Massed baubels give a modern twist to the traditional design

Making a modern classic!


Christmas is a lovely time to bring a little warmth, colour and sparkle into your home, to banish the cold outside.

Traditionally, wreaths made of green spruce, pine and conifer decorated with pine cones, berries and a bow would adorn your front door. 

Today, however, with modern decor and interiors, traditional designs may not be in-keeping with the overall scheme. There are truly some wonderful ideas that you can take inspiration from to create your own wreath, but with a modern twist to suit your own personal style.

Need to know basics

The easiest way to make a wreath would be to use a foam frame. These are perfect for designs that incorporate the use of fresh materials, as the foam can be soaked in water and will retain enough to keep the design looking fresh.  This type of wreath frame can also be used a massed design using only dried materials such as ribbons, pine cones, baubels and berry sprigs. If you decide to make a massed design, so additional 'anchorage' may be required to make sure the materials are attached securely. This may be achieved by the use of wires, pins or a hot/ cold melt glue gun for a precise application of adhesive.

All about colour!

The best way to achieve a contemporary feel to your design is to think about the colour scheme. Traditional reds and green can be updated to give a more modern feel. However, in recent years, there has been an explosion of colours for christmas decorations- bright cerise pinks, purples, teals and greens, oranges teamed with gold, silver and glitter for a festive feel.

Modern Materials

Of course, using unusual modern materials such as brooches, cocktail umbrellas (as above) or hand made paper and ribbons will give you an modern twist very easily. But there is no need to shy away from tradition items such as spruces or berries- with the addition of a little spray paint and placed in a massed or grouped design you will achieve a crisp, clean chic look.
