I love thinking of ways to use Christmas decorations in multiple ways to get more bang for my buck. Today I am sharing creative ways to use a Christmas Wreath.
This Nearly Natural olive leaf wreath with olives and red berries is absolutely perfect for any area in your home.
I love the look olive leaves for a few reasons
We have spent time in Italy over the last couple of years. After walking through many olive tree orchards this brings back such sweet memories.
We also own an Italian palace over there and we are in the process of restoring it!
When I saw this Olive leaf wreath I just had to have it!
The branches of this Olive leaf wreath are very realistic looking to me. As are the little olives and red berries. I really wanted a light and airy look and this wreath really hit the mark for me.
Some wreaths out there are a little too stiff and thick. This just has a more natural look and feel to it. Nearly Natural has a huge selection of all kinds of beautiful wreaths, garlands and Christmas trees!
Hot Chocolate Bar Surrounded By A Christmas Wreath
You could use a white or a more natural looking cake stand or even a red cake stand. I tried white and a natural stand. I liked both of them against the green olive leaves on the wreath.
On top of the cake stand I displayed some Hot chocolate goodies!
In a tall slender glass vase I added fluffy white marshmallows for easy grabbing.
I put my hot chocolate mix in a cute shaped bottle that is easy to pour into Santa mugs. Save this video to your Christmas Pinterest board!
Two small bowls with Christmas sprinkles that have small silver mini sized spoons in them.
One glass filled with peppermint sticks to use as stirrers for the hot chocolate.
Hang Christmas Wreath On A Large Chalkboard
In our dining room that you might remember we recently updated, I have a large chalkboard hanging above my sideboard.
Using my Christmas chalkboard like this sets the tone for whatever we are celebrating at the time.
Simply tying the Olive leaf wreath with a darling black and white striped ribbon and hanging the wreath at the top of the chalkboard.
I had my daughter write Happy Holidays curved underneath the wreath on the chalkboard.
I. LOVE. IT.
The black chalkboard really allows the leaves, olives and red berries to stand out!
Using Olive Leave Wreath as a Centerpiece
You might remember we added a new planked top to an old antique table that we have had. With this new addition, this table is nice and long and I can seat all the family around it.
I love to create centerpieces that are pretty and that everyone can see over.
There is nothing worse than having a huge centerpiece that blocks the view of the people sitting across from you.
My Olive leaf Christmas wreath is perfect because it sits low in the center of the table. It adds the perfect Christmas touch.
Adding a red footed cake stand adds color. Flanking it on either side with clear hurricane vases, adds beauty and function.
I think I will probably add lots of different heights of candles to the cake stand so that the whole room will be lit up with glowing candles.
Hanging Wreath On Front Door
Of course how could I not show this beautiful Olive Leaf red berry wreath on my front door! It is the natural place for any wreath to be displayed.
Adding the black and white striped ribbon and hanging it below the glass panes against my white door has got to be my favorite decoration of all time!
Light and airy and pretty! How could you want anything more?
I hope you enjoyed these creative ways to use a Christmas wreath and will be inspired to try some of these ideas in your own home this year!
