Start thinking of your Christmas wreath ideas and something green, pine-covered and circular will probably spring to mind. It’s time to think again. While Christmases past have seen creative and experimental takes on the Christmas tree – bright colors, surprising shapes and with built in technologies – the wreath has tended to remain a little more under the radar, out of sight out of mind perhaps with its position on the front door.
For Christmas 2021, forget your Christmas tree ideas (or at least don’t think of them for now). Instead, the wreath is becoming the star of the show, moving inside from its lofty outdoor perch, or at least making an unforgettable impression before we step inside. This year, wreaths are all about sustainability, creativity and whimsicality, with experimental palettes, configurations, materials and approaches to styling reinventing the festive wheel. We talk to the experts about the 2021 Christmas wreath trends and how to live with them.
