Can you believe that Christmas is four weeks away? Somehow it always sneaks up on me. I'm starting to get in the spirit though, and we're planning to get our tree this weekend (and put up our other two artificial ones... yes we're going to have three trees). 

I've always wanted to take advantage of the windows that flank our front door, so when I saw all the pretty wreaths at Wayfair it occurred to me that they might look pretty suspended from the ceiling with red ribbon and string lights. And they do! So today I'm going to share a quick and easy tutorial with you so you can recreate the look in your own house. And they don't necessarily have to go in windows... they would look pretty on doors as well.

Here's what you'll need for your Christmas wreath window display:

Fluff up the wreaths if they need it and lay one face down. Wrap the end of the ribbon around it and place a line of hot glue right above the wreath. Fold the end of the ribbon over the wreath and carefully attach it to the line of glue.

Lay another wreath on your work surface so it is 12 inches from the edge of first wreath. Repeat the gluing process again. Do this again until all three wreaths are connected to each other.

Attach a piece of ribbon to the top part of the top wreath too and then glue the wood to the top of it as shown above. Trim the excess ribbon. I had about 8 inches between the top of my wreaths and the ceiling, but you can adjust the measurements according to your space.

To suspend it from the ceiling, place the wooden piece against the ceiling and nail it in with two small nails. You can stick it to the ceiling with tape while you hammer to make it easier if necessary, then remove the tape afterward. Hammer the nails in at an angle so they stay secure. Last, put the battery pack part of your lights above the top wreath (tuck it inside the ribbon) and arrange the lights around all three wreaths. Repeat this whole process for the other side of the door.

The wreaths look so festive with the combination of the red ribbon and the lights, and since they're in the windows, they can be seen from outside too. They are the perfect size for this purpose... noticeable without being obtrusive.

If red isn't your color, switch it up... gold ribbon would look pretty, or you could go non-traditional and try something like pink or aqua. Have fun with it!

  1. This place is absolutely gorgeous, beautiful and stunning. Even though a few halls are equally appealing and fascinating in their decor, food and aesthetics, I'm tempted to still give these Los Angeles venues some slight edge.
