A Christmas Wreath for Your Front Door
Christmas comes in the middle of winter and it’s a time when the natural world has starkly changed. Trees and plants have lost much of their greenery and it’s only the durable pines that retain their iconic needles. Flowers are sparse but we are treated to stunning frosty mornings, landscapes covered with dew, icicles, and snow, and a bleak colour pallet that can be truly mesmerising with whites, greys, browns, and blacks.
Christmas wreaths in most instances try to inject a little colour and life into our homes. As a result, many of our products feature pine needles, ferns, winter foliage, and holly branches. You can also expect vibrant red and orange berries, and even things like tried orange slices.
Aside from the natural elements, many Christmas wreaths feature manmade objects appropriate for the season like miniature bells and presents, ribbons, glitter, and even tinsel. Some can serve as an extension to your Christmas tree and may even have festive fairy lights or candle lights attached. The possibilities are endless and you can easily find a Christmas wreath to suit your tastes – whether that is traditional, natural, or modern.
Some Christmas Wreaths use restrained colour pallets to a great effect. For example, you can get wreaths that emulate the colder winter weather and contain lighter greens, whites, and greys. Alternatively, some are much more colourful and feature silver and gold to represent the traditional stories behind Christmas like the three wise men.
Whether you want the challenge of maintaining a natural Christmas wreath or the simplicity and longevity of an artificial model we have them both!
How to Care for a Christmas Wreath?
Once you have hung it, consider tweaking the items to give it a fuller look and to make sure it doesn’t look flat. Regular watering is also essential to prevent the natural items from drying out. Ideally you should have a small spray bottle that you can use to mist the Christmas wreath daily.
If bad weather is expected it’s essential to protect your wreath too. If it is left out in heavy rain or wind, the natural pieces could get damaged or even break off completely.
How to Hang a Wreath?
Hanging hooks fit over the top of your door and lock in place when your door is shut. On the front, a metal strip hangs down to the ideal position on your door and you can hang your Christmas wreath from the end.
Magnets do require a little more effort to use and you may need two people to install them. Basically, you place a magnet either side of the door and the magnetic attraction sticks them together through the door material. The front magnet then has a hook attached do it that you hang your Christmas wreath from, easy!
How Long Will a Christmas Wreath Last?
Artificial wreaths last much longer and in theory can last indefinitely providing that you take care of them. The main point to consider for artificial Christmas wreaths is storage – try to store them in a padded container or wrapped up lightly so the individual items can’t get damaged and broken.
What Size Wreath Should I Buy?
It’s still prudent to measure your door first, or the wall space where you want to hang the Christmas wreath. All you need to do is subtract 5-10 inches from the measurement and you should get something that looks fantastic and fills the space aesthetically.
Artificial vs Real
In contrast, real Christmas wreaths need care and attention as you have to water them and replace items that die or lose their shine. Also, real wreaths don’t last as long and you can’t typically use them for multiple seasons. They look and smell incredible however and you can’t beat the realism of a real Christmas wreath.
