Sneak Peek at my Christmas Wreath

I am getting a lot of mileage out of my white base wreath I bought at Target several months ago. With it I’ve been able to make a Magnolia Leaf Wreath for the fall.


I made a Feather Wreath for Thanksgiving.


Now it was time to give the wreath an injection of Christmas spirit. I removed the feathers, but left the green nuts on it. I had a green fabric leaf wreath that I made out of some floral filler stalks. All I did was twist 4 of the stalks into a circle shape and secure with a few pieces of floral wire.


I set my white base wreath inside the green leaf circle.


To secure the two together, 1) I fed some of the base wreath twigs under the leaf wreath and 2) twisted them over to hug the green leaf wreath.


That couldn’t be any easier! No glue, no mess.

I compared two different ribbons next to my wreath and ultimately chose the black and white one.


Tied a pretty bow and stood back to admire.


Hmmm, I like it, but it just wasn’t feeling Christmasy enough, so I quickly tucked some red floral sprigs with teeny bells on them into the wreath and gently curved them to match the shape of the wreath.

Now that is more like it!
In less than 10 minutes I have my Christmas wreath! This base wreath has been the best $10 I’ve spent all year!

I’m going to try to use this wreath all year and will be sure to share the transformations with you.

    I do the same thing with a boxwood (I think) wreath I got a few years ago and I just change out the floral elements. It has help up really well and I always love the new look it gets from season to season. I usually use the same red flowers for Fall & Winter but you have inspired me to do something a little different to it now for the Christmas season. Thanks!

    Brittany, I love the idea of having one base wreath you can alter with the seasons and holidays. I decided to do a similar thing with a grapevine wreath my MIL gave me a few months ago. I adorned it with fauxliage for fall (grapevine, like your wreath, is perfect for temporarily inserting foliage in) and used an autumnal-colored ribbon to hang it for extra pizazz. I transformed it into a Christmas wreath by removing the fall decorations and then added holly leaves and berries. I rehung it using upholstery webbing. It takes 10 minutes to arrange the foliage and it's great not to have to keep up with multiple wreaths!

    That is so gorgeous!!! You are a genius!

    And I love a good bargain – can't believe you've used that wreath that many times!
