There are a lot of places you can spruce up with a wreath. The front door is usually considered the best place to hang this versatile décor piece, given that it instantly creates a welcoming ambience. However, 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 for many seasons.
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.

Add flair to your porch with a floating wreath display. While hanging wreaths with thin rope will do the trick, considering using ribbon to add a decorative touch. Attach them to your porch railings, columns, or on the walls of your veranda using a wreath hook. Then, cluster varying sizes of wreaths in the same or complementary hues.

Your windows are also interesting locations for wreaths. Place them in the center of each window and leave four to six inches of clear space on both sides. Another option is to choose a wreath that fits the entire width of the window frame for a dramatic effect.
Bring effortless charm to your outdoor lounging spaces with coordinated foliage. Many of Balsam Hill’s artificial wreaths are available with matching garlands and other greenery. Not only do these complementary pieces make it easy for you to create a uniform look, but they also allow you to get your home ready for entertaining at a moment’s notice.

Balsam Hill’s outdoor-safe foliage items are UV-protected to prevent color fading and damage from the weather. In order to keep them at the height of their beauty, display 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.

Having a wreath in your entryway is not only a great way to welcome guests, but it also leaves a lasting impression. One quick display tip is to use a wreath hook, but a coat hook works, too. Also, a wreath breaks the monotony of a bare hallway. Hang one on the banister or beside the staircase to decorate this high-traffic area.

The dining area is one of the best spots to hang wreaths. Coupled with a lovely meal, a breakfast nook adorned with foliage will make you wake up to beautiful mornings. For dinner events, on the other hand, thoughtful details like small wreaths on the backs of chairs with name cards will give your setup a thoughtful and personal touch.
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.

Also, consider adding 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. If you don’t have one, you can also make your own. Start by mounting an adhesive hook upside down on the back of the door. Then, position your wreath in front of the hook and tie a string or ribbon around it. Finally, hang the string over the door and attach it to the hook at the back.
