Wreath Decorating for Fall

Updated on August 20, 2013

A Wreath Over The Fire Place

A Must For Your Front Door

Maybe you are not big on decorating for the seasons. Perhaps you like to keep your home decorations simple. Fine and good, but you must have a wreath on your front door to announce this glorious Fall Season. It is a favorite time of year, with the cooling temperatures and colorful leaves on the trees. There is a crispness in the air that is refreshing and energizing. What better way to add warmth to your home than to decorate the front door with a Fall Wreath.

Fall Wreaths come in many shapes and sizes. Some are brighter than others, some more earth toned and subdued. Whatever your likes, there is one to fit your home.

Choose Your Favorite

Amazon offers some beautiful wreaths, delivered to your door. If you can't afford to buy one, go to your local craft store to buy a wreath to decorate. A glue gun and some decorations can make an inexpensive and beautiful decoration for your front door. Be sure to spray paint your finished work of art with some gold or silver to add dimension and sparkle to your work of art. It will add a finishing touch that you will enjoy for many years.

There are so many rich colors of leaves to choose from. The colored leaves form the backdrop for your decorative wreath and blending your leaf color with your home colors will look best. I purchased a large over-the-door hook to hang my wreath on the front door.


Bows For Wreaths

A beautiful ribbon will add a finishing touch to your wreath. The wreath is beautiful, but a bow adds some variety and color to your wreath. Some come pre-made and others can be made and attached to your wreath. Most wreaths that you buy have bows or ribbon of some type already in the wreath.

Now Is The Time To Make Your Purchase

Fall is here and now is the time to find your wreath. Enjoy every moment of this season because it is over too soon.

When the season ends, keep your wreath in a safe place. I sometimes hang my Fall wreath in the house during the year. I have a large rustic wreath on my fire place. Occasionally I change the bow. It blends very well with the fireplace stone.

A hat box or plastic bag would be great protective coverings. Find a shelf, a wall, or other safe place to keep your new treasure when not in use! Enjoy your Fall! I am!

    I am going to have to let my wife read this one. She loves wreaths. She has been known to make her own and she goes a really good job for the most part. I do think a wreath makes a home look more "lived in". Another great post.
