If you are like us who love and always look forward to, the Christmas season, you’re probably familiar with a few decorating traditions. The ones we can look forward to year after year. The Christmas tree, the twinkling lights, the decorated lawns, and yes, an evergreen decorating standard: the Christmas wreath.
Festive rings of fresh greenery have been hung on doors as far back as Ancient Rome. Of course, they initially were used to indicate a victory of some sort of a family’s status. Christmas soon adopted these radiant circles of pine, birch, and other natural materials to signify the advent of the coming holiday. In fact, the popularity of hanging wreaths on front doors has become so prevalent, this image itself is iconic. You can see it everywhere, from candles and gift bags to Christmas cards and fine art. But did you know there are many possibilities available when it comes to decorating with wreaths?
Keep It Outside for the Entire Neighborhood to Enjoy
Of course, if you want to keep your Christmas wreath on the front door, you should definitely do that. Christmas decorations can lift spirits and illicit joy no matter where they are displayed. And the front door is still a great location to show it off. For other options, there are places that will work just as effectively as alternatives, or in addition to.
Exterior windows provide a great showcase for decorative wreaths, especially if you want to add several of them to your decorating mix. You can also display a wreath right on your house, placing it on the front or one of the sides. This can be accomplished with ease regardless of the kind of house you own. It would probably only take a few everyday household supplies and tools. Do you have a patio, an outdoor shed or a fence around your yard? These are also great choices for adding a festive touch to your outdoor area, and for giving your entire property a festive Christmas vibe.
Bring It Inside to Enhance Each Room with Holiday Warmth
When it comes to enhancing the inside of your holiday home, there is so much creative freedom when you use wreaths. From highly trafficked areas of your home like the foyer, the kitchen, and the living room, to smaller spaces like hallways, bedrooms, bathrooms, and or studies, you can bring beauty, artistry, and most importantly, a touch of Christmas, to most any space, just by hanging a wreath there.
And don’t stop at just a single wreath. You can use multiple versions of the same wreath or mix it up a bit by display Christmas wreaths endowed with the same theme or style all over your home. The possibilities really are endless. Best of all, your family will be able to enjoy the fruits of your “Christmas labors” all season long. Thanks for reading.
