My Favorite Christmas Wreaths


I am a huge fan of decorating with wreaths. I love so many different Christmas wreaths and today I am sharing my favorites.

Christmas wreaths … 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 Christmas wreaths all over your home during the holiday season can be a delightful and festive tradition. Traditionally, wreaths represent eternal life and growth due to their circular shape, which has no beginning or end.

Christmas wreaths are beautiful and can add a touch of elegance and festive charm to your home. They come in various styles, from traditional evergreen with red berries and bows to more modern designs featuring different materials and colors. By hanging wreaths throughout your home, you can create a cohesive and inviting holiday atmosphere.

Decorating with wreaths offers an opportunity for creativity and personalization. If you use natural wreaths made from real evergreen branches, they can fill your home with a delightful, fresh pine scent. This natural fragrance can enhance the sensory experience of the season and create a cozy, holiday atmosphere.

Hanging Wreaths in Every Window


Wreaths aren’t just for doors; they can be hung on walls, windows, above fireplaces, or even used as centerpieces on tables. This versatility allows you to spread the festive spirit throughout your entire home.

There is no doubt that I love putting wreaths in the windows of our home. I have used Christmas wreaths in our windows every year for as long as I can remember. I bought these wreaths in my old craft room years ago and I own about 15 of them!

As you can probably tell, a lot of the wreaths in our home are fresh.

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 that make our house so festive. 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!

Look how great wreaths look on the backs of my counter stools in the kitchen!

The Best Places to Find Wreaths

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.

Of course, you can also buy them online.

Tips for Buying Wreaths for Your Home

Measure 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 a maximum of 24″ wreaths. The three smaller kitchen windows can only hold 15″ wreaths. So many wreaths are 30″ wide which is too big for most of our windows.

Don’t forget to consider hanging wreaths on interior doors, 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 it to 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 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!

  2. Love, love, love all the wreaths! How do you actually attach them to both the windows in the back of the chairs?
