Everything You Need to Know About Outdoor Wreaths

When choosing an outdoor wreath, there are a few different things to learn and consider. Let’s break down everything you need to know about outdoor wreaths.

Different Types of Outdoor Wreaths

To create a gorgeous, natural, and inviting feel, outdoor wreaths are typically made of evergreens, flowers, and other botanicals

If you are searching for a floral wreath/flower wreath, consider choosing a hydrangea wreath, magnolia wreath, peony wreath, tulip wreath, forsythia wreathdaisy wreath, or something with sunflowers like the Sunflower Season.

If you are looking for a more “natural” or simple look, you may opt for a lavender wreath, lemon wreath, berry wreath, boxwood wreath, eucalyptus wreath, grapevine wreath, or a simple leaves wreath. Our Classic Green Myrtle is a beautiful greenery wreath, and the Garden Romance provides a natural look with just a pop of gorgeous color.

Seasonal wreaths are a fun way to change how you decorate your home; spring wreaths, summer wreaths, fall wreaths, and winter wreaths are available in a wide range of styles. Perhaps consider the Simply Scarlet for a gorgeous pop of color and then transition to the Pacific Warmth for a warm fall-like feel. A holiday wreath - such as a Christmas wreath that matches your Christmas decor, a Valentine’s Day wreath, Mother’s Day wreath, or a Halloween wreath - is a fantastic way to enjoy the festivities.

Artificial Wreaths are also an option for those who want the look of a natural wreath without the need to replace it each season.

Materials Used to Make Wreaths

The best materials to make door wreaths for outdoor elements include wire and vines to provide a sturdy base.

Materials commonly used to make wreaths include grapevine, burlap, green leaves, magnolia leaves, fresh eucalyptus leaves, mesh, wire, succulents, and even artificial flowers.

 Wreath Size Options

For a standard 36-inch door, a small front door wreath is best;  wreath sizes range between 20 and 30 inches in diameter. 24” is usually the sweet spot.

A 36-inch wreath will create a dramatic and stylish statement if you are styling for a large entryway.

Avoid choosing a wreath flush with both edges of the door, as this can lead to damage or limited accessibility.

How to Hang an Outdoor Wreath

Hanging an outdoor wreath is incredibly simple. Rather than damaging your front door with nails or screws, opt for a stylish wreath hanger that hangs over your door and provides a large hook for your wreath.

Hang the hanger over the door and place the wreath on the hook. When you’re ready to switch it out, remove the wreath and put a new one in its place.
