5 Steps to Selecting the Perfect Wreath
When it’s time to decorate for the holidays, there’s no better way to add a bit of seasonal flair than with a wreath. Wreaths can be made from various materials, including flowers, berries, and pinecones. They can also be used in many ways hung on doors or walls, placed above doors, or even placed inside windows as part of your holiday décor. In this article, we’ll show you how to choose the perfect wreath based on your budget, theme, and décor style so you can add some holiday magic to your home.
1. Pick a Theme
The first step in choosing a wreath is deciding what kind of theme for your front door. Focus on seasonality and decorating style. Do you want something that matches your current décor or blends with your existing décor? These are all crucial factors, but other things are worth considering.
2. Measure the Area
Measure the width of your door. How wide is it? Measure the length of your door. How long is it? Measure the height of your door. How tall is it? Measure the size of your wreath and see if that fits in the right place on your wall or inside a window frame.
3. Pick Your Greenery
Use fresh greenery. Freshly cut branches will look much more natural and hold their shape better than dried-out ones, which can be brittle and difficult to work with. Make sure to do it with the amount of greenery you use. If you’re going for an all-green wreath, then be sure not to cover every inch of your front door with lush greens.
4. Don’t Ignore the Extras
Don’t forget to add a bow or ribbon when it comes to wreath-making. When you’re done with the wreath, don’t dawdle when adding a small gift or sign. When choosing extras, find some that will match your decor inside. So stay within the same style of ornaments and colors to keep everything cohesive.
5. Test Your Design
You don’t want to spend a lot of time and money on something you don’t like, so it’s best to test your design before you go all in. If you’re working with a natural person, whether the florist at your local grocery store or an amateur artist friend, ask them for guidance on what might look best before buying anything. If you’re working alone, try to place all the details on the wreath before you leave the store to ensure you like it.
Make It Fun!
