A holiday round-up of easy DIY wreaths for front doors. From elegant Evergreen wreaths to cozy rustic wreaths made from recycled socks, all of these fabulous (and cheap) wreath ideas are easy to make and will look amazing on your front door this Christmas.





So here we are in November, and instead of turkey talk (aka Thanksgiving, don't ya know), it seems everyone has Christmas 2019 on their minds. I am already thinking about decorating ideas that won't break our budget, and even figuring out where to put the Christmas tree this year. And I am itching to take down the amazing fall wreath on the door and put up a just as amazing holiday wreath on the door! Which is like the first step towards saying it is officially Christmas!

If you have only used store-bought Christmas wreaths before, and have no idea how to make a Christmas wreath from scratch, (but kind of want to give it a try this year) you must take a look at the adorable and creative DIY wreath ideas on this list. You are going to love these wreaths. Not to mention making your own Christmas wreath is cheaper than buying pre-made ones at the store. Go ahead. Take a peek, and get ready to officially welcome the holidays at your house too!


1. Simple Fun Candy Cane Wreath





This adorable Christmas wreath idea is super easy to make and is going to save you money (which always a good thing at Christmas time.) Seriously, all you need are candy canes and a hot glue gun. Add a cute holiday decoration in the middle of the wreath and you are ready to make your front door fun and festive for the holidays.

This particular wreath idea shown here comes from Trendy and Wild, you can see that post here. Martha Stewart offers step by step directions for a similar version of this Candy Cane Wreath you may want to check out as well.



2. Cozy DIY Clothespin Christmas Wreath 





I love the cozy look of this easy simple wreath for the front door.  Best of all, this is another easy holiday wreath you can DIY in no time. All you will need to make this wreath for your door are clothespins, paint and one of those metal rings used for crafting.





3.  DIY Peppermint Candy Christmas Wreath





I posted about this incredibly fun and festive homemade Peppermint Christmas wreath last Christmas, but I wanted to include it again in this list because it is so cute! All you need to make this easy DIY wreath are Peppermint candies, an inexpensive styrofoam wreath, white or red duct tape, and floral wire.




4.  Star Cookie Cutters Wreath




You know those Christmas cookie cutters that are in your kitchen drawer? Repurpose the star-shaped cookie cutter designs into this adorable holiday wreath. You can make this simple star wreath idea quickly, and it would make an adorable holiday decoration to hang on a kitchen wall. Of course, it would also be a perfect wreath on the front door to welcome your holiday guests. All you need are cookie cutters in the shape of stars, silver paper clips, and red twist ties. A sprig of evergreen at the top of the wreath adds just the right Christmasy touch.

5. Fresh Evergreen Wreath

6.  Moss Wreath 




This gorgeous Moss wreath for Christmas is another easy homemade holiday wreath that is going to look beautiful on the front door. All you need to make your own wreath is a foam wreath form, a bag of moss, your trusty hot glue gun and a pretty red ribbon to add a splash of festive Christmas color.





7.  Recycled Socks Wreath




Put old socks to good use by making this unusual rustic Christmas wreath. This DIY holiday wreath idea comes from Northstory, and I absolutely love it! The author used socks, a couple of embroidery hoops, yarn, her hot glue gun, some red and green felt and a cute wooden Christmas sign she found at a thrift store to make this recycled sock wreath for under $10. I am pretty sure these are more on the mini-wreath size, which would make them awesome homemade Christmas tree decorations. But I imagine you could also make these wreaths larger so they would work perfectly as front door wreaths too.

You gotta love the idea of using old socks to make a cozy fun Christmas wreath, am I right??

8.  Holly Berry Striped Christmas Wreath





This is one of the cutest and merriest DIY front door wreath ideas I have seen yet. The good news is that as cute as it is, it is also a very easy wreath to make (and maybe even sell, if you are looking to make and sell Christmas wreaths this year.)

In the meantime, how cheery and welcoming will this red and white wreath look on your door this Christmas?




9.  DIY Snowman Wreath

6 Ultimate Best Ever Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Recipes To Make This Week


Six of the best chocolate chip cookie bars ever. If your family loves warm gooey chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven, then they are going to go crazy over these super quick and easy chocolate chip bars baked in a pan and ready to eat in a flash.












Fall is the official start of the baking season to me. Of course, to me, the fall season also means that instead of searching for miracle summer diets and having nightmares over trying on bathing suits, I now get to relax and search for fun fall crafts for kids to make!

One of the best easiest desserts to start off the baking season are soft chewy chocolate chip cookie bars. They are so much easier to make than regular traditional chocolate chip cookies where you have to scoop individual spoonfuls of cookie dough onto the cooking sheet. (does that sound a little over-board complaining-ish?? Yikes.)

But seriously, making a 9x13 pan of chocolate chip bar cookies is quick and easy, especially when time is short. Plus they make the perfect treat to share while making fun crafts with kids or a special after-school surprise for the kids.

Mix the ingredients in a bowl and spread the cookie dough in a baking pan, and bake. Cut the cookies into squares and enjoy!! Easy Peasy.

These are six of my favorite chocolate chip cookie bar recipes. These cookie bars are mouth-watering delicious. But remember, no mention of healthy recipes were made in this post. Mmmkay??)







Ultimate Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Oozing chocolate has never looked so good, am I right?? These truly decadent chocolate chip cookie bars are made with sugar, vanilla, and Semi-sweet chocolate chips. And a couple of other basic ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. Use a 9x13 pan for cookie bars if you have one (this size is perfect if you want to make a double batch) or an 8x8 square pan will also work for this recipe.




M&M Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

If you want to surprise your kids with an extra special after school snack, make these easy chewy m&m cookie bars (In October, switch out the regular m&ms with Halloween m&ms, for a fun Halloween treat.)

All you need to make this quick and easy chocolate chip bars recipe is one mixing bowl, one 13x9 inch baking dish ( lined with parchment paper or foil) and a few ingredients (which may already be in your pantry.)

Use holiday m&ms to turn this recipe into a super easy Christmas cookie bars recipe as well!

So maybe I lied, just a little. Because oatmeal chocolate chip cookie bar recipes are actually a little bit healthy after all. It is kind of like getting the best of both dessert worlds. A little bit healthy, and a little sweet and decadent.

These deliciously soft and chewy  chocolate chip cookie bars are just like old fashioned oatmeal cookies (sans the raisins) except there is no need for a million little baking steps (I exaggerate, but you know what I mean.)

The beauty of making easy cookie bar recipes.



Nestle Toll House Cookie Bars Recipe

If you have not had the chance to make Nestle's Toll House cookie bars yet, you should probably put this at the top of your "to try baking list."  Traditional toll house cookie bars are baked in a 9x13 inch pan and then cut into squares.

But if you do not have one handy, no worries. This easy chocolate chip pan cookie recipe uses a 15x10 pan and they are every bit as delicious.



Sweet Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars With Cereal







Who would have thought that simple cereal bars could become decadently delicious desserts? This chocolate chip cereal bar recipe made with cereal uses not one but TWO kinds of chocolate chips, chocolate caramel nougat candy bars, and almonds.

I did mention that these desserts may have not so necessarily healthy stuff, right?
