My Christmas decor this year was inspired by Renoir and has a French, modern-bohemian vibe that features black and white stripes, florals, and lots of greens and blues.

Start with a basic artificial pine wreath or strip down an outdated Christmas wreath. You’ll also need:

  • White spray paint
  • Floral stems
  • Pinecones
  • Faux berries
  • Faux leaf stems
  • Hot-glue gun with sticks
  • Florist wire

I was thinking about flocking the wreath but since I had white spray paint on hand I decided to lighten the dark pine wreath and pinecones with a “dusting” of paint. It worked like a charm and only needed one light coat. If you try this with yours, make sure to let the wreath sit for a few minutes until it is dry to the touch.

Hot glue a grouping of pinecones at the top of your wreath. Start with larger cones and don’t be afraid to layer smaller ones on top so it looks fuller.

Once you have a quarter of your wreath covered add in a faux leaf stem on each side for an extra embellishment. Stick to silver-tone stems like lambs ear or eucalyptus to add to the frosted look.

Attach a few single pinecones around the rest of the wreath and then place in floral and berry stems in various sizes and colors.

I used 3 berry picks, 2 large pink flower heads, and 6 small pink flower stems secured with florist wire.

You can hang the wreath on your front door or try on an interior door, mirror, or shelf.
