Did you know that the holiday wreath as we know it hails back to ancient Rome? Back then a wreath hung on a door was a sign of victory. This year, celebrate a victory over ho-hum, ready-made plastic wreaths and hang a unique homemade one instead. At Taylor Morrison our favorites range from elegant to sweet.
Here are a few of our picks for unique DIY wreaths, complete with instructions.
If you’re having a white Christmas at your house in Denver, this could be the wreath for you. The small wreaths can be hung on doorknobs throughout your home, so while you’re staying cozy indoors you can still enjoy the tinkling of sleigh bells.
Be sure to use your favorite wrapped candies for this one, because you can actually eat the wreath! Using three pounds of candies wrapped with twists at the ends, a white coat hanger and some floral tape, you can make a very sweet decorative wreath.
The apple wreath is perfect for folks in our Southern California homes, like people who own Taylor Morrison houses in Irvine. To make it, you’ll need plywood, nails, tools, spray paint, a bow, some holiday greenery and 20 pounds of green apples. Delicious!
