Wreaths have been around since the ancient times, mainly used for decoration with symbolic meaning behind them. In modern times, we use them to celebrate major holidays, the most popular being Christmas. Lately, I have noticed the popularity of wreaths for every occasion– springtime, Halloween, birthdays, etc. Wreaths are great to have up year-round, and are a simple way to make a slight change of decor in your living space. They are also a fabulous DIY project. I hope this roundup inspires you to take a look in your crafting stash and turn some of those leftovers you’ve been hanging onto into something pretty and new!

The links below the photos will take you back to the original site where I found these beauties (most do include a tutorial).
