Christmas wreathDecorating Christmas wreaths was my favorite part about owning my feed store. I would buy the wreaths undecorated from local wreath makers and then I'd take them back to my shop to beautifully decorate them from a huge variety of floral decorations and dollar store trinkets. The smell of fresh balsam boughs filled my shop with the pungent aroma of a freshly cut Christmas tree, taking me back to fun and joyful Christmas times as a kid.

The gallery provided with this blog post shows a nice variety of wreath types and styles but it only scratches the surface. Use the pictures to stir your imagination.Wreaths can be made from any variety of materials and can take many forms. All you need is a fairly rigid support made in the shape you desire. In the case of grape vine and other similar wreath materials, the material itself serves as the wreath form.

If you buy a wreath from a local source, it will generally be decorated for you but that doesn't mean you can't change or add things. Examine how your wreath is put together and decide if there are any changes or additions you'd like to make. If you'd like to start from scratch, you can find instructions for making one type of wreath at eHow.

You can use almost anything to decorate your wreath. Tanya Ryno provides ideas for personalizing your wreath. Look around in your Christmas decorations to find pretty little things you can easily attach with floral wire. Dollar stores are great places to find wreath decorations for just pennies and thrift stores are always an abundant source of holiday odds and ends. You can get tips for making your own holiday bows from Heather Craven. I encourage you to experiment with different combinations of decorations and a variety of looks.
