Best Christmas wreaths to dress your home

A hearty Christmas wreath can instantly transform any front door

Whether it’s taking pride of place hanging on your front door, above a fireplace or staircase, Christmas wreaths are often the first decoration to go up. This simple decoration can make a big impression with minimal effort.

There’s no doubt a real wreath is glorious, especially if filled with fragrant foliage, but they can often be an expensive option and tricky to keep fresh throughout the entire festive period. In terms of practicality real wreaths are often heavy too, and therefore can be problematic to hang. If you simply want the effect without the effort you may be best to opt for an artificial design, a faux wreath can last for years to come also.
