Looking for easy wreath decorating ideas? Find out five easy ways to decorate one affordable Christmas wreath. Save on storage and cost with these versatile, easy Christmas wreath ideas!
I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is later this week! The Christmas season is practically upon us, and I’ve been thinking a lot about economizing – both in space and cost – as I try to create a new look for the holidays in my home this year.
So to start, I pulled out one of my super affordable wreaths. It probably cost $5.99 several years ago, and it is the most basic wire frame with cheap fake greenery attached. It’s fine, but as a stand alone, it’s a little flat.
But it doesn’t have to stay that way! 😉
How to decorate a basic Christmas wreath:
And for those of you who prefer to see things written down…
Affordable, easy Christmas wreath decorating ideas:
1. “the natural”
Use fresh greens (clipped from your yard or collected wherever Christmas trees are sold). Insert into the wreath at an angle in a circular fashion and secure with floral wire.
tip: use a spray bottle to mist the fresh greens every 2-3 days
2. “the rustic”
Stuff pine cones into the greenery of the wreath.
tip: if hanging wreath in a high traffic area, secure pine cones with floral wire
3. “the glamorous”
Hang round ornaments on the wreath; secure by bending the hook into the frame.
tip: use a few ornaments from your tree each year to create a coordinated look no matter what tree style you choose
4. “the fashionable”
Tie a scarf around the bottom of the wreath. Hide the not behind the wreath and allow the ends to hang down.
tip: if hanging outside, check your local thrift store or use a fabric scrap (spare your designers scarves)
5. “the skinny”
Smoosh (technical term 😉 ) one side of the wreath and wrap a ribbon around it several times. Secure with a bow and leave a long portion hanging.
tip: use a stiff ribbon capable of holding its shape and the wreath in place
Now be sure to pin it for next year so you can change up your look!
