Burgundy and Lime Green Christmas Wreath



I love burgundy - especially when used in Christmas decorating.  To me, burgundy Christmas decorations always seem like they're from another century.  I don't know why... feels to me like a colour from bygone days somehow.

I've been searching for a Christmas wreath that I liked but I didn't like any of the prices, so I decided to make my own.  I had these grapevine wreaths and a box of glittered fruit in my stash of Christmas decorations and I bought a roll of canvas ribbon with sequins along the edges.








Some cinnamon pine cones, cinnamon sticks and a ribbon from a Poinsettia I bought last Christmas and voilà!  A simple wreath in lime green and burgundy that turned out much better than expected.  Don't you love it when that happens??




22 days til Christmas!

  2. HI Anne,
    Love the glittery fruit, and that green is so pretty!
    I love how natural it all looks with the grapevine wreath and the pinecones and cinnamon sticks!
    And you are right, the cost of a wreath can be crazy, and yours is so much nicer than anything you could buy!
    Happy almost weekend! Hugs, Kimberley

  8. Anne, yours is my all time favorite blog! We just love to see what wonderfully creative thing you've done next. What a precious wreath! We think you would make a fabulous design "consultant". Back in our home state, women charged $150/hour to come to someone's home and make suggestions for decorating ideas. This was for people who didn't want to pay the exorbitant prices of hiring an interior designer. They also paid $150/hour or a flat fee for a talented person to put up their tree and decorate it, using the home owners decorations. As people get older, it is more difficult to decorate a tree and our home for the holidays. Can't wait to see what you create next. Bev

  12. You're right, burgundy makes me think of Victorian Christmas. Your wreath is really great, it's different from anything I've seen this year.

  13. Your wreath is so pretty Anne. I like how you wrapped ribbon around bundles of cinnamon sticks. The color combination is so pretty too. Pinned to share!

  14. That is pretty, Anne! The green really gives a nice pop. Burgundy reminds me of elegance and history too. Like a richly upholstered velvet carriage seat or ball gown. Can you tell I read lots of romance novels lol.

  16. Very pretty, Anne. For years I used burgundy instead of the usual red at Christmas. I like how you paired it with the lime green. I've got two more wreaths to finish for our back and studio doors. I have some of the same elements you used. Now I'm inspired. Thanks for sharing. xo

  17. The lime green is one of my favorite colors and it pairs very nicely with burgundy. It certainly does have a Victorian feel or something you might find at Downton (before all the drama took place, lol).
