Embrace the changing of the seasons and get your seasonal decor sorted with these must-have autumn wreaths

As summer draws to an end, adding an autumn wreath to your front door is a great way to embrace the change in seasons, with all its promise of cosy jumpers, golden leaves, hot chocolate, and pumpkin patches!

And, of course, a wreath isn’t only for the front door. You can hang your favourite design on an internal door, or lay it flat and use it as a statement centerpiece on the dining table. Add in some fairy lights and you’ll soon banish any trace of the incoming winter blues and find yourself embracing the darker nights.

To help you get inspired for the season ahead, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite designs, including pared-back wreaths for an understated look, and full-on autumnal extravaganzas.

How to style your autumn wreath

No longer just for Christmas, many of us have embraced hanging a wreath on the front door as a seasonal trend, with Easter wreaths, summer and autumn wreaths, plus, of course, Christmas wreaths all gaining in popularity, no doubt thanks to Instagram and Pinterest inspiration.

If you're opting to display your wreath on the front door, then Pablo Diaz Barriga VP of luxury artificial tree and decoration brand, Balsam Hill, has the following advice for getting sizing right, "For maximum impact, you want to make sure you’ve got the right-sized wreath. To do this, measure both the height and width of the space where the wreath will be displayed. For a standard UK (30 inch / 762mm) door, allot about six inches or around 15cm of space on either side of the wreath. If you’re looking to go all-out with a larger wreath, I’d recommend leaving at least two inches or 5cm of space on each side".

And, of course, the front door isn't the only place to display a wreath. Hang a wreath on an internal door, on a focal point wall, or use it as a centerpiece in the middle of the dining room table – maybe to frame a candle arrangement, as long as you take care to consider flammability! – to create a seasonal tablescape.

For even more impact, you can also hang a wreath from the ceiling above a dining table to create a bolder statement, or from a high ceiling like an entranceway or staircase. It's a great way to create to add some extra drama, especially if you're decorating for entertaining or a special occasion.

Should you choose a natural or artificial wreath?

Opting for a wreath crafted from natural components – whether fresh or dried – or making your own from foraged finds, is by far the most environmentally friendly approach. Spending time in nature scouting for suitable leaves, pine cones, and berries is also a great way to connect with nature and a fun family activity to embrace the transition of the seasons. Our guide to how to make a wreath will explain the basics of making your own.

If you're using a natural wreath indoors then pre-dried components will last much longer without wilting. Outdoors in cooler temperatures, and in a sheltered spot like a front porch, a natural wreath should last for a month or more. 

If your front door is more exposed, or you want the convenience of a wreath that is more temperature and weather-resistant, then an artificial option with faux foliage made from plastic may be the choice for you. An artificial wreath can also be used year after year, although when it does come time to dispose of it it won't biodegrade like a natural option would.

How to hang a wreath on the front door

If you're looking to cheer up your front door, then don't forget the all-important hanging solution. If you don't want to put a nail in your front door to hang decor from, or you have a UPC front door, then Amazon has a huge range of wreath door hangers that can be used without damaging your paintwork or the door's integrity.
