Frequently Asked Questions
Below are questions and answers to the most common topics about wreaths and how to decorate your home with them.
What Does a Wreath on the Front Door Mean?
Back in the 16th century, wreaths were a symbol of hope and spring during the winter season. It’s also believed that they’re hung on the front door to invite the spirit of Christmas to enter the home. These days, wreaths can be used to decorate the front door, whether it’s spring, fall, or winter.
What Size Wreath Should I Put on My Front Door?
Measure the height and width of your front door. A wreath should cover 50 to 75% of the door’s width and shouldn’t be wider or taller than the hanging surface. Allot about 6 inches of space on each side of the wreath for a standard-sized door. Choose a bigger wreath and leave at least 2 inches of space on each side for a dramatic effect.
How Do I Hang a Wreath on My Front Door?
Use a wreath hook for your front door to make decorating easier and more convenient. This way, you won’t have to worry about damage from adhesives or screws.
What Can I Put on My Front Door Instead of a Wreath?
Swags and hanging baskets are great alternatives if you’re looking for ways to decorate your front door other than with a wreath. Check our collection of Christmas swags and teardrops, and you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for your home.
