Geometric Wood Slat Wreath
Cut six 36″ [91.44 cm] square dowels (#27594) in half to make a dozen 18″ [45.72 cm] pieces. Paint them red and glue together in a tic-tac-toe pattern to create a centre circle.
Pretty PVC Wreath

Candy canes were the inspiration for this holiday wreath. Red-and-white reflective tape (#34093) applied to PVC coupling pipe (#161231) make the super-easy stripes. Cut a hole in the middle of a 5-gallon [18.9 L] bucket lid, then use a glue gun to adhere the pipe pieces.

Tiny Circles Wood Dowel Wreath

Wooden dowels ranging from 1⁄2″ to 2″ [1.27 cm x 5.08”] in diameter and cut to 2” [5.08 cm] are glued together to form a circle. Leave the wreath as is for an all natural holiday decoration, or paint it in bright hue of your choice for fun holiday colour.

Fold-It-Up Belt Wreath

Start with a green nylon tie-down belt (#317651) and cut off the buckle and hook on the ends. Fold the belt into 3” [7.62 cm] loops. Insert a 14-gauge wire (#62931) through the center of each loop, then bend to form a circle.

Snowflake Wreath

Cut square dowels (#27546) into 5″ [12.7 cm], 2 3⁄4″ [6.985 cm], and 2 1⁄2″ [6.35 cm] pieces to create this retro-fun snowflake wreath.

Monkey Business Wreath

Double up vinyl tubing (#22275) to form a circle, and then wrap with strips of drop cloth. Glue the ends of the drop cloth to secure in place. Add sock monkey ornaments (#351307), metallic balls, and greenery for whimsical accents.

Wrapping Paper Wreath

Roll 8 1⁄2″×11″ [21.6 cm x 27.9 cm] pieces of leftover wrapping paper around a smooth pencil to create slender tubes. Connect with clear tape. Cut a 20″ [50.8 cm] doughnut shape out of corrugated cardboard for the base. Divide the base into four sections to evenly distribute the tubes. Apply a stripe of glue around the base and arrange the tubes. Play around with colour and pattern as you layer the paper.
