Different Ways to Use Mini Wreaths and How to Hang Mini Wreaths

Have you ever seen a mini wreath and just fall in love?  Sometimes these cute little wreaths are overlooked because they are not large and extravagant.  But, they really can add a special touch to parts of your home.  The possibilities on where to hang mini wreaths are endless.  Keep reading to see some of your options!

French Doors:


French doors inside of your home are gorgeous alone.  But look at these french doors with a set of wreaths on them.  The wreaths on this door are on a 14" base, but they could have been smaller or even larger.  It really depends on your preference.  But it just adds a personal touch and still leaves a large enough space to see the beauty of french doors. The way I hung this was by using a command post hook.  Command strips have never ruined my glass and the bow covers them so you will not see them at all.  Super easy and super cheap.

Backs of Dining Chairs, Island Chairs, or Bar Chairs:


I have always loved seeing wreaths on the back of chairs during the different seasons and especially the holidays. It just makes everything so festive.  The wreath pictured above is much smaller than the french door wreath. The base of this mini wreath is 10".   Hanging wreaths on chairs unfortunately is not as easy as french doors but it can be done.  This wreath has wires tired to parts of the opening of the chair.  It looks a bit ugly on the other side, but is not very noticeable and people will be sitting so no one will ever see it.  Now... if you have chairs with full backs, that can become harder.  You can try to tape the wire and if the wreath is not heavy, it should hold.  But, if your chairs are fabric, as mine are, it probably will not hold.  I am going to try pew clips on mine this season since my chairs are new and see if that will work.  



Mirrors:

This little guy is one of my favorites because of its' simplistic nature and sparkle.  I just love cedar during Christmas time.  And the best part is, due to this wreath having a more neutral look, it can be used all winter.  This wreath is only 6" but I could have gone bigger if I wanted to.  I would say no more than a 10" base.  For this wreath, I taped the extra wire from the bow behind the mirror.  You do not see the wire going over the top of the mirror to the back of the mirror because it is covered with the bow.  

Kitchen Cabinets:

Mini wreaths can really be hung on any cabinet.  But the most common cabinet is a corner cabinet.  I sadly do not have one :(, but many people do.  You can also hang a wreath, if you have cabinets above the microwave over the stove or on the hood above your stove.  For the wreath pictured above, I hung it the same way I hung the winter wreath.  I took the wire behind the bow, put it over the top of the cabinet (bow blocks it) and then taped it to the inside of the door.


Check out my video showing you different ways I hang mine!


Trust me, even though I make wreaths that are pretty, hanging is not always pretty, and many times there is some sort of ugly with hanging that may not be the best way, but if it works, is hidden, and I have a pretty wreath hanging, I am a happy girl!  I am launching for the first time, sets of mini wreaths for the fall in my Etsy shop and just listed them today.  And do not worry, if I see people like these a lot, I will be doing some for the winter as well.  Go take a look and please do not hesitate to ask me any questions!

How to Make a Floral Arrangement

Just like my wreaths, I have made many floral arrangements, but have never sold them or really paid attention to technique.   I kind of just, made them.  When I started my wreath business, I began to really pay attention to the Do's and Don'ts of design and color theory.  My wreath business just celebrated its' three year anniversary of opening this past January and now I have begun selling floral arrangements. There are so many amazing books I have read that have helped me to learn more of the "technical side" of creating floral arrangements.  My first favorite book is  Floret Farm's A Year in Flowers .  I first learned of this farm when I visited the New York Botanical Gardens last year and purchased  Floret Farm's Cut Flower Garden .  I created my first, REAL cut flower garden last year and this book was beyond helpful.  My second favorite book for creating floral arrangements is  Flower Color Theory    Both of these books cover plant types, color combi

Home After The Holidays

Once the glitz and glam of the holiday decor is put away and the tree is taken down, what do you do in your home?  I have seen a mixture of two decor options: a wintery, cozy home or year-round decor.   For me, I choose to do the wintery, cozy home decor style.  Many people associate garland and lights with Christmas but I do not.  I associate Christmas with Santa and ornaments.  Who is to say that you cannot have garland after your Christmas decor is put away.  In the link below I will show you how I styled my winter garland for my fireplace. DIY Winter Garland So many people say they miss the warmth of the lights of their tree.  But why are lights only associated with Christmas.  I have seen so many creative ways to incorporate lights into your winter decor.  Look at how I styled my floor vase this winter. This vase is from ZGallerie, one of my favorite glam decor stores.  The greenery and magnolias are from Hobby Lobby.  Then I added two white branches with battery operated lights f

Different Ways to Preserve and Store a Wreath

 I have been asked so many times, how I store all of my wreaths.  Since I make wreaths and am fortunate to have a work space in my home, I have all of my wreaths either on wreath stands or hanging on the wall using thumbtacks.  Purchasing a high quality wreath can be costly, I know, but it is all worth it, especially if you learn how to store and preserve it.  To start, I always recommend my customers to try to keep their wreath in a protected location outside, avoiding full, direct sun.  If left in the elements, the wreath will not last long as rain and strong winds can be damaging.  The sun also fades the colors in the wreath.  Sometimes, this is unavoidable, but you must be prepared to most likely purchase a new wreath each year. If you are able to keep the wreath somewhat protected outside, then you will most likely be able to use it the following year if not years.  There are many different ways you can store a wreath and also many ways you should avoid storing your wreath.  The b
