4 Unusual Wreath Ideas

Make an entrance this Christmas with fancy foliage to suit your front door, whichever colour it may be.


You’ve decked your halls, now add an eye-catching wreath to your front door that’ll make a great first impression before your guests enter your winter wonderland. We’ve rounded up our four different wreath styles – because you don’t have to stick to evergreens everywhere – and matched them with their ideal front door colours.

1. Feather your nest

For a whimsical woodland feel, try ruffling a few feathers and creating a wreath made of faux feathers and twigs like this one by Chatelaine. Embrace a dark backdrop with a front door in a deep and rich shade for maximum contrast against golds and deep greens. Talk about a dramatic entrance…

2. Winter wonderland

This fairytale-like entrance comes courtesy of House and Home). To turn an all-white porch and front door into something magical, play around with adding a few faux leaves painted in whites and pinks and it’s a happily ever after. Alternatively, use your white front door to go graphic and contemporary with a geometric wire wreath, like this metallic one from TK Maxx.

3. Bundle of fir

Though to keep a traditional Christmas approach to your wreath, but with a twist, have an evergreen bundle of foliage on your front entrance like Sainsbury's (left).

4. The bold and beautiful

A beautifully bold red paint gives your home more than a classic pop of colour all year round, and as Design Mom notes, it's especially fitting for the holiday season. For a striking contemporary and wintery balance, pair with an all-white frosted wreath. Santa will most definitely be able to spot your house this year.

Weathershield exterior colour: Volcanic Red

Wreath: All That Glitters, Marks & Spencer's, £15.
