From Halloween through Christmas, it seems that many doors have a wreath of some sort decorating the entry.  These Christmas wreath ideas are the perfect way to welcome guests to your home.

The third Saturday in December is honored each year as National Wreaths Across America Day, for good reason. Many homes have festive door wreaths on their front door in the month of December.

Round up of 11 great Holiday wreath ideas in a collage of photos.

Christmas wreaths are traditionally used on a front door, but you can use them in other ways too. Check out my tips for decorating a mailbox for Christmas for some creative ideas.

Decorate your door with a festive Christmas wreath

Some of these wreaths are simple, and some are very ornate. Some are store bought for lots of money and others are easy DIY projects.

Subtle Christmas wreath decorated with pine cones, a white ribbon, and white flowers.This lovely Christmas wreath uses pine cones and subtle colored flowers as well as eucalyptus leaves for a great effect.

You could also use poinsettias in place of pinecones. National Poinsettia Day falls in the middle of December, so it would make this wreath festive all month long!

The long cream colored wire wrapped ribbon adds just the right touch and matches the creamy colored flowers well.  Image shared from the creative commons part of Flickr.
