Christmas wreaths are synonymous with the arrival of Christmas. They are an indispensable part of Christmas decorations. In fact, Christmas wreaths actually spell the arrival of holiday season. Come Christmas and you will notice front doors of almost every house in the neighborhood adorned with similar wreaths. The Christmas decorations are also more or less the same. Thus, it becomes difficult to tell one house from the other. However, if you opt to make your own Christmas wreath you can easily give your door an identity of its own.
Some Christmas Wreath Ideas
Christmas wreaths are easily available in the market, around Christmas. These wreaths are definitely beautiful and are a great option if you do not have time for your own Christmas crafts. However, you can add some embellishments here and there to make it look different from the other Christmas wreaths in the neighborhood. Given below are some ideas on how to make a Christmas wreath.
Chilly Hot Wreath
Did you know that a wreath can be made from red and green chillies, freshly picked from your garden? Well, a combination of red, green chillies on the base of shiny green leaves, makes an outstanding Christmas wreath, as it depicts the true Christmas colors.
Peppermint Candies Wreath
Red and white striped peppermint candies truly reflect the Christmas spirit. So, bring this sweet spirit to your home by making a yummy Christmas wreath made out of peppermint candies. You can make entire wreath out of candies or you can just add a bunch of candies, on the base of green garland. However, it is definitely not a good idea to hang this wreath on the front door. A good place to hang this wreath would be on the mirror or the wall behind the fireplace.
If you want your wreath to stay for years, go for a wreath that is made out of dried leaves and flowers. However, be careful while handling dried flowers and leaves, for they may get crumpled. Once, you arrange them on the string in the form of a wreath, you can also spray paint them with gold or silver color. This will make for one of the unique and everlasting Christmas wreaths.
Traditional Christmas Wreath
This includes creating a base of conifer leaves on the wreath string and then adding the details to it. Make sure to create a bulky base, so that your decoration stays firmly upon it. Then add nuts, berries and fruits on it to create an authentic Christmas wreath.
Spicy Christmas Wreath
If you wish to welcome your guests with a typical 'Christmassy' scent, then this one is for you. However, the supplies for this wreath may not come easy, as you may have to make a trip to specialized food shops. Cinnamon sticks, dried orange peels, lemon, cloves, all contribute to the heavenly aroma, which diffuses in the entire neighborhood.
Vintage Ornaments Wreath
Christmas ornaments keep adding every year, so instead of just stuffing them on the already stuffed Christmas tree, why not put them on the wreath! You can buy a usual Christmas wreath from the supermarket and add the embellishments that are in the form of vintage ornaments. This is a great way of displaying your collectibles.
Another interesting wreath idea is to create a wreath out of small gift boxes. Create a circular base for the wreath and arrange small gift boxes around its circumference.
There is always a room for creativity when it comes to wreath ideas for Christmas. You can always innovate the traditional Christmas decorations by giving your personal touches here and there. Merry Christmas and enjoy your holidays!
