Where Can You Hang a Holiday Wreath – Home Decor Tips?

Since Christmas is fast approaching, many home owners are planning their Holiday festivities.  In my house, we always decorate for Christmas as a family and enjoy using both “old” and “new” decorations to complete the look.

Wreaths have always been a favorite Holiday decoration for us because they are so versatile and can be used for many different occasions.  A wreath can vary in size from 10-12 inches to up to 30 inches and can be decorated with anything from pine-cones to silk ribbons.  Smaller wreathes can be used on Holiday tables as centerpieces or even hung on a window for some added festiveness.

Here are some great uses for Holiday wreathes:


Love the apples on this wreath. {Bing Image}

Another great use for a wreath.{}


I just want to sip hot chocolate in this room.     {Houzz}

Great holiday decor. {}

Where are you planning to place your Holiday wreaths this season?
