What is a wreath?
Wreaths are traditional holiday decorations that are hung on doors or walls and decorated using flowers, greeneries, and ribbons. These round arrangements of fresh or faux florals and leaves are a staple decoration in most homes.
Wreaths are simple and easy to use. These subtle decorations often symbolize gratitude and togetherness for families, especially during the holiday season. Other wreath decorations include candles, and more modern ones are decorated with LED lights and garlands as well.
How big should a wreath be?
Most traditional front door wreaths should cover two-thirds (⅔) of the width of the front door. Generally, front door sizes are 36 inches wide, so a wreath should be 24-30 inches in diameter. However, if you plan to hang them up on walls, they can be smaller or bigger in size, depending on your preference.
Some wreath designs are also meant to be used as tablescape decorations. Wreath table centerpieces are smaller in size so they don't take up a lot of space take up a lot of space on the table, especially for sit-down dinners and small gatherings.

Made of leaves in autumn colors, mini pumpkins, and dry foliage. Used to decorate the door for fall, especially for Thanksgiving celebrations.
