My Favorite Christmas Wreath


I am a huge fan of decorating with wreaths. I love every kind of Christmas wreath and today I am sharing my favorites.


A Christmas wreath … we can buy them fresh, buy them faux, and make our own. That’s why I love hanging wreaths all over our home every holiday!

Christmas Wreaths for Windows


Hanging Wreaths in Every Window

There is no doubt that I love putting wreaths in the windows of our home. I have used a Christmas wreath for windows every year for as long as I can remember. These wreaths in my craft room are from JOANN. I bought them years ago and oven about 15 of them!

I love hanging holiday wreaths in the kitchen.

As you can probably tell, this is a fresh wreath.

Do I have a favorite wreath? No! I love them all.


And I love them in our Waco kitchen too.

These are the same wreaths from JOANN. I was so obsessed with these a few years ago that I bought them for the Waco house too.

Adding a Christmas wreath to your windows is one of the most beautiful and impactful Christmas decorations you can use. I have used fresh holiday wreaths (from Trader Joe’s) every year. They are inexpensive and make every room smell like Christmas!

I also buy Christmas faux wreaths that are on sale because I love using them year after year. They are a great investment and look fabulous in any window too!

As I mentioned, I usually buy my fresh wreaths every year at Trader Joe’s. You can also find them at The Home Depot, a local floral mart, and local grocery stores.

Tips to Buying Wreaths for Your Home

  • Meaure your windows! Most of the windows in our home are over 100 years old and some are different sizes. Our larger kitchen windows can only handle maximum 24″ wreaths. The three smaller kitchen windows can only hold 15″ wreaths. So many wreaths are 30″ wide which are too big for most of our windows.
  • Don’t forget to conside hanging wreaths on interior dorrs, french doors and the inside of exterior doors.
  • Hanging wreaths is not hard to do. If you are hanging a wreath on a door, use a ribbon and attach on the top of the door with a thumbtack. Hammer the thumbtack flat so it won’t affect the door opening and closing. For windows you can use a command hook and hang a wreath directly on the glass. I put small tiny nails in the wood dividers of my windows about fifteen years ago. They are still there and I use them all year long. The nails can’t be seen (unless you look really hard!) so they stay up all year long.

  1. Leslie,
    I just love the button pillow, garland and little tree, but I would have to say my all time favorite is the painted pillow and cocktail napkins. What type of attachment do I need for my sewing machine. It is a older Singer but it does the job! It was my Mothers so I don’t want to buy a different machine due to sentimental reasons. I love your ideas and crafting! I have followed you for a long time and love your site. Belated Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Yesr 2022!❤️🎄🎉🍸

    1. Thank you so much Deborah for reaching out to me. I am so happy that you enjoy what I share. I love that you have your mother’s sewing machine. I certainly understand the sentimental reasons that you use it. Here is the link for the free motion/darning foot that I use, The description says it fits Singer machine, but I don’t know which models. Hopefully it fits your machine so you can make all of the fun pillow covers and cocktail napkins!
