10 best Christmas wreaths to make and buy

16 Nov

I have to start this one with a confession: I am a Christmas tree voyeur.

One of my greatest festive pleasures is discreetly (ok, not always discreetly) peering into people’s windows as I pass and perving on their Christmas tree decorations. This is also why I love wreaths so much. While the Christmas tree is the coy flirt of the decoration world, tempting our sideways glances, the wreath is the brazen tart, putting it all out there for the whole world to stare and admire!

So without further strange ramblings, I present for you all my Christmas wreath round-up. Five beauties to buy and five more to make yourself. Enjoy!

    The twig wreath is so perfect. Sometimes I really wish I had a cottage on the countryside :)

    Yes, I think I’ll indulge in a brazen tart for our door this year. Twigs and berries for me I reckon.

    These are gorgeous! I love the lichen twig one. But what I’m really looking for at the moment is a fabulous, simple, advent wreath with five candles, to brighten our breakfast table through December. So far I’m stuck – any ideas?
