A wreath on your front door is a warm and subtle way of saying, “Welcome to my home.” But aside from displaying them on the door to greet your guests, there are many other places indoors where you can use your Christmas wreath as an elegant decoration for the room.

Consider hanging a wreath inside the guest bathroom or the living to extend the warm, festive feel. Decorate it with red, gold, and green ornaments like poinsettias, holly berries, and artificial gold feathers, or choose a wreath that matches the color scheme of the room where you intend to hang it.

Children love it when their rooms are especially decorated for the holidays. Turn the wreath-decorating into a crafts project with the kids by getting a bare wreath and allowing them to personalize it with their names and decorate it with a theme like sports, pets, or good old Christmas. Hang the wreath above their beds or on their doors.

Fresh wreaths are also a great way to add a Yuletide scent in any room. You can make your own by getting eucalyptus leaves, fresh evergreens, pine cones, or berries and attaching them to a wreath frame. If you don’t have time to create a homemade wreath, you can order a fresh one from your florist. Alternately, you can also place a drop or two of cinnamon and apple-scented essential oils on an artificial wreath.

Christmas wreaths provide an instant decorative touch that can be placed in any room and on unexpected places. They’re so easy to customize according to your home’s color scheme and if stored properly, artificial wreaths can last you for many Christmases to come.
