Unique Homemade Holiday Wreaths

Did you know that the holiday wreath as we know it hails back to ancient Rome? Back then a wreath hung on a door was a sign of victory. This year, celebrate a victory over ho-hum, ready-made plastic wreaths and hang a unique homemade one instead. At Taylor Morrison our favorites range from elegant to sweet.

Here are a few of our picks for unique DIY wreaths, complete with instructions.

Jingle Bell Wreath

If you’re having a white Christmas at your house in Denver, this could be the wreath for you. The small wreaths can be hung on doorknobs throughout your home, so while you’re staying cozy indoors you can still enjoy the tinkling of sleigh bells.

Candy Wreath

Be sure to use your favorite wrapped candies for this one, because you can actually eat the wreath! Using three pounds of candies wrapped with twists at the ends, a white coat hanger and some floral tape, you can make a very sweet decorative wreath.

Apple Holiday Wreath

The apple wreath is perfect for folks in our Southern California homes, like people who own Taylor Morrison houses in Irvine. To make it, you’ll need plywood, nails, tools, spray paint, a bow, some holiday greenery and 20 pounds of green apples. Delicious!

Pine Cone Wreath

This instructional video shows how to make a wreath of pinecones with help from a glue gun. Gather up some fallen cones for your project or buy decorative pinecones in a local craft store.

Christmas Ornament Wreath

Use round ornaments of different sizes and textures, choosing whatever colors you want. For instance, this wreath shown along with assembly instructions features apple greens, silvers and gold.
