 Creative Ways to Use Christmas Wreath

I love thinking of ways to use Christmas decorations in multiple ways to get more bang for my buck. Today I am sharing creative ways to use a Christmas Wreath. 

This Nearly Natural olive leaf wreath with olives and red berries is absolutely perfect for any area in your home.

I love the look olive leaves for a few reasons

We have spent time in Italy over the last couple of years and we walked through many olive tree orchards and this brings back such sweet memories. 

We also own an Italian palace over there and we are in the process of restoring it! 

When I saw this Olive leaf wreath I just had to have it!

The branches of this Olive leaf wreath are very realistic looking to me as are the little olives and red berries. I really wanted a light and airy look and this wreath really hit the mark for me. 

Some wreaths out there are a little too stiff and thick and this just has a more natural look and feel to it. Nearly Natural has a huge selection of all kinds of beautiful wreaths, garlands and Christmas trees

Hot Chocolate Bar Surrounded By A Christmas Wreath

Create a Hot Chocolate bar surrounded by a Christmas wreath. I placed the Olive leaf wreath in the middle of the table and added a footed cake stand to the center of the wreath. 

You could use a white or a more natural looking cake stand or even a red cake stand. I tried white and a natural stand. I liked both of them against the green olive leaves on the wreath.

On top of the cake stand I displayed some Hot chocolate goodies! 

In a tall slender glass vase I added fluffy white marshmallows for easy grabbing. 

I put my hot chocolate mix in a cute shaped bottle that is easy to pour into mugs. 

Two small bowls with Christmas sprinkles that have small silver mini sized spoons in them.

One glass filled with peppermint sticks to use as stirrers for the hot chocolate.

Hang Christmas Wreath On A Large Chalkboard

In our dining room that you might remember we recently updated, I have a large chalkboard hanging above my sideboard. 

It is the perfect place to write out the menu if I am having a dinner party, writing Happy Birthday, Happy Valentine's day or to hang a Christmas wreath!

Using my chalkboard like this sets the tone for whatever we are celebrating at the time. 

I simply tied the Olive leaf wreath with a darling black and white striped ribbon and hung the wreath at the top of the chalkboard. 

I had my daughter write Happy Holidays curved underneath the wreath on the chalkboard.

The black chalkboard really allows the leaves, olives and red berries to stand out! 

Using Olive Leave Wreath as a Centerpiece 

In my dining room you might remember we added a new planked top to an old antique table that we have had in our family for many years. With this new addition this table is nice and long and I can seat all the family around it. 

I love to create centerpieces that are pretty and that everyone can see over.

There is nothing worse than having a huge centerpiece that blocks the view of the people sitting across from you.

My Olive leaf Christmas wreath is perfect because it sits low in the center of the table but adds the perfect Christmas touch. 

By adding a red footed cake stand and flanking it on either side with clear hurricane vases it is not only beautiful but functional.

I think I will probably add lots of different heights of candles to the cake stand so that the whole room will be lit up with glowing candles. 

Hanging Wreath On Front Door

Of course how could I not show this beautiful Olive Leaf red berry wreath on my front door! It is the natural place for any wreath to be displayed.

Adding the black and white striped ribbon and hanging it below the glass panes against my white door has got to be my favorite decoration of all time! 

Light and airy and pretty! How could you want anything more?
