Best Holiday Wreaths – Mexi-Style!

Hey everyone! As we gear up for the holiday season, I wanted to share some awesome Latin-inspired wreath ideas to bring a touch of our vibrant culture to our homes. 

After all, it isn’t only about the Christmas tree! There are plenty of other gorgeous, DIY decorations you can make! And, we love making holiday wreaths! There is just something about making your own wreath!

Wreaths are a fantastic way to add a festive flair to your space, and with a Latin twist, they become even more special. You can make any of the wreaths you see listed below, by using a real Christmas wreath (using fresh evergreens and branch tips). Or you can just buy a plain store-bought wreath with artificial Christmas greenery (personal preference!).

Best Holiday Wreaths 

Whatever you decide, these handmade wreath ideas will hopefully give you endless ideas for the best wreaths to make! Let’s dive into some of the best holiday wreaths!

Here are some fabulous Mexican wreath ideas! Especially if you are looking for a Mexican Christmas wreath to make! I made this wreath because I bought some pan dulce ornaments and thought they deserved a bigger limelight than the branches on my Christmas tree.

How cute these are! I bought them from Me Vale Creations, and immediately hung them on my tree. But my holiday decor was a bit too busy and I felt the ornaments got lost behind the purple branches and sequins lucha masks I’d hung.

I happened to be shopping for groceries and came across a big display of wreaths. Of course, I scooped one up (future Kathy made me do it) and when I arrived home, I knew what I needed to do!

Hello pan dulce ornaments! Those, along with a bunch of other supplies I’d been hoarding: Mini succulents, tissue flowers, silk roses, even a little birdie. 

Here’s how I made this Mexican Christmas Wreath

To make this I started with the pan dulce ornaments, then I hot glued the flowers, the succulents and filled in with velvet flowers.

Other Mexican wreath ideas:

Tropical Flair Wreath

Latin America is known for its beautiful tropical landscapes, so why not bring that into your wreath? Consider using vibrant faux greenery and tropical flowers like hibiscus and bird of paradise, along with lush greenery to create a lush wreath that exudes the beauty of the tropics. 

This would make for a beautiful outdoor Christmas wreath to hang on your front door. Just make sure you have a door hanger for your wreath to hang on!

Papel Picado Wreath

papel picado


Papel picado, or intricately cut paper banners, are a staple of Latin American fiestas. Incorporating papel picado into a wreath adds a delicate and festive touch. 

You can either use pre-cut papel picado or try your hand at making your own for a personalized touch. This makes for a simple wreath that will fit in with your other Christmas decorations!

Merry and Bright Wreath

In many Latin American countries, the holiday season is all about family, joy, and togetherness. A wreath adorned with battery-operated lights, colorful ornaments, and maybe even a mini piñata or two captures the spirit of a Latin American holiday celebration. You can even add some bright red berries to make it really stand out!

Cascarones Wreath

Incorporate colorful Cascarones (confetti-filled eggshells) into a wreath for a festive and playful touch. You can add things like painted poinsettias, fresh greenery, berry clusters, and natural materials to fill it out and make it your own.

Tropical Fruit Wreath

Use artificial tropical fruits like pineapples, bananas, and mangoes to create a fun and unique wreath that represents the abundance of Latin American produce. This would look beautiful over a fireplace mantel or over a window!

Cuban Cigar Wreath

For a touch of Cuban flair, consider using mini decorative cigars and magnolia leaves to craft a wreath that pays homage to the rich cultural heritage of Cuba. This would be the perfect holiday decoration for the ‘man cave’, in a study or office. 

Salsa Dance Wreath

Add mini maracas, dance shoes, and musical notes to a wreath to capture the lively spirit of salsa music and dance. You can buy all this stuff from your local dollar store or craft stores. Add a big bright red ribbon bow to the wreath to really make it pop!

Use a small serape blanket as the base of the wreath and adorn it with festive accents like mini sombreros and maracas for a colorful and lively look.
