If you prefer an understated look when it comes to home décor, decking the halls for Christmas can feel especially daunting because the glitz and glitter of traditional decorations clash with your style. For those of us who feel more frazzled than festive at the thought of blinking lights and blingy ornaments, there’s a simple solution: a Scandinavian-style Christmas. The Nordic countries take a decidedly simple approach to holiday decorating, with lots of neutral colors, glowing candles, and fresh greens to spread good cheer while maintaining a calm and welcoming vibe.
This year, we’re taking our cues from the Scandi style with a decorating DIY for the holiday home: an evergreen circle. Less lush and full than standard wreaths, circlets take on a slender, elegant silhouette that feels festive without going over-the-top. We love these simple adornments for their sophisticated simplicity, endless versatility, and fresh fragrance. Best of all, they’re incredibly easy to make! Read on for our how-to and get ready for a stylish holiday season.
Fresh evergreen cuttings
Sturdy metal wire or metal wreath ring
Green floral wire
Fresh winterberry (optional)
Ribbon or twine (optional)
For best longevity, display your fresh wreaths in a cool location. Avoid vents and fireplaces, which can cause the greens to dry out more quickly, and mist the wreath occasionally using a spray bottle of cool water.
We love to hang a single circlet in each window during the holiday season or showcase a grouping of several circlets hung with bright ribbons on a large, blank wall.
