    @Mattie, there are thousands of listings on Hometalk, Pinterest, and other sites. But let me go over a few basics. If your door has a screen or glass door, you will need to make thinner wreaths. Styrofoam wreath forms that are flat are in all hobby and craft stores. Close to Christmas you may even find them in drug stores. If your door is exposed, then you can use round styro forms, straw wreaths, or wreaths made of real or artificial twines and small branches and greenery. You can hang your wreath with a Command hook, a small nail, or an over-the-door wreath hanger. If the wreath will be exposed to rain, don't use velvet ribbons whose colors will run. You can wrap your wreath with lots of things, fabric, plastic, greenery, paper, leaves, felt, moss, etc. You can embellish or decorate with these same materials, but don't forget ribbon, lace, bells, flowers, toys, household items, lettering, and the list is endless. If you feel insecure, make a wreath in July, August, etc. until you are more confident, but be sure you make one or more. And if you don't mind breaking down a wreath after you have made it, then you can use your wreath form many times over. Best wishes šŸ˜‡
    Big PS: go back to the top of the Hometalk page. You should see a bar of topics like Community, Crafts, and Holiday Crafts, plus others. Go to Holiday Crafts, and you will be overwhelmed by wreaths for all occasions.

    I enjoy a good floral wreath. Pick up a grapevine wreath base, and the flowers of your choice plan on covering 1\3 of the circle in flowers. Pick ribbon and make a bow to add it to one side of the wreath where the flowers end. Use the glue gun while you go to hook it down. Be mindful that the glue is covered, the leaves are good to cover the back and odd gobs.

    Start with a wreath form from a local craft store, then add things to it....burlap, bows, netting, seashells, silk flowers, holiday decor, pinecones, etc. Depending on what style you like, you can do lots of things!

    Depends on what type of wreath, holidays, seasonal or everyday. You can start out with Styrofoam, straw or even a wire frame then add from there

    So many options, full wreath/half, square shape. Styrofoam is a good start and just play with it with colors, flowers, etc. Check out ideas on hometalk search for ideas.
