Christmas Wreaths in Singapore


If you were of the impression that Christmas commemoration would be lacklustre and bland if it is not observed in a traditional setting, then you just need to head to Singapore. You’ll be simply appalled by the fervour and enthusiasm with which Yuletide is celebrated in a country which is smaller than most nations on earth.
Though you’d be missing the snowfall or the Yule logs burning in the fireplace but they’ll be more than made up by lighting displays and shows, colourful ceremonies and parties that are held in every nook and cranny in the city.

However, if you want you can still celebrate Christmas in the time-honoured way by decorating a Christmas tree with all the trappings, dressing your children in Santa suits, hanging Christmas stockings and placing Christmas wreaths at the entrance and windows. Talking of Christmas wreaths irrespective of whether you position them inside or hang them outside, lend a special touch to the ambience.

Regardless of whether you make your own wreaths or buy them from the market, try to be innovative. You can opt for DIY projects using ribbons, flowers, corks, balls, cookies, fabrics, craft papers, gums, and the like. You can also source your wreaths from a flower boutique or floral shop in Singapore that supply wreaths made out of fresh flowers and twigs of evergreen trees, and artificial ones made from ribbons, stars, balls, and synthetic flowers. You can hang them or place them wherever you feel like from the coffee table to the cupboard and from the windows to the porch.

Christmas Wreath Ideas

Oval Wreath-Impart a customized appeal to your wreaths by making them elliptical or oval shaped. You’d just need to stretch or draw out the round ones to get the oblate shape. Place it high enough on your entrance door so that it is visible from a distance.

Pinecone Wreath- Buy a grapevine wreath and source some 10-15 pinecones either artificial or original. Position the cones in a circular pattern on the wreath maintaining equal distance between them. Thereafter affix the pinecones with florist strings or wires. Embellish the arrangement further by attaching garlands and small pinecones in the vacant spaces and in between the larger pinecones. You can place these wreaths on the windows.

Christmas Wreaths
      
Colonial Wreath- Give a colonial touch to your Christmas decorations by using natural ingredients. Twigs, seeds, and leaves of fir, birch, pine, redwood, cedar, mistletoe, and ivy were used by the British during their reign in Singapore in the 19th and early 20th centuries. To recreate the original look, you can use these materials as bases in your wreaths.

Magnolia Wreath- Wreaths made of magnolia have an urbane Southern look about them. Unlike wreaths made out of pine, magnolia wreaths don’t release needless that might make the surroundings look messy. Hang them on the entrance gate or on the ledges of your windows or suspend them from the ceiling.

Acorn Wreath- You can purchase decorative acorns, balls, stars, nuts, and other adornments and affix them to wreaths made from the branches of ivy or mistletoe. Use a strong adhesive to glue magnolia leaves at the back of the wreath. You can place them on the mantelpiece or on the chairs placed around your dining table.
