I had some fun with the holiday decor at Lowe’s Canada and created this Comfort & Joy Wreath! A perfect way to decorate your front door and greet your guests this holiday season!

Wreaths are such a lovely way to greet guests that arrive at your home over the holiday season. But sometimes it’s hard to find just the right wreath in stores, so why not make your own? The great thing about making your own wreath is the ability to tailor the colours and style to reflect your own home. And really there are no rules with wreath making because it’s all about what appeals to you! There are so many options. I find that once you have a theme and an idea of the colours you want, the rest is easy.
I have been busy making wreaths this holiday season because I love them so much, and so far I have made a Winter Wonderland Yarn Wreath, a Vintage Truck Evergreen Wreath, and now this Comfort & Joy Wreath. The more wreaths the better I say!
Making wreaths, especially wreaths with evergreen bases, is so easy. It’s kind of like decorating a mini Christmas tree. Christmas ornaments are just the right size and shape for hanging on wreaths, not to mention the many different options to choose from! For this Comfort & Joy Wreath I chose ornaments from Lowe’s Comfort & Joy holiday decor line and had a great time putting it all together!
I love the rustic look and traditional colour scheme of this wreath! The Buffalo check plaid, the vintage truck, wooden snowshoes and holly berries, all come together perfectly in this pretty, and easy to make wreath!
Supplies Required to Make A Comfort & Joy Wreath:
- One wreath base (either fresh or pre-lit)
- Tree ornaments: these are all from the Lowe’s Comfort & Joy line
How to Assemble
- Hang your wreath base on a wreath hook and fluff the branches so the wreath isn’t flat, and the branches are as full as possible.
- Hang the ornaments in groups of 3 for the best visuals. Spread them out almost in a triangle pattern from each other, so they are equidistant.
- To hang the ornaments I used the twine hanging loops that came with the ornaments, because the twine tied in nicely with the theme of the wreath. To secure the ornaments, instead of hanging them on the branches, I tied them on.
- Continue to tie on the ornaments until you feel that the wreath is full enough. I wanted this wreath to be quite full, so I added quite a few ornaments.
- I also tucked in some sprigs of holly berries that I cut off from a holly spray that I also bought at Lowe’s.
- Then to finish the wreath off, tie a large bow at the base of the wreath, making sure to leave some length in the bow so it hangs low.
- Step back and admire your masterpiece!
I hope I have inspired you to make your own wreath this Christmas season! Just have fun with it, and you will end up with something you love.
Have a very Merry day!
