Christmas in the Kitchen – Mini Wreaths on Kitchen Cabinets.
Why hello there!
If you’ve found yourself here from Modern Glam … and you’ve never been here before … let me offer you a big, hearty and holiday-worthy welcome.
And if didn’t find yourself here from Modern Glam, then I enthusiastically encourage you to stop by and check out Ashley’s amazing Scandinavian-inspired Christmas decor. Simply stunning!
Oh, and all this Christmas-touring-stuff has been organized by my friend Marty at A Stroll Thru Life. So you must, must, must give Marty a visit as well.
Now on to the tour ….
It feels like for all my seasonal home tours I’ve been focusing on the living room. With a little entry thrown in from season to season.
And when I say feels like, I mean I have absolutely been focusing on the living room.
It’s my easy go-to … and it’s typically is pretty neat and organized. Unlike (cough, cough) the kitchen. 😉
Now a blogging friend told me many years ago that her go-to Christmas decorating is just putting up a tree in every room.
And if I had a large kitchen – or an open floor plan – I would have 100% plopped a tree in my kitchen and called a day.
But I don’t.
So I resorted to my go-to Christmas decorating idea: little wreaths!
And I can say with 100% certainty that adding mini wreaths to my kitchen cabinets is 100% my idea and my idea alone (okay, maybe not alone; but it’s not something I “borrowed” from Pinterest or Instagram or even a magazine).
I’ve been hanging these little mini wreath babies on my kitchen cabinets for over two decades.
Long before Pinterest or Instagram … or even the internet!
Okay, maybe not the internet. But definitely before wireless internet.
MINI WREATHS: HOW TO & SOURCES
I’m frequently asked about the mini wreaths on the cabinet doors, and I shared how I hung them on this post (click here).
In terms of sources, I purchased my mini faux pine wreaths many, many years ago. But here are the details: The inner diameter measures 3″ and the outer diameter is 5″; here’s a link similar ones I found on Amazon*

Another idea is to make your own using wired faux greenery. Click here and click here for some options
Here’s a few more holiday touches in my kitchen …
Some painted pine cones.
A Christmas day countdown calendar.
A DIY sign (I’ll share a quick tutorial later this week).
And a mason jar vase (of course!).
Up next on the Christmas home tour is my good friend (and fellow Illinoisan) Jennifer from Town and Country Living. Be sure to stop by and say hi from me!

Mini wreaths for the win! I absolutely love how they make any room (or chair, or doorknob, etc) look instantly festive. Thanks for sharing your beautiful kitchen with us, and Merry (early) Christmas!
I love your kitchen, and those wreaths are the perfect Christmas decoration. The ball jar filled with greenery is a great idea too. My favorite is your advent calendar. How fabulous and unique is that. I may have to copy you next year and add that idea to my laundry room door. Thanks so much for joining the tour, your home is always a favorite.

I just love all of the Christmas touches in your kitchen, Linda! The green looks so pretty with the gray. I especially love your countdown to Christmas calendar. If you’ve been using many wreaths for that long, then I think you deserve the originator credit! 😀
It all looks so lovely Linda! Those little mini wreaths are just adorable, they bring the perfect pop of green into the space and I LOVE that Christmas countdown calendar! Happy holidays!

Love all your wreaths and the placement of your Advent calendar is so clever! Merry Christmas!!
Linda, I love your kitchen and your photography! And yes, I remember that first time you posted about those mini wreaths, it went crazy! Happy to see them all around Pinterest! ❤️❤️
I love the wreaths!! So adorable! I can’t put up a tree in every room or the kitchen either! Merry Christmas!
Kuddos to you for expanding Christmas into your kitchen (I always avoid shooting mine like the plague). I think the mini wreaths are just the perfect touch, and I am swooning over that calendar. Beautiful work, Linda!
