My Favourite 2015 Christmas Wreaths

Lovely to be asked by Amara Living to pick my favourite Christmas wreath look for 2015, but very difficult as there are SO many to choose from. I eventually plumped for this peacock extravaganza, luxurious and tactile and about as far from practical for my renovation as possible!original_gisela-graham-peacock-feather-wreath.jpg

I love the choices made by other designers, makers and bloggers in the fabulously festive article, especially these ones below.

The article shows a definite trend towards more eclectically balanced foliage, offset and heavily gathered to one side, with more sparsely decorated opposite edges. These designs give a very contemporary feel to festive wreaths and are relatively easy to create at home using garden greens and a simple hoop.

Super colourful and fun Christmas wreaths are also moving away from the traditional norm, brilliant for kids to help make and giving wonderfully modern bright shades centre stage.

A few others which I like this year are below. Which one’s your favourite?

How about a touch of the Highlands from Emily Hannah at NOTHS?

There’s simply no excuse not to do something a bit different this year and makes your front door stand out from the rest. Go on, give your postman a treat and ramp up your wreath x
