One of the reasons I love the holidays is for all the amazing smells and textures that I associate with them. The branches and smell of pine of the Christmas tree, the sweet clementines piled high on the table, mulled wine on the stove, cookies baking in the oven. So this year I want my decorations full of the smells and textures of the holidays. Jump below for a roundup of my favorite all natural wreaths.
• 1. Fresh Protea Wreath from Wild Ridge Organics will last a long time and is a nice alternative to evergreen wreaths, $65 plus shipping.
• 2. Eucalyptus Wreath via Sunset Magazine. Follow their 4 steps to a perfect wreath to create a wreath from your garden cuttings.
• 3. Citrus Wreath from Real Simple adds some bright color to the decorations. Also see some other ways to use citrus to decorate.
• 4. Lavender and Rosemary Wreath from the Animal Rescue Site, $45 and proceeds go to helping shelter animals.
• 5. Classic Bay Leaf Wreath: this is one of our favorites because it's full, it's usable, it's fragrant and it's super simple.
• 6. Succulent Wreath: These have become a classic. We love this one from etsy seller Succulents Galore for $48 plus shipping, or you can try your hand at making one yourself.
• 7. Rosemary Wreath from Martha Stewart. Follow her directions to make any fragrant wreath using herbs, bay leaves or dried citrus.
• 8. Organic Bay and Chilli Wreath: red and green, fragrant and useful in the kitchen. We love this compact wreath from FayeMarie for $30.
