DIY modern festive wreaths

There are 36 sleeps until Christmas. Have you started decorating? Or at least thinking about it? 🙂 Last year, I was inspired by alternative Christmas trees and posted a roundup of them here. This year, I’m finding myself drawn to chic, modern wreaths which actually give a great excuse to get decorating well before December, because the simplicity of these wreaths makes them a lovely addition to autumnal and winter decor. These wreaths are not just for Christmas, and they’ll look lovely hanging anywhere in your home or on your front door!

Isn’t this absolutely stunning? Made by cutting a wire wreath frame to form a crescent shape, tying bunches of olive branches to it, hanging with floral wire and finishing with a final flourish of an olive green ribbon bow, this is simple yet so very, very chic! Full instructions here: Wreath by Putnam & Putnam for The Line.
