2023 DIY Christmas Wreath Designs

We’re on the runway now for the 2023 holiday season and we are so excited to see what’s trending for 2023 DIY Christmas Wreath Designs!

So far, Laurie and the rest of the members of Team Unique have already been busy making early wreaths for the season. As you know in the wreathing world, we’re always several months ahead to prepare for the upcoming holiday or season. The planning and anticipation are some of the best parts of DIY seasonal decor!

So what will we see a lot of this year?

As always, we’re going to see tried and true designs, such as:

*Christmas Tree Wreaths, made using the UITC Triangle Board – there’s a reason why Laurie’s original Christmas Tree design went viral on Pinterest!

*Poinsettia Wreaths, made using the UITC Large Wreath Board or Small Wreath Board

*Character Wreaths like Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, Frosty the Snowman, etc. made on the UITC Character Board

But there are lots of new and exciting designs this year to add to these tried and true classics and we can’t wait to see all of this year’s creative DIY decorations!

Team Unique 2023 Christmas Wreath Designs

Here are just some of the Christmas Wreath Designs Team Unique has made so far in 2023:

Rectangle Board Designs

So far for 2023, we’re absolutely loving the designs made on the UITC Rectangle Board! This is only the second Christmas season since the Rectangle Board was introduced by Unique in the Creek and the shape of this board lends itself to so many fantastic holiday uses.

Of course, we love this shape on a door for classic placement but they’re also perfect for decking halls, pillars, banisters, and hand rails. And the Rectangle Board is absolutely PERFECT for creating a holiday table centrepiece!

Every Rectangle Board comes in a 2-Pack, so you can use them individually or combine them together into a larger design.

Inspiration from Decals & Wreath Signs

As always, the community takes inspiration for wreaths from the latest available accessories and materials, and especially from vinyl decals for use with the Character Board and wreath signs for use with any wreath on any board!

Here are some fantastic Christmas wreath designs using decals and wreath signs from our community members in the Unique Wreath Creators Group on Facebook.

There are so many inspiring designs already made this year and it’s only September as we write this! We can’t wait to see what else everyone makes this year. As always, you can get started making your own wreath

How To Get Started

1. Start with a UITC™ board

2. Choose your materials; mesh, ribbon, vinyl decals & more. 

3. Use zipties to attach your materials to the board.

Trending: Dragon Wreath Ideas & Halloween Creations

The wreath community is just SO creative! If you haven’t seen the latest trends in dragon wreath designs and other Halloween themed crafts, then you’re in for a real treat! Prepare to be inspired!

As you’ve probably noticed, Halloween has become a bigger and bigger celebration the last few years. And it’s no wonder! It’s such a fun and magical holiday for kids – and it truly brings out great creativity in adults too. So if you love crafting and decorating your home, making a Halloween wreath can be truly delightful.

Lately, there’s been an extra influx of fantasy and whimsy in the wreath world with the ever-so-popular dragon wreath concepts, originally kicked off by Tina White. These designs use modified UITC Wreath Boards and excellent folded mesh techniques to create scales.

Not only are these designs great for Halloween but they could be a fantastic decoration in a kids room, game room, or media room all year long.

Made on modified UITC Wreath Boards

Here are some YouTube replays and tutorials from Michele from #TeamUnique!

Halloween Wreath Inspiration

When looking for seasonal inspiration, consider that Halloween is a time of mystery, magic, and, of course, a touch of the macabre. Halloween wreaths can be a blend of spooky, fun, and stylish. They offer crafters the opportunity to play with darker themes, incorporating elements like cobwebs, skulls, and black cats.

But it’s not all about the eerie and ominous. Many Halloween wreaths also celebrate the fun and playful “Happy Haunts” side of the holiday, featuring cheerful pumpkins, candy corn, and whimsical witches. Whether you prefer a design that sends shivers down your spine or one that sparks joy and laughter, there’s a Halloween wreath out there for you.

Here are a few recent wreaths from our community to put you in the mood:

We have an entire playlist on YouTube with replays and tutorials to learn to make a Halloween Wreath. Here are a few favourites:

How To Get Started

If you’re new to wreath making, you might be wondering how to get started? With our unique wreath making system, it couldn’t be easier. You don’t need any previous skills or experience.

Every DIY Halloween wreath starts with our unique take on traditional wreath making: 

1. Start with a UITC™ Wreath Making Board.

2. Choose your materials; mesh, ribbon & more. 

3. Use zipties to attach your materials to the board. 

4. Add accessories, wreath signs & finishing touches. 

5. Watch our YouTube videos for help and inspiration.

You’ll be amazed by how easy and satisfying it is to get started and you’re going to love the results.

Fall 2023 Ideas

From traditional to modern, minimalist to extravagant, there’s something for everyone. And who knows? You might just stumble upon the perfect design to grace your front door this fall.

1. Pumpkin Paradise

Nothing says fall quite like pumpkins. This season, you won’t be surprised to see that many of our crafters have incorporated various sizes of pumpkins into their wreaths. Whether it’s a single statement pumpkin in the centre or a cascade of mini pumpkins, this is a trend that’s both charming and classic.

2. Lush Leaves

From maple to oak, leaves are a staple in fall wreaths. This year, we’ve seen a rise in wreaths that mix different types of leaves, both in terms of species and colour. The result? A vibrant and textured piece that looks like it was plucked straight from a forest.

3. Berries & Blooms

Flowers aren’t just for spring! Many of our members have been incorporating autumn blooms like chrysanthemums and sunflowers into their designs. Paired with clusters of berries, these wreaths strike the perfect balance between delicate and bold.

4. Rustic Touches

Fall is all about coziness, and what’s cozier than rustic, farmhouse-inspired designs? Think burlap ribbons, wooden accents, and even little scarecrows. These elements add a touch of nostalgia and warmth to any wreath.

5. Whimsical Characters

For those looking to add a touch of whimsy to their decor, we’ve seen some adorable character-themed wreaths. From friendly ghosts to playful turkeys, these designs are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face. Sometimes these are made on the Character Board while other times they appear on a wreath sign or they’re featured as attachments.

6. Textured Tidbits

One of the standout trends this year is the use of varied textures. Combining elements like felt, twine, and even metal, these wreaths are a tactile delight.

Bringing It Home

Are you feeling inspired by all of these trending wreath designs for fall? Now that the days grow shorter and the nights cooler, we invite you to explore your creativity and craft a piece that will bring warmth and joy to your home.

DIY 4th of July Decorating Ideas & Festive Wreath Making Tips

How excited are you to decorate for Independence Day? We’re already getting our creative juices flowing with DIY 4th of July decorating ideas and have already started to dive in! 

Few things pull Americans across the country together like the 4th of July weekend. Of course, everyone celebrates in their own way, but if you look in just about every backyard, you’ll see grills being prepared with stacks of hotdogs and hamburgers, and houses and businesses are all starting to show an awful lot of red, white, and blue bunting!

Now you may know that Laurie is actually Canadian but lives right near the border at Niagara Falls. And we soooo respect the way Americans truly celebrate and take pride in their country! We could all learn a thing or two about the patriotic spirit from y’all! 

We love that decorating can begin with Memorial Day and carry right through to the 4th of July, building steadily week by week. And making your own festive decorations for the 4th of July is one of the best ways to get in the patriotic celebratory spirit. 

But you might ask, why bother taking the time to make your own when you can head to a store to buy some patriotically appropriate festive decor? 

Add Your Own Personal Star-Spangled Touches

Part of the problem with buying decorations is that they’re super impersonal and just very generic. Everyone has the same bunting, the same red, white, and blue balloons, the same Uncle Sam hat. But what if you want to put your own creative spin on things?

Well, that’s the beauty of DIY and where the wreath making community comes up with so many exceptional Pinterest-worthy ideas! If you have an idea for a unique piece of DIY home decor to celebrate the holiday, we definitely encourage you to run with it! So, break out those stars and stripes and start using your imagination! 

A DIY Wreath Is the Best Way to Say “Happy 4th of July”

Over the years, we’ve made dozens and dozens of America-themed wreaths for both Memorial Day and July 4th. And all of them scream out a love of the good ol’ U.S.of A.! 

Whether you’re having guests over on Independence Day or you just want to share your patriotic spirit with the neighbourhood, a wreath is a perfect fixture for your front door or placed on a pillar, post, or you can add several along a banister like bunting. 

Homemade 4th of July Decorations Save Money

Let’s not forget that making your own decorations for Independence Day can be a real cost saver! With our wreath making system, you can use fewer materials to make outstanding finished pieces that, when purchased, would cost considerably more than the sum of its parts. Just another reason to love that DIY feeling!

Check out these wreaths from some of our Creeker community members:

DIY Decorations Become Family Heirlooms 

Whether for Christmas, Easter, Halloween, or Independence Day, every family has decorations or ornaments that they love to break out, year after year. And often, those decorations are homemade. 

When we make our own seasonal wreaths, wall hangings, and decorations, we form a strong attachment to them. For us, the patriotic holiday just wouldn’t feel right without a July-4th-themed wreath on your door. By going the DIY route, you’re creating memories you can carry with you, holiday after holiday. And those memories can often carry on with your children long after you’re gone.

Get The Kids Involved

Speaking of building memories with your kids, one of the best ways to spend quality time is by doing DIY activities together. So if you’re making a patriotic wreath for this July 4th, why not involve the kids? Yes, there are many things that go into wreath making that might currently be beyond their abilities, but there are still tons of ways they can contribute. Not only will it bring you closer with your kids or grandkids, but it will also help build some excitement for the big day! 

Ready to Get Started on a Patriotic Wreath? Here is Everything You’ll Need! 

Every DIY patriotic wreath starts with our unique take on traditional wreath making:

1. Start with a UITC™ board.

2. Choose your materials; mesh, ribbon & more.

3. Use zipties to attach your materials to the board.

4. Add accessories, wreath signs & finishing touches.

5. Beautiful results every time!

Start by choosing your Wreath Making Board:

Happy 4th of July from All of Here at Team Unique!

No matter how you plan to celebrate Independence Day, we hope you have a wonderful holiday. The United States of America was founded on the principles of freedom and liberty, and the 4th of July is the perfect time for all of us to rededicate ourselves to those ideals.

Hi, I’m Michele from Monkey’s Creations. I’m an Air Force veteran, wife, mother, and grandma (monkey is my grandson).

As a nurse and mom, I never had much time to make anything creative. Then I quit my 9-5 nursing job, and found I had too much time on my hands.

Scrolling through Facebook one day, I came across a video of someone making a wreath. I thought, I can do that! Little did I know it has a lot harder than I thought. But I kept making and creating, and finally thought, I CAN DO THIS! And Monkey’s Creations was officially a business.

I love to inspire others, and to think outside the box, there are no limits in creativity.

Hey Friends! I don’t ever find it easy to talk about myself but here’ goes …

I’m Brian (a husband, a dad to 3 children and grandfather!) I grew up riding horses and competing all over USA in the  hunter and jumper disciplines, which led to opening my farm Oakvale Ventures in 1994. Oakvale has changed through the years from a training/showing farm, to now just a few horses that my daughter and I compete.

I crafted as a kid with my mom and grandma, helped them set up and sell their creations at local craft shows. The farm and horses moved me away from creating for a long time and my family also developed a Commercial Real Estate company  developing and building properties.

Somehow I stumbled across the wreath making community which brought me back to creating. I have only been making wreaths and decor for a little over a year now and I opened my Etsy Shop in early 2022. Stop by my Facebook page of the same name and say hello!

I love creating horse wreaths as well as farm life inspired wreaths/home decor and helping people add something unique to their homes. Looking forward to meeting more wonderful people in the wreath making community!

Hey y’all, I’m Keri Isenhart from Mountain Gal Creations.

I was born and raised in West Virginia and now reside in Vermont. I have been making different crafts since I was about  8 yrs old. I started making wreaths several years ago and started my own business.

I sell on etsy @  and accept custom orders. I also have a Facebook business page by the name of Mountain Gal Creations where I also do lives. Be sure to stop by, say hello and don’t forget to like and follow.

Hi I’m Sharon from Sharon’s Door Decor.

I’m a wreath maker, designer, planner, social media manager , financier, & packaging & shipping & handling coordinator too.

I was a one-to-one aide for special needs children for 4 years and then a kindergarten aide for a 1/2 a year before Covid hit. I do miss the little ones but after that, I started to really focus on making wreaths.

Now I run my small business from start to finish everyday full-time. I love feeling creative and coming up with beautiful designs for you all!  It’s a lot of work and I’ve completely taken over my small home! 

I’m so thankful that my husband supports and encourages me as I try to make my business successful. He’s always telling me, “ it’s ok to buy more, you need to spend money to make money”! Thank god because I shop a lot. 😉

My kids are also very supportive, always helping with my tech questions, all social media advice, and being my videographer too.  I hope my friends and family always want to hear more about my wreaths!

Thank you!!

My name is Jackie Blewett. I have been making wreaths for over 14 years now. What was once a hobby turned into a part time business in 2012.

For years I was able to keep up the pace of working a full time job, taking care of my daughter, grandfather, and making wreaths part-time. In the spring of 2017 I brought my grandfather home from the hospital to pass and lost him and my job within 5 days.

I was left wondering what I was going to do for a job now. As I sat at my table making a wreath, a light bulb went off, I already have a job. The previous year I had made over $62,000 just making wreaths alone. The best part was I could finally be home for my daughter.  

In October of that same year, after my third back surgery, I opened my group Inside Jackie’s Design Studio.  I guess this would be the point where I tell you about all the amazing things I have taught my group, but I would rather tell you about how amazing the people are in my group. It’s the things that they have asked me to teach that have made me a better designer and person.

My group has enriched and blessed my life so much, it made me work harder to give back to them everything they had given to me. Every chance that I could possibly get to meet them, I took. It didn’t matter if I was invited to participate in an event, bought a ticket, or hosted the event, I wanted to meet every member of the group that I possibly could.  

Over the years I have had 4 back surgeries, a constant battle with Lupus, and most recently been diagnosed with Sjogrens Syndrome. Despite my battles with health issues, I can still make a wreath, sew, and craft.

I have the most amazing support group ever: God, my husband Greg, daughter Tiffany, and friends. Because of them I have done things I have never dreamed of. While my health will prevent me from being multi-millionaire in this business, my health didn’t prevent me from being rich in family and friendships.

Kathy Dyer

Hi. I’m Kathy Dyer and I’ve been in the wreathing community for about 9 years. I started making wreaths after I went to a craft show and saw a beautiful wreath that I had to have. I wanted something pretty on my door for all seasons. Then it occurred to me that to do that and afford it, I would have to make it myself.

Back then, there were not many videos on wreath making. I had to gather as much information as possible, which was trial and error. My first wreath was not good! But I continued to make them and evolve my style. I sold to friends and neighbors and eventually got on Facebook, did lives, and made my hobby a small business. I’ve made and sold well over 1,200 wreaths! I am retired in Florida with my husband Bill and have 3 beautiful grandkids!

Check out Kathy on these platforms: Facebook

Inspire Your Next Wreath Creation

What a truly amazing group we have! We’re sure you’ll find these talented makers as inspiring as we do. Check out their latest designs and YouTube replays and you’ll see that getting started with wreath making really isn’t intimidating at all. From simple designs to more advanced creations, you’ll find a little bit of everything on our YouTube channel.

Step-by-Step Guide to Making a DIY Easter Wreath

Are you ready to make a fun and beautiful Easter wreath? We’re going to show you exactly how to get started with our step-by-step guide to DIY Easter wreath making!

Preparing for Easter is truly the gateway to spring and we can’t help but feel the excitement of the impending Easter season. In anticipation of the blossoming of the flowers and the brightening of the skies, it’s the perfect time of year to get creative and make some DIY home decor. 

Plus, there are so many options for how to approach Easter. Whether you choose to make a cross wreath as a tribute or create a cute Easter Bunny, chick, carrot, or a general floral wreath, the creative choices are endless.

Making a DIY Easter Wreath starts with our unique wreath making system:

1. Start with a UITC™ board 

Choose The Right Wreath Board For Your Creative Vision

Our wreath boards are made in a variety of shapes and sizes to support whatever your imagination would like to create! Any shape could work for your Easter wreath. Take a look at the full selection:

Step-by-Step Guide to Making a DIY Easter Wreath

The primary materials for your Easter wreath could be mesh or ribbon, or you might choose fabric or another type of material. The main materials that you choose will define the primary texture of your finished wreath. Around here, we are particularly fond of mesh because you can create such full-bodied texture for the base of your wreath.

We have so much mesh to choose from in our online shop that there’s just too much to show here, but we’ve included a few photos of some of the pink mesh that’s currently in stock. Click here to browse the full selection of mesh.

You can also add additional materials like ribbon as well as more accessories and finishing touches in Step 4. Here is just a small sampling of ribbon. Click here to browse the full selection of ribbon.

3. Use Zipties to Attach Your Materials to the Board

Here’s how the whole thing really comes together. Our wreath boards are fitted with strategically placed holes so that you can easily attach your materials to the board using zipties, aka cable ties. Let’s take a look at the process in action:

Here Laurie is using the Large Wreath Board to create a pink Easter bunny wreath. She starts by folding the mesh into the desired shape and then adds it to the board using zipties. You can see that she has preloaded the board with the zipties to speed up the process. Let’s see the next step:

Thanks to the clever positioning of the holes on the board, Laurie can fly through adding her mesh with zipties. The whole wreath really comes together quickly!

4. Add Accessories, Wreath Signs & Finishing Touches

To finish off this particular wreath, Laurie adds a bunny face sign. This is also easy with zipties.

Of course, you could add any type of finishing touches to your wreath! If you didn’t already use ribbon, you could attach some now. And were’ a big fan of wreath signs too!

We have so many Easter accessories in our shop, here is just a small selection:

Check out the full Easter shop here.

5. Beautiful Results Every time!

Bonus Resources

With our unique wreath making system, you’ll get beautiful results every time! We have an extensive YouTube playlist where you can follow along with Laurie in her live replays to see exactly how she makes a variety of DIY Easter wreaths.

Let’s take a look at how Laurie makes another of her very favourite DIY Easter designs: A classic Easter Bunny wreath made on the UITC Character Board.

First she adds the vinyl decal to the centre of the wreath:

Next she loads the board with zipties and starts to add her mesh:

She continues to add her accessories. Can’t forget those bunny ears!

How To Make An Ombre Wreath

If you’ve ever seen an absolutely gorgeous wreath hanging on someone’s door that has lovely shades of multiple colours fading from one to the next, you have probably seen one of our ombre wreath designs.

These wreath designs are gorgeous and impactful. You might be surprised to know that they’re also easy to make! Anyone at any skill level can make one. You might not believe that something so beautiful could be beginner-friendly, but it absolutely is.

Whether you’d like to make an ombre flower wreath, an ombre butterfly wreath, or another wreath design, all you need to get started is a UITC™ Wreath Board, three colours of mesh, and zipties and you’ll be well on your way to creating something incredible.

Ombre wreath designs are some of our very favourite designs for spring. You can incorporate so many different colour combinations to create something dynamic and simply lovely.

The three shades of mesh makes these wreath designs both soft with the fading colours and also vibrant. You could use a colour combination like orange, yellow and red for a fiery and bold wreath, or if you’re more of a pink and purple person you could create a more subtle palette. It doesn’t matter what colours you like best, any combination can work.

It all starts with our unique wreath making system:

1. Start with a UITC™ board.

2. Choose your materials; mesh, ribbon & more.

3. Use zipties to attach your materials to the board.

4. Add accessories, wreath signs & finishing touches.

5. Beautiful results every time!

Let’s See The Process In Action

Here’s a quick look at the process in action. Here Laurie is using the Large Wreath Board, also sometimes known as the Flower Board. She starts by folding the mesh into the desired shape for this wreath. Then she adds the first layer of petals to the board using zipties.

It doesn’t take long before the entire board is covered in the beautiful shades of mesh that she picked out.

Before you know it, she’s adding the final petals and flower centre to the board.

Isn’t the result beautiful?

Take a look at this wreath Laurie made as a 9/11 tribute. The contrasting colours also work in an ombre palette:

With so many wreath boards to choose from in every shape and size, the possibilities are as endless as your imagination!

Ocean Inspired Ombre Flower Wreath

Let’s take a quick look at Laurie making an ocean inspired ombre wreath using the Large Wreath Board. First, you can see how she uses zipties to put down the first layer of mesh.

She continues the same technique moving around the board to build the layers of flower petals.

The resulting flower is full, dynamic, and really beautiful. This would look fantastic with so many color palettes!

Ombre Butterfly Wreath

Creating a beautiful ombre butterfly wreath starts out the same way. In this case, Laurie has used the UITC Wing Board. She loads the board with zipties and then starts to add the mesh.

Here she is going in with the second shade of purple mesh.

As a finishing touch, she adds a body to the centre of the butterfly. We have all sorts of attachments you can add to your wreaths using zipties. You can click here to find an insect body for your wreath.

Battle The Winter Blues By Making A Cheerful Wreath

The winter months of January to March can be difficult for many people. The winter blues can be a real hard truth. It’s not surprising – the weather is cold and unpleasant, and the days are so short. For lots of people, the end of the holiday season can be hard, too. In fact, the third Monday in January is commonly referred to as Blue Monday. Although there isn’t much hard science to back up this day as being the most depressing of the year, the winter seasons after the holidays are known for being the hardest for many people.

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) impacts a lot of people during these months. SAD is a type of depression associated with changes in seasons. It can make you feel exhausted, tearful, depressed, and generally very low. Some people experience it more than others. 

Fight Back Against the Blues

If you’re looking to battle the winter blues, taking care of yourself is important. Experts recommend you don’t worry about setting yourself major new year’s resolutions that are challenging. Instead, focus on simple self care, and fit some fun and positive activities into your daily routine. That’s where crafting projects and DIY wreath making can really be a balm to the soul!

Focus on Self Care

The dark days of winter mean you probably aren’t getting enough sunlight That’s certainly true where Unique in the Creek is based in the Niagara Region of Canada. The grey skies are strongly linked with seasonal affective disorder, and can really make you feel low. 

A bit of colour around the house can really do wonders for your mood. While fresh flowers are nice, we all know how quickly they can die. That’s why making a flower wreath is so nice! You don’t have to water it and one wreath is impactful enough to equal a giant bouquet of flowers. Colour plays a strong role in emotions so this is a great time of year to make a bright pink, red, or yellow flower wreath for maximum impact. 

Looking forward to something, and planning fun activities or events help focus you on more positive times, to pull through the darker, dismal days. That could be something big, like planning a vacation, but planning crafting and wreath projects for spring and Easter can be equally as effective for your mood. 

Focus on Fun

Getting a little colour in your life and home is a great way to beat the blues, and experts suggest it’s actually surprisingly effective. Pair that with a creative activity that you enjoy and you can double down on the winter blues. 

Set aside a little time for yourself for some hands-on creativity. We recommend making a beautiful DIY flower wreath. It could be our signature rose, a sunflower wreath, a daisy, or another favourite flower. The resulting wreath will brighten up your home, and you’ll have fun doing it. Every time you look at it, you can feel proud knowing you made it yourself with your own hands and that satisfaction can also be great for your mood 

Hobbies keep you busy when it’s yucky out and doing something for yourself really does help you feel better. Crafts and wreath making are especially good for mental health. In fact, research indicates that crafts of any type improve your mood and self-confidence, while lowering stress overall. Win:win!

You can see why crafts like these beautiful flower wreaths are great for bolstering your mood. They look cheery, and will remind you of springtime to come. (Looking forward to things is another way experts recommend combating winter and seasonal depression). 

Be sure to check out our Wreath Kits to see what flowers and designs are currently in stock. 

Mood Boosting Activities in Winter

Wreath making is a great way to create a bit of “you time”, and that’s good for your mental health and spiritual health. It’s so easy to focus on responsibilities to everyone else, but trust us when we say that it’s important to prioritize yourself too.

In addition to decorating your own home, it can feel great to give at this time of year. You’re not the only one who is feeling low at this time of year. Perk up a friend who is also fighting the winter blues by making a wreath for their home. They’ll appreciate the thoughtfulness, and you can feel good about it too, while enjoying the wreath making process.  

So perk yourself up, and get wreathing! A flower wreath will make you feel boosted in no time.

Just getting started? You’ll find everything you need in our shop and be sure to check out our YouTube channel for hundreds of free tutorials and replays so you can follow along and learn our unique wreath making process.

And remember, you’re feeling depressed, be sure to talk to someone. You don’t have to go it alone.

Giving Back to the Community – Wreaths for Nursing Homes

The Christmas and holiday season can be difficult for some people in under-served parts of our community. We’re especially thinking about nursing home residents. For some people, it may be their first Christmas in a nursing home and away from their family. And with the seasonal rise in increased health precautions, many residents may not be able to see their families at all. 

The Last Few Years Have Been Rough!

Thinking about the last couple of Covid Christmases, the holiday season has really changed for nursing home residents. It can be a really sad and lonely time. So if anyone could use a little cheer, we think it’s them. 

Despite all the challenges, experts and nursing home carers emphasize that it’s important for their residents to mark the celebration, acknowledging and celebrating it, even if it’s limited. And that’s where your beautiful handmade wreaths made with love can come in. 

A Gesture Close to Our Hearts

If you’ve been following along with Laurie for a few years, you’ll know that this is an effort close to her heart. 

A great way to make a nursing home feel more “homey” over the holidays is to make a homemade wreath or centrepiece to spread cheer and make the nursing home look more festive. 

Donating a wreath (or two or more) is such a thoughtful gesture and means the world for these residents. Giving a little of your time and effort to the people in a nursing home in your area can turn a potentially stressful and dark time into the bright and happy time it’s supposed to be. 

Put A Smile On Some Faces

Just think about how every time the residents look at your wreath it will put a smile on their face. Your time and caring can make them feel included, cared for, and remembered – and that’s exactly what the Christmas season is supposed to be all about!

If you have a parent, grandparent, or loved one in a home, you could choose to give some wreaths there, or you could find a residence in your local area. Either way, this is your chance to make the holiday season a little more special for them. Just think about the holiday cheer you could spread to don’t have any family. We promise you, any caring gesture you make over the holidays would be appreciated.

A beautiful, hand-made wreath shows those in a nursing home that they haven’t been forgotten and that someone cares about them. They’ll so appreciate the thoughtfulness and love that went into creating your homemade DIY wreath. 

One of the great things about a Christmas wreath is that it can brighten up a whole common area, becoming a point of conversation for the residents. Lots of people will be able to see what you’ve made and be cheered by it, too. 

Your creativity and effort will show you care, and it has the side benefit of getting you more into the Christmas spirit!

Think Local

If you are donating to nursing homes where you do not know anyone, but want to bring joy to everyone, check with your local nursing home to ensure they are accepting decorations. Most will be happy to hear from you but it’s always good to double check. Nursing home caretakers appreciate your efforts too, as they know how much it will mean to their residents.

This can also be an opportunity for your whole family to get crafty together and then deliver the finished wreaths as a special activity in the right holiday spirit. 

Check online for nursing homes near you that could benefit from your time and care. has additional resources to help you.

We’d Love To See Photos 📷

Please, if you do share wreaths with your local nursing home residents, we would love to see photos! Join the Unique Wreath Creators group and drop some pictures for us. It would mean so much to Laurie and all of the team here.
