I’ve put my own stamp on my wreaths of Christmas past …
I love using signs on wreaths (like I did on my Halloween wreath here).
This galvanized Merry Christmas sign adds the perfect amount of farmhouse flair to any wreath. Remove the sign after Christmas and keep the wreath up all winter long.
This round tray I found at the thrift store was made to nestle inside this wreath.
Marquee lights are all the rage and it’s fun to add one to a wreath to give it even more glow.
Let the wreath be the frame for your favorite piece of art.
An old lantern adds a pop of color to a plain boxwood wreath.
Look for pieces of architectural salvage like these two wooden finials that came off of an old house.
When in doubt, add ornaments!
This succulent wreath doesn’t need much to jazz it up so I simply wrapped a colorful garland around it.
