3 Fast and Festive Christmas Wreaths
It doesn't take hours to fashion these Christmas wreaths that welcome visitors to your home in holiday style!from Country Woman Christmas 2004
Invite carolers and neighbors to warm up in a front hall echoing with the joyful sounds of the season.
Shiny brass jingle bells, horns, and little toy drums blend with tiny scrolls of sheet music, sprigs of holly, and a festive holiday bow to trim the wreath above and trumpet 'Happy Holidays'!
Red gingham ribbon twirled and tied in a big bow cooks up a hearth-warming country look for this wreath.
Silver tea balls and measuring spoons add holiday sparkle and shine. Cinnamon sticks tied with red raffia lend a spicy scent tucked among jolly Christmas cookie cutters. For a fun finishing touch, try penning some whimsical recipe cards for 'Reindeer Treats,' 'Elf Snacks,' and 'Santa Sugarplums.'
Christmas is a time for memories and surprises in unlikely places. Brighten your guest bath with a seaside theme that combines beachcombing memories with special treasures collected on family vacations.
We freshened up this wreath with starfish and tiny tulle bags filled with sweet-smelling potpourri , then gave it all a wash of gala gold and red ribbon.
You could also use seashells, sand dollars, or small pieces of driftwood and beach glass.
