Rethinking Wreaths

I love sprucing up the house for Christmas, but sometimes its difficult to find contemporary holiday decor that reflects our clean, minimalist style. This year I’ve had my eyes peeled for a festive new wreath…something simple, yet slightly funky that will coordinate with the white and silver color scheme we already have going on. Oh, and also no fake greenery or silk flowers allowed (which pretty much rules out anything you might buy off the shelf at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby).

I’m afraid I may be forced to fire up the hot glue gun and get crafty┬áin order to see my envisioned Christmas wreath come true. Fortunately, there is no shortage of gorgeous, DIY wreath-making inspiration on the interweb…..

Modern Christmas Wreaths

1. Fur Wreath 2. Cushion Moss Wreath 3. Yarn Wreath with Crochet Flowers
4. Snowball Wreath 5. Ornament Wreath 6. Tinsel Garland Wreath
7. Eucalyptus Wreath 8. Coffee Filter Wreath 9. Bubble Wreath
10. Paper Flower Wreath 11. Twig Wreath 12. PVC Pipe Wreath

Apparently you can make a wreath out of almost anything….fur, moss, yarn, ornaments, coffee filters, twigs, paper, pipe. The possibilities are endless….and the results so stunning that I may decide to leave my imagined wreath up long after the other Christmas decorations are packed away.

    @Terri Thames: I found one of Brenda’s wreaths in the attic and used that instead of making a new one. The birds seemed to like it, too….they built a nest in the wreath on the front door!
