Home How-To Winter Pick-Me-Up

We love festive decorations, but this year, there’s something about a subdued, sophisticated take on the holidays that’s right up our alley. We present Exhibit A: these wreaths from the December 2011 issue of House & Home. Neutral, simple, textural, and complementary to a wide range of styles, they to combine our desire for natural beauty with sophisticated elegance. Bonus: they’re inexpensive to make. (Hey, we have our priorities, and right now, we’d rather chuck our bucks at fun gifts—of both the for-them and for-us variety.)

I just purchased the December, 2011 issue of House & Home Magazine which is published in South Louisiana, but the article on the wreaths was not in the issue. I called the magazine, and they told me that there are actually three other magazines with the same name, “House and Home” ! Could you please provide me with contact information for the correct magazine with the article on these wreaths. Thanks very much.

Hi Ellen,

So sorry for the confusion! This article is from Canadian House & Home (http://houseandhome.com/), and you can actually find the instructions for most of these wreaths right on their website: http://houseandhome.com/search/content/DIY%20Wreath

Please let us know if you have any more questions, and Happy Holidays!

I love all these wreaths. I’m in school right now, so I don’t have much discretionary time to create, but once I have completed my studies, I would love to make the snowflake pine cone wreath. My mother was very creative and use to make the prettiest wreaths. Thank you for the memories. She would use pine cones for everything!
