f you've been Christmas decor shopping this year, you'll notice that every piece of fake greenery that looks halfway real is insanely expensive. Perhaps this is a generalization to all years and not solely this year, nevertheless, it's a little bit bananas what some of the faux products are going for. I'm a guilty consumer who has bought some pricey faux greenery this year, but, for the record, I'm a guilty consumer
who would prefer a deal. Which would explain why I opted for this super plain one super-sale $20 wreath from the Bay (currently in stock as I write this but definitely goes in and out and changes price!) instead of one that was already decked out with some ribbon and bells. It would also explain why I’m here to, hopefully, help you deck out your front door wreath in the event you can snag a super inexpensive, yet high-quality looking version too.
Subtle Ribbon Choices for the Wreath
Listen, when it comes to trends this year for holiday decor, I would say the focus is on simplicy, greenery, and my favourite, ribbon. Not just any ribbon; we are talking velvet ribbon or a chiffon that hangs beautifully. That’s the first thing I affixed to my wreath here – a mixture of both the chiffon and the velvet for the most perfect touch.
I purposefully threaded the ribbon behind my greenery so I could get more greens and a simple ribbon bow that hangs subtly.
Bells, Bells, Bells
I love a good simple wreath and again, based on this years’ trends, you could leave it completely naked and be nailing it. If you wanted a little something, just follow the steps above and get your perfect wreath.
