54 Festive Christmas Wreaths
Welcome your guests with these ideas for festive Christmas wreaths.
A bold shade of red instantly brings Christmas cheer to any front door. This simply stated version adds the perfect festive touch.
Why choose just one? The combination of magnolia leaves and greenery create a festive front door display.
An ornament wreath is a shiny way to welcome guests. Choose colors that best complement your front door.
Select a wreath that pops. Here, a white berry wreath creates a beautiful contrast against darker paint colors.
Easily add a pop of color to a classic magnolia wreath with your favorite Christmas ribbon.
Dress up a natural evergreen wreath for festive pizzazz. A pretty bow and coordinating ornaments are the perfect pairing.
Customize your wreath based on what you have in your own backyard. Pinecones, berries, and pine needles come together to create a personal, seasonal display.
Seasonal flowers create an elegant greeting for guests. Choose flowers that coordinate with the color scheme of your home.
Start with cypress clippings stuffed into a chicken wire wreath form. Then cut the wreath in half with wire clippers to place over the deer's head. Wire the wreath back together, and cover the cut area with a bow. Finish the look with ball ornaments strung from the antlers.
Give the hanging wreath a break, and incorporate one into your table setting. Here, we spruced up a boxwood wreath with succulents, eucalyptus sprigs, and gold ribbon and placed a grouping of mismatched green candles in the center. If guests are coming, add a few fresh white tulips to the wreath with florist water picks and light the candles. Because this is a low arrangement, dinner-party conversations will flow easily all night.
Using three different kinds of moss from a crafts store and some florist U-pins, attach the moss to a florist foam or plastic foam wreath form. Vary the mosses while pinning for an authentic garden-like feel. At the bottom, secure a spray of fresh berries and pine from the yard. Then place a homemade bow off-center for a more casual appearance.
For a cheery retro look, start with a grapevine wreath (we painted ours white) and hot-glue classic round Christmas ornaments in a single color but different shades and sizes. When gluing, adhere the balls to both the wreath and one another for extra hold. Although this wreath makes a big statement, it's lightweight enough to be hung from a stick-on hook.
This presentation elevates premade grocery-store wreaths. They hang from fishing line that runs over the top of the door. Then, striped ribbon trails the fishing line. This allows the wreaths to move a bit, giving them a striking, free-hanging look. Sprays of fresh bay leaves, seeded eucalyptus, and large gray berzillia berries add tone-on-tone interest and texture.
Every home needs a touch of red and green during the holidays. This year, we freshened the typical motif with a shapely wreath made from real Granny Smith apples wired to a florist foam wreath form with florist picks. Red hypericum berries and bay leaves fill out the rest of the wreath. The apples do make this wreath weighty, so hang it from a sturdy nail.
Magnolia wreaths have a sophisticated, Southern look, and they don’t shed messy needles like pine versions. Try hanging your wreath with strips of fabric using elsewhere in your room, or with pretty grosgrain ribbon.
To dislay as a coffee table piece, add adhesive-backed felt pads to the bottom of a round mirror that is slightly larger than your wreath. Place wreath on top of mirror. Add glass votives.
This sweet living succulent wreath is eye candy indeed. Display it as a centerpiece, tie it to the back of a chair, or hang it on an interior wall. Mix and match your favorite succulents for great texture. With regular watering and bright light, it can live for years.
Soothing hues and luscious textures set the tone for an elegant holiday. Chartreuse reindeer moss brightens this wreath. Scout out shady corners of your garden for lush mats of moss. Supplement with store-bought moss as needed.
This tree made of fresh greenery offers an alternative to the traditional round wreath without sacrificing fragrance. To shape your tree, trim the foliage using clippers.
Long, slender pinecones, such as those of a white pine, work best for this new take on a Southern holiday classic—the pinecone wreath. Finish with a narrow ribbon layered on top of a wider ribbon.
Warm up an entry with earthy terra-cotta rooting pots. Use weathered pots from your own collection, or age new ones using our technique. Hide the wreath hanger with a ribbon, and then add a bow.
