We usually start the Christmas decorating Thanksgiving weekend. When I was a kid we didn’t put up the tree until about a week before Christmas, so Thanksgiving always seemed a little recklessly early to me. But now that the commercial Christmas season starts around Halloween, or even sooner, I guess I’m on the later end of the spectrum.
This year, I was thinking I need to change up my front door wreath. For the last 3 or 4 years, I’ve had this. I like it okay, but it’s just time for a change.
So, I went to the Better Homes and Gardens website to look for inspiration. And look what I found! Their snowflake wreath bears a striking resemblance to mine, no?
But I still want something different, so I kept looking. I lean more toward a wreath with traditional bones. The Bountiful Beauty has a pretty nature-inspired look.
The Satin Cuff wreath is traditional without being boring or stuffy.
The Peppermint Twist is fun, though I’m not sure that it would survive damp weather outside, and if I hung it inside, I think it would gradually be denuded of many of its candy canes by my 3 elves.
I think I saw several versions of this type of Sparkling Ornament wreath on the blogs last year. It’s fun and fabulous!
But I love this Wild Berry wreath! It’s fresh and woodsy and still has sparkle. This one just went to the top of my list.
You never know what I’ll end up with, though. I’ve got a lot more inspiration to comb through.
What do you hang on your front door for the holidays?
