Decking the Doors… Christmas Wreaths


I have made my share of Christmas wreaths through the years. I wish I had a picture of all of them.


Today, I am participating in The Polohouse’s Favorites on the First, Favorite Holiday Wreaths. I hope you will fa la la la la on over and look at the ideas offered by fellow bloggers.

My wreaths this year include my front door wreaths and an oyster shell wreath.

I also have a wreath around the clock in my courtyard. It is adorned in clear C9 lights.


And there are numerous wreaths on my home’s front facade.

Here are pictures made and used by me, The Acorn at Wisteria Hill, in the past. I love wreaths and door swags/badges. I have used both.

Bucky, my leather deer head, is often decorated for the holiday season too.


One of my favorite wreaths from a 2007 Atlanta Christmas Show House was designed by my friends at Boxwoods Garden and Gifts. I’m glad I took and saved a picture.

  2. Beautiful! I really love your oyster wreath all decked in Christmas finery! Have a great Saturday! :)

  3. Love ALL your designs, Ron!

    I have always used decorated evergreen wreaths on my front foor, but the door is green so they never stand out!

    I have so much to do this week to get ready for the holidays (and the photo shoot on the tenth.) Wish you were here to help me!

    Have decorated my client's house for the last 8 days and now she is all set, so I can begin the holiday tweaks here... starting today!

    Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous artwork.
    Love the red berries and feathers in your designs. Always a favorite of mine!


  4. Ron, all of your wreaths are just gorgeous! Everything looks so pretty and festive. You're so talented!

    I can never get the ribbons right
    when I tie them they look like something
    on a schoolgirl's pony tail :(
