Decorating with Christmas Wreaths
During the Christmas season you often see wreaths gracing the front door of beautifully decorated homes. A Christmas wreath on the front door is a warm and joyous way of saying “welcome to our home”. Christmas wreaths also look beautiful when used throughout the inside of your home; it's a simple and elegant way to decorate any room for Christmas. Here are other ways to use Christmas Wreaths:
Wreath Table Centrepieces
Use your favourite wreath as the base of a centrepiece for your Christmas table. Fill the inside with a beautful candle, or a few smaller ones at different heights to set a warm and inviting atmosphere. For a more glamourous look, place a pile of baubles in the centre of the wreath, not only does this look extremely festive, but you can also co-ordinate the baubles with the colour scheme or theme of your table. Another great idea is to fill the inside of the wreath with fruits, nuts and holiday greens - not only does this add a touch of rustic and traditional charm to your Christmas table, but it also serves as a snack bowl!
An alternative to a wreath hanger is a wreath stand. You can place the stand on the floor or on a table. Some are even height adjustable.
Plaques with Wreaths
Add a plaque to tell a Christmas message.
Hang a Wreath with Ribbon
Use a beautiful ribbon to hang a wreath from curtain rods, wall hooks or over the back of chairs at your Christmas table.
Decorating Stairwells with Wreaths
If your home has a staircase with a railing, it is a wonderful way to incorporate the Christmas theme throughout your home. Attach a wreath at intervals up the stairs, if you like you can link them together with beautiful Christmas ribbons.
