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.
As we move around town, one thing many homes have in common are the large number of wreaths hanging on the front door. We also have people who have the wrong kind of wreaths hanging on their front door. What many people don't know is an outdoor wreath for the front door can last much longer than they realize if purchased correctly. This is also true for indoor wreaths. I am going to share with you a few simple guidelines to help you in purchasing a beautiful wreath that will last more than just one season or perhaps even less.
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 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.
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?
