Every year, the holiday gives us an excuse to come up with new and festive holiday décor for our home. Sure, the traditional greenery is fine, but taking a twist on holiday favorites makes your home memorable each year. Unique holiday wreaths have come a long way from the evergreen and red bow staple, and in home décor trends, your imagination is the limit! From creative shapes, and interesting materials, to everyday household items, take a look at these fun and unique holiday wreaths.
- Nontraditional shapes: Circular wreaths are the most well known shape for wreaths, but they can come in any shape. The wreath definition states that it’s “a twisted band or ring of leaves, flowers, etc…” Dress up your kid’s doors with wreaths shaped liked the alphabet, stars, or square wreaths. The uniqueness comes in your twist on a holiday tradition. Instead of using all one shape of material, mix and match different size ornaments, leaves, and even your kid’s holiday crafts from school!
- Food inspired wreaths: Why not include your favorite holiday treat in the form of a wreath? Candy, marshmallows, candied fruit, and berries all make for a beautiful backdrop for unique holiday wreaths. Try using varying sizes, and colors in the same arrangement to add visual interest and depth. If you want to create a semi-homemade wreath, visit your local craft store that already has wood, moss, or a natural covering. Use a hot glue gun and add on your favorite treats. For candy and food additions spray your finished wreath with a craft food preserver to keep for years and years.
- Everyday household materials: Believe it or not, the newspaper you just put in the recycle bin could make for a great wreath! Do you keep holiday cards from year to year? This year, cut them into decorative shapes like leaves or stars and create an eco-friendly wreath. Coffee filters, fabric swatches, rope, and sea shells make for beautiful wreaths. Look around your home for buttons, knick knacks and materials that look great in collections. If you enjoy scrapbooking, consider using photographs and scrapbooking materials to give personality and uniqueness to your wreath. You’d be surprised how your front door or fireplace will look when they’re adorned with your unique holiday wreath addition.
Make your home festive this season with creative holiday décor that will inspire you, and entertain your guests. Holiday wreaths are a wonderful way to capture your family’s year, events, or even favorite activities all in a unique holiday wreath. Consider making a tradition of making a new wreath every year, or start collecting items throughout the year, just for your holiday wreaths. However you choose to decorate this year, bring in a twist of a traditional favorite, and embrace your home’s uniqueness.
