Gathering Materials

Gather the materials for your DIY Christmas wreath project. Embrace the modern charm with a minimalist twist. While looking for supplies I found a gorgeous flocked wreath that had large pinecones and berries.  A great start to an elegant wreath.  My holiday decorating includes vintage cow bells that tie the mantel and Christmas tree together.  Carrying that theme to the wreath was easy when I found cow bells that are a perfect size.  You can get your cow bells here.

Ensure the arrangement remains balanced, harmonizing each element to create a seamless blend of contemporary and timeless elegance. Let the wreath reflect the beauty of the season while resonating with your unique aesthetic.

Infusing Timeless Charm

To infuse your Christ Decor with timeless charm, incorporate classic elements such as velvet ribbons, rustic pinecones, and delicate holly berries. Choose a color palette that complements your existing home decor, ensuring the wreath becomes an integral part of your holiday aesthetic. Let the simplicity of your design evoke feelings of joy, warmth, and nostalgia, bringing cherished memories to the forefront of your holiday celebrations.

There are so many ribbon options, for the holidays I love classic red and a beautiful white chiffon frayed ribbon.  It ties in with the flocking and the red berries.  

Showcasing Your Creation

Christmas is prime decorating season.  There are so many ideas and inspiration to decorate your home.  I like to keep things elegant and modern.  Having a beautifully decorated home but no so over that top that it takes weeks to decorate.  Adding beautiful touches with lights and intentional pieces.  

Besides the front door a wreath can be hung over a mantel, piano or entry table.  You could layer it with a picture frame or mirror.
