5 More Ways to Dress Up a Basic Evergreen Wreath


Last holiday season I gave myself a challenge: take a basic evergreen wreath and personalize it. I had so much fun with this project, I thought I would do it again this year.

In case you missed it, here's a quick snapshot of I came up with:


Based on page views, your favourites were the Lady Bug Wreath and the Blue Jay Wreath

I also did a Partridge and Pear Wreath, A White Rose & Berry Wreath and a Fruit & Berry Wreath (the links will lead you to the how-to's).


This year, the challenge again began with a very basic evergreen wreath, which I purchased at the grocery store for $10.99. 

My wreath came with a rather sad, crumpled bow and a few token pinecones. But the hard work was done for me, so I am not complaining. All I had to do was to dress it up and make it pretty!

So what did I come up with for the 2015 holiday season?



A Snowy Owl Holiday Wreath



A Holiday Bell Wreath



An Antique Rose Holiday Wreath



A Butterfly Holiday Wreath



And finally, a Teddy Bears and Toys Holiday Wreath.
This one is for the children or grandchildren in your life!



So what's your favourite?

  2. They are all very nice Jennifer, when I make Christmas wreaths it's mostly one like your bell wreath, but it's not my favorite of this post, I love the Snowy owl wreath which is my number 1.
    Have a nice weekend!

  9. Hello Jennifer girl !
    All these wreaths are gorgeous but my most favorite is the snowy owl one (I have a weakness for owls)I love the cool colour pallet .. it all works so beautifully !
    You have a wonderful artistic imagination to "see" what a plain wreath could become ... they truly are wonderful.
    Now if I had more energy .. I would love to follow suit and design some myself .. or ? just copy yours because I don't think I could improve on any of them girl ... haha !
    Love this post !
    Joy : )

  10. They're all beautiful! I'd probably pick the bell wreath for myself just for its more traditional look, but I do like the snowy owl one, too. It would be a perfect gift for a few of my friends who love owls.
