Ooooooohhhh Christmas Wreath

Don't you just love the holidays?  There's something about this wonderful time of year that makes me feel all warm and cozy inside.  The music, decorations, christmas movies on TBS, spiced & cedar scented candles, sipping hot cocoa in front of the fire, the christmas tree at night, parties, food, cocktails, presents - you name it... I love it.  In the spirit of keeping my holiday decor new and fresh, I decided to hang some wreaths in the living room.  It's something I've never done before but it seems that everyone's doing it... so why can't I??

These fresh pine and cedar wreaths were sitting in a cardboard bin at Trader Joe's for a mere $5.99.  How adorable are the little pine cones?  And I love that they actually smell Christmas!  All I needed to hang them was a couple of thumb tacks, scissors and some red satin ribbon I already had on hand.

Figure out how high or low you want the wreath to hang.  Whoops, too much slack on the ribbon in the below shot.  Need to raise it up a bit.

One thumb tack was all it took to hold the wreath in place.  Ummm, looks like I need to start dusting up  there!

pssst... pay no attention to my horribly styled cabinets!

I just love fresh greens in the house around the holidays.  They smell SOOOO good.  Next up, the mantel... I'm leaning towards some Paper Whites to keep things fresh and natural.  What do you think?

  1. I always love that look with the ribbon. I'm going to have to look next year as these would be cute on the four windows in our family room.

    1. Thanks Colleen. I want to keep them up all year round... but that would be weird.. right?! ;)


I love hearing from you! Thanks for taking the time to read a Lo and Behold Life and leaving me a comment!
