| | | | | |

If you need some Christmas wreath inspiration here are 12 of the most unique ideas for a holiday wreath!

OK – let’s get this party started, y’all.  The Christmas party, that is.  I know that many of you are already in full Christmas decorating swing.  I just got mine started last weekend and I have to say that this is the first time in my whole life that I’ve ever put out Christmas decor before Thanksgiving.  My family thinks I’m nuts.   😛

I’d like to do something a little different on my front door this holiday.  I’ve been using the same glittery wreath for a long time, but I’m looking to tone down the glitz a little this year.  Here are 12 inspiring, very unique Christmas wreaths that I came across during my hunt for holiday wreath inspiration.

The non-traditional shape of a square outdoor Christmas wreath is eye catching all on it’s own, but add the chartreuse reindeer moss, multi-sized beads and ornaments and it makes quite the bold statement.  The burlap red bow tones it all down just enough for a standout look.

I guess this one is more suited to the kitchen than the front door, but I love the natural simplicity of this gingerbread man DIY Christmas wreath with the cute checked ribbon woven through.

This wreath could be made using a dropcloth instead of canvas.  The tags could be made by hotgluing lengths of ribbon with stamped letters and a button glued in place.

Hmmm….we just happen to have a couple of extremely under-used bicycles in our garage. I love this creative holiday wreath using a bicycle wheel and attaching items to the spokes!

Chipping With Charm

A wreath made with recycled tin cans would be something easy and fun for kids to do.  Just switch the ladybugs out for Christmas ribbon.

And lastly, I have a slew of vintage costume jewelry from my mom.  She would love to see me bring out all of her pieces that have been packed away for years and turn them into something as beautiful as a Christmas wreath.

  1. Great wreathes Suzy. We are starting at my girlfriends this weekend. It is so fast this year.


  2. These are all very cute ideas and some of them are yes…a bit unique. xD
    Not sure I would put all of these in my house, but they definitely are creative. My favorite is the white wreath with the cardinals in it. Simple and classy!
