A Christmas wreath is the easiest way to decorate your door for Christmas. Pre-decorated wreaths are readily available in stores but you can also do it yourself. Below are some ideas for a DIY wreath.
- Mixed Greens are usually made of pine, grapevine, and various leaves combined with pinecones, assorted seasonal flowers and fruits. To create a traditional fruit-and-greenery wreath, add several dried pomegranates.
- Attach Christmas cards, gift cards or photos to create a personalized wreath. You may also use old neckties, handkerchiefs or scarves.
- Try making a Sugar-Coated-Fruit Wreath made of assorted artificial fruits such as pears, oranges, lemons and apples.
Red and Green Ornaments
Red-and-green is a classic Christmas combination and you can achieve that look by simply adding red and green ornaments to your front door. You may use a huge red bow, a Santa figurine or cranberries as accents to a green wreath.
Grapevine, twigs, and pinecones may be turned into wintry Christmas pieces by sprinkling faux snowflakes. You can also spray white paint on the ornaments to add a snowy effect. If you do not have spray paint, you can lightly dust them with Epsom salt or white and silver glitter.
