grapevine christmas wreath (3)
Decorating Christmas wreaths is one of the simplest and most popular holiday decorating ideas that are used today. The tradition of decorating with wreaths began in Ancient Greece and Rome. Not only were decorative wreaths used in homes during the pagan New year for health, but wreaths were also made from various plants to show status and skills when worn as a crown. Adapting original wreaths has become a tradition during Christmas, but their origins can make Christmas wreaths even more appealing.
The Christmas wreath is based on the traditions of goodwill and fortitude. Because we love to embellish our traditions, Christmas wreaths have evolved into gorgeous creations of color, texture, and style that make Christmas wreaths a modern must-have decoration for the holidays. If you don’t find the perfect wreath ready-made, think about how to make Christmas wreaths yourself to get exactly the result you are looking for.
Your choice of Christmas wreaths – this style is yours! Are you elegant and traditional or modern and funky? A holiday decor style that you already like in your home is a great place to find inspiration for Christmas wreaths. After all, a wreath on your front door offers visitors your unique “Welcome” sign, and one indoors speaks to you throughout the season.
For a traditional Christmas wreath, look for classic elements such as pine cones, berries, ribbons, and decorations. Earthy styles can include apples, real or from a craft store, as well as an assortment of greens from your yard. A funky style might require one of these fun options that can be found on Goodhousekeeping – a tie wreath for the recently retired, a cork wreath for the wine lover, or a cookie-cutter wreath for the Baker.
Whether your style is sophisticated or cutting-edge, have fun this holiday by hanging Christmas decorations indoors and outdoors, looking for or making a wreath that reflects you. Have fun and make Christmas wreaths that bring you joy!
