Every year I decorate our traditional colonial home by hanging wreaths on all the windows. I love the simplicity and the charm they add. I do find myself navigating towards less traditional evergreen wreaths and thought it would be fun to share some great ideas.
This wreath made of chili pepper in the shape of a tree is a variation. Instead of always going round think of trees and different shapes.
Glass balls– the kind you can decorate your tree with, always make for a fun and lasting wreath. You can make this in any color scheme to coordinate with your house color or room decor. I have seen these made on a smaller scale to be hung inside on the window or above a mantle. This non-traditional wreath with all the colors is such an eye grabber!
Going a little more subtle with the glass balls, you can keep to one color and different sizes. It adds “bling” to a traditional wreath made out of the greenery.
Fruit is always a simple way to add color and interest to a wreath. Feathers can also add an organic touch too. This wreath can carry through a few seasons. Hang in the fall and it is appropriate through the winter.
Or try using objects similar to this one. The skate filled with greens and adding red plaid ribbon give it a festive feeling. Think of using various objects and adding ribbons and other flora to create an unusual wreath.
Use whimsy in your holiday and seasonal decorating. Use items you have in you already own. Pinterest is a great source for gaining ideas that are unique. I would love to see and hear what type of wreaths you decorate with for the holidays! Cheers
