Wreaths have long been used to symbolize the holiday season and honor special occasions. Apart from traditional displays, there are many ways to incorporate these accents in your home décor.

Read on to explore common places to hang Balsam Hill wreaths around the house and creative ideas on how to use them as beautiful finishing touches all year round.

Where is the best place to hang a wreath in your home?

The front door is usually considered the best place to hang a wreath as it instantly creates a welcoming ambience. It’s the perfect spot to showcase the season’s vibrant blooms and accents. However, there are a lot of other places you can spruce up with this versatile décor piece.

Wreaths can be displayed both indoors and outdoors to create a cohesive look throughout your home. Many artificial wreaths are designed for indoor or covered outdoor spaces, so it’s best to check if they’re safe for outdoor display as well. Balsam Hill’s outdoor-safe wreaths are crafted with UV protection to resist fading so you can enjoy their beauty and brightness all season long.

Where to Hang Wreaths Outdoors

Set the tone for your entire home by dressing up exterior spaces with stunning wreaths. Here are ideal areas outside to showcase outdoor-safe foliage.

1. Porch

Make a grand statement with a wreath on your front door. Use two wreaths if you have double doors, and check that the size of each wreath is proportionate to your door.

Add flair to your porch with a floating wreath display. Try hanging wreaths with ribbons or thin rope from the ceiling. Cluster varying sizes of wreaths in the same or complementary hues. You can also attach them to your porch railings, columns, or on the walls of your veranda using a wreath hook.

2. Exterior Windows

Your outside windows are also interesting locations for wreaths. Place them in the center of each window and leave 4 to 6 inches of clear space on both sides. To achieve a dramatic effect, choose a wreath that fits the entire width of the frame.

3. Patio

Bring effortless charm to your al fresco dining and lounging spaces with coordinated foliage. Many of Balsam Hill’s artificial floral wreaths are available with matching garlandsflower arrangementshanging baskets, and window boxes. This makes it easy for you to create a uniform look and get your home ready for entertaining at a moment’s notice.

4. Backyard and Garden Shed

Transform your fence, gate, and storage area into a backyard retreat with vibrant wreaths and garlands. Balsam Hill’s outdoor-safe foliage items are UV-protected to prevent color fading and damage from the weather. Keep them at the height of their beauty by displaying them outside for up to 3 months a year.

Where to Hang Wreaths Indoors

Wreaths are an easy way to bring the season indoors. Display them just about anywhere—from high-traffic areas like hallways and the living room to private spaces such as your bedroom and study. Try these wreath decorating ideas to brighten different parts of your home.

1. Foyer

Welcome guests into your home with a floral wreath in your entryway. One quick display tip is to use a wreath hook, but a coat hook works, too. A strategically placed piece will make a lasting impression when they leave your home. A wreath also breaks the monotony of a bare hallway. Hang one on the banister or beside the staircase to decorate this high-traffic area.

3. Living Room

Windows are a great place to hang indoor wreaths for maximum exposure. They can be enjoyed from the outside as well. Another interesting idea: Why not dress up a mirror or framed artwork with a wreath? Remember to scale it to the size of the mirror or artwork for visual impact.

4. Kitchen

Give your kitchen a warmer and cozier atmosphere by hanging a wreath on a shelf, cupboard, or stovetop. Furniture pieces with knob handles are natural display spots. Another unassuming but impactful spot? Hang a spring wreath above the sink to add a cheerful touch to dishwashing.

Insider’s Tip: For a polished look, tie a thick ribbon around your wreath and use that to hang it.

5. Dining Room

The dining area is one of the best spots to hang wreaths. Wake up to beautiful mornings with spring florals adorning your breakfast nook. A wreath also helps complete a delightful, themed vignette for your sideboard. Stick to a few simple and cohesive elements to keep the overall look clean and elegant.

Make your dinner guests feel extra special with thoughtful details like small wreaths decorating the backs of each chair. Attach a name card to each for a personal touch. You can also create your own DIY wreath-turned-chandelier above your table or lay one flat and place a lamp or LED flameless candles in the middle to make a centerpiece.

For a cohesive look, style your bar cart and dessert station with the same greenery you used for your dining room. Then, place the cart or table near a window to draw in natural light.

6. Reading Nooks

Cozy up your private nooks and lounging spaces with an elegant floral wreath. Hanging wreaths in these alcoves add a touch of nature, making them more conducive to rest and relaxation.

7. Bedroom

Where do you hang wreaths in the bedroom? Place one on the wall above your bed for a refreshing view.

Insider’s Tip: Pair your wreath with an empty picture frame for a unique twist. Find a beautiful one at thrift stores or recycle an old one you no longer use.

Add charming pops of color to closet doors by hanging wreaths on them. Similarly, use them to brighten up your guest or master bathroom area. They’ll add a vibrant, natural touch to an otherwise plain or drab space.

Insider’s Tip: A wreath door hanger is the simplest way to mount a wreath on a door. Or, make your own: At the back of a door, mount an adhesive hook upside down. Position your wreath in front and tie a string or ribbon around it. Then, hang the string over the door and attach it to the hook at the back.
