What do you want your guests to think of first when they come to your door this holiday season? Yes, you want them to be drawn by the smells of good food — but what about the first thing they see? Put your guests into the Thanksgiving spirit immediately with a colorful seasonal wreath; it’s easy, and something you can do with your whole family. Have your kids outline their hands on colored paper, cut out the “hands,” and glue them around a wreath form to look like “leaves” — or turkey feathers! Nuts are always popular as a wreath ingredient; so are fall leaves, sprigs of bittersweet, and felt or crocheted flowers. Felt “leaves,” glued in overlapping patterns around a wreath form, can be any color; take your cue from your house’s main colors, or use reds, oranges, browns, and golds to make the wreath truly say “fall.”

Wrapped-yarn wreaths have almost infinite possibilities: use yarn in patterns that make stripes to match your home décor, or to contrast with it. Wrap one color yarn around most of the wreath, use another color for the “base,” and nest a bird, a collection of acorns, or a collection of felt flowers in that spot. One particularly fun example is a wreath form covered with pencils in a sunburst pattern — or a “wreath” consisting of colored clothespins, their ends fanning out to make the “foliage.” Miniature corn shucks provide a “feathery” look — and their cobs supply great colors. With a little creativity, a wreath form from the craft store, and some ordinary materials, you can transform the front door of your house into an artistic welcome that will warm guests’ hearts all season.
