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 the rest of your living spaces.
1. Front Door
Wreaths on front doors are a common sight during harvest season. Their warm colors and natural beauty make your home look inviting.
Tip: To hang a wreath, stick an adhesive hook upside down on the back of the door. Position the wreath in front of the door. Loop a string through the wreath and tie the ends. Then go over the door and attach the string to the hook at the back.
Greet your visitors with a colorful wreath in your foyer or mudroom. Some quick ways to decorate are to hang it on a coat hook, or prop it up on a bench or table. It will make a lasting impression when guests leave, too.
Tip: Add color to a bare hallway with a seasonal wreath. The staircase banister is another area that will look lovely with greenery.
3. Living Room
Next to the front door, the fireplace mantel is the most popular spot for wreaths. It creates a center of interest that is seen from any corner of the room.
Place pre-lit wreaths on windows to brighten your home outside at night, too. Another idea is to hang a wreath in front of a mirror, an artwork, or an empty frame. Remember to scale it to the size of the frame for visual impact.
Tip: Showcase a wreath with an empty picture frame. Find a beautiful one at thrift stores or recycle an old frame you no longer use for a customized twist.
Hang a wreath on a shelf, cupboard, or stovetop to make your kitchen cozier. Furniture with knob handles are easy spots to decorate. Add a dash of cheer to dishwashing with a pretty fall wreath above the sink.
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.
Complement your tablescape with a wreath on a dining room cabinet or buffet table. Choose a color palette that ties in the look of your decorating theme.
Tip: Put a wreath at the base of a cake stand or serving platter as an accent to your table setting.
Place a wreath on the wall above your bed or on closet doors to add pops of color. Or, use them to bring a seasonal touch into your bathroom area.
Tip: Hang your greenery using ways that don’t need nails or holes.
