If we’re being honest, there’s one very specific kind of home decor craft that we’ve been totally obsessed with for years, all year round. Door wreaths are, for reasons we can’t even explain, one of our very favourite things in the world to make! Winter time is no exception to that, especially with all of the possibilities that the holidays bring, so we’re always on the lookout for new DIY winter door wreath designs that we’ve never tried before.
Are you feeling just as enthusiastic as we are, if not more, about the idea of making your very own winter door wreath this winter? Check out these 15 fantastic ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration and guidance!
1. DIY winter twig and frame wreath
Have you already worked hard to give your home a sort of upcycled farmhouse aesthetic, so you’re always keeping your eyes peeled now for seasonal home decor that will visually suit that scheme? Well, if you can get your hands on an old photo frame, some glass paint, and some bendable twigs, then we think you’ll have everything you need to make this awesome wreath from Setting For Four that just might be right along the lines of what you’re looking for.
2. Cozy winter sweater wreath
Have we really caught your attention already with this whole idea of upcycling something into a lovely decor piece in order to make your wreath, but you’re not so sure you need a rustic feel to go along with it? While, if you’d rather something cozy that will suit the room you do most of your knitting in, then we think you’ll get a real kick out of the way Taryn Whiteaker transformed an old sweater into a pretty wreath with a nice big bow at the top!
3. Foam snowball wreath
If you’re going to put in all the time and effort it takes to make your own door wreath, would you rather make a design that’s a little more specifically winter themed in terms of its visual style? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Daisy Mae Belle made this funny snowball wreath from foam balls, faux powdered snow, and a pretty ribbon for the bow!
4. Two step festive holiday wreath
Are you feeling quite determined to make yourself your very own winter themed door wreath but you’re also a little pressed for time, or perhaps new to crafting and looking for a project that’s much easier than what you’ve seen so far? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how A Pumpkin & A Princess made this adorably simple 2-step wreath that was built using a branch wreath base as a starting point.
5. DIY glam berry wreath
Can you already tell that you’re a pretty big fan of these circular branch wreaths that we’ve shown you but you also live in the kind of place that stays a little warmer outside in the winter, so you’re looking to keep a bit of colour in your design? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how My Blessed Life created this partially canvas wrapped design that features a big burlap bow and some bright red winter berries for umph.
6. Santa tulle Christmas wreath
If you’re going to make yourself a wreath from scratch, would you rather make something a little more whimsical and crafty looking?

Then we’d definitely suggest considering this very green but slightly minimalist looking wreath outlined step by simple step nice and clearly on Simply Homemade.
8. Flannel wrapped door wreath
Did we really pique your interest when we started talking about the idea of wrapping at least part of your wreath in some kind of ribbon but you’re convinced that you enjoy the way it looks so much that you’d rather wrap the whole thing? Well, that’s a pretty simple adjustment to make, but just in case you still feel like you could still use some guidance, here’s an awesome tutorial for doing just that and then embellishing it with branches! Sadie Seasongoods has all the information you’ll need.
