I have been looking at Christmas wreaths on Pinterest for some time, trying to put together an idea for the perfect wreath. There are so many gorgeous wreaths and great ideas that I tend to get overwhelmed and just want to do them all. If I let myself, I could spend a ton of money on embellishments and decorations.
However, my advice is to get a basic wreath that you can change up. All of these items are removable, so when I decide to go with a different theme later down the road, I can change it up again.
This year I wanted to coordinate with my tree and hang it in the living room next to the tree. Since I have an antler theme going, the resin deer head was the perfect find. It was on sale last year and after Christmas, I intend to keep him out and maybe hang him in a different location. I painted his antlers with gold metallic paint that I have used before. (See this gold paint on my reinvented TV cabinet here.)
I bought this basic grapevine wreath many years ago and I have changed it’s look several times. I put this one together with decorations I already had. The only thing I really added were some berry picks I had in my stash of decor that I wasn’t using. There are red, gold, and silver berries. I tied a bow from the same ribbon I used on the top of the tree and attached it with some wire.
I say keep it simple, at least on the wreath. Go all out on everything else. (See the rest of my Christmas Decorations here.)
