Let's make a wreath! We've gathered eight wreath how-tos from Erin McClendis, Michael Giannelli, Hilton Carter, Karin Woodward, Jessica Cohen, Sarah Blasi, Amy Merrick, and Laura Dowling. Styles range from lush florals and fruit and berries to foraged greenery and dried flower creations. Find the right one for your door (or gate, or windows...) plus easy bows and ribbon techniques.
