As the air becomes a little crisper and the nights a little longer, an evergreen wreath is the perfect way to transition from season to season. And better yet, it’s completely customizable! Maybe you’ve run out of time to make a handmade wreath piece by piece, or you just haven’t found a pre-made wreath that fits your style. Personalizing an evergreen wreath (pre-lit or not) saves you time and sparks conversation — whatever the occasion or holiday!
Here’s how you can customize your wreath with a few personal touches.
Make it merry and bright.
Wherever you choose to hang your wreath, inside or out — but under a covered porch, of course — the addition of battery-operated lights, such as Kirkland’s Sparklin’ Lights, will make your Christmas wreath sparkle all season long. Just tuck the battery pack behind your wreath, and you’ll never have to look at those unsightly cords again.
Dress it up.
Make a bow or simply loosely wrap your wreath with holiday ribbon for some extra pizazz. Ribbons come in a variety of styles and colors, so you’re sure to find exactly what you need to match your holiday theme or existing home décor.
Add the trimmings.
Floral stems, sprays, and picks spruce up your holiday theme and give your wreath a bit more bulk. Whether your style is whimsical, classic, or glitzy, the right trimmings can tell your holiday story. Consider adding fresh clippings of holiday flowers for an organic look or feathers if you’re feeling a little more glamourous.
Nothing is more personal than adding a monogram! Monogrammed plaques, ornaments, or hanging letters give your wreath an extra pop, so it’s sure to stand out from the other wreaths on the block. For an even bolder statement, begin with an initial monogram boxwood wreath, and customize it with the all of the embellishments above!
Now that your wreath is complete, it’s time to decide where to display it. Hang it on your front door to welcome friends and family. If it’s smaller, place it on your dining or console table as a centerpiece and conversation starter. Or, hang it above the mantel for friend and family to admire when they gather around the fireplace. Your options are endless! And no matter where you choose to hang your new wreath, remember what’s most important: you’ve fashioned a one-of-kind creation that embodies the heart of your home!
