You might think that wreaths are just for Christmas, but think again! Decorative wreaths come in all colors and styles. If your door looks drab and spring is slow in coming, it might be time for a colorful wreath.

Today, it’s easy to find gorgeous, high-quality wreaths for spring and summer. Many are handcrafted with silk flowers. Think of these wreaths like a bouquet of blooms on your door. Others use pompoms or painted eggs to celebrate the season.

Wreaths today aren’t just a decoration — they’re “works of art,” according to many customers. And where better to hang a piece of art than on your own front door? You’ll see it every single day, and it will be the first thing visitors see when they come knocking.

There are hundreds of wreaths to choose from, and the selection can feel overwhelming. Luckily, we’ve rounded up a variety of five-star spring wreaths for you to choose from. From rainbow colors to wildflowers, they’ll add a splash of spring to your home.

How High Should A Wreath Hang On A Door?

How high should a wreath hang on a door?

Ideally, you’ll want to hang the center of your wreath at eye level. Like any work of art, a wreath is most appealing when it’s flush with a visitor’s gaze, and eye level is typically 57 inches from the ground.

There are many ways to hang a wreath, but the main three methods are: use an over-the-door wreath hanger, a nail, or a Command strip.

An over-the-door hanger is a simple, inexpensive strip of metal that hooks over the top of the door, then allows you to hang the wreath from the bottom hook. They rarely cause damage, and you can find one online or at your local hardware store. The only downside is that you can’t customize the length perfectly; doors with tight fittings may not be able to close when using a wreath hanger.

You can also go the old-fashioned route and use a nail. Measure 57 inches from the bottom of your door, then mark the spot with a pencil. Make sure the marked spot is in the center of the door when measuring horizontally. Hammer a nail in this spot, then hang your wreath here. Make sure you choose a nail that protrudes at least half an inch from the door after it’s been hammered in.

If a wreath hanger isn’t for you and you don’t want to damage your door, consider a Command hook. They hold to the door with extra-strong adhesive. As with the nail, mark the spot 57 inches from the ground with a pencil. Adhere the Command strip according to the manufacturer’s directions. Note that Command strips may still cause damage; when removed incorrectly, they’ll pull paint from the surface.

How Do You Protect Outdoor Wreaths?

How do you protect outdoor wreaths?

Most of our favorite wreath designs are perfect indoors or out. But if you’re hanging a decorative wreath outside, there are a few tips you should follow. Unlike a live Christmas wreath, faux greenery and decorative wreaths are vulnerable to discoloration. Here are a few tips to keep your wreaths safe all year long:

  1. Hang your wreath in a covered area. Most of the decorative wreaths we’ve chosen are listed as suitable for outdoors. That said, don’t hang a wreath directly in the elements. Small stems and blooms are vulnerable to strong wind, and many materials may mold if left in the rain.
  2. Check the material on your wreath. Many faux flowers on wreaths are made from UV-resistant fabric. You can also add a layer of UV resistance with a UV fabric sunblock spray.
  3. Add a line of glue to the cut ends of ribbons to prevent fraying. Tattered ribbon will make a beautiful wreath look tired. To prevent fraying, use superglue or a speciality product like a liquid seam sealer on the cut ends of ribbons. 
  4. Consider a spray sealant such as Scotchgard. A sealant is particularly helpful if your wreath was not made for the outdoors. It may also be helpful if your area is wet or humid. As with any product you spray on your wreath, test it on a small area of the material first. 

Are Wreaths Only For Christmas?

Are wreaths only for Christmas?

Christmas wreaths have their origins in the practice of trimming the holiday tree; in 16-century Europe, revelers would rework the spare evergreen trimmings into garlands for their doors. Today, not all wreaths are made from Christmas tree boughs. With a wide variety of wreaths to choose from, there’s no reason to limit your wreath decor to just Christmas.

Easter celebrates rebirth and rejuvenation, so what better way to honor the holiday than with spring flowers? Many wreaths today are crafted from gorgeous faux blooms. If you prefer Easter decor, consider a decoration crafted from painted Easter eggs.
