How To Decorate A Live Wreath For Your Front Door

DIY Front Door Live Wreath

I've just finished decorating my live front door wreath and thought I would share it with you. I'm pleased with the results. Every year a neighbor child sells wreaths as part of a school fundraiser and that is how we get our live wreath. I kind of debated leaving the wreath undecorated on our front door. We have green shutters against a white front on our house and the solid green kind of looked pretty on the white door just by itself. But, I decided the wreath needed a little more "merry and bright" so I went with what you see here!

The wreath decorations are actually pretty simple. I started by wrapping white tulle around the wreath and then tied a pretty bow to hang down the middle of the wreath. I already had these white and red picks and they were easy to insert around the wreath and then arrange them the way I wanted. I then finished with a few simple red balls. 

I haven't used tulle on a wreath before and it was super easy to work with! I've had it forever and it's nice to actually use what I have. I'm pleased with my pretty wreath and I think the house is now complete with decorating! Sometimes, I like to rearrange a few items so you never know! 

How is your decorating coming along?  Do you decorate a live front door wreath?  Let me know in the comments.  I love hearing from my readers!

Until Next Time,

Your wreath is beautiful! It's festive with just the right amount of decoration on it. I thought I was finished decorating, but I'm going to try creating a ribbon tree from some ribbon I already have and a purchased styrofoam cone shape. I think it's fun to try some new and creative things during the holiday season.

It's very pretty Debbie. I love the toile...is that what you call what you used for ribbon? It's so whispy and really allows the beautiful wreath to shine

That's beautiful Debbie! I love the little red ornaments you used! I'm sure your wreath was beautiful on its own, but your embellishments really dressed it up for Christmas! I have never had alive wreath. Live trees every year, but not a wreath. I have a faux greenery one but maybe next year I'll go for a real one like yours!

That's so pretty!
I have a live wreath too but it comes already decorated with a few baubles, some dried citrus slices, chilli peppers and some cinnamon sticks.
I love a wreath!
