Full Answer

Battery operated LED lights, large bows in Christmas colors and spray glitter can be added to the wreath to make it a Christmas wreath. An evergreen is a type of tree that is most commonly seen during the Christmas season, and a pre-made evergreen wreath will be easy to come by during the holiday season. Many people choose to put these evergreen wreaths on their front doors or other areas for decoration, but the addition of embellishments can make the wreath much more festive.

For people who do not want to purchase a pre-made evergreen wreath or do not wish to have an artificial wreath that can be reused, a wreath can be made out of the sprigs of an evergreen tree. Depending on the size of the wreath, the sprigs can be sewn, weaved or glued onto a wreath form. The sprigs should all be facing one direction and should be in a logical pattern with space for extras to be added.
