If you want a light and elegant expression, you can tie the wreath on a metal ring. Start by covering the ring with floral tape so that the green sticks better. Tie small bouquets with floral wire. Should the wreath hang outside the door? Use greens, berries and pine cones, and avoid delicate flowers that collapse in the wind and weather. If the door is screened, you can choose a little more freely.
Wreaths create Christmas cheer both outside and inside. Give the classic expression a twist with an elegant, slim model with grey-green mimosa leaves that do not sprinkle, but stay well throughout the Advent season. Use thin steel wire to attach the leaves to a ring of aluminum wire, and add a couple of hydrangeas to create asymmetry and eye-catching. Find out where you want the wreath to hang before you start, and adjust the size accordingly.
Get maximum Christmas atmosphere with a solid Christmas wreath in the window. Make a large circle of aluminum wire, wrap it around several times so that you get a solid base. Attach branches of larch and ivy to the wreath with steel wire. Start with the strongest branches and twigs, and finish with the thinnest. Finish with some details in gold or other decorations. The Christmas decorations are from Bungalow and the light house in the windowsill from Jette Frölich.
If you dream of a modern version of the classic Christmas wreath, you can start with an iron ring and only decorate a small part of it. It gives a lighter, slightly cooler expression. If you choose a raw iron ring, the expression will be rustic, while a golden ring gives extra Christmas atmosphere. Give the wreath a softer touch with hydrangea, juniper berries and mimosa. Cut them short and fasten them to the ring with thin steel wire.
Welcome family and friends with a beautiful natural wreath on the front door. If you have an old wreath, you can use it as a base, or you can make one from aluminum wire and adapt the size to the door. Attach the moss to the ring with thin steel wire, then tie long branches of larch or spruce, holly and mimosa to the ring. Attach small, red berries to the wreath if you want it to be even more Christmassy.
This Advent wreath is one of the simplest, but no less beautiful for that reason. Use a nice board as a base, place a simple, four-armed candlestick or four small candlesticks on the board, and distribute the Christmas balls around. Feel free to choose balls in matching colours, and place a few outside the board so that the decoration gets the space it deserves. The tray is from Søstrene Grene, the candlestick from Georg Jensen and the Christmas baubles are vintage finds
Mix flowers of several sizes, colors and shapes and use thin wire or a glue gun to attach them to a plump straw wreath. Attach the large flowers at the bottom and the smaller ones at the top - remember to be light with your hand, because dried flowers break easily. The straw wreath and candle holders are from Panduro Hobby, while the dried flowers were bought in a flower shop.
Advent decorations can be made quite easily. If you want a wreath with an unfussy, Nordic expression, then look for a pretty, flat stone that can be used as a base. Use long, slender lights that will be a nice contrast to the more bombastic stone. Drip candle from another candle onto the stone and stick the long candles into the candle. Very simple and very nice! Both the Christmas bauble and the chair are vintage finds.
Create your own little snow landscape with a homemade Advent wreath with nice paper decoration. Form a circle of wire, preferably in 4-5 turns, and spin some wire around the circle to stabilize it. The wreath will be light and flimsy, so use thin candles that don't weigh much. Make candle holders by wrapping wire around the end of the candles and then around the garland. Fold white, thin cardboard in half and cut small ovals which you attach to the wreath with a glue gun.
