Christmas is the time that all wreath forms look forward to all year. For most of the year, they sit silently in the wreath form aisle. Brushing dust from each others shoulders. Talking about the wreaths that have gone before them. Wishing they had been bulk ordered by Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. More of them are picked up during Thanksgiving. But with baited breath they wait for Black Friday. And then boom! Just like that. Every single wreath form has a home. They’re wrapped, glued, stuck, and tied more than an America’s Top Model, well, model. But each of them is created to know that beauty comes at a price. And finally. Finally. They’re hung on doors, windows, chairs, and mirrors. Silently and stoically doing their job. Making your home feel like Santa could drop in at any moment.
Well. Who knew wreaths had such an active life? I didn’t. So here’s a collection of my favorite wreaths for the holiday season. Above and to the left you’ll find the cutest pink ruffled wreath, created by Kelly Hicks of Kelly Hicks Design, wrapped in the sheerest of fabrics. And perfect for a romantic, and pink, holiday season. On the right, a wreath created by Two Junk Chix and filled with yarn balls, painted gumballs from an oak tree, silver ornaments, snowflakes and more all combined to create the most lovely of gray, white, brown, and ivory themed wreaths. Perfect for a natural, handmade Christmas.
I really, really, really, really, really, really love all natural wreaths. While this rosemary-type wreath from Make It and Love It isn’t natural (she uses silk flowers), it is something you could easily create with rosemary or bay leaves.
This modern Christmas style of this yarn ball and red Christmas ornament wreath, created by A Pretty Life in the Suburbs, was inspired by Starbucks! If you go pick up a peppermint latte, you’ll see this style of decor all over the joint.
And this beige ruffle wreath created by Dear Lillie? It takes me straight back to junior high. With my, straight out of the 90′s, burgundy and beige bedding completely with giant ruffles and even giant-er shams. Ah, nostalgia.
Last, but not least, this raffia wreath, created by Nesting Place, is a cheaper and much version of a Martha Stewart wreath. It would be easy to re-create in green, silver, white or red for your holiday decor. Que bonita!
