With the holidays quickly approaching, Christmas decorating is upon us. If the thought of decorating makes you nervous and break out in a cold sweat, I have the solution for you! The wreath. It’s the perfect stand-alone décor and least stressful way to spruce up (pun intended) for the holidays. If you’re an old pro with the Christmas decorations, I have some fresh ideas for you as well to branch out (last pun, I promise) and add life to your existing pieces.
Try looping a wreath over mirrors and art. Don’t worry about covering up the piece, the holidays are all about cozy textural layers. Make sure to use a pretty ribbon to add that extra hit of detail and color.
Hang multiple wreaths to get a gallery wall effect. Try combining different sizes and textures to create an organic display. This is a perfect trick if you have an abundance of wreaths and a large empty wall. Consider working a wreath into your already existing gallery wall.
Try this trick for your next holiday party. Put a wreath on the front of your console, side table, or leaned on the top of your bar cart.
Weave a garland into your chandelier to create a beautiful wreath suspended above your table. It’s instant ambiance for your next dinner party.
Nestle a wreath on a stand next to your fireplace or stand it on a console to add height to a Christmas display.
Consider a different shaped wreath, a heart or square, to add an unexpected element. Switch out your round wreath for a swag. There’s something irresistibly drapey about this look.
One last note, if you always go with a traditional evergreen wreath, look for ways to amp up the texture. Incorporate punchy citrus fruit or wind in some twiggy branches. Opt for a bay leaf or a boxwood wreath for a more manicured looking wreath.
