Every year, towards the middle of December we put up a real Christmas tree, the only kind of tree I have ever had. One of the things I do every year on Black Friday is start decorating the house for Christmas. Inside we put up some animated figures and hang cards and other decorations. Outside we hang lights and hang a wreath on the door. We switched to an artificial wreath several years ago because for the three previous years we couldn’t find real wreaths that were nice enough to justify spending $30-$50 on. That little artificial wreath may have gone into permanent retirement this year, thanks to Wreaths Direct.
Wreaths Direct is part of Grandma D’s Tree and Wreath Farm, a family owned business situated in the Silverton Hills of Oregon, adjacent to Silver Falls State Park. Grandma D’s and Wreaths Direct sells trees, wreaths and centerpieces and ships anywhere in the United States.

The wreath that we received to review arrived quickly and safely in a box sized just right. When I opened the box I was surprised to see that there weren’t needles all over the box. The wreath smelled so good.
The wreath was attached to its frame with heavy wire and not one single branch had gotten loose. The wreath was decorated with a red velvet ribbon as well as berries and pine cones. There were even bells attached! Jimgle bells, jingle bells….
At 24” the wreath is quite large, and looks terrific hanging on my front door. I love the way the different colors of green give the wreath a great look and texture. I must say it’s really quite thick, and much nicer then the thin, poorly made ones that I’ve seen selling locally. The $29.95 that it sells for is a good value in my opinion, considering it’s high quality and workmanship, and the fact that it will last all season and requires no care.
I’m thrilled with my wreath. I’ll gladly recommend Wreaths Direct in a heartbeat.
