The holidays are right around the corner, and for many of us, that means it’s time to break out the Christmas decorations! As we unpack our boxes filled with twinkling lights, glittery garlands, and cheery figurines, there’s one essential holiday decoration that really helps set the festive mood: the Christmas wreath. Nothing says “tis the season” quite like a full, fragrant evergreen wreath adorned with berries, pinecones, and festive bows. But finding the perfect Christmas wreath to adorn your front door or fireplace mantel can be a challenge. That’s where Michaels comes in!

Michaels is the ultimate one-stop-shop for all things Christmas, especially when it comes to wreaths. With a huge selection of styles, sizes, and prices, they have something to fit every budget and design aesthetic. As a Christmas decorating enthusiast, I was eager to see what festive offerings I could find at my local Michaels store. I’m happy to report that they did not disappoint! From simple grapevine wreaths to elaborate pre-lit boxwood masterpieces, read on for a full report of the many Christmas wreath options spotted on a recent visit to Michaels.

A Bounty of Fresh Evergreens

The first thing that struck me upon entering the Christmas department was the incredible assortment of fresh evergreen wreaths. The smell alone put me in the holiday spirit! Michaels has a wide selection of natural noble fir, pine, and cedar wreaths in various sizes. I saw everything from petite 12-inch wreaths perfect for door hangers to giant 50-inch wreaths ready to hang over a fireplace mantel. The wreaths are full and lush, made with real pine branches and cones for that authentic woodsy aroma.

Prices range from budget-friendly to premium, but I found most of the fresh wreaths to be very reasonably priced. For example, they offer a 24-inch mixed evergreen wreath for just $29.99. A wreath of that size and quality would cost twice as much at most florists! In addition to basic green wreaths, they also have versions pre-decorated with red berries and pinecones. For those wanting extra sparkle, some wreaths come pre-lit with 70 mini warm white LED lights – great for illuminating an outdoor front door.

Faux & Pre-Decorated Wreaths for Low Maintenance

Maybe a fresh evergreen wreath isn’t ideal for you. Not to worry, Michaels has a fabulous selection of artificial and pre-decorated wreaths that require zero maintenance but still look amazingly realistic! I saw faux fir wreaths with incredibly life-like branches in all the traditional Christmas colors – frosted pine, snow-dusted cedar, red berries, gold leaves, silver glitter, and more. The attention to detail is really impressive. They look so real, most people would never guess they’re artificial.

If you want to save time decorating, Michaels has a huge assortment of wreaths that come fully decorated right out of the box. There are traditional evergreen wreaths pre-adorned with red bows, pinecones, and poinsettia flowers. For a modern farmhouse vibe, they offer burlap-wrapped grapevine wreaths with printed greenery and plaid accents. If you love the look of fresh eucalyptus, but don’t want the hassle, they have faux seeded eucalyptus wreaths with pops of berries and curly willow stems. The options are truly endless! Most of these pre-made wreaths cost $40-$60 for a 24-inch size.

Supplies Galore for DIY Wreath Making

Maybe the thrill for you is in creating your own custom Christmas wreath! Michaels is like wreath-making paradise for crafty DIYers. They have every supply and component you could possibly need to design a one-of-a-kind holiday wreath from scratch. It’s easy to get lost in aisle after aisle of wreath forms, decorative embellishments, ribbons, and floral picks waiting to be transformed into something magical.

For the base, they have basic wire, grapevine, and straw wreath forms starting at just a few bucks. To make your own evergreen masterpiece, they offer loose greenery by the bag or bush – cedar, fir, pine, magnolia – whatever your wreathing heart desires! Add as much or as little festive flair as you want with decorative picks, clusters of berries, pinecones, velvet poinsettias, feathers, dried fruit, tinsel garland, mini ornaments, and more. Top it off with giant checks and velvet ribbons for picture-perfect bows. The possibilities are endless. Let your creativity run wild!

Getting Crafty with Wreath Kits

If the thought of designing a Christmas wreath from complete scratch seems daunting, you can also find a wide selection of wreath kits at Michaels that make the process fun and easy. I spotted wreath kits to suit every skill level and style – from simple beginner florals to intricate woodland-themed designs.

For those new to wreath making, there are basic kits that provide everything you need to make a beautiful wreath in a few simple steps. For example, the Christmas Elegance Wreath Kit includes a 20-inch mixed greens wreath form, ribbon, floral stems, and decorations with easy how-to instructions for just $34.99. They also offer kits to make a Rustic Christmas WreathFrosted Forest Wreath, and more – all under $50 with supplies included!

More advanced crafters will love the unique themed wreath kits, like the Enchanted Holiday Wreath Kit that allows you to create a woodsy 24-inch masterpiece adorned with pine, cedar, faux mushrooms, and cute critters for $59.99. The supplies, instructions, and inspiration photos are all included. Making your own custom Christmas wreath has never been more fun or achievable thanks to these easy kits!

Small Wreaths for Every Space

While the dramatic 20-inch+ wreaths were definitely eye-catching, I also discovered Michaels has a nice offering of smaller wreaths perfect for decorating any space, both indoors and out. Not everyone has a huge front door or giant fireplace to fill. The good news is you can still add a festive wreath with one of their 12-, 14-, or 16-inch options.

For a petite accent, I loved the sweet 14-inch Holiday Cheer Wreath with red and white berries for only $19.99. For indoor hanging, they have lovely 12-inch grapevine wreaths with velvet bows and glittered berries for under $15. And if you need something weather-proof for the front storm door, they have cute Outdoor Ombre Wreaths that come in 12- and 14-inch sizes starting at just $9.99. So no door is too small for a touch of Christmas wreath cheer!

Get Your Sparkle On with Pre-Lit & Lighted Wreaths

Christmas simply wouldn’t be complete without plenty of festive lights! At Michaels, you can find wreaths that provide both greenery and glow. For a major wattage punch, they offer several styles of large pre-lit wreaths that come with lights already attached and incorporated throughout the design.

I was seriously impressed by the Frosted Tip Pre-Lit Wreath, which features snow-dusted cedar branches intertwined with 200 warm white LED lights. This show-stopping 24-inch wreath sells for $199.99, but seems well worth it for the wow factor! For outdoor lighting, they have a 24-inch Mixed Evergreen Pre-Lit Wreath with 70 weather-proof lights – perfect for illuminating a front door all season long.

If you’d rather add lights yourself, Michaels provides lighted wreaths designed specifically for attaching your own string lights. The Ombre Lighted Wreath, for example, is a 24-inch faux eucalyptus wreath with a strand of 25 clear mini lights included, but you can easily add more lights to make it as bright as you want. Lighted wreaths make decorating for the holidays an absolute breeze!

Alternative Christmas Wreath Styles

Looking for a non-traditional take on the Christmas wreath? Michaels offers several unique modern and alternative wreath styles that really sparked my imagination. If you favor a more natural look, they have gorgeous wreaths made from dried whole cinnamon sticks, sliced oranges, or fragrant clove-studded oranges – perfect for a rustic entryway.

For some artsy whimsy, check out the Paper Ball Wreaths made from intricately rolled sheets of music paper in red, white, or green. Or make a statement with the eye-catching Tinsel Wreath, which lives up to its sparkly name. Even succulents get a holiday twist with festive picks of red-tipped Christmas cactus. So don’t feel limited to just evergreen – explore all the creative wreath options at Michaels this season!

Now for the real fun part – shopping all the incredible Christmas savings and seasonal sales at Michaels! Throughout the holiday season, they offer enticing coupons both online and in the weekly ad circulars. I scored a 20% off entire purchase coupon right in my email inbox, which can lead to serious savings on large wreaths.
