5 Fantastic Non-Traditional Christmas Wreaths To Make
Christmas wreaths instantly bring a festive mood. These versatile Christmas decorations can be used as adornment on doors, along banisters and hallways, and even as table centerpieces.
With so many designs available for artificial Christmas wreaths, it can be difficult to just pick one for your home. Here are some fantastic ideas that you can do to spruce up your holiday décor:
Acorns are everywhere this time of the year. Make the most of Nature’s bountiful offerings by gathering a basketful of acorns and making a wreath out of them. Rinse the acorns and bake them for 15 minutes. Use hot glue to attach them to a store-bought wreath base. Let the glue dry and spray paint your acorn wreath with festive holiday colors. For a bold dash of color, tie a bow at the bottom or wrap a thick, festive ribbon around it.
For a woodland theme that’s beautiful and easy to do, a grapevine wreath is the perfect Christmas décor. This simple, rustic adornment can be crafted by gathering up some dried up grapevines from a local vineyard (if you’re lucky enough to live near one) or by purchasing them from a nursery or craft store. Bunch them up thickly since they tend to shrink as they dry some more, and adorn them with vibrant red berries and ribbons. Simple yet elegant!
Ball Ornaments Wreath
Christmas ornaments don’t have to be placed on Christmas trees only. Attach glass Christmas tree ornaments to a wreath using a floral wire and intersperse them with some greenery. With its vibrant hues, this ball ornaments wreath is bound to make a statement on your front door.
Candy Cane Wreath
Candy canes are sweet treats welcome in any home during the holidays. To make your festivities even sweeter, why not make a wreath out of your favorite confection? Cut out a thick Styrofoam into a circle to make it the base of the wreath. Cover it with felt paper fastened all the way to the back with pins. Spray paint candy canes and other hard Christmas candies with polymer and let them dry. When ready, hot glue the candies onto the wreath base. Finish off with a cute bow on top.
Rosemary enhances the flavor of food. You can also use this fragrant herb to decorate your front door and other areas in your home by turning sprigs of rosemary into a wreath. Attach bundles of rosemary onto a double-ring wire form by using floral wire. Intersperse with berries or small flowers and fasten a bow on top.
