Bring warm autumn hues and textures into your home by using fall wreaths and garlands as part of your décor. From the front door to the living room hearth, there are plenty of places where you can showcase these design elements.
Considerations for Fall Wreaths
When deciding on a fall wreath, take size into consideration. Fall wreaths that are 25 to 36 inches in diameter are considered large, while smaller autumn wreaths are typically below 24 inches in diameter. Be sure to measure the indoor and/or outdoor area where you plan on displaying your fall wreath to ensure it will fit comfortably in your space.
While the front door is the most common place to display fall wreaths, there are other areas of your home where you can hang autumn wreaths. Try placing large autumn wreaths above your fireplace or mantel to create a striking accent alongside other indoor fall decorations
Experiment with placing small autumn wreaths in front of or within a bookshelf. This creates a surprising, yet eye-catching look that will impress your family and friends. Keep in mind that you don’t always have to place fall wreaths vertically. Add a burst of fall foliage to your dining room when using autumn wreaths horizontally as a centerpiece on your table. Place a lantern or candles in the middle of the wreath to complement your décor.
Considerations for Fall Garland

can be incorporated throughout your home décor, just as you do with fall wreaths.
Add a vibrant pop of autumn colors to your entryway by wrapping fall garland around your stairway railing, or rest a colorful garland strand on top of your fireplace mantel. Try using garland as a runner on your dining room table to give your Thanksgiving dinner an elegant touch.
Garlands are also perfect complements to fall outdoor wreaths. Draping garland around your front door with a wreath in the middle creates a warm and festive welcome for visitors.
Garlands come in varying lengths, so be sure to measure the area where you’ll be displaying them. Many garlands offer hooks and/or loops that will allow you to seamlessly weave strands together to create longer pieces.
There are many creative ways you can use outdoor fall wreaths or garlands to complement your décor this season.
