This giant paper ornament Christmas wreath also falls into the nostalgia category.

The big bulbous bells remind people of their favorites, like The Nutcracker, A Christmas Carol, and more. Add a bow like this to tie everything together.

Feel free to play around with the size of the ornament, too–the outcome will vary with how many you add to your wreath.

Try this birdseed wreath for nature lovers or those who live near the woods!

I recommend keeping it on the inside of the storm door during winter and placing a birdseed-friendly wreath out for the birds to share the season’s joy.

Depending on how you make it, the wreath for the door may not be suitable for wild animals to eat, so throw it in the compost if you’re not sure after the season’s over.

4. 7-Minute Eucalyptus Wreath

Adding eucalyptus to your home anytime during the year can guarantee a much-welcomed scent boost.

During the winter, weaving the fresh plant onto a hoop and letting it dry makes for a stunning fresh green take compared to traditional wreath decor.

Add rosemary sprigs or other fresh herbs, dried fruit, or other goodies to boost your scent. Find more winter decor ideas for home!
