I love creating. There’s something particularly gratifying by making something with your own two hands and having it grace your home or gifting it to a friend. I am so excited to share how to spruce up a basic Christmas wreath today with a few Christmas wreath decorations!

Christmas wreaths are easily accessible and inexpensive at stores like Trader Joe’s, Home Depot and Lowe’s, but they often feel a little flat and lackluster because they’re stacked for shipment and somewhat sparse to keep the price point low.

I created a little video to share how easy it is to add Christmas wreath decorations {see above}. You can use any flowers or greens, but I chose thistle and eucalyptus since I had a little extra lying around from a flower arrangement and they tend to look beautiful for an extended period of time.

Adding in a few snips of greenery makes a basic Christmas wreath feel a lot more special. It’s amazing what a few minutes can do!

I started enhancing my wreaths because those I really love are $75-200 {Williams Sonoma and Restoration Hardware overwhelm me with their beautiful designs}. Updating an existing evergreen wreath is easy and inexpensive – a wreath form is usually $5 and half the work is already done for you. If you want to design a wreath from start to finish you can create a simple eucalyptus wreath without a lot of effort.

Prep Time 4 minutes
Total Time 4 minutes
Servings 1


  • 4-5 stems greenery {eucalyptus}
  • flowers or 1 stem of thistle
  • 1 basic wreath


  • Trim stems of greenery leaving 1-2″ of stem to insert into the wreath. For eucalyptus, 6-8″ overall.
  • Work your way around the wreath inserting stems in the same direction as existing stems, tucking them under the evergreen until they feel secure. Keep in mind you can readjust spacing any time. That’s the best part – you get easy do-overs!
  • Trim flower stems or thistle to 4″ tucking them in at varying widths to stagger, again, in the same direction as existing stems. Insert them until almost flush.
