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 make a statement by showcasing the season’s beautiful blooms and accents. 

Do wreaths go inside or outside?

Wreaths look great when displayed both indoors and outdoors for a cohesive look throughout your home. While the best places to hang wreaths are indoors or outdoor covered spaces, wreaths can be displayed outside if they are labeled outdoor-safe.

Wondering about where to hang a wreath inside the home, aside from the front door? You can display wreaths just about anywhere—from high-traffic areas like hallways and the living room to more private spaces like your bedroom and study.

Wreaths are an easy way to bring the season indoors. Try these wreath decorating ideas to brighten different parts of your home.


Greet your guests as they enter your home with a floral wreath in your entryway. One quick display tip is to hang it on a coat hook. A strategically placed piece will make a lasting impression when they leave, too.

Break the monotony of a bare hallway by adding a wreath. Hang one on the banister or beside the staircase to decorate this high-traffic area.

Decorating Tip: Make sure to secure your décor with damage-free techniques. Find out how to hang wreaths without nails or holes here.

Living Room

Next to the front door, the fireplace mantel is also one of the best spots for hanging wreaths. It creates a center of interest that is easily seen from any corner of the room.

Windows are a great place to hang indoor wreaths for maximum exposure. They can be enjoyed from outside as well.

Another idea is to 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.

Make your kitchen more warm and cozy by hanging a wreath on a shelf, cupboard, or stovetop. Furniture with knob handles are natural display spots.

Decorate your home with wreaths placed in unassuming corners for a touch of charm. For instance, add a dash of cheer to dishwashing with a pretty floral wreath above the sink.

Decorating Tip: Use a thick ribbon to hang wreaths at home. This gives your décor a polished look. Make sure it’s supported by the ribbon at the 12 o’clock position. You can use transparent nylon fishing string for less visibility. To make heavier wreaths more secure, try placing the string at the 1 o’clock and 11 o’clock positions.

Dining Room

Dining areas are great places to hang wreaths around the house. Get ready to host memorable meals with a 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.

Complement your tablescape with a wreath at the buffet table. This ties in the look of your decorating theme. Add an accent by placing a matching wreath at the base of a cake stand or serving platter.


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

Decorating Tip: Display it with an empty picture frame (find a beautiful one at thrift stores or recycle an old one you no longer use) for a customized twist.

Another idea is to hang a pair of wreaths on closet doors to add pops of color. Or, use them to bring a seasonal touch into your bathroom area.

Decorating Tip: Stick an adhesive hook upside down at the back of the door. Position the wreath in front of the door. Loop a string or ribbon through the wreath and tie the ends. Then go over the door and attach the string to the hook at the back.
