reindeer yarn wreath

I know a whole bunch of people are complaining that, once again, Christmas is here too early. Well, I can’t hear those people. I have been ready for the holiday season since December 26th, and now that November has finally made its way back around, I am starting to feel a little less guilty for listening to my Christmas music.

I have not actually put up any decorations yet…I’m honestly trying to hold off as long as I can. However, this morning I decided that putting a Christmas wreath on the door wouldn’t be too crazy (hopefully the rest of the neighborhood doesn’t disagree with me).

So of course I went to etsy to check out what kind of wreaths people are coming up with for Christmas this year, and there are some awesome ones! And I noticed a huge trend with wreaths made out of yarn and felt…like this one. How¬†gorgeous¬†is this?

Or this one…I love the contrast of the bright Christmas bulbs against the simple gray yarn:

There’s nothing like some red and white candy stripes to get you feeling Christmas-y:

Does it get any cuter than this? Nope, it sure doesn’t.

An argyle Christmas wreath? Yes, please.

I love the simplicity of this one:

But there are some beautiful non-yarn wreaths too, of course…

I love this felt flower wreath…it just looks so soft and squishy!

Who would have thought plain white burlap could make such a stunning wreath…

…and even more unexpected… pages from a vintage book. This is incredible:

I’m dying to try making my own yarn wreath. Maybe that will be a future blog post. In the meantime, I think I could stay on etsy looking at all the handmade wreaths for forever…

      You’re welcome, Katie…your wreaths are gorgeous! I had a hard time deciding which of them to post here… your gray wreath, or your black and white one with the red bulbs. :D

    Thanks for sharing those gorgeous wreath pics. I was going to try one of those this season. I already bought the supplies and I too have already heard the Christmas music, it does cheer the heart.
