Holiday Wreaths: 7 Charming Ways to Decorate with Them!

Holiday wreaths are a great way to decorate for the season. They’re charming and modern, and bring cheer to any space you hang them!

There are so many things to love about Christmas – from the music, to the lights, to the tree, but I must say, one of my biggest loves, is holiday wreaths. They are such a welcoming sight hanging on a door; there is nothing that sends quite the same message! I love that they are old-fashioned, yet modern at the same time.

There are lots of wreaths to love, but the simpler the better for me. If they are adorned with a simple ribbon or a few natural elements, that is beautiful.  

And I love that they bring the holidays wherever you put them…


On a Front Door

The front door is probably the most classic location, and one of the prettiest!

Over a Fireplace

Another classic spot – and probably my favorite!

Hung on a Mirror

A mirror is one of the prettiest places to hang a wreath – creating even more greenery in the reflection.

Hung on Cabinets 

But you can also hang wreaths on more unexpected places! From furniture to lighting, they add charm anywhere you put them!

Hung on Furniture 

Whether on a chair, a cabinet, or a bookshelf, wreaths look great added to furniture!

Hung on a Wall

If you don’t have a fireplace, or simply as a replacement for art, a wreath can be hung directly on wall for maximum impact!

Hung on Windows

Classic – and especially charming!

I especially love when wreaths are placed on each window facing the street so that when you drive by, they just say “Come on in and stay awhile!”

  1. This is a favorite post of mine and I look forward to Fridays knowing I will get inspiration from you. The wreath section is outstanding and so informative. Thanks.

  2. I love the wreaths hanging on your dining room chairs. Iโ€™m actually looking for chairs like the two at the ends of your table. Can you tell where you got them. Love all your post by the way. I canโ€™t wait to open it when I see it in my inbox.

    Loved all these!! The photo of the house with the pale brick and cream trim and wreaths on the door and all windows was a favorite. Are those pears tucked in? Thanks for sharing, though.

    1. I’m so glad you found them inspiring! And yes, I do think there are pears on that one – it’s so gorgeous!!

      Happy Holidays!


  4. Hope you have a beautiful holiday with your family Shelley! Thanks for all of your kindness and support:)


  5. Good for you Cindy! Simple is beautiful, I think. And how nice that you are at the lake this year! That house is so pretty, and it's so chilly this year, combined with the beauty it must feel very Christmas-y!!

    Have a wonderful holiday!


  6. Thanks Des! Happy Holidays to you and yours!


  7. You're right, that last photo is Christmas perfection! Actually, all the wreath inspiration photos are beautiful! Enjoy your weekend!

  8. I agree! I was so tempted to just hang the wreaths and forget the tree this year. I arrived here at the lake after many weeks of absense. I foraged greens threw them on the fireplace and added some to a couple of bowls and called it Christmas!!

  9. I too love wreaths….from the simple ones to the extravagant ones, I love them all!!!! Beautiful inspiration pics!!!! Have a great weekend……
