For indoor wreaths the purchasing rules don't really apply here but you may consider the amount of direct sunlight on silk florals. Colors and textures are what indoor wreaths are about. You can use a wreath like a piece of art work in any room of the house. They can add a focal point or a just a soft compliment to the overall decor. Indoor wreaths can bring an ambiance of comfort and relaxation, unity and peace, or warmth and friendship. Like the wedding ring, they symbolize unity among all who dwell there.
You've seen wreaths hanging on doors during the Christmas season. Evergreen or Holly boughs formed into a wreath shape, and decorated with holly berries or pine cones, or ribbons, or other embellishments.Well, wreaths are not only used for Christmas decorating anymore, and they are not just made of evergreen boughs anymore. You can find leaf wreaths, ribbon wreaths, or floral wreaths. You can find them in colors suitable for any season, not just Christmas.
Don't be afraid to embellish a wreath yourself. You can take a plain wreath, and add decorations to it, using craft glue, or craft wire to secure the embellishments. If you're more ambitious, you can always create your own wreath from scratch. Go to the craft store, and find a wreath base. These are usually foam or wood rings in various sizes. Buy a wreath base that suits your needs, and fasten boughs and leaves to it, then add other embellishments as desired. You can use artificial branches or leaves to create a wreath, or you can use real leaves. Soon, you'll find yourself with a wide variety of wreaths for any occasion.
The last thing you will want to do is clean your wreath at least once or twice a month. There are wreath cleaners available to do a great job cleaning your wreath while protecting it as well. Never put your wreath under running water or standing water. Use a hair dryer with a low cool setting to blow the dust off.
The first guideline in considering an outdoor wreath purchase is to determine where you want to hang it. There's the front door, the patio, the deck area and some folks like to put a wreath over the garage door. The best place to hang it is under a covered porch or an indented entry way. Looking at the surrounding area, we want to discern what the environmental conditions are around the designated hanging spot. Is it receiving direct sunlight and if so, then for how long? Will the rain and the wind affect the wreath?
