Why buy a Halloween wreath?
When the season is nigh for frightful Halloween delights, add a themed wreath to your home. You can take your front door decor to the next level with witches, pumpkins, crows, ghosts, skulls, and other Halloween characters. Your neighbors, kids, and visiting trick-or-treaters will love it!
What should you consider in a Halloween wreath?
- Size: As with many home wall decorations, wreaths can be small, medium, or large in size. A 16- to 20-inch outer diameter is the most common size for artificial wreaths. There are wreaths outside that size range if you want something larger or smaller, too. You may find it helpful to decide ahead of time where you’ll want to hang the wreath and measure the available space. This can help you figure out approximately what will fit there, which will help you narrow your search.
- Design: What’s your favorite Halloween character or theme? Do you want to frighten your neighbors or celebrate the season with something cute and fun? Halloween-themed wreaths usually come in orange, purple, black, white, or a mix of those colors.
- Material: You’ll want to make sure your wreath has a backing made of some sort of metal to ensure that the frame is sturdy and strong enough to support the wreath and its adornments. Many wreaths are made of polyethylene (PE) or PVC, as these are the most realistic-looking and durable materials. As far as leaves and flowers are concerned, silk is generally considered a good choice of material as it is a deceptively strong fabric that adds a lovely subtle shimmer to the wreath.
What’s the best way to hang a wreath?
An over-the-door wreath hanger is the best way to hang your Halloween wreath on a door without damaging it. Alternatively, you can opt for a hook with a 3M extra-strength adhesive hanger in lieu of drilling holes into the door (or the wall).
