Whether you're an early Christmas decorator (FYI science says you're happier if you are!) or a last-minute deck-the-hall-er, there's no debating the importance of having a Christmas wreath in your home. Nothing says it's officially Christmas like the oh-so-familiar scent of fir or pine needles wafting through the air.
If you're going all-out this year with the Christmas decorations, a large outdoor Christmas wreath would be the cherry on top of your winter wonderland. But if you'd prefer to keep things simple, Christmas wreaths that light up can also provide the perfect festive glow indoors. There are even colorful wreaths — blue, purple, yellow, you name it! — for the rebel who wants to show off her eye for design. On a budget? No big deal! In the mood to splurge? We've totally got you covered. Crafty people can even make their own DIY Christmas wreaths.
Keep reading to find the perfect Christmas wreath for every budget and décor preference.
Classic Outdoor Christmas Wreath
So you've made the trek to the attic or basement to retrieve the tangled mass of Christmas lights, spent several terrifying hours praying the ladder underneath you doesn't tip or give out, and then asked your husband at least 15 times if the lights look straight only to get a noncommittal grunt in response. But there's still one outside decoration you shouldn't forget: the Christmas wreath for the door!
Greet Santa with this holly, jolly outdoor Christmas wreath that comes with all the classic trimmings in a stunning red-and-gold motif. The best part? The mix of evergreen boughs, holly leaves, pinecones, berries, and ornaments come together so flawlessly that it looks real — even though it’s an artificial wreath that you can store away with the rest of your Christmas décor until it’s time to redecorate next year!
Where to buy it: $64.99, Amazon.
Christmas Wreath Garlands
Christmas wreaths are great because they can stand alone and still brighten a room with holiday spirit. And now you can transfer that same fun energy into a Christmas wreath-themed garland! Decorating the tree is stressful enough; why go crazy tying bows, hanging ornaments, and stringing lights in the garland, too, when you can buy it all ready to go? This lush, 9-foot garland is decorated with interwoven berries, baubles, and flowers and illuminated by 40 small LED lights. The iron wire makes this flexible garland hangable in any room and on any surface, including the fireplace mantle, windows, doorways, poles, and any Christmas decorations you might already have.
Where to buy it: $47.99, Amazon.
Christmas Wreath With Bows
If blue isn't really your thing, go the traditional route with a few pinecones, holly berries, and a bright red ribbon. Made with real Maine balsam, this 24-inch wreath not only looks like the holidays, but it definitely smells like it, too! But don't worry about the berries rotting; they and the pinecones are artificial. That said, to maintain this wreath's beautiful, full green hue, you should mist it every day. Just make a note to water this guy when you water the Christmas tree.
Where to buy it: $29.99, Amazon.
Purple Christmas Wreath
Want something different but still love the look of conventional Christmas wreaths? This faux-fir purple wreath, complete with sparkling trinkets and baubles, exudes all the wow factor of a live wreath without the hassle of actually having to water it. Now that's a win-win!
Though it's only about 11 inches, it's big enough to make a statement as soon as as you set your sights on it. The plastic conifer twigs, flowers, and gift balls require zero maintenance, so just sit back and let this baby shine.
Where to buy it: $14.99, Amazon.
Christmas Wreaths With Lights
For added oomph to your seasonal decor, go for Christmas wreaths that light up. This 24-inch wreath comes with all the standard accessories: pinecones, holly berries, and even a light dusting of fake snow on the pine needles. That said we wouldn't blame you for thinking this wreath is made of real fir! To enjoy, simply plug this baby in and appreciate the beautiful sight.
If you want a bigger version, you can splurge on a 30-inch, 36-inch, or 48-inch version. It also comes as a battery-operated wreath or a plug-in wreath.
Where to buy it: $44, Amazon.
Christmas Wreath With Deco Mesh
Looking for a creative way to get rid of all your leftover mesh and ribbons? Try a DIY Christmas wreath! (And if you don't have the time or talent to do it yourself, you can still score this adorable mesh Christmas wreath, complete with a smiling snowman!)
This deco mesh wreath is made of non-toxic materials so don't worry, pet owners! We all know the struggles of trying to keep the cats and dogs away from the Christmas tree ornaments, but with wreath, you won't have to worry.
