Each winter, front doors, living rooms, hallways and banisters alike usher in holiday spirit by bearing beautiful wreaths that deliver a fresh, green touch of the outdoors into homes across the country. In addition to spreading cheer, wreaths help create an earthy, warm vibe and boost a home’s coziness factor with their delicate lights, pretty florals, fresh evergreen scents and colorful ornaments — who says the Christmas tree should have all the fun?

To help you bring some bright plantlife into your home during Mother Nature’s usual off season, we’ve rounded up a selection of gorgeous real and faux wreaths that’ll make spirits bright. From basic and traditional lighted options to ornate and uniquely shaped choices, there’s a wreath on this list that’ll suit your budget and your decorating vision.

How to Hang a Wreath Without Damaging Your Home

It’s happened to all of us — we get so excited to put up our decorations that we don’t stop to consider the logistics of how we’re actually going to display them. While wreaths are beautiful and fit in just about anywhere in your home, you probably don’t want to simply set them on a table and let them be (although they do make great centerpieces when lying flat with a few battery-powered candles set in the middle). They’re meant to hang, and if that’s your plan, you’ll want to take a few things into consideration for installation.

Some homeowners make peace with the idea of holes in their walls and doors and opt to use nails and screws. While you might be comfortable with this — you can use them year-round for displaying other decor — what should you do if you’re renting or simply don’t want to riddle your door, window frames, walls or railings with holes? Thankfully, you can turn to plenty of other great ways to hang a wreath indoors and outside.

  • Magnetic Wreath Hangers: If you’ve got a glass or steel door, then a magnetic wreath hanger may be your best bet. These don’t require nails or screws, won’t scratch or rust, and can usually hold wreaths weighing up to 10 or so pounds. Using magnetic force, they secure directly to metal doors, and double-sided options stick to each other on windows, with one magnetic component outside and the other inside.
  • Wreath Hooks: Wreath hooks are another solid option for hanging a wreath on a door without tools. Just slip the flat section over the top of your door and place your wreath on the hook at the bottom.
  • Command Hooks: Command hooks are another great way to display wreaths, no matter where you want to hang them. They come in a wide variety of sizes, so be sure to take the weight of your wreath into account. You can hang them on pretty much any surface via their special adhesive backing that comes off easily without ruining painted surfaces.

A Classic Ornamented Wreath to Add a Splash of Color to Your Home

Usher in a traditional holiday season with this gorgeous 24-inch Christmas Classic Wreath. This impressive handcrafted design glows with the warmth of red and gold ornaments in a variety of sizes, and it’s a great choice for displaying either indoors or out thanks to its durable steel frame. Despite its completely lifelike look with different types of sprigs and boughs for plenty of visual interest, this wreath is actually artificial — which is great news for your decorating during plenty of holidays to come. Although it’s unlit, you can easily wrap it with a strand of battery-powered string lights for extra sparkle.

Who says all holiday wreaths have to conform to the norm? Skirt the edges of tradition when you display this bold Tea Leaf and Poinsettia Artificial Square Wreath.
