Christmas wouldn’t look quite as cheery without festive wreaths to adorn your front door, mantel, or a showcase spot in your home. For centuries, these decorations have symbolized strength, endurance or victory. Though traditional wreaths are crafted out of evergreen branches, today’s wreaths can be made from just about anything to add a touch of Christmas magic—or sophistication—to your entryway. These Pinterest-inspired wreaths are a great start for your holiday decorations.
Traditional Style with a Modern Twist
If you want to welcome visitors into your home with a traditional wreath with an updated spin, this DIY-craft might be the way to go. Depending on the colors and ornaments you choose, you can dress this wreath up or down to match your overall Christmas decor.
All you’ll need is a grapevine wreath, a wooden letter (something significant to you – could be the first initial of your last name), craft paint, a few shatter-proof ornaments, and ribbon/netting to complete the look.
All these materials are easy to find at your local craft store. The process is simple: paint the letter (stripes or polka dots are a great touch), then attach the letter, ornaments, and ribbon to the wreath to decorate. For more detailed instructions check out SusieHarrisBlog.com.
