Types of Wreaths

Types of Wreaths

Much like the holiday tree, the holiday wreath is an iconic image that homeowners have used for decades. While the classic evergreen wreath is still a beautiful decorating standby, today's push toward personalized holiday accents has opened wide the options for all types and styles of wreaths. And homeowners aren't limited to one wreath on the front door. In addition to traditional versions, there are advent wreaths, swags, centerpieces, specialty shapes, and specialty materials. Review this list of the types of wreaths to find the one—or ones—that work for your home.

Traditional

Traditional wreaths are typically made from some sort of evergreen material and fashioned into a circular shape.

Advent Wreaths

Advent wreaths resemble traditional wreaths, but with one important distinction: They have candles (either real or battery- or electric-powered) that homeowners light to recognize the passing of the advent calendar.

Swags

Although inspired by the materials of traditional wreaths, swags differ in form. They are typically vertically oriented and gathered at or near the top.

Centerpieces

Some wreaths are designed to lie flat on a surface, such as a dining table or side table, to be used as a focal point. The wreath may surround a vase of flowers or a collection of candles.

Specialty Shapes

Wreaths may also be shaped into distinct forms that call to mind holiday images, such as a candy cane.

Specialty Materials

Wreaths are no longer made strictly of evergreen sprigs or other plant materials. Some wreaths are created from a variety of items, such as jingle bells, felt flowers, or paper.

Product Features

Product Features

No two wreaths are created the same. What differentiates them is not just the type but the product features that give them their special flair and beauty. And a wreath with features appropriate for the front door may differ greatly from one that works on the tabletop or over the mantel. When you start your hunt for the wreath or wreaths you need this season, review considerations such as fresh or faux flowers and greenery; hangers; dried materials; accents; and pre-lit wreaths. Here's how to sort through the product features that will influence your purchase.

Fresh or Faux Flowers and Greenery

The plant materials used to make many wreaths can be real or fake. Real evergreens, foliage, or flowers will not last beyond the season, but they often provide a welcoming scent or feel. While faux materials will not have those fresh qualities, they will last for multiple years.

Hangers

If a wreath is to be hung on a wall or door, it should have a convenient hanger—either a hook or some other mechanism—that will not damage the surface behind it.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

A wreath is often the face of your home at the holidays: Placed on the front door, it establishes a welcome for friends and family and hints at the decorating inside. That's why you want to make sure any purchase works for your home, your budget, and your time constraints. Carefully review purchase considerations, including size, cost, style, and care and storage, to find a wreath that will last as long as you need it to and fit the style you want.

Size

Size is probably the biggest purchase consideration for wreaths. Measure the space where you intend to use the wreath before you buy it to ensure it will fit adequately.

Cost

Cost varies widely with wreaths. Size is certainly a factor, as is material (fake is not necessarily more or less expensive than real).

Style

Wreaths come in a range of styles, giving homeowners multiple options for an appropriate purchase. Contemporary wreaths may be made of silvery jingle bells, for example, while retro-inspired wreaths can be constructed of vintage-looking ornaments.

Care and Storage

Wreaths made from live greenery may have to be regularly spritzed with water to ensure they stay vibrant throughout the holiday. Faux wreaths will probably have to be dusted and stored in a cool, dry, dark spot to protect them from fading.
