30+ Upcycling and Repurposing Projects for Christmas Wreath Ideas

30+ Upcycling and Repurposing Projects for Christmas Wreath Ideas

Last year, I put together a collection of repurposed and upcycled DIY Christmas ornaments– because who doesn’t love creating fun and unusual ornaments for their tree? Well, I feel the same way about Christmas wreath ideas…incorporating vintage or whimsical elements to give your door festive character! And while DIY wreaths are fun no matter what time of year, I just have a special soft spot in my heart for the winter holiday kind.

There are limitless upcycled Christmas wreath ideas out there, using any number of thrift store finds, vintage treasures, or other unexpected materials that can hang from a door. From barrel rings, to clothespin bags…recycled plastic to old Christmas cards, and everything in between. And I’m certainly no stranger to Christmas wreath ideas myself…

Such as this rustic Christmas wreath that was made with flannel fabric from thrifted shirts

Or this playful holiday wreath that I made by upcycling a cookie tray from the thrift store

So, to get your holiday craft juices flowing, I’ve assembled some of the best Christmas wreath ideas around- get it? A round? 

And they’re all upcycled, repurposed, or come straight from your recycling bins!

Ok, no more punny puns…onto the repurposed Christmas wreaths…

Christmas wreath ideas and DIY holiday wreaths


  1. Lois Stimax says

    I have a soft spot for shutters, so I love that one. But I also like the ones with jello molds and cookie cutters. Thank goodness I have more than one place I hang wreaths! Thanks for the inspiration!!

  2. Margaret Bramer says

    When Insaw the door tags Inthought they were ceiling fan blades!….Not a bad idea!!

    • Sadie Seasongoods says

      You could totally do that with fan blades- I saw a fall version (“Give” and “Thanks”) on a pair of fan blades and it looked perfect!

  3. These are all super neat! I especially like the big bulb wreath. I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for vintage bulbs like that!!!

  4. Really great article and some interesting ideas!

  5. Thanks for including my junk Christmas Wreath in your round-up.

    • Sadie Seasongoods says

      Thanks, Sharon- it was a perfect project to include! Hoping that the closed linky format sent more clicks your way than my old, cumbersome format. 🙂

  6. Thank you for bringing such a nice selection together for us! I liked TOO many of them. the flannel wrapped one, the snow shoe, the embroidery hoop with cream sweater, the light bulb one, the Jello/cake mold one, the ceiling medallion, and the cake pan one were my faves. I tend to make artificial green ones with pointsetttias, picks, and a bow so it was good to see “outside the box.” Want to make one with a picture frame someday/ Have 5 homemade ones drying outside made from house ivy waiting for inspiration; ya gotta love it. How many times do you get to combine needed yard work, arm exercise, craft preparation, and economy (I won’t have to buy grapevine wreathes) at the same time!!! I also love springtime ones with faux birds, nests with eggs, and apple/ dogwood or forsythia blossoms.

  7. Love these ideas! Already working on your mason jar lid Christmas ornaments!

    • Sadie Seasongoods says

      Yay!! I’m hoping to have a new mason jar lid ornament project this year (the wreath ornies are from a few years ago). 🙂

  8. It’s so hard to pick a favorite, they are all wonderful! Loving these so much that I have to scroll back up and take a second look.

  9. Thanks for including my silver platter in your line up!

  10. Great round up! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

  11. Wreaths are one of my favorite things to decorate with during the holidays. Every mirror in my house has one hanging from it. Each one of these wreaths are fabulous and I love all the vintage goodness. Pinned
