If you prefer to keep your holiday decor on the simple side, minimalist Christmas wreaths are perfect. Their pared-down beauty celebrates the season quietly (plus they're a lot easier to make than a full-sized wreath).

All you need is a simple metal ring or grapevine wreath and greenery. Use trimmings from shrubs and plants around your yard (or clip fake boughs you found in that box in the basement or at the thrift store). Mix in seed pods, berry sprigs, and perhaps an ornament or two for color and texture.

Attach your greenery with floral wire. Use glue or wire to affix the accents.

Here are a few examples to inspire you!

Just a few eucalyptus branches are enough to to make this half wreath festive. Use metallic cord to coordinate with the metal ring.

Use sprays of tiny leaves to make a full yet delicate wreath. Add fragrance with stems of herbs such as thyme and rosemary.

A fuzzy yarn-wrapped hoop festooned with a couple silver bells, pine cones and white pine clippings make a sweetly festive door hanger.

This humble grapevine entwined with fir tips and sprigs of delicate foliage would be easy to create.

If you have ivy in your garden, all you need is a hoop, some berries and a few pine cones to make a wreath as pretty as this.

A loop of fir branches makes a perfectly easy minimalist wreath. Add berries and wooden ornaments for a personal touch.

If you only have a few branch clippings, join 2 bunches at the center of a metal ring and call it good. Attach an ornament at the center for color.

This elegant half wreath mixes contrasting shapes and textures, with long-needled pine clippings and round eucalyptus leaves. It must smell heavenly!
