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.
Once you decide which wreath you want for your front door that's when the fun begins. So often times, people will plant their front flower beds and then try to purchase their wreath. You may find less frustration if you purchase the wreath you want with the colors you love and then find the bedding plants to enhance and compliment the wreath. A nursery will have more options in colors and textures than your wreath supplier.
The reason why it's so important to get the answers to these questions is to know what kind of wreath will do well where you want to hang it. There are some all natural twig bases with various natural dried grasses that hang quite beautifully on front doors however even those are subject to the weather conditions. Some people prefer the natural beauty of eucalyptus which also comes with a wonderful natural scent. However, the sad thing about eucalyptus wreaths today is that many manufacturers will dye the eucalyptus to get all those luscious colors. What happens is the dye will run down their front door when the rain hits it. In some cases, I have seen the dye run when the humidity is real high. To be safe it's best not to use eucalyptus outdoors.
When it comes to decorating with the wreaths, you have more options than simply hanging a wreath on the door. Look around your house. Are there any bare spots on the wall that could use a wreath? Perhaps hang some in the windows. A wreath would make a great centerpiece for your dining table or coffee table. Just lay a wreath in the middle, and fill the center of the wreath with candles or other decorations to match the season. Smaller wreaths can be used in a similar way on a bare spot on your bookshelf or end table. Just use your imagination. If there's a gap in your decor, chances are, a wreath would fit in well.
Choosing the colors is usually determined by matching or complimenting the largest piece of furniture or artwork in the room. There are also themed wreaths available like diaper wreaths for the baby's room, culinary wreaths for the kitchen or dining room. There are wedding, spring, summer, fall and winter wreaths, holiday wreaths as well as garage wreaths. If you look hard enough you can find almost any kind of wreath.
