Alternatives to Traditional Wreaths

For some, Holiday decorations begin at the front door.  A wreath can say a lot about your style. While there are numerous greenery filled lovelies for the season, here are a few alternatives that might have your guests saying “Hello!”

If you are looking for an introductory DIY wreath, this may be it.  A simple foam form is covered in an everyday item from the Office Supply Store…. Thumbtacks!  I have done a similar project using decorative furniture tacks & must admit, while time consuming this project is easy.


I am a huge proponent of mass groupings of like items and apparently Jingle Bells are no exception to the rule.  This traditional item is transformed when grouped together.  Plus, you will always know when anyone is entering (or leaving) the house!

Full of fun & whimsy, this felt ball wreath adds a sense of warmth thanks to the comfy material.  The bright colors allow this wreath to be displayed throughout the fall & into the new year.

Clean, simple & neutral this wood bead wreath stands alone as a unique piece that can be dressed up or down depending on the ribbon used.

Twig & Thistle

An amazing DIY moment happened when Twig & Thistle created this stunner out of another everday item… Paper Cups.  This has officially been added to my to do list.

Whether it’s one of these alternatives or a traditional greenery filled option, don’t you think that your door deserves a little adornment?!?  I do.
