If you're all decked out for Christmas this year but have a niggling feeling that something is missing, then this is your sign to buy that Christmas wreath if you haven't already. Haven't got a front door that looks out onto neighbours? No problem: you can use a wreath inside and out. In fact, they look super cute inside, whether to decorate an interior door or hanging above a fireplace that is. From the prettiest styles trending this season — think feathers, faux foliage, and literal bells and whistles — to classic looks and lots more, you are in the right place for inspiration. I am the style editor at Real Homes and these are the nine Christmas wreaths I would bestow on my own front door. 

If you are still buying Christmas bits, see our ultimate guide on where to buy Christmas decor in 2022 — we've also featured tonnes of inspiration. Once you've picked your wreath, you might want to give our guide on how to hang a wreath a little read. 

I can confirm that you will actually be spoilt for choice this year.

What makes a good Christmas wreath?

When you've found a good wreath, it really can add so much depth to your Christmas holiday display. And if you're not that into decorations, just one awesome wreath may be all your space needs for festive feels. 

"A Christmas Wreath on your front door really adds the finishing touch to your home," says Jack Anderson, assistant plant manager at Squire's Garden Centers (opens in new tab). "Choose a real wreath adorned with cinnamon sticks and pine cones or an artificial wreath, some of which even come with LED lights wrapped around them to twinkle on your front door."

Otherwise, we say that you can use a wreath in the centre of your table, with candles in the middle. We also love to use a wreath hanging on an interior wall. Above a fireplace makes the perfect place, should you have an empty space that is. The bigger the better in this case.

With so many options to choose from when it comes to finding your Christmas wreath, we spoke to Sheva Knopfler, co-founder and creative director of Lights.com (opens in new tab) for her know-how on what to look for. She advises to consider the size of your door, whether the wreath can be covered, and its hanging mechanism before deciding which wreath will suit you. 

"If your door is under a covered porch, or if you have a storm door, you could protect your wreath from autumn rain and wind," says Knopfler. "If not, you will need a sturdier, weather-proof wreath. You should also consider the color of your door and the foliage around it. What colors you'd like to 'pop' in your decor? If your door is visible from the street at night, it might be a nice touch to have a lit wreath."

When should you hang a Christmas wreath?

There is no blanket rule for when to put up your Christmas wreath, but we'd suggest keeping it in time with when the weather changes. As soon as autumn is on its way out, think about decorating to mark the start of the festive season. Lots of people hang festive wreaths and garlands right after Halloween.
