Christmas wreaths are one of the most decorative pieces in most homes, beside the Christmas tree of course. When you decide that you want a Christmas wreath for your home there are just a few ways to help you choose.
How to decide which Christmas wreath to display in your home?
What type of Christmas wreath?
First things first, you need to decide which type of Christmas wreath you want. Christmas wreaths are made many different ways. There is always a large assortment to choose from.
- Authentic (those made from real trees)
- Indoor and outdoor variations
Where to display your Christmas wreath
Next, you need to decide where in your home are you going to display the Christmas wreath?
Some of the most popular places to put the Christmas wreath:
- Front door
- Above the mantle
- Windows (Recommended if you have a large window in the front of your home)
- Hallways (Recommended if you have a larger hallway)
When choosing a Christmas wreath for your front door, you want it to be large enough to be seen, but not enormous. A Christmas wreath like any other decoration should show your personal style, or maybe fit into a theme (i.e. If your Christmas tree is decorated in gold and red, your Christmas wreath could be gold and red.)If you chose to place your Christmas wreath in any other location, pick a size that fits your home.
Stick to the same colour scheme as your decorations
Also, you should remember when shopping for your Christmas wreath, take a look at your whole Christmas scene. Take into account your tree; if your tree is artificial try artificial wreaths. Try to stick to the same colour scheme as your decorations, and lights.
Other things to pay attention to include your nativity set, and even your advent wreaths. You should try to keep everything uniform. If you’re a spur of the moment Christmas decorator, who has multiple themes then you have a lot of options.
Make your own Christmas wreath
You can make your own Christmas wreath, or maybe even add your own accents to a pre-made one. Fun things for kids to add would be other craft items, Christmas candy, or cookies. Christmas wreaths also make great Christmas gifts for loved ones.
So get out there and start shopping, and don’t forget to have fun and a very Merry Christmas!
