Hanging a wreath is an easy way to get ready for fall. Vibrant and abundant foliage creates a welcoming ambience throughout your home. Here are different ways to decorate with fall wreaths⁠—from the front door to your other spaces.

1. Front Door

Fall door wreaths are a common sight during harvest season. Their warm colors and natural beauty make your home look inviting.

Pro Tip: One of the best wreath hanging ideas is to stick an adhesive hook upside down on the back of the door, above eye level. Get a sturdy cord that’s long enough go over your door from back to front. Loop one end of the cord and attach it to the hook. String the other end through the wreath and position it in front of the door.

2. Entryway

Greet your visitors with a colorful fall wreath in your foyer or mudroom. For quick ways to decorate, hang one on a coat hook or prop it up on a bench or table. These make a lasting impression on departing guests, too.

Pro Tip: Add color to a bare hallway with a seasonal wreath. The staircase banister is another area that looks lovely decorated with greenery.

3. Living Room

Next to the front door, the fireplace mantel is the most popular spot for hanging wreaths. It creates a point of interest that is seen from any corner of the room.

Hanging pre-lit wreaths on windows is a great way to brighten your home outside at night, too. Another idea is to hang a wreath in front of a mirror or an empty frame. Remember to scale it to the size of the frame for visual impact.

Pro Tip: Showcase a wreath with an empty picture frame. Find a beautiful one at thrift stores or recycle something you no longer use for a customized twist.

4. Kitchen

Hang a wreath on a shelf, cupboard, or stovetop to make your kitchen cozier. Furniture with knob handles are easy spots to decorate. A pretty fall wreath above the sink adds cheer to your washing area.

Pro Tip: Hang your wreath with a thick ribbon for a polished look. Make sure it’s supported by the ribbon at the 12 o’clock position. For heavier wreaths, adjust the ribbon to the 1 o’clock and 11 o’clock positions.

5. Dining Room

Get ready to host memorable meals with a DIY wreath turned chandelier above your table. For a creative centerpiece, lay one flat and put a lamp or LED flameless candles in the middle.

Pro Tip: Put a wreath at the base of a cake stand or serving platter as an accent to your table setting.

6. Bedroom

If you’re looking for other areas to hang wreaths indoors, the bedroom is a great place. Try the wall above your bed or on closet doors to add pops of color. Also, use them to bring a seasonal touch to your bathroom.
