CHRISTMAS WREATHS

Wreaths have always been a part of my Christmas decor. I love wreaths. It's often hard to decide which kind of wreath to have every year.

This is a wreath I made. It's pretty traditional. With pine as the base, berries, ribbons, apples and poinsettias. The traditional red and green colors.

I do love the ribbon I used. It's a red velvet with Merry Christmas written in gold.

So traditional it was for me this year. But below are some wonderful wreaths I found that I may copy for next year wreath.

This darling vintage button wreath in red and white would be super easy to make. Just get that glue gun out and have at it.


A gum drop wreath would be perfect for a "Visions of Sugar Plum" Christmas theme.



I just adore this one made out of vintage Santas.


A wreath made of ribbons would be a thrift way to change your look and not spend an arm and a leg. Just save your ribbon from this years gift.


Or how about this beautiful wreath that is dripping with vintage rhinestone jewelry!



An old tinsel wreath would be cute with my other vintage decorations.



I just love, love, love this wreath and wish I could make one like it. Sadly, I don't have all these pretty vintage ornaments. So I'll have to just dream about this one.

What about you? What kind of a wreath do you put up? Is it the same one every year or do you make/buy new ones?

I can't believe Christmas is almost here already!

I'm excited about having several of you fellow bloggers signing up to join in the diet and exercise program in Jan. Together we can do it!


Maybe we should have a button on our blog so others can see it and join us if they like. What do you think? Would you post a button on your side bar if I made one?

I like more than one of those, so I'd have to have one for every door in the house. The rhinestone one is over the moon.

Oh my, can you imagine what it would cost to make that gorgeous rhinestone wreath??? I'd love to do it, but would hate to use up a life time's stash of jewels!!
