Wreath It Up!
Begin with the base material for your wreath. You can go to your local craft store and purchase the blank holiday greenery wreath, or you can create your own base and purchase a wreath form (in Styrofoam, straw, grapevine, or wire-clamp wreath form). You could base your wreath with peacock feathers or faux red roses… the sky is the limit.
Be creative! When you’re actually thinking about the types of elements your wreath will contain, of course go for hydrangeas and Christmas bells… but why not mini soccer balls if your family is into sports or a long strand of faux pearls if you’re into jewelry? Throw in some faux fruit and berries, why not? The best wreaths have an element of the unexpected.
Play with textures! You need some sparkly things, some ribbony things, some flowery things, and some Christmas-y things! It all works!!!
Don’t forget the twist ties! Whether you use the floral wire, pipe cleaners, or trash-bag twist ties, make sure your ornaments will stay on! Especially if you plan on displaying your wreath on your front door, you need to be sure nothing will be falling off and breaking.
Holiday decorating is all about creating that warm cozy environment that encourages laughter, joy, and family. Even if your schedule is super hectic, dedicate a few
hours to transforming your space. The magic of the holiday season you remember when you were a kid, doesn’t have to end when you’re an adult. Be creative, frugal, and have fun. Your home is your sanctuary, and there’s no better place to enjoy this holiday season than right there at home with the people you love the most.
