When it comes to decorating your house for Christmas, where else to start than your own front door? A festive Christmas wreath is a good way to set the tone for any guests during the holiday season and, if joined by neighbours, can create a truly striking experience for anyone wandering down your street. While the traditional Christmas wreath features holly and ivy, in recent years people have become more experimental with their designs opting for alternative looks for their door. Not sure what style you’re after? Read on for some wreath inspiration.
Different style Christmas wreaths
Nature Inspired Christmas Wreath
Let nature inspire your wreath this season and adorn your door with pieces of flora of all different types. The ivy and pine cones form a rustic base to this piece while dried oranges, cinnamon sticks and straw foliage add pops of colour.
Minimalist Christmas Wreath
If you’re after a more minimalist look, strip things back to just the dark green foliage. This festive flourish of eucalyptus is simple and elegant and provides a refreshing minty aroma every time the door is swung. The simple gold bow adds that extra sparkle whilst still maintaining a modest look.
White and Gold Christmas Colours
A traditional wreath not quite your style? Push the boundaries this Christmas and opt for something a little different. The combination of white foliage and metallic gold creates a striking piece that’s sure to draw people’s attention. Whilst not the classic green and red we all associate with the season, these colours definitely have us dreaming of a white Christmas.
Traditional Christmas Wreath
For many, sticking to tradition is a way to make it truly feel like Christmas every year. The dark green leaves and pops of red berries make this a truly classic Christmas wreath and provide a stunning piece for your front door.
Rustic Style Christmas wreath
If your home follows a more rustic style, a twig wreath is the perfect option. This design emulates warmth and nature, the hanging ferns and fabric bow provide a stunning alternative to the traditional, neat Christmas wreath.
Alternative places to hang wreaths
Thinking past your front door? There are several places where you can hang your Christmas wreath indoors so you can enjoy its festivity from inside your home.
Above your mantel piece
Hanging a wreath above your mantel piece can create a striking look in the centre of your living room. An array of other Christmas decorations can nestle either side of your wreath, think rustic wooden trees and little nativity figures for a truly festive scene.
In your hallway
Welcome guests into your home by creating a festive hallway. Hang your wreath above your coat rack or set it on a console table next to Christmas spiced candles or fragrance sticks.

Above your bed
When it comes to seasonal decorations, the bedroom often gets forgotten in favour of other more social rooms. Bring Christmas to every room of the house and hang a wreath above your bed or attach it to your bed board. Note: for a bedroom wreath, be careful not to use any glitters or dry wood that might flake while sleeping.
On the back of dining chairs
Smaller wreaths can be hung on the back of dining chairs to create the perfect setting for your Christmas meal. Similarly, you could choose a statement wreath centerpiece for your dining table to bring festivity to every meal this December.
