Decorative Front Door Wreaths

Inviting for All Seasons

Decorative front door wreaths are perhaps the easiest way to add instant charm to your front porch.

Perfect any time of year, front door wreaths add color, welcome visitors, and make for nice conversation pieces.

After all, who doesn't notice a beautiful front door arrangement as they approach your home?

Dave and I like to celebrate the holidays with Christmas wreaths, Fourth of July patriotic wreaths, and, of course, autumn designed wreaths adorned with brilliant fall colors.

About T's Kustom Kreationz

We had the opportunity to meet a young entrepreneur, Taneka of T's Kustom Kreationz, who has started a business creating delightful artistic wreaths you see above. She makes them for just about every season and holiday, plus sports themes.

She brought some of her wreaths over to our home so that we could show them off to you. Taneka, along with her son, do beautiful work. You can tell they love what they do.

Make Decorative Front Door Wreaths

Why not make a front door wreath?

Depending on the wreath design, most are relatively easy to make and can be lots of fun. We can help get you started.

We will show you how to make two different types of front door wreaths that you can modify for any holiday or season.

Liz, author of the blog Savvy Seasons, shows us how to make this creative ribbon mesh wreath as shown above. Although this one is designed for fall, you could easily create a similar one for Christmas or any other holiday or season as well.

Not all wreaths have to be round. Here is a wreath we made for autumn from an existing picture frame.

We purchased a few items from a local craft store and assembled the frame wreath. We plan to use the same frame and create a Christmas wreath too.

Caring for Wreaths

You want to keep your decorative front door wreaths looking new and fresh so they last a long time. Here are some tips.
  • Keep wreaths away from direct sunlight as much as possible.
  • Clean your wreaths with a feather or micro fiber duster.
  • For really dusty wreaths there are products on the market that clean silk and flower wreaths.
  • In general, silk wreaths can withstand harsher conditions (heat, humidity, light) than their dried flower or eucalyptus counterparts. However, over time, sunlight will dull the colors.
  • Eucalyptus wreaths are not intended for outdoors. They are preserved with glycerin which might bleed if it becomes wet or exposed to humidity. This in turn can stain the surface.
  • Dried floral arrangements like cool, dark and dry. To prevent rapid deterioration, keep them inside.
  • Keep wreaths away from heat sources and flames.
