You can feel more in tune with the event during special occasions if you have the right decorations at your home. As the dates get closer to the holiday season, let’s make the atmosphere feel more like the holiday season. Setting the house decorations becomes an easy goal when you have wreaths!
Wreaths are circular garlands usually hung on the front doors of homes. Although wreaths are typically used for Christmas decorations, you can also use them for different holidays, occasions, and parties. These decorations make it more convenient for anyone to design a house for any holiday. As a result, many stores sell pre-made wreaths, but the prices can be excessively high for decoration. If you desire to save some money and make the ornament more special, you can do it yourself. The sky’s the limit for decoration ideas, of course, but there are a lot of ideas you can check. To get you started, here are some wreath decoration ideas you can use for two special events: Christmas and Easter.
When Christmas is just around the corner, almost every house lights up like dynamite during the night! But during the day, most decorations have to be well thought of so that you can feel the holiday vibe in your home. When it comes to Christmas decorations, your exterior decor is just as important as the ones you hang up inside of your home. The most common Christmas decoration you can find is a wreath since it is traditionally and most commonly used as a decoration for the Christmas season. Christmas wreaths are classy, and they can enhance your home’s passageway and make a lasting good impression on anyone who enters your home!
Here are some Christmas wreath decorations that you can create and display at your home:
1. Sisal trees wreath
You can get sisal trees in different sizes and colors to elevate any simple wreath you’re initially planning on! Having these fabulous additional elements can make a big difference for your garlands. You can arrange them at the bottom part of the wreath so it gives the oomph factor. You can add some softness and texture to your decor using fake snow fluff. Finish the decoration with a big red ribbon draping down the wreath below the trees.
2. Candy cane wreath
Candy canes are one of the best Christmas icons you can see whenever the season is coming near. They’re both sweet and iconic, which makes them the perfect decoration to add to your front door. Decorating for Christmas doesn’t get more festive than this! You can make a wreath of candy canes, peppermint sticks, and round peppermints. You have to unwrap the candy and set them on a Styrofoam wreath first, then layer the candy cane on the surface and hot glue them. You can also use different sizes of candy to fill in gaps quickly. When the wreath is covered in sweets, don’t forget to put a pretty bow at the bottom for a festive touch!
3. Round, colorful ornament wreath
You don’t have to strictly stick to the green and red color scheme for your decoration. You can go ahead and celebrate with all the colors of the rainbow by attaching ornaments of different colors to a greenery wreath. To keep it polished, you can keep each color in its quadrant. Round ornaments are also better when you’re planning to put multi-colored decorations.
4. Metallic magnolia leaf wreath

What’s great about this add-on is that it can hang as permanent decor on your front door regardless of the occasion. You can turn it on all year long because it doesn’t have a strict Christmas-y vibe.
5. Tobacco basket wreath
If you want a rustic farmhouse chic effect on your wreaths, you can use tobacco baskets to elevate the look. These add-ons can make up a beautiful yet uncomplicated wreath.

7. Colorful Christmas bulbs wreath
If you’re not the type to appreciate a lot of Christmas lights all over the decoration, you can also choose a more minimalistic style that still lights up as it should. You can get colorful incandescent bulbs and hot glue two layers of them to a flat hoop ring. Doing this makes a unique DIY wreath that doesn’t look cheap!
8. Cellophane candy wreath
Christmas decoration doesn’t always have to be all new and expensive. If you’re the type who likes to reuse and recycle your stuff, you can also use cost-efficient materials as your ornaments. For this design, you can repurpose your cardboard rolls of toilet paper and paper towels into something beautiful by making a candy-inspired wreath!
Another favorite occasion is Easter since many good events are happening during this time of the year. The best thing about decorating for Easter is that the decorations don’t have to be taken down once the season is over.

After all, the season’s aesthetic never goes out of style. If you add a wreath on your front door or wall, you can find it an easy way to feel the joy of springtime and the Easter holiday.
