We’re just a little over a week from Thanksgiving but with days whizzing by so fast, now’s as good a time as any to get a jump on decorating for Christmas. One of the staples most of us have is the wreath, which helps us usher in the spirit of the holidays along with guests we have over for the season’s festivities. Over the years, wreath designs have evolved well beyond the traditional foliage, fruits, and ribbons to take on all shapes, styles, and themes imaginable. Here are some of the more whimsical and unique pieces you can grab to send as Christmas presents or hang to spruce up your homes.
1. Mickey & Minnie Disney Wreath
Great for anyone who loves Mickey and Minnie Mouse, this adorable wreath brings the magic of a Disney Christmas to any home. About 24 inches in diameter, it is made with red and black mesh together with yellow mesh accents for a pop of color here and there. Polka dot ribbons in red/white, yellow/white, and red/black combinations add to the festive design and of course, there’s Mickey on one side and his dear Minnie on the other. The Mickey and Minnie ‘Welcome’ adds the perfect touch to truly usher in family, friends, and guests over the holiday season. Wonderful for your own home or as a Christmas gift to the Disney fans in your life, get it on Etsy.

Christmas doesn’t seem complete without at least one snowman piece of décor.

3. Felt Pom Pom Wreath
For something fluffy, fun, and away from the typical, how about a wreath made up of hundreds of wool felt balls in a vibrant array of colors. Imagine 300 fuzzy spheroids each measuring two centimeters held tightly together to form a pom pom party for your wall, window, above your mantel, or on your door. Available in two wreath sizes – 11.5 inches (29 centimeters) or 14 inches (34 centimeters) on Etsy, with an option for ordering one that’s 18 inches (45 centimeters) here.

4. Fun and Funky yet Traditional Christmas Wreath
For those inclined toward the more traditional, here’s a great option that sticks to familiar Christmas elements we’ve come to love. Using an assortment of ribbon prints including poinsettias, snowflakes, plaids, and candy cane stripes, along with Yuletide balls also in various designs, it really evokes the spirit of past Christmases we all treasure. Measuring 24 inches, it’s best hung under a covered porch or patio to keep it away from direct exposure to the elements. Shop this on Etsy.
Buyer’s Review: “I ordered this wreath in a little larger size to fill our door way—- it is absolutely stunning and I can hardly wait to hang. Very classic and carefully made- I was NOT disappointed! I put a 14 inch spoon on one photo so you can see how large and beautiful this was unpacking. Very happy!” – Maria Cain
5. Farmhouse Christmas Wreath
For a bit of rustic charm, this Farmhouse Christmas Wreath is perfect with its grapevine base, pine cones, assorted greenery, and cotton. Measuring about six inches deep and 20 inches in diameter, each wreath can be fully customized according to you favorite style, blooms, and colors, even including options of mirror images for double doors, or monograms added to the design. Order this or have another one custom-made here.
“This wreath was a gift for my husband’s cousin and his wife. They love it! I would definitely order from this shop again!” – Sharon Freeman
“This wreath is spectacular! I really like the color options in this wreath instead of the usual browns, oranges, and yellows that are usually seen in wreaths at this time of year. The seller was particularly helpful with storage ideas. The order came right on time. I will definitely be ordering from this seller again.” – Kristin Fields
6. Rustic Pine Cone Christmas Wreath
For an even more rustic alternative, how about this wreath made up almost exclusively of pine cones. Assembled by hand, it comes in three sizes to fit any size window, door, or wall space. The small one measures 7.9 x 7.9 inches (20 x 20 centimeters). The medium is 11 x 11 inches (28 x 28 centimeters), and the large one is 15 x 15 inches (38 x 38 centimeters). Ideal for your own home, it also makes a wonderful Christmas gift especially for friends who love the country look. Gift box is even included. Shop this in time for the holidays on Etsy.

“The wreaths are so warming! I’m reminded of campfires, hikes and nature just by looking at them! A great reminder of the outdoors, indoors. I feel so lucky to have stumbled onto these! Awesome find! Thank you so much.” – Christopher
7. Straw Flower Wreath
Equally rocking the country vibe, this wreath made entirely of straw is perfect for those who like natural materials and muted tones. Materials collected at the time of flowering and because the finished product has such an organic look, it’s perfect not just for Christmas but for use all year long. Interestingly, each of the elements that make up the wreath stand for something. Rye is for life, oats for wealth, flax represents health, poppy protects against the evil eye, and the circular shape means a strong and friendly family. Get it for your home or as an all occasion gift from Etsy.
Buyer’s Review: “This wreath is just beautiful! Unique & much ‘softer’ than I expected – not brittle at all. It arrived in wonderful condition & much more quickly than expected.” – martha6688
8. Sheet Music Paper Wreath
Here’s a truly unique take on the wreath, and one musicians or music lovers are sure to love – designs made chiefly from the pages of antique music books. By antique, we’re talking the 1930s or older. Measuring approximately 1.5 inches deep and about 12 to 13 inches in diameter, each wreath is created with a back side just as pristine as its front so it can be hung on a transparent surface or a mirror without fear of an unsightly rear. Its center is a paper rose carefully handcrafted from Kraft cardstock and sheet music. And because the entire item is made of paper, it should only be hung indoors or behind a storm door. Order yours from Etsy.
“Beautiful addition to decor above my piano! A few spots were bent from shipping but they easily straightened out. Love it!” – lyseileen44
“Some of the papers were bent from shipping but I was able to shape them back. The wreath is beautiful and was gifted to a local artist. He loved it and will be hanging it in his studio. Thanks!” – Rebekah Lamb
9. Edible Fruit-Flavored Candy Wreath
Now here’s a wreath many of us would totally be all over – 400, yes that’s 400 pieces of assorted fruit-flavored hard candies waiting to be unwrapped and enjoyed. If you can resist eating them yourself, then they’d make wonderful holiday gifts to loved ones, especially those with a sweet tooth. Measuring 12 inches across, each wreath holds over three pounds of tasty treats and can either be hung on doors, windows, or walls, or placed flat as a centerpiece on a table. Get this delectable, one-of-a-kind, conversation piece for your home or office from Etsy.
“Sent this to my Granddaughter for Valentine’s Day. This is her second one. Christmas was the first. It is a big hit at her dorm!!! She hangs it on her door for all to share. Shipping is very speedy and packaging is immaculate!! Not a candy out of place!!! Very satisfied!!!!” – Carol Smith

10. Harry Potter Wreath
Finally, here’s one for Potterheads – a wreath inspired by the beloved books from J.K. Rowling. Made with natural wood, pine cones, and birch, it measures 13.4 x 13.4 inches (34 x 34 centimeters) and comes with its own gift box. Great for any Harry Potter fan, it’s available from Etsy.
