As the Christmas season really starts to gear up, you’re probably planning to adorn your front door with a festive wreath. While you can’t go wrong with a traditional fraser fir wreath, there are dozens of wreath varieties out there. Why not pick a style that suits your home’s personality?

Take a look at our Christmas wreaths inspiration board for Christmas decorating ideas for your front door.


We love the classic look of a green wreath on the front door, but there are options, too, if you’re looking for something out of the ordinary. Our Home Accents Holiday ‘Feel Real’ 30 in. Wreath gives you the best of both worlds. This is a style you can use year after year, it’s pre-lit to light up your front door, and it has the same look and feel of a true Douglas Fir wreath. Another classic look is The Christmas Tree Company’s 30 in. Fresh Classic White Pine Holiday Wreath, which has long, polished needles for an elegant look. Or maybe a more rustic, organic wreath suits your style. The Oregon Holly 24 in. Cedar and Fir Wreath has a more shaggy, casual shape to it — the perfect way to celebrate the natural beauty of the forest.


Flocked wreaths are a beautiful way to bring a touch of playfulness to your traditional green wreath. With flocked needles adorned with pinecones, we’re smitten with the Martha Stewart Living 30 in. Pre-Lit Sparkling Pine Wreath. An nontraditional shape is a wonderful way to welcome guests for the holidays. The 24 in. Flocked Pinecone and Fern Snowflake Wreath creates the same focal point on your front door as a traditional round wreath, but it’s snowflake-shaped boughs create a fresh look in your Christmas decor. For a more dramatic look, we love the icy appeal of the Home Decorators Collection 24 in. Silver Snowfall Wreath.


Perhaps sparkly ornaments and bright colors are more your language. The 48-Light LED Red 24 in. Holly Berry Wreath combines the iconic look of the red holly berry with the best and brightest of technology, quite literally. This wreath features 48 individual LED lights to add some sparkle to your front door. If you’re looking to amp up your color palette for the holidays, look into the Martha Stewart Living Christmas Collectibles 24 in. Ornament Wreath. It welcomes visitors with reds, blues, greens and golds. Or accent your front door with metallic hues, like the Martha Stewart Living Winterberry 24 in. Gold Wreath, which creates its icy silhouette from beads and sequins.


What to do if you’re spending the holidays on the shore? It may not seem right to outfit your door with a snowy, flocked wreath if the Florida sunshine warms up your Christmas. Instead, try a coastal-themed wreath like the Wintry Cape 18 in. Dried Floral Wreath with its preserved cedar, starfish, seashells and sand dollars. Driftwood is a material that seems to be popping up all over the place, and we love this Home Decorators Collection Driftwood Wreath with a metal bow. L.L.Bean offers a fresh evergreen wreath perfect for a coastal Christmas, the Coastal Evergreen Wreath.


Wreaths don’t have to be made of fir or cedar or sparkle, so why not explore some of the more creative options, like a dried floral wreath? We liked this Tidings of Joy 16 in. Dried Floral option. Preserved boxwood is an elegant and low-maintenance greenery option — it’s leaves are preserved to maintain their color and shape, but it can be used year after year! The olive tree is a symbol of peace, the perfect message for this holiday season. The 18 in. Olive Bush Wreath would make an elegant alternative to a traditional fir.
