Get creative to craft an out-of-the-ordinary wreath that's sure to be the talk of the neighborhood. Cover a foam wreath form with layers of playing cards, adding mounting tape between each layer for a three-dimensional effect. For added color, attach red and green poker chips in one corner to resemble a sprig of holly.

Crushed beer can and bottle-top wreaths don't fit every situation, but they're right at home in a bachelor pad or man cave. To create, crush the cans into interesting shapes then use pliers or metal-cutting shears to create a hole in the back of each can. Poke picture wire through the holes, then fasten the cans tightly to a grapevine wreath form.
