If you don’t have time to load up your home’s exterior with twinkling lights or can’t be bothered with a shedding tree adorned with beautiful bulbs, there’s one easy way to instantly add holiday cheer to your abode: a winter wreath!
What do you think of these lovely blue themed wreaths? How about these wreaths with beautiful bursts of red?
A classic green wreath is always a good choice, too…
If you’re crafty, try stringing leftover bulbs together using some wire or hot-gluing bulbs to a bare wreath (click HERE for a tutorial for the wreath below from http://sharyncarlson.typepad.com):
Another fun idea is spray painting some holly to create a metallic, sparkly wreath:
Wreaths are a great way give a seasonal nod to a holiday and the best part is that they can be hung over a mantle, on a wall or on a door. Do you have a winter wreath you use every year or do you prefer to switch it up? Let me know in the comment section below. -Brian
When decorating your home for the holidays, it’s important to remember that the best way to create the prefect balance is to pair inexpensive decor (or re-purposed items from around your home) with a few expensive pieces.
I love this yarn-wrapped tree from West Elm (just went on sale!) to add a little drama to any room in your home. Next, set the stage by selecting a beautiful white and silver table linen with some texture and detail to it:
Then, to create a cohesive, chic, all-white look, simply pick and choose your favorite items from the collage below and scatter them throughout key rooms in your home. (Think: living room, bathroom and front entrance.) Keep in mind similar items you may already have at home for re-purposing, and of course, what your budget for this year’s holiday decorations will allow. Happy shopping!
