Ways to Decorate with Wreaths in Your Living Spaces

If you thought wreaths were just for your front door, think again. From hanging on vintage window frames to incorporating into shelf decor, here are some creative and easy ways to incorporate wreaths indoors.

Hang Wreaths on Vintage Window Frames

One of our favorite ways to decorate with wreaths is using an old window frame as a backdrop for your beloved wreath. It adds that extra primitive country charm while showcasing the beauty of the wreath itself.

Don't have any vintage windows lying around? No problem. Looking at flea markets and online stores like Etsy are great places to find windows.

Hanging a wreath on a window gives off such a rustic touch that it's sure to catch everyone's eye - it truly transforms the look and feel of your room.

As the seasons change, you can simply switch out your wreath for a different one to suit your decor.

Incorporate Wreaths into Shelf Decor

The shelves in our homes often serve as mini gallery walls where we display our cherished items – photos, art pieces, memorabilia – why not add a small or medium-sized wreath?

You can hang one directly onto the wall behind the shelf or even place one standing freely among other decorations. Either way creates depth and dimension.

This Weatherly buds wreath is a cozy addition to this shelf with other country decor.

Add Seasonal Touches To The Mix

As you look at various ways to decorate with wreaths, you can mix it up with the changing of the seasons. 

During fall and Thanksgiving, you can look display a wreath with beautiful, rich, fall colors. When winter rolls around, consider switching out your regular wreath for an evergreen or a pine one adorned with red berries and twinkle lights.
