Hanging a wreath is an easy way to get your home ready for fall. Lush foliage that embodies the vivid colors of the season creates charming spaces. Here are the best spots to decorate with fall wreaths—from the front door to other areas.
1. Front Door
This harvest season, welcome family and friends with a fall wreath on your front door. Their warm colors and natural beauty will make your home look inviting. Display two fall wreaths of the same style on double doors. As a rule of thumb, your wreath should cover 50 to 75% of your door’s width. This means that for a standard 30- to 36-inch door, you should leave about 6 inches of space on each side. For a dramatic effect, choose a bigger wreath but make sure to allot at least 2 inches of space on each side.
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.
Greet visitors with colorful fall foliage in your entryway or foyer. For quick ways to decorate, hang a wreath on a coat hook or prop it up on a bench or table. Another fall wreath idea is to style a vignette by the doorway. Group harvest-themed objects that tell a story such as a matching autumn wreath and garland, pumpkins, hay bales, and other décor.
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 another popular spot for hanging wreaths. It creates a point of interest that can be seen from any corner of the room. A creative fall wreath idea is to display it in front of a mirror or within a frame. If you don’t have a fireplace, brighten the area by hanging wreaths on windows. Remember to scale the wreath to the size of the window or the frame for visual impact.
Pro Tip: Create a striking wall décor by showcasing a wreath with an empty frame. Find a beautiful one at thrift stores or recycle something you no longer use for a customized twist.
4. Dining Room
Complement your Thanksgiving table spread with a fall wreath on a dining room cabinet or on the wall behind the buffet table. Choose a color palette that ties in with the look of your table accessories.
Pro Tip: Put a wreath at the base of a cake stand or serving platter as an accent to your table setting.
Make your kitchen cozier by hanging a wreath on the stovetop, cupboard, or pantry door. Furniture with knob handles are easy spots to decorate. A pretty fall leaves wreath above the sink adds cheer to your washing area, too.
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, make two loops of ribbon to suspend the wreath. Adjust the ribbons to the 1 o’clock and 11 o’clock positions.
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.
