Wreaths are some of the most popular crafts submitted to me by my readers. You all have tried just about everything in the wreath department, and I know why: wreaths are simple, pretty, a great way to adorn your home, and can be customized in infinite ways.

Thanksgiving Place Cards by Heather at My Frugal Family: $.23 each
From Heather: I made a wreath from Dollar Tree ornaments, and wound up with extra ornaments in nice Harvest colors. After going through some supplies, I found I had some pretty artificial autumn leaves. I glued several together, then used a gold paint marker to glitz the leaves up a bit, then lastly, added an ornament to the top. I was able to make 5 up for my family of 5. We’ll use these on our Thanksgiving table this year. I am toying with the idea of adding a leaf to the back side, with names on them.
Blessing Platter by Kara at Creations by Kara: $2
The dollar store has these cool metallic platters that I always look at and want to craft with, but I have yet to post a single tutorial using them. Well, Kara thought of a great use for them, and made a custom plaque. You can decorate these in any way you want!
