Better yet, one that’s pre-lit because if you want yours to light up come dark, then this will prove to be handy. Other than that, the choice is yours.

    Because we all love a bit of pampas grass, right? So why not incorporate it into your Christmas decor? This Scandi-style Christmas wreath from Habitat gives off a softly festive vibe, and it would look just as lovely on a front door as it would an interior door – or hung above a fireplace. It’s made using a combination of artificial eucalyptus, green foliage and obviously pampas. To say that it’s bursting with greenery would be a little bit of an understatement.

It comes with a jute hanging rope for easy positioning.

Brown, cream, red and green yarn make up this wreath that resembles a Christmas pudding, and we think it will look delightful on an interior door, hung inside a bedroom or above a fireplace.
