Although wreaths are generally associated with decorating the front door, the many ways to use indoor wreaths is only limited by your imagination and creativity. If you’re looking for ideas to decorate your home with wreaths, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to know that there are numerous ways to use decorative indoor wreaths.
Decorating the Fireplace Mantle with Indoor Wreaths
The fireplace mantle is traditionally the most popular way to use indoor wreaths. Decorating the fireplace mantle with a wreath makes the fireplace the focal point in the room. Make sure that the wreath is not too small. Otherwise, it’ll detract attention away from the fireplace instead of making it the focal point.
Indoor Wreaths and Hallways
Although hallways are not traditionally decorated with wreaths, you can hang a wreath at the end of a long hallway. If you prefer, install a shelf on the wall to create a mantle-like appearance, and hang the wreath above the shelf. Decorate the shelf with candles, pictures or figurines. Limit the number of items to prevent clutter.
Decorating Interior Doors With Indoor Wreaths
Although not very popular, interior doors are also a good place to use indoor wreaths. For example, if you have a coat closet in the entryway, or foyer, an indoor wreath on the closet’s door is a practical way to add color.
If your dining room has a door, an indoor wreath on the door could add coziness and warmth to any occasion.
When selecting indoor wreaths for interior doors, aim to cover about 50 to 75 percent of the door’s width with the wreath. The door space on each side of the wreath will frame the wreath.
Center Pieces and Indoor Wreaths
Indoor wreaths also make ideal center pieces. Place a small wreath on the coffee table, dining table, sofa table, or hallway table. Position a vase or large candle in the center of the wreath.
If you’re decorating your dining table, a pillar candle on each side of the center piece will add softness to the arrangement. Use decorative candleholders for an elegant effect.
Indoor wreaths can enhance your home’s decor. You can purchase a wreath or make it yourself. If you purchase an indoor wreath but don’t like the ribbon or would like to add decorations, you can customize the wreath to match your color scheme and decorating style. Use indoor wreaths to decorate any area or room in your home. You’re not limited to the traditional ways of using wreaths. With a bit of creativity and imagination, you can come up with your own ideas for decorating with indoor wreaths.
