Phew, that was close!

I'm clearly NaBloPoMo'd out.

Any suggestions on how to prettify these wreaths without going overboard?

Pin It!

they look great as they are but if you need to do something I suggest some gold babbles or red if you can get something like the doors...

They are beautiful, but you could add a ribbon.

Just add some red or white berries by tucking the sprigs into the greenery. That would be really pretty, and keep the natural feel of the wreaths. Love the pinecones!

I was thinking along the same lines as joyful abode--red berries--the fake ones would be okay as long as they're just berries--no leaves! They'll really pop since you have a red door. You could use red wooden beads instead of berries.

I bought ribbon yeaterday at TJ Maxx that would look perfect--creamy background with pinecones printed on it. I'm planning to make wreaths like yours!

Gold bows!

I love your red doors!

I think I'd add a black bow or white and black patterned bow. I like the red berry idea too. I wouldn't do a red bow though with the door.

With the color of the doors and house, I would suggest simple tartan plaid bows tied either at the top or (my favorite) the bottom of each wreath.

What a beautiful door! I also think a black and white or a tartan plaid bow tied on the bottom would look fantastic.

a small white bow and white, simple snowflakes will look adorable and are surely not "too much", but also not too understated.
love those doors! wish i had those myself :)

i think a wide satin ribbon, looped under the top and up over the top of your door - in a chocolate brown or chartreuse that will play nicely with the doors and your house.

Something red.
You have a beautiful entry.

I was thinking of the red holly berries, they would definitely add to the wreath.

I actually like the simple elegance of these the way they are. Subtle and very pretty against the red doors.

Happy holidays!

If you don't mind it taking a while, string some cranberries. I *just* saw this by Guru Martha two minutes before I read your door post...
