When can you hang a fall wreath?

You're best to put up your wreath anytime from September through to October. Try to time it with when the weather starts changing. See an autumn leaf? There's your cue. 

Where should a fall wreath be placed?

Traditionally, as with any seasonal wreath, the front door is considered the best place to hang it. Picture that typical Christmas image of a beautifully styled front door where a wreath hangs neatly in the center. Well replace that with a fall wreath and your front door aesthetic is good to go for the season. A top tip? Place your wreath in the top half of your door, centering it at eye level. It’s a decorative touch that lets people know you’re in the holiday spirit.

Otherwise, it’s perfectly acceptable to put your wreath in other areas of your house, whether that be in a window, on a wall, or above a mantle piece. Entryways and dining rooms are popular places to hang a wreath too.

How to choose a fall wreath 

With so many options to choose from when it comes to finding your fall wreath, we left it to the experts for their advice on how to decide. 

Firstly, Sheva Knopfler, co-founder and creative director of Lights.com (opens in new tab)  says it's important to consider the size of your door, then the location and the elements: '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. If not, you will need a sturdier, weather-proof wreath. You should also consider what foliage is around your door and 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, for example'.
