Christmas is only 41 days away! How did this year go by so fast? It seems like just yesterday I was packing up all our ornaments and eating the last of the Christmas cookies.
This weekend, I was flipping through radio stations and found the Christmas station playing “Jingle Bell Rock”. It really started to get me in the mood for the holidays. It may be too early for us to start decorating, but I’m ready to start brainstorming new ideas!
I was going through my Holiday Ideas Pinterest board for some inspiration, when I noticed a trend – I really like Christmas wreaths. I think they were in every other pin I’d posted.
I loved the wreaths I put up on in our dining room windows for our Outdoor Christmas Decor 2011. I’ll be digging them out again for this year.
I will probably reuse the Christmas wreath I had on the front door too, but maybe with a few new touches.
Rather than going with a traditional wreath form, you could also change things up with a star shape. They look great hanging about these twin beds. My sister and I would have loved this in our bedroom when we were little. We used to have our own Christmas tree in our bedroom for decorations (complete with wrapped “gifts” underneath for our favourite teddy bears).
In a grand house like this one, you need a grand Christmas statement – like brightly lit garlands over each archway, leading right to a big beautiful Christmas tree.
This rustic wooden sign on a mixed greens wreath, would look great hanging from a barn door.
Aged cedar shingles with gorgeous yet simple laurel leaf wreaths. The garland swathed picket fence is a lovely touch.
The warmth and colour in this living room is so inviting for a Christmas morning get-together with family. The dramatic wooden shutters are arched windows look perfect with the festive wreath.
I’m used to living in an area where we’re often lucky enough to have a White Christmas, but that isn’t the case everywhere. This cute cottage reminded me that even warm weather homes can be festive for the holidays.
Large lush magnolia leaf wreaths make a big statement on these french doors. The awning over the doorway is a nice touch.
The wreaths, combined with the 1.5 storey garland and twinkle lights in the hedge, makes with a beautifully inviting entrance way.
How can you not dream of sugar plums in a festive bedroom like this? The fresh evergreen wreath would make it smell amazing.
I’ve always had a soft spot for old homes with beautiful architectural details, but I especially love them all decked out for the holidays.
As much as I love a traditional evergreen wreath, this pine cone one looks fun and woodsy too – especially up against a bright white door.
For something a little more modern, I’d go with this yarn and felt argyle pattern.
