How To Choose An Outdoor Wreath For Your Front Door

Choosing a wreath for your front door is an important decision. It's the first thing people see when they arrive at your house, and it can make or break the impression you want to give them. The best way to choose is to know what type of wreaths are available, which ones will work best with the front door of your home, and how to care for them. Once you’ve learned about the many types of outdoor wreaths, be sure to take a look at our beautiful outdoor wreath collection.

Type of Wreaths

The most common types of front door wreaths are made from evergreens, myrtle,  boxwood, eucalyptus, hydrangea, peony, magnolia, eucalyptus leaves, forsythia, pine cones, red berries, wildflowers, and magnolia leaves. Wreaths such as an evergreen  Christmas wreath, boxwood wreath, or grapevine wreath are the most popular and can be found in a variety of styles. Dried flower wreaths, such as a tulip wreath, lavender wreath, or hydrangea wreath, add a touch of elegance and can be customized to match any décor, and they can be enjoyed indoors for many seasons. Living plant wreaths such as berry wreaths are a unique option used indoors or outdoors.

Size and Shape

When choosing a wreath, pay attention to the size and shape of your door. If you have a small door, you may want to select a smaller wreath. If you have an oversized door, you can go with a bigger wreath or one that has a more dramatic design. If you have double doors in your home’s entryway, displaying two of the same style, side by side, makes an impressive welcome. Ensure that you select an outdoor use wreath, as some are only meant to be used inside your entryway or living room. For a standard-sized door, our 26” evergreen wreaths are a perfect size. Our larger 32” wreaths really make an impact in larger spaces such as on bigger doors, barns, outdoor spaces, fences, and above fireplaces and mantels. Most of our wreaths come in two sizes. Our Country Christmas wreath is a great example of a wreath that is available in both a 26” size and a 32” size. 


Wreaths come in many color schemes, so you'll want to choose one that compliments your home's exterior. If you have a colorful home, go with a wreath with a more subdued color palette. Our Three Cedars wreath is a simple, natural wreath that has the option to add a colored bow. This wreath would be beautiful in a colorful home. If your home is primarily neutral, you can choose a brighter wreath to add some contrast and a splash of eye-catching color. Brilliant Berries is a gorgeous, bright wreath that will stand out in a neutral home. Our Premium Red wreath with its red bow and shiny red ball ornaments would also be beautiful in a simple or neutral home. With many wreath features to choose from, you’re certain to find one to match your aesthetic.

Time Of The Year

When choosing an outdoor wreath, it's essential to consider the time of year. For example, are you looking for a colorful spring wreath to spruce up our spring decor for Easter or Mother’s day, or do you prefer a winter wreath to show off your Christmas holiday decor for the holiday season? Front door decor isn’t limited to wintertime; you can even find handcrafted summer wreaths such as floral wreaths or eucalyptus wreaths, which are easy to spruce up your summer home decor. There are many options for outdoor decor for your front door, whether you’re looking for seasonal decor for Halloween or long-lasting, lifelike wreaths for summertime.

Care and Maintenance

When it comes to caring for your wreath, there are a few things to consider. If you have  a fresh evergreen wreath, it will need to be spritzed with water every few days to keep it fresh. It’s also important to keep it out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources. Dried flower wreaths should be kept indoors and away from direct sunlight and away from heat sources as well. Living plant wreaths will need to be watered daily. Be sure to follow the care instructions with your wreath to ensure it lasts all season.
