A staple of home decorating, a festive wreath is often given pride of place on our front doors to welcome guests and celebrate the season. What many don’t realize is that artificial home decor wreaths can work as beautiful accents all year round, and not just on doorways or empty walls. These inspired Christmas wreath ideas allow you to get more use out of your seasonal décor and will surely impress guests who come visit any time of the year.
It’s time to think beyond the four walls of your space when decorating with foliage. Wreaths are versatile accents that work just as well when laid flat instead of hung. Consider these ideas:
Table Wreath Centerpieces
Wreath centerpieces are a classy way to add a warm and rustic touch to your tablescapes or coffee table décor. Displaying a traditional lantern or grouping of flameless LED candles on your table helps create a cozy ambiance but when accented with a wreath, it instantly becomes a striking centerpiece. You can also pair wreaths with glass cloches filled with flowers or trinkets to form a chic vignette.
Cake Stand Base
A cake on a pedestal for a garden party is always a charming presentation. Take it a step further by adding a wreath to the base to create an eye-catching centerpiece. Any of Balsam Hill’s fall wreaths is a great choice – it adds a delightful rustic touch to the table, but this idea works for any occasion. Imagine how adorable a spring wreath under a Mother’s Day cake will look, or your family’s signature dessert or dish highlighted by a festive Christmas wreath.
Turn your wreath into attractive wall art by combining it with a spare picture frame or chalkboard. Choose the right frame to go with the room’s decorating theme or use the chalkboard to provide dramatic contrast to the wreath’s foliage.
The next step is simple: Hang your wreath right on the frame or position it on the wall before placing the empty frame. To avoid leaving holes in your walls, use non-damaging adhesive hooks instead of nails or screw-in hooks.
Similarly, you can frame a simple wall clock with a wreath to add a little more visual interest to a plain timepiece.
Add a homey touch to your dining room by hanging a small wreath behind each chair. When entertaining, you can even use them as place cards by clipping a name tag to each wreath.
Hanging wreaths on a mirror creates an elegant vignette in your entryway or powder room. Place the wreath directly on your wall mirror using small adhesive hooks. Situate it slightly off-center for an even more charming look.
