What better way to greet guests to your home during the holiday season than with a welcoming wreath? We scoured Pinterest for some of the cleverest (or at least cutest) DIY wreath crafts, and here’s what we found. (To make it easy on you, we linked directly to the source to save you the hassle of trying to find the projects themselves.)

yarn ball wreath 

Yarn Ball Wreath
This neutral white and gray "snowball" wreath can continue to be displayed after Christmas, but if you like, you can customize your colors in a more seasonal combination. For added texture, Two Junk Chix bloggers covered the wreath shape in burlap, wrapped a few balls in jute string, and included a handful of sweet gum balls.
