Deck the halls with boughs of holly—and deck your front door, fireplace mantel and anywhere else with a wreath too. Christmas wreaths are one of the most elegant, and not to mention easiest, ways to decorate this holiday season. (Plus, if you go faux, one purchase will allow you to decorate for many seasons to come.) Wreaths can range in style from classic and understated to lush and full, with pinecones, clusters of red berries and ball ornaments adorning them.


While a wreath on your front door is a given, and creates a warm welcome for both guests and yourself, don't feel limited with your wreath placement. Designs that can withstand Mother Nature's unpredictable winter weather could also decorate a fence or be hung in front of a window. Indoor wreaths—ones with delicate materials or one that is versatile for both indoor and outdoor use—could literally deck the halls, add a dose of festive fun to an entryway, or garnish your fireplace mantel.

Whatever your decorating style, a wreath is sure to make things merry and bright.

What to Consider When Buying A Christmas Wreath

Material:‌ Most faux holiday wreaths are made with hardy, often plastic-based materials that can withstand all the snowing and blowing that a white Christmas guarantees. Good thing, because you wouldn't want to hang a delicate wreath outside that would fall apart with one gust from Old Man Winter. Before buying a wreath though, read the product description carefully to ensure that it can withstand outdoor use—if that's where you want to hang it. Otherwise, go wild with more fragile materials, like dried flowers and feathers, as long as it has a safe home inside. That ensures your wreath will stay in perfect condition to bring out year after year.


How You'll Store It:‌ As much as we adore wreaths, and love the versatility of using a faux one over and over, they aren't the slimmest piece of decor to store. Before you commit to one, ensure you have the proper storage space to keep it the other 11 months of the year—and that you're able to store the wreath without crushing it.


How You'll Hang It:‌ It's totally understandable if you're leery of adding a nail to your door or walls. Before buying a wreath, scan the description for its weight. Most seasonal wreaths will be lightweight enough to use a removable adhesive strip (or two) instead of dragging out your hammer. Then you won't add any holes to your wall, allowing you to move the wreath around year after year, if you're inspired to do so.
