The best outdoor wreaths are the all natural and the silk florals with a natural base. They look the closest to fresh and they can withstand the weather conditions the best if placed under a covered porch or an indented doorway. The silk florals will fade in direct sunlight. Dried floral wreaths will fall apart in the weather increments. Now, I'm not suggesting not getting a wreath for your front door because of the weather conditions. I am suggesting to protect your wreath and your finances by using common sense in protecting them during these hard times. Also, speaking of common sense, when purchasing your wreath, be sure to ask for the box. You will need it for storing your wreath.
Decorating with outdoor wreaths can add just the right touch and look to a home while making it an inviting place for your family and friends. However, be sure to be careful when choosing outdoor wreaths. How they're made and what they're made out of will determine their sturdiness and longevity.
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 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.
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.
