion Moss Wreath, Martha Stewart: Even the mistress of crafts goes au natural from time to time. We’re particularly fond of this elegant, draped wreath made of various mosses. It’s simple and bright—just be sure to mist it to keep from drying out too quickly.
  4. Fragrant Herb Wreath, Martha Stewart: We didn’t want to go Martha-nuts, but this wreath also deserves attention. Made from farmers market-fresh rosemary and bay laurel, this easy wreath will fill your house with wintry aromas.
  5. Nature Wreaths, maya*made: These quick wreaths, made from pine cones, are great to make when short on time—or even better as a hands-on craft with the kids.
  6. Orange Christmas Wreath, Deliacreates: Dried oranges add color and sweet aroma to a natural pine wreath. Bonus: Reuse the orange slices after the holidays for a homemade potpourri!
  7. Living Plant Wreath, Apartment Therapy: Taking a nod from all of the above wreaths, this festive-looking creation combines succulents, pine cones, greens and flowers in one. We love it!
