Christmas wreath making is one of the most traditional forms of festive decoration and has been around since the 16th century. Growing in popularity each year, you can find them just about anywhere. There are so many different types too, from Christmas wreath making kits, artificial door wreaths and a new take on the traditional: bauble wreaths.
We love to see them all taking pride of place, hanging from one of our front doors.
In light of the approaching holiday season, we have compiled 10 of our favourite Christmas wreaths, from businesses big and small.
Artificial Door Wreaths
Artificial wreaths are durable and long lasting. These guys can take a fall off the door without too much complaining. You can hang your wreath and forget about it.
There is also so much choice with artificial wreaths; glitter, feathers, statement matte black leaves - the possibilities are endless! Artificial wreaths will also stand the test of time, so invest in a good quality, beautiful wreath and you will be able to show it off year after year. The downside of an artificial wreath? That depends on how much the smell of Christmas matters to you…
Nothing says Christmas more than frosted leaves, red berries and fairy lights. We absolutely adore this traditional little light up number from Marks and Spencer, the perfect addition to any front door. The fairy light batteries pack is cleverly hidden behind the life-like eucalyptus so if you are looking for a Christmas door wreath with lights, this is the perfect choice.
A traditional style wreath with a modern twist. We love the exposed twigs and pearly Christmas berries. Perfect for homes that have modern décor but want to keep Christmas traditional. The gentle frosting of snow gives the perfect festive feel. What makes the Mirabella Décor so special is that all wreaths are hand made to order, so each one will be individual to you.
Pink finishes on front doors have been a huge trend this year which is why we love this everlasting wreath from Not On The Highstreet. Glitter galore, this wreath is really girly and a pink lover’s dream. Pair with dark black front doors or couple with a snow-white front door, for that extra touch of magic.
One for the kids – how much fun is this bauble wreath from John Lewis? ’Designed to make you smile’, this bauble door wreath is inspired by Pop Art and other modern art movements. Made of bells, it will jingle every time you open or close your door. This wreath couldn’t be any further from the traditional, but we think it injects an element of fun and creativity to your Christmas decor.
The luxury one, for those with bigger budgets or those wanting to splurge. Full of texture and volume, this this green and berry door wreath is a truly luxurious piece and will add splendour and class when welcoming guests to your home.
There is no denying the beauty of a real wreath with the fresh pine scent and the glossy leaves. These wreaths are often a little more expensive as they are handmade by florists. However, this means you have more ability to personalise your colours and composition.
Real wreaths are also much friendlier to our environment, simply remove any ribbon and accessories before putting in the compost bin or taking to a tree recycling center.
Fresh Christmas wreaths do require more maintenance than an artificial ones, and will need to be sprayed with a fine mist of water to keep them green and luscious throughout the Christmas season.
