I usually put off decorating my home for Christmas until a week before the holiday. However, I’m going to actually start a month early this Christmas season. In addition, I’m going to DIY some of the decorations and not buy them at the store.

First, I have to make a wreath or a garland. There are some really beautiful DIY wreaths and garlands on the internet. So, if you’re like me and need some inspiration, here are some of my favorite Christmas wreaths and garlands:
