Wreaths are a Christmas classic, and they add festive cheer wherever you hang them in your home. This year, experiment with hanging Christmas wreaths throughout your home, rather than just on your front door!

1. Hang a Christmas Wreath Above Your Bed

Sugarplums will dance in your head if you hang a wreath over your bed or headboard. It’s also a fun way to spread some holiday cheer into the more personal spaces around your home.

In her Style Challenge post about decorating the dining room for Christmas, guest blogger Kristin of The Hunted Interior tied a wreath to her chandelier with beautiful turquoise ribbons, creating a glamorous focal point in this entertaining space.

3. Incorporate a Christmas Wreath Into a Gallery Wall

Gallery walls are a popular way of adding a bit of drama to a room, and what better way to give this focal point a dose of festive cheer than by working a Christmas wreath into your collection of treasured artwork?

4. Hang a Christmas Wreath in a Window (on the inside!)

It’s customary to hang wreaths in windows facing the bustling street, but why not hang a wreath in the window inside your home? In her Holiday Style Challenge article about creating a beautiful Christmas table, guest blogger Erin of House of Earnest hung a berry wreath in each of the windows in her dining room, creating a beautiful silhouette!

6. Hang a Christmas Wreath Over a Mirror

Two of the guest contributors in our Holiday Style Challenge series hung their Christmas wreaths over mirrors! By layering either an ornamental wreath (like Bryn!) or a traditional green wreath (like Kate!) over a large mirror, you can double the drama!

Don’t stop at the front door. Why not hang a wreath on your garage door as well? We love this idea from Pamela of PB&J Stories, who contributed an article showing us her Christmas décor ideas for the front door.
