One of the most popular outdoor wreaths is the door wreath. Most people think of using wreaths at Christmas time but the great thing about wreaths is that they can be used in every season, year around.
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?
Decorating gorgeous door wreaths on the front door has been like a tradition, if not mandatory. For years, door wreaths have been a part of different Christmas festivities because of its pleasant and cheerful appearance. They are undoubtedly the best accessories to hang on both indoors and outdoors spaces. Furthermore, door wreaths are very easy to use, offers a good number of decorating concepts and above else, they are absolutely affordable. Aside from doors, wreaths can be also placed practically anywhere and combined with other ornaments like lighting, Christmas angels, candles, bells and lanterns.
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.
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.
