Christmas will be here before we know it, which means it's time to start decorating your home and barn. If you're looking for a fun take on the traditional Christmas wreath, a horse wreath might be the perfect option.

You've likely seen the horse head wreaths that have been gaining in popularity over the last few years. However, the wreaths below have all sorts of fun takes on that concept. From bridled horses to horseshoes to wreaths decorated with horses - there are all sorts of ideas here.

A different kind of horse wreath!

Need a horse wreath for your home or barn door? There are plenty of places where you can buy them, including many local craft stores and some online vendors. Check out your local horse Facebook pages or Pinterest boards and you're bound to find people selling them. Some of the Instagram accounts on the photos posted above may sell Christmas horse wreaths. Etsy and Amazon are also good places to look.


If you're feeling creative, you can try your hand at making your own holiday wreath. You can easily make a circular wreath by incorporating horse items from around the barn. But if you'd like to make a shaped wreath, such as the horse head wreaths above or a horseshoe wreath, you'll need a base to affix or super glue your materials to - many people use a heavy-duty wire mesh or chicken wire.

You'll also need to experiment with types, colors, and lengths of greenery, real pine, and pine cones until you get the exact look you're after. Here's how to make a DIY horse wreath according to YouTuber Garden Answer.

It may take a little time, but we bet the finished product will be worth it, and you'll have the perfect Christmas wreath. They could also make for the perfect gift for the horse lovers in your life!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
