Every year I buy a fresh wreath for my front door. I love welcoming guests with real greens but I don’t love cleaning up the needles on the front porch and the foyer.
I usually spend about $30.00 or $40.00 on the wreath but this year, I went artificial!

I found this 30 inch one at Home Depot and now I will have it for years to come! I had the ribbon already so I made the bow and I figure I can change it each year for a new look. (This exact wreath is now discontinued but I found a similar wreath and even a pretty pre-lit wreath.)
Don’t ask me for a bow tutorial though! I kind of just wing it and basically they come out different every time! The ribbon I used is 2 1/2 inches and has a wire edge if that helps any. You might like this bow and or this pretty bow.
Anyway, like I said the wreath is 30″ so it fits perfectly on my door. And honestly, you really can’t tell it’s artificial unless you sniff it…and I don’t have any wreath sniffing friends so I think I am okay!
We did buy a “real” Christmas tree today though. I would never convince my husband to go artificial with that!
We went out to buy it first thing this morning. The snow had just started at that point. It’s been snowing all day so it’s been a great day to decorate the tree!
Anyway, back to the wreaths and bows…
The other day, I showed you my kitchen window. I bought a bunch of these plain wreaths on sale at Michael’s for like $3.99 each!
You might have seen a couple of the wreaths hanging on the french doors in my living room in a recent post.
Here’s a closer shot.
I thought about hanging three down the doors but you really don’t see them once the room has been rearranged for the Christmas tree!
(Excuse the bad lighting and photography.)
This one is on my laundry room door.
I just wrapped around some black and white ribbon to match the room.
And I recently hung this one on the dining room mirror.
I used the same ribbon as the front door wreath.
Did you buy many wreaths this year?
I’d love for you to follow along so you don’t miss a post!
