Rated 1 out of 5 by janieL NOT blue-green
I ordered this wreath based on the description "realistic boughs have the same blue-green color of natural Spruce". It is not blue-green AT ALL. I was hoping it would match or at least blend with the other blue-green spruce decorations that I have. Very disappointing.

I do love the size of these letters, however the O does not lay flat, and one of hooks broke off the Y. I can make them both work, but I'm not as happy happy as I should be.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lovemyhomeinCT High marks for it's uniqueness
This caught my eye last Christmas but I thought it was too expensive. When it went on sale this year, I decided to go for it. Overall, I like it and am glad I made the purchase. It is unique, catches your eye and is the right size for my front door. My letter is "R." I will say that I wish the shape wasn't quite so skinny. That is my only complaint. This can stay on my door all winter, as it doesn't scream, "holiday." I'll enjoy it for a long time.

I bought myself one of these wreaths a while back and have had fun decorating it for the holidays with berries, ribbons and even battery-packed strings of lights.
I liked it so much I bought it for several friends for holiday gifts and am hoping they enjoy using it as much as I have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lesbontempsroule Looks great for a door
Looks just as described. If I had to be super picky, I wish my specific letter had two hooks instead of the one that is only on one side so it forces the letter to slant. I used a J and it has to hang crooked on the door unless I schlep out to a store to attach another hook to make it hang straight on my door. While I like the slanted look of the initial, it just doesn't provide me with versatile hanging options. I know, I know, first world problems!

Rated 4 out of 5 by klmacd Good Quality faux evergreen letters!
I purchased the letters C & W for my Grandson's room at our ski house, to hang over their bed headboards. They look GREAT! I added some faux red berries and hung the letters with red & black Buffalo Plaid ribbon... rustic and wintery look in our log cabin! Thanks Ballard for the Design ideas!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CountryKrissy Looks fantasic!
I got the "W" wreath last year and decorated it with burlap ribbon, peacock feathers, and antlers. I just pulled it out and hung it up again on the front porch for the holiday season. Still looks beautiful and so custom!

Rated 2 out of 5 by jannygirl Disappointing
I was really excited about finding the monogramed wreaths. I ordered 1 S and 2 B's. When I received them, however, I was disappointed by how uniformed and plastic the needles looked. Also, the B looks like an 8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BostonAccent perfect for out/indoors
I ordered JOY for the holiday season and i couldn't be
more pleased. This product is very well made, weighty,on sale and has good hardware for hanging.
With my vinyl siding clips, the beautiful, very real like letters were up very quickly.
Very happy and wish they made a Z for our last name.

Couldn't decide whether to use these on our front doors or our gate - they look good on both. I glued a couple of pine cones on each and stuck in a Christmas pick for some color. A key for Santa hangs in front of the C. Hope they are weather proof - would like to have them for many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Upnorth45 The product is sooooo unique
This will adorn our split-rail fence for the holidays in Northern Wisconsin. With the rusticness of the northwoods, we could have it up all year-around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Duck34 Letters "V & "M
I am happy with them, but The only thing I would rather is that the letter "V" be a little more open (spread apart).The letter "M" I got is nice. I will be giving these as a Christmas gift for my mom & grandma. I will also go to the store and purchase ribbon etc.. to make it their own. I also would have liked if they had a wire running from hook to hook, so they can put it on a wreath hanger. Other than that, I am happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Conn Very Nice!
I love these letters. I tried to get them last year but they sold out so quickly. I jumped on it this year and bought the "JOY" letters. They have nice substantial hooks to hang them with. Ours will be put outside above our doorway entrance. They look very real. They are also easy to store and don't take up much space.

I ordered an and while it looks fine it does not wow me. I would expect more from Ballard. Some say you can not bend the branches but I didn't have any problems at all. Overall I am going to keep it but they need to step up the quality on this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChristmasCrazy Unique Wreath
I love decorating for Christmas and have gone on a wreath buying and making binge over the last 3 years. Despite having more wreaths than I can even display, I could not resist these alphabet wreaths. Since my husband and I share the same initials, I bought a S and B for us. I also bought a B for my sister. Although I haven't decorated or used them yet, I really like the way they look. I look forward to using them this Christmas.

This is for a gift so I have not fluffed it up. It's a cool idea and fun, something different. Overall I'm satisfied with this purchase and look forward to giving it as a gift. BTW I bought the letter "E". Now to choose a ribbon for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fun1shopper Well Made
I purchased the H for the inside of my front door and purchased a second H this year, for my antique mirror.
The branches are dense and the back is made with many branches and tied off. It's very well made and I received many compliments on this and was asked where they could buy this and of course I let them know it was BD.
You can't go wrong!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheGreenDiva A Gift that Keeping on Giving...
Purchased ours a couple of years ago and we love it! Last year I was looking for gift ideas and remembered this wreath. Gave out wreaths "S", "R" and "M" as gifts and the recipients loved them!!! In fact, this year, one of the recipients asked where it was purchased so they could purchase a wreath for their friends. A very unique gift idea! Nice house warming present, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by twobrowndogs Great Item
I ordered this item for myself first, to see if the quality would be something I would order to give as a gift. I was very happy with it.
Out of the box it needs a tiny bit of fluffing, as you would expect. Nothing wrong with that. The color is great and does not scream "artificial." I will say, though, that this item is best viewed from a slight distance. At eye level it is easily seen to be artificial. I will hang it higher on the wall or over a door, possibly, and that will alleviate the only issue I have.
Craftsmanship is a lot better than I anticipated. I was pleasantly surprised. I will definitely be purchasing more of these for gifts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KatCue Great Gift or Buy One for Yourself
I bought these for all my friends/family for the holidays and they were a huge hit. I did their last name initial if they were married and first initial if they were single... I bought one for myself too and I've gotten a lot of compliments on it. For the price, they were the perfect personal holiday gift...and not to mention a great gift for those hard to buy for friends we all have in our lives. It's one of those accessories you can keep up well after the holidays. Certain letters needed a little adjusting and it could use a bow or some type of "flair"... other than that, I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dorito Great product and quality!
I loved my spruce "J" alphabet wreath! I loved it so much that I bought all the girls in my family one for Christmas as well. Right after Christmas I decided that I wanted to spell out "JOY", but it was too late to purchase the "O" and "Y", wish the letters were stocked a bit longer.
