I LOVE LOVE LOVE Wreaths!!!! Especially Christmas wreaths! A Big, beautiful, full, be-ribboned wreath on a front door makes me swoon! What an amazing Holiday welcome to all who visit! Small wreath in unexpected places have the same effect on me! Wreaths are such a time honored symbol of Christmas. I use wreaths all over my home at Christmastime. They are an easy way to spread Christmas cheer!
Before I begin today, I want to let you know that I am being featured at AN EXTRAORDINARY DAY, a beautiful blog authored by Diane! Please stop over there and see my FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS VIGNETTE. Please stop by An Extraordinary Day, leave a message and say HI!!! After you read this post, of course!
Now let’s talk about WREATHS!!!! And creative ways to use them…
I hang wreaths from my glass front kitchen cupboards each year. The wreaths often change, but I’ve had a love affair with black and white ribbons at Christmas for the past few years. The picture above was from last Christmas… and the picture below is from this year! This year I choose long, spiky pines!
This year I also hung wreaths on the back of my kitchen chairs. A fun and unexpected Christmas decoration!
Wreaths and shutters are made for each other! Here are a few examples!
I love boxwood wreaths. Here, preserved boxwood wreaths hanging on a mirror and down the main stairs! Again, loving the black and white check with greens! I using a lot of “love” in this post, aren’t I!
Wreaths on mirrors look gorgeous. Especially if they have a little bling! You won’t believe how I made the wreath below! Look for a post about it next week!
Now here’s a fun wreath made from Coffee Filters! Something different and fluffy! Click HERE to see an easy and doable diy!
Beds look amazingly festive with a wreath hanging from the bottom or top of them!
And don’t forget a few Wreath Pillows… they look so pretty on sofas, chairs and beds!!!
But don’t just hang wreaths up on walls, windows, doors, banisters, shutters or other vertical surfaces…use them to sit under other decor such as dishes, candles, trees… well, almost any decor that needs a little “fluff”.
My very very favorite thing to do with wreaths? Make a gorgeous live wreath from an old motley fake one! This is so so easy!!! They certainly have that Christmas WOW factor…. and no one will know how you made them! Click HERE to see how!
I hope this has inspired you to use wreaths creatively this Christmas!!!!
