Will you be home for Christmas? No one wants to miss this wonderful time of the year with their families and friends.

Whether or not you find enough reason to decorate your lawn this Christmas, you should grab some Christmas wreaths to hang in your door. That is at the very least.

The Meaning of Wreath

A wreath refers to the decorative ornament that we hang on the door, usually made up of finely assembled bunch of flowers. Generally speaking, a wreath may be hung at any time of the year.

However, the tradition of hanging wreath is practiced only once a year. That is none other than Christmas time. That is why you only hear of the term Christmas wreaths rather than any other wreaths. Now that you know what Christmas wreaths are, have you ever wondered what Christmas wreaths are supposed to symbolize?

If you are interested in history and origins of things, it is good to know that the bunch of flowers that you hang on the door, is supposed to be a celebratory symbol for the birth of Christ. Nonetheless, no one seems to care what holiday wreath symbolizes anymore nowadays. Many just see it as a pure form of festive decoration.

Sky is the Limit to Creativity

Talking about beautiful Christmas wreath, the possibility is virtually endless. At the very basic, ask yourself the question. Are you going to take on the task and do it all by yourself? Do you have the time to do it? Making a unique and attractive wreath is not too difficult. What you need is time, passion and a bit of creativity. If you have no time for the task, then take a look at some of the Christmas wreath ideas that I've curated.

Wreath Designs

If we talk about Christmas wreath in general, I see there are three broad styles that you can choose from. First, there is the elegant style. This refers to the traditional or conventional style. Two colors - red and green - form the core components that go into elegant-type of Christmas wreaths.

Then, there is the classy style. This style is a slight departure from the conventional style. While such parts as the leaves and Christmas ball ornaments are used in both the elegant and classy styles, the classy style adopts non-traditional color choices. Rather than the natural color of the leaves and fruits, classy Christmas wreaths use silver or gold colors as its base.

The option is entirely yours to make. The thing to note when selecting between the two styles is the color of your door. The color of your door forms the background of the wreath. Therefore, at times, choosing between the two is not a matter of preference, but rather, a contextual decision.

Modern Christmas Wreath

Over the years, the range of options for Christmas Wreaths are growing. If you want non-traditional looking wreath to hang on your door, these wreaths are beautiful.

Over the years, design of Christmas wreath has been changing in line with the passing of time. As wreath decoration is no longer associated with religious thing, wreath manufacturers start to introduce more creative wreath designs.

This is what I consider as modern wreath style. At one glance, you would know the difference between modern and the former two styles. Unlike the traditional style, modern wreath designs are not constrained to the use of leaves. As you can see from the selected picture of modern Christmas wreath shown below, pine branches may be used to create a softer wreath image.

As you can see from the few simple wreath examples that I've curated, there are tonnes of options available to make it part of great Christmas outdoor decoration. You just need to be a little more creative and open yourself to a world of new possibilities.
