I am so excited to share this beautiful find from Balsam Hill with you today. I am such a big fan of their beautiful trees and wreaths and am thankful for their sponsorship of this post. The thoughts and tutorial are my own.
I have always loved Christmas lights, but having a toddler makes me love them even more. The way her eyes light up when she sees them, and the way she points out all of the “pretty lights” makes my momma heart so happy. Yesterday, my handsome hubby hung our Christmas lights… and I had a little surprise for him to put up this year too… a GIANT 5 ft wreath! He is such a good sport. I am a lucky girl.
Last year when we were driving around looking at lights (A daily thing with my girl) I noticed one house that looked so charming that had a giant lighted wreath at the peak of their home. I made a mental note that I wanted to do that this year. I found this beautiful 60″ Vermont White Spruce Wreath from Balsam Hill. I am in LOVE. It looks so lush and real. I truly love this wreath. We installed it above our pillars and now, at night, our home looks like a cute gingerbread house.
To hang our wreath, my hubby started by pre-drilling a hole at the midpoint above our arch with his drill. He screwed in a heavy duty garage hook… you know, the big kind with the rubber coating.
While he was doing this, I was fluffing the wreath and attaching its little hooks that hold it open. When he was finished he hung the wreath on the hook. It is so big that it stayed pretty taut against the house. Then he strung the cords over to the power and plugged it with the rest of the Christmas lights so that it would also go on with the timer.
We use the C7 lights and have them hooked to the house with clips. We do a pattern of 2 red and 1 white.
These pictures were taken at dusk so you can start to see the lights. You can even see the sweet Frosted Balsam Hill Christmas tree up in the window upstairs. I can’t WAIT to share my trees with you this year!! (Yes, I said trees… I have a problem)
Here she is at night in all of her nighttime glory. I love how much charm it adds to my home to have this elegant little touch.
I love this season so much.
