Tips on Christmas Wreath Decor
In truth, it’s impossible to imagine Christmas without the festive wreath. It’s not just one of door or wall Christmas decorations, it has already become a symbol of the holiday. While, initially, it was used for front door decor only, nowadays, it’s quite widespread to place it on the doors inside the house as well as Christmas wall hangings.
Traditionally, a Christmas wreath is made of pine or any other evergreen plant and berries. However, today, the choice of the possible designs is innumerable.

Moreover, it’s not necessary to use fresh evergreens anymore as you are free to buy a cute artificial wreath.

If you seek for more creative variants, you can adorn Christmas wall and door with the wreaths of various shapes, from the tree and heart to the silhouettes of animals.
The colors may be also different. The classic wreath is made with the colors of red, green, white or purple, which symbolize Jesus’ blood, life, joy and sacrifice or forgiveness. But, if you want, you may break the traditions and buy a wreath in other colors. It can even be in one color. Also, a wreath may be decorated according to a certain style, for instance shabby chic, vintage or rustic wreaths may become great Christmas wall decor.

How to Use Posters and Other Prints for Christmas Wall Decor?
Merry Christmas Poster
Just a couple of decades ago, it was hard to imagine a poster as one of wall decorations for Christmas at home. The posters were used for wishing Merry Christmas at many places, including offices, cafes and other public places, but a few people used them at homes.
Today, the situation has changed. Posters have become rather a widespread home adornment for Christmas. They are liked for their large sizes, affordable prices and the opportunity of being used several times. They can be used at any room from the entryway to bathroom. However, in the latter case, we recommend to place the print under the glass as high humidity may spoil it.
Funny Snowman Poster
In nursery, the majority of people place the images with cartoon Santa, reindeer, snowmen and other funny pictures. In bedroom, you can hang the prints with Christmas tree, balls, garlands, snowmen or funny prints, for instance, a photo of a dog, dressed in the costume of Santa Claus.
In addition, the print can be dedicated to a certain theme, if you prefer thematic Christmas decor. For example, if you are going to dedicate it to a certain movie (like “Home Alone” or “Christmas Carol”), the movie poster will be the best solution. Moreover, you may order custom prints and get personalized wall decor. For instance, the photo of your family in the Christmas costumes will look cool in any room.
By the way, it’s not obligatory to choose 44″ x 34″ or 33.1″ x 23.4″ prints. The small pictures look no worse than large Christmas wall decorations. Clearly, the choice of the proper size depends on the place, where you are going to place the print. If it’s a nursery, a series of small pictures will look cute and if you want to decorate the empty wall above the armchairs, a large print may look better.
What to Do with Lights and Candles?
