What makes a good Christmas wreath?
When you've found a good wreath, it really can add so much depth to your Christmas holiday display. And if you're not that into decorations, just one awesome wreath may be all your space needs for festive feels.
"A Christmas Wreath on your front door really adds the finishing touch to your home," says Jack Anderson, assistant plant manager at Squire's Garden Centers (opens in new tab). "Choose a real wreath adorned with cinnamon sticks and pine cones or an artificial wreath, some of which even come with LED lights wrapped around them to twinkle on your front door."
Otherwise, we say that you can use a wreath in the centre of your table, with candles in the middle. We also love to use a wreath hanging on an interior wall. Above a fireplace makes the perfect place, should you have an empty space that is. The bigger the better in this case.
With so many options to choose from when it comes to finding your Christmas wreath, we spoke to Sheva Knopfler, co-founder and creative director of Lights.com (opens in new tab) for her know-how on what to look for. She advises to consider the size of your door, whether the wreath can be covered, and its hanging mechanism before deciding which wreath will suit you.
"If your door is under a covered porch, or if you have a storm door, you could protect your wreath from autumn rain and wind," says Knopfler. "If not, you will need a sturdier, weather-proof wreath. You should also consider the color of your door and the foliage around it. What colors you'd like to 'pop' in your decor? If your door is visible from the street at night, it might be a nice touch to have a lit wreath."
When should you hang a Christmas wreath?
There is no blanket rule for when to put up your Christmas wreath, but we'd suggest keeping it in time with when the weather changes. As soon as autumn is on its way out, think about decorating to mark the start of the festive season. Lots of people hang festive wreaths and garlands right after Halloween.
