Nothing is more welcoming than wreaths on front doors, specially during the holiday season.  I love the look and scent of a fresh pine wreath that greets me before I even ring the door bell.

But who says wreaths must only be made from fresh pine, or must only be hung at the front door? Not I!

There are many things you can turn into a “wreath” and many ways you can use it.  And if you’re not into wreaths how about a swag instead?

Here are some crafty ideas for your front door decor this Christmas, or any other time.  Most of them can be done with dollar store supplies and take very little time.  You’ll love so many of these ideas you probably won’t be able to stop at just one, but there’s no rule that says you can only have one wreath per household!
