Christmas Wreaths


I was super excited to be a part of the Christmas Wreaths Workshops at The Pavilion, Ballygarvan last weekend.  Charlie and his team have turned the garden centre shop and cafe into a magical winter wonder land full of festive treats and Christmas decorating ideas to inspire even the most seasoned of us decorators! You can even visit Santa!

I’ll be sharing all of the Christmas Wreath workshop photos soon, but today I wanted to share how you can DIY your own Christmas wreaths at home, in case you’re looking to dress up your doorway, fireplace, entryway, etc. this year.

For those of you who couldn’t be there, I thought I’d share my workshop with you, which showcased the over overlooked and underestimated Christmas Wreaths! And I wanted to share with you how I made various different Christmas Wreaths by using supplies from The Pavilion to inspire your Christmas decorating planning.


So, yes! Don’t underestimate the beauty of Christmas Wreaths.  Think beyond the Christmas tree and traditional garland by adorning your home in style with wreaths.

Use these Christmas wreath ideas to create extraordinary Christmas decorations using ordinary materials from around the house and everything else is available at The Pavilion, Ballygaravan.

Don’t forget to Pin these ideas! Save these merry Christmas wreaths for later! Don’t forget to follow us on Pinterest for more festive Christmas ideas.

Go for a White Christmas bypassing traditional Christmas colours and make a rustic Christmas wreath that complements your décor.

Use hot-glue to stick acorns and, pinecones to a 16″ grapevine wreath. Apply a light coat of white spray-paint to create a frosted finish.

For maximum effect, cover with spray glue and using a clean paint brush sprinkle with glitter

To craft this door ornament, wrap Styrofoam balls (in two different sizes) and a Styrofoam wreath form with coloured wool.  The use a glue gun to fix the balls onto the foam, as shown.

Note this Christmas wreath is better off to be hung indoors for example hang off doors or on walls in place of an existing painting or mirror.


Christmas wreaths can double up as table centre pieces (just add candles) and alternative mantle piece decorating ideas
