Stunning Wreath Decorating Ideas to Adorn Your Home All Season Long

by Hannah Tan

When it comes to festive decor, wreaths are undoubtedly one of the most popular and classic options to bring holiday cheer to your home. And with so many different options, from classic florals to show-stopping festive ornaments, decorating with wreaths doesn’t have to be limited to just the holidays – with a few simple swaps, you can seamlessly transition your wreaths to suit the season. 

We rounded up experts from Victoria, BC, to Tampa, FL, for their best wreath decorating ideas to adorn your home. Whether your style is whimsical and playful or rustic and organic, take a look at these wreath design ideas to find one (or a couple) that’ll speak to your home’s aesthetic.


Take your wreaths from holiday to everyday with these wreath design ideas

1) When you’re finished using your fireplace for the season, dress it up for spring and summer with a wreath. Simply hang a wreath on your fireplace screen or from a ribbon below your mantel. Not only will your living space feel brighter for the warmer weather, but your home will also feel more alive with color and greenery. –Clover And Honey

2) Grapevine wreaths are everlasting and easy to dress up according to the season. In autumn, we recommend tucking in dried flowers and leaves from your garden. When winter comes, swap out the dried items with fresh evergreen boughs and a festive bow. Come spring, we love using bleached dried stems for something bright and airy. –Yarrow & Spruce

3) Consider your front door an extension of your home and add some personality to it. Hang an everyday or neutral wreath that shows off your personality and that you can switch out for seasonal designs. Not a lot of storage space? Utilize different bows on a neutral wreath to give a different look each season. –Welcomes To Adore

4) To use your wreath year-round, choose neutral colors or colors that match your home decor and change out textured ribbons or bows seasonally. Find beautiful dried botanicals from your local and American-grown flower farms. Adorn a mirror, hang two matching ones on old shutters framing a family photo, spice up a home office wall, or fill in that empty space above the mantle. Wreaths are an inviting decor element that can extend past the seasons. –Petals By The Shore

5) Add a unique detail to your holiday decor with a faux floral wreath. Hang a wreath with faux flowers to the back of each of your dining room chairs. Keep the wreath colors neutral and simply change the ribbon depending on the holiday or season. –Springbank Designs

6) Jazz up your staircase this Christmas with small artificial cedar wreaths to incorporate seasonal decor in a typically neglected area. For a touch of personality, use a ribbon to hang the wreaths along the length of your banister. The best part, it’s affordable, and you can store the wreaths to use again next year. –All Things Amore

7)  Wreaths are an easy and affordable way to add color and visual interest to your home.  There’s always a wreath on our front door (and many interior doors too) year-round, and I switch them out with the holidays and seasonsAnother favorite way to use wreaths, especially during the holiday season, is to tie them to the backs of counter stools with a pretty ribbon. I also hang wreaths on top of mirrors with wall hooks — there’s really no place a wreath can’t go in your home if you have a vision for it. –First House On Finn

Incorporate different styles and materials for a one-of-a-kind piece

8) Dress up a plain space with a wreath by placing wreaths in different styles and sizes throughout your home for an instant cozy feel. Place them over mirrors, blanket ladders, kitchen cabinets, or tie them on the back of dining room chairs. –Pretty Rustic Wreath

9) Culinary herb wreaths make wonderful additions to any kitchen space. Bay leaf, rosemary, oregano, and thyme all work wonderfully to create a herb-themed wreath to hang from a cabinet door front and add a little spice to your kitchen decor. You can even use pieces of it in your cooking. –Foxgloves Flowers

10) Add dried oranges, apple slices, and cinnamon sticks to make your wreath smell deliciously fragrant and to reflect the ingredients you might be using in your seasonal recipes. Even if you wouldn’t usually decorate the kitchen for Christmas, the wreath lends a festive feel to the spaceWe spend a lot of time in the kitchen over the festive period, making tasty treats and preparing warming meals, so I like to hang a wreath in an alcove in my kitchen. You could switch up the decorations on the wreath for other occasions too, such as using pretty eggs and blossoms for Easter. –My Thrifty Life By Cassie Fairy

11) Take a close look at your home’s color palette and incorporate those tones into your wreath to give it a cohesive feel. Dried wreaths can add such textural depth to your home, and choosing natural hues will help them stand the test of time and be everlasting. –Heirloom Florals

12) Warm up any space with a neutral basket wreath. Simply loop twine or festive ribbon through the top of a tall and thin basket to create a hanging handle and layer your favorite faux or real florals to bring a mixture of cozy neutrals and seasonal florals to any wall. Frustrated that your wreath is fading after several sunny seasons? Lay your wreath in a well ventilated area, and spray it with an outdoor clear sealer spray to keep those colors brighter year after year. –Brush + Bloom Home

13) Incorporate natural elements in seasonal wreaths. Adding dried flowers or foraged natural materials to an evergreen wreath adds interest and makes your wreath one of a kind. Whether you prefer a monochromatic or bright mix, there’s a wreath maker out there for you. Get yourself and your home something special and unique. –River Road Flowers

14) Instead of traditional harvest wreaths of red and orange foliage or holiday wreaths of evergreen and a blast of colors, you can create a more timeless and natural look by selecting a wreath that is lifelike with subtle autumn colors. Look for wreaths with browns and golds and decorated with botanical species that signify the holidays, such as pine cones or mistletoe. –Silk Flower Depot

Creative places to hang wreaths in your home

15) Consider placing a wreath on your kitchen pantry door, on the vent hood above the stove, powder room door, resting on the fireplace mantle, or over a mirror. Wreaths are a perfect year-round home accent for more than just your front door. Choose a year-round wreath of simple greenery such as boxwood, lambs ear, or magnolia leaves. Then, accent seasonally with different bows or tucking in seasonal items such as flowers, ornaments, and family photos. –The Lone Starbarn

16) Split a larger floral arrangement into two smaller arrangements and place them both in the same room. Having multiple arrangements with the same flower styles will tie the room together in a subtle but intentional way, making the room look and feel balanced. You can also DIY your arrangements to help keep your home fresh, cozy, and festive for the holiday season. –Poppy Flowers

17) Design a garden-rich experience inside your minimalistic space and home by hanging a unique garden-style wreath with deep leafy foliage, and faux moss, succulent plants, and flowers to create a lush passageway experience down the main entrance of your home. This design idea can be a magical way to infuse your cozy master bathroom with a spa-like experience surrounded by green vines and plants. It’s also an excellent choice to create a lavish green artificial wall at a festive garden party or special event. –Biosphere Dome Wreaths

DIY wreath ideas to add texture and greenery to your home

18) DIYers looking for a quick wreath refresh should opt for a grapevine wreath. They are versatile in their styling, affordable, and easy to use and reuse. Check dollar stores for ribbon, seasonal decor, and signs to create the perfect grapevine wreath without breaking the bank. Whether used outdoors or in, wreaths are often the first thing a visitor notices, so it’s important to choose something that adds to your existing style or design, not distracts from it.. –Southern Diva Interior Designs

19) Dress up inexpensive, mass-produced wreaths for a high-end look and to display your unique style. One of my favorite things is to add a new ribbon, florals, or greens to inexpensive wreaths or arrangements. While at the grocery, home store, or second-hand store, I am constantly hunting for my next piece to upgrade. –aDOORable Deco Decor
