What is the easiest way to know that the Christmas season is approaching us? No, it’s not the smell of gingerbread in the kitchen or the sight of snow on the ground—it’s when you start seeing wreaths on many doors across your neighborhood!
If you are looking to add a wreath to your door but having a hard time choosing a style, we’ve got you covered.
Here is a list of a-door-able wreaths to give you some Christmas Door Decorations.
Boho Christmas Wreath
“Boho” is synonymous with an artistic, free-spirited style, and while it’s most commonly used to describe clothing, it can be used to describe home decor as well. And, if Boho is your thing, you’re probably wondering whether or not there is a wreath option for you. Spoiler alert: there is. This cute wreath uses pinecones and fake snow to make an Instagram-ready installation.
Fresh Christmas Door Decoration
Just because it’s the winter season, it doesn’t mean that you can’t use fresh plants in your wreath-making. This fresh wreath uses real greenery which means that not only does it look great but it also smells great, too. You’ll probably have to make a new one every year, but it’s pretty easy to do so it shouldn’t take up too much of your time.
Giant wooden beads have grown in popularity as a craft item in recent years, and this isn’t surprising considering that they are incredibly versatile. If you can get your hands on some wooden beads, you can easily use them to make a wonderful wreath for Christmas time, such as the one seen here. You can either use real flowers and greenery or artificial ones—it’s your choice.
Eucalyptus and Blueberry
Mmm, can you think of a combination that is more pleasant than eucalyptus and blueberry? We can’t. This is the combination that makes up this unexpected winter-ready wreath. Perfect for when you are looking for something that is a bit less stereotypically “Christmassy”.
Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell…wreath! That’s the song that you’ll be singing when you make this wreath entirely from jingle bells. The best part about it is the festive sound that it will make every time that you close or open your door.
If you’re a big embroidery fan, you’ll be happy to know that you can use your skills to make a beautiful wreath for your door. This example shows how you can use a plaid background and cursive to make a cute Christmas-themed embroidery, but you can of course use any pattern that you’d like.
Plaid can be a lovely way to break up the monotony of classic Christmas colors. Buffalo plaid is a special type of plaid pattern that has literally been in style since the 1800s—so it’s a good bet that it will still be in style long enough for you to use this wreath for many years to come.
Pretty in Pink
Not everything has to be green and red for Christmas time. Sometimes, the best results can happen when you think outside of the box and rely on an unexpected color palette. This is especially true if you live in a warm climate where pastel colors just go better with the surrounding landscape. Check out this beautiful Christmas/winter wreath that is made from a pink and white color scheme.
Sometimes the most expressive wreaths are the ones that come with words. But sometimes it can be hard to think of anything other than “Merry Christmas”, and that’s a bit boring if we’re being honest with ourselves. “NOEL” is another word that is associated with Christmas, and it looks beautiful on a wreath as seen here.
Do you remember those tiny Christmas village set-ups that our grandparents used to have when we were kids? It was always so fun to look at the little storefronts and figurines and make up a rich imaginative life for them. If you still have those mini Christmas houses sitting around, you can use them in a wreath as seen here. A super creative idea!
While Velvet Rhinestone
There’s nothing wrong with wanting a little bit of bling in your life. If you are looking for a little bit of sparkle and shine in your Christmas wreath, you’re going to want to take a look at this particular wreath that is all velvet and rhinestone. It’s shimmery, wintery, and beautiful!
Mesh is a versatile crafting material that can be found at most dollar stores. It is easy to work with and perfectly suited for wreaths! You can see proof of that with this Christmas tree-shaped mesh wreath that is completely DIY. Who says that Christmas door wreaths have to be circular?
Vintage Christmas Ornament
If you were alive in the 80s and 90s, you are probably very familiar with all of those super shiny bulbs that everybody used to have on their tree. If you were a kid, you probably remember picking them up and marveling at how you could see your reflection in them like a mirror. These bulbs have since gone out of style, but you can still make good use of them in your crafting projects. Take this wreath for example, which is made from these vintage old-school bulbs!
Red berries are a symbol of Christmas in most areas across the world. They also happen to make a beautiful wreath material! You can make a wreath entirely out of fake (or authentic) berries by following the directions that are laid out here. This wreath is 100% waterproof which means that it can brave the harsh elements that winter usually brings along with it.
Purple Winter Wreath
Here is another Christmas wreath that uses unconventional colors. This wreath uses beautiful hues of deep purple to create a holiday wreath that sticks out from all of the rest. Plus, another advantage of using a wreath that isn’t too “Christmasy” is that you can keep it up past Christmas without getting any judgment from your neighbors.
Sometimes the best wreaths are the ones that are made from unexpected materials, like felt. This felt wreath is quite minimalist in its design, which might mean that it’s great for you if you’re not a fan of all of the big pomp and circumstance that often comes along with Christmas. Of course, you can adapt it to fit your own tastes if you’re looking for something a bit more flashy.
This wreath made of artificial navy magnolia is an elegant way to celebrate the Christmas season. It especially looks great on gray, yellow, or white doors.
Ski Door Wreath
We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: not every wreath has to be circular. Sometimes, the best wreaths come in unexpected shapes and sizes. You can make a very cute Christmas wreath out of “skis”, as seen here. It’s perfect farmhouse chic.
Pine and Pinecone
Winter is the season when a lot of nature takes a rest, but there are still some plants that stick around. One of them, of course, is pine cones. You can make a wonderful pine cone wreath by following the example that is found here. Looks like something from out of a catalog.
Do you like yarn and crafting? Well, here is how you can make your very own Christmas wreath from chunky yarn. This looks great, but it’s best to only use it if your door sits under a covered porch because it can otherwise get rather soggy in inclement weather.
Which of the above wreaths do you find the most inspiring? No matter which wreath you choose, we hope that it brings you a healthy dose of Christmas cheer this holiday season.
