If you are looking for affordable ideas to create your beautiful home, a wreath is definitely high on the list of must-haves! Think it's too hard? Each of these wreaths is easy and do-able! You can do it and make some beautiful decor for your home!

Why should you consider making an all-season wreath?

  1. Rather than a wreath that is only up for a month or so, one that is all season friendly can be left out year round, making it an affordable choice for the budget-conscious.
  2. Tight on space? No more storing multiple wreaths in your garage or attic.
  3. Make an all-season wreath work for any season by adding a seasonal bow or ribbon.

I've been crafting for decades and am showing you 9 of my favorite all season DIY wreaths. 

Happy wreath making!

9 Affordable DIY Wreaths for All Seasons

When you click the title link, you'll be taken to a step by step tutorial to show you exactly how to make the wreath, along with a clickable supplies list to get you started!

1. Oversized Boxwood Wreath

Faux boxwood shines in this oversized wreath. Because it's made of sturdy grapevine and faux boxwood, this wreath can be hung outdoors, although I would recommend keeping it out of direct sunlight. Making this wreath work for the seasons is as simple as adding seasonal elements. See how I turned this same wreath into a temporary Christmas wreath here, and how I added my favorite faux tulips for a Spring wreath here.

2. Make a Fresh Herb Wreath

If your garden herbs aren't big enough, look at your local home improvement store, or even the grocery store. This is a wonderful way to dry fresh herbs in place and will make your kitchen smell amazing. I can't wait to grow enough lavender to make a fresh lavender wreath!

3. Paper Bag Copper Magnolia Wreath

It doesn't get any more budget-friendly than creating with paper bags! I'll be honest - I was surprised by just how good this wreath turned out! Joanna Gaines may be responsible for magnolia wreath's popularity in recent years, but my copper version is stunning! While I did make this wreath for my Fall decor, it really is beautiful, and neutral enough, to work all year!

4. Upcycle a Thrifted Berry Wreath

This project is a great way to customize a store-bought wreath for your home and style! If you can look past the color like I did, you can reimagine a berry wreath from a faded Christmas wreath! I used spray paint to transform this wreath in an afternoon and what a difference!

5. 5-Minute Greenery Wreath

For those without a lot of time, this wreath really does come together in minutes! The trick is to use a realistic looking greenery, like this silver falls bush I found at Hobby Lobby. You could also use silver dollar eucalyptus stems.

6. Floral and Wood Slice DIY Wreath

If you love dreamy florals, this wreath is a stunner! I used blush pink peonies and dahlias but use whatever flowers you love! The unexpected element on this wreath are the small wood slices. While I made this wreath for Spring one year, I kept it up all year long because it was just so beautiful!

7. Fresh Magnolia Wreath

If you're lucky enough to live in the south, gathering pruned magnolia leaves is a cost-effective way to a beautiful wreath! The leaves will curl a little as they dry to a more muted shade, and the backsides are a velvety brown, just amazing! I put my wreath together on a straw base.

8. Easy Ticking Stripe Ribbon Wreath

This DIY wreath continues to be a favorite! Ticking stripe ribbon makes for a charming wreath that can work in any room of your home - try it on the porch! Wired ribbon is a must to get your DIY wreath to hold its shape!

9. Easy Coffee Filter Wreath for $5

One of the biggest bangs for your buck, the coffee filter wreath looks like a mass of flower petals when it's complete! It takes about an hour to make, start to finish but the results are show-stopping! I used white coffee filters, but it would be stunning with unbleached filters too! Or you could dye your coffee filters a custom color - so many possibilities.

Tips for hanging a wreath anywhere

A wreath doesn't always come with a hanger or look right hanging from one of those over-the-door hangers. I've come up with several creative solutions for hanging a wreath wherever I want one - including the fronts of hutches, mirrors, cabinets. Keep reading for all my tips!

Hanging a wreath from a mirror front, hutch or cabinet

I rely on small command hooks and either fishing line or ribbon when I want to hang a wreath this way. I love that it's a damage-free way to hang a wreath when you want to hide the working parts. Here is a short video tutorial showing you exactly how I use the command hooks in this way.

Hanging a wreath on a door without a metal hanger

Most wreaths have a decorative ribbon, and an elegant way to hang a wreath is by using a long length of matching ribbon. Here's how to do it:
  1. Determine exactly where you want the wreath to hang (how low) on the door
  2. Cut the ribbon to that size, remembering to double it
  3. Wrap the ribbon around the top of the wreath, lining up the ends
  4. Staple the tops of the ribbon to the top of your door 
Unless you have a metal door, it's easy to staple the ribbon right to the very top of the door. The ends are unseen, staples are easy to remove, and the look is elegant and streamlined (see my coffee filter wreath hanging above).

I hope these tips are helpful and you're excited to make one of these all season wreaths for your home!
