Next Holiday Trivia: Did you know that the lyrics to the classic holiday song are actually “dress the hall” instead of “the halls?” Yes, only one hall

Just a little Christmas carol trivia for you from the musician’s past.

But speaking of decorating the hall, I’ve rounded up fun modern Christmas wreaths to inspire anyone who likes to be festive but in a slightly understated way.

I love the modern geometric touch, especially with some air plants here and there. And they’re incredibly easy to make!

Supplies you’ll need

Minimal supplies are needed for this modern Christmas wreath!

You can also substitute a lot of these materials if you have something similar. For example, replace brush acrylic paint with spray paint.

You can also replace other items with the wooden shapes, such as a wooden board, Scrabble tile, or any flat item you have in your craft stash.

How to make a modern Christmas wreath

Time allotment: 30 minutes per wreath (plus drying time)

diy, geometric, holiday, air, plant wreaths, tutorial
  1. Lay your wooden rectangles on a piece of cardboard and spray paint your favorite holiday colors. Leave some unpainted as well. Allow them to dry well.
  2. On cardboard or scratch paper, draw an outline of the shape you want your wreath to look like. We have drawn an equilateral triangle, each side 12 inches long.
  3. Start by gluing the pieces together using the shape you drew as a template. Use a glue gun to glue the pieces together one by one. I recommend mixing unpainted pieces with painted pieces to get a random look. Place some pieces on top of them and some pieces under their neighbors so the wreath doesn’t twist.
  4. Continue tracing the outline you drew until your pieces form a complete wreath.
  5. Apply the control hook to the wall according to the instructions on the package and hang your wreaths.
  6. Get some air plants and place them between the geometric tiles on your wreaths. They shouldn’t need to be glued or glued in any way – just let the tendrils of the air plants wrap around the tiles and they should adhere well.

Display a holiday wreath

As you decorate the hall, there are several ways you can choose to display your modern Christmas wreath.

I show them here hanging from control hooks. This post was sponsored by Command but I had been using these hooks long before I worked with the brand.

It’s one of the supplies I use for holiday decorating because it’s temporary and doesn’t damage the walls. Highly recommended.

Other options for display? Place them on your fireplace mantel or on a bar cart, or even place one on your front door using a hanger or wreath hook.

Looks great everywhere! happy vacation. xoxo
