How to Make Your Christmas Wreath Last Longer

Keep Your Wreath Looking Lush With a Beauty Trick

If you're really concerned about making your Christmas wreath last the season, I'd recommend making an ornament wreath. But let's be honest: no number of candy-colored glass baubles beats the smell of pine boughs on your front doorstep. So I have a little trick for you that will ensure your wreath lasts well beyond Christmas.

As soon as you buy your wreath, spray it all over with a can of hair spray — any kind will do. The product will cover the wreath with a protective coating that traps in the moisture of the needles, helping to keep it fresh and looking fab 'til Rudolph and friends come galloping to your roof. That said, if your wreath is already looking dry and brittle, this trick won't work any miracles. Make sure you select a wreath with lush, green needles to begin with.
