A Christmas wreath is a must when it comes to Christmas decorating. I say a door without a wreath is like an outfit without jewellery. So I’m here to help you find the perfect Christmas wreath for your door or somewhere else in your home.
Traditional Bell & Bird Christmas Wreath from Bed Bath n’ Table
Traditionally you hang a Christmas wreath on your front door to welcome guests and let the Christmas spirit into your home. Being a circle, the wreath symbolises eternity as it has no beginning and no end.
Wreaths are commonly made from evergreens, like holly, pine, fir, boxwood, etc. to symbolise everlasting life. Modern wreaths are made from all sorts of materials. Here are some of the prettiest wreaths for Christmas 2015.

It’s easy to make a DIY wreath. Simply buy a plain wreath and add some baubles, decorations and ribbon.

I spoilt myself this year and just ordered this special wreath from The Doors of Berry. He’s on his way and I can’t wait to hang him somewhere.
