From doors to windows and everywhere in between, wreaths are a great festive addition to any surface in the house. This quick guide will show you my top wreath display ideas and tips whether you’re at home or at a craft fair. I’m also including some tips for craft show displays to draw in buyers!
Hey, y’all! Wreaths make a statement and create ambiance. Plus, they’re just wonderful to look at! We make wreaths because they bring joy to people and are fun to show off. No matter what any naysayers say, don’t let your hard work go to waste.
Just make sure you display them proudly and get maximum impact. You created this thing of beauty, right? Let people see it, y’all!
But, whether you create wreaths as a hobby or as a Craftpreneur, how to display them to their fullest advantage may not seem obvious. I’ve received several comments and questions from readers about how to display wreaths at craft shows – and at home – so I’m sharing my top tips with you today.
With so many opportunities to display wreaths in decorating (or at craft shows), we are going to focus on how to display wreaths in ways that really highlight them. I’m separating my tips into displaying wreaths at home as well as tips for tips for craft show displays!
Wreath Display Ideas For The Home
The possibilities for decorating with wreaths indoors are nearly endless! With a little creativity, you can tastefully display wreaths almost anywhere in (or outside) your home. Here are 13 different ideas for displaying your handmade wreaths.
1. Front door
This is probably the most obvious place for many people. The front door is the first thing that people see as they walk into your home. You can (and should) definitely add a unique handmade wreath here.
This lovely handmade touch will add just the right amount of pizzaz to greet guests. Make sure you pick the right wreath size for your door.
2. Above The Mantle Wreath Display
Above the mantel is another classic space to hang a wreath. Don’t hesitate to go big and bold with a fireplace wreath, or to arrange several smaller wreaths together in an eye-catching configuration here. A wreath display like this is sure to be a great conversation starter!
3. On a Blank Wall
What if there is no mantel? Not a problem! Use a blank wall and hang a large wall wreath or create an attractive arrangement by grouping several smaller wreaths together. No need to put holes in your wall to make a terrific wreath display, y’all!
Command hooks work wonders.
4. In Front Of A Mirror
Most homes have a mirror above the fireplace or hanging on a wall. And, more often than not, homeowners don’t know what to do to jazz them up so they just sit there.
Fill the empty reflective space with a beautiful wreath that catches the eye. All of a sudden, you’ll notice a great new level of depth that wasn’t there before!
5. Mini Wreaths On The Backs Of Dining Table Chairs
I love this wreath display idea! Use some festive or colorful ribbon that complements your wreaths to tie them over the back of your dining chairs. This is especially fun to do around holidays when you are hosting get-togethers.
6. In A Window (Or Several Side-By-Side Windows)
Most people don’t even think about putting a wreath in a window, but it can be a very attractive way to display a wreath (or several wreaths if you have multiple windows next to each other).
Play around with different sizes and styles until you find what you like. Personally, I prefer them to be on the smaller side so that the wreaths don’t take over the window space.
7. On A Mounted Animal Head
This wreath display idea showcases your mounted animal head in a whole new way. Personally, I like faux animals more than real ones, and I like to dress up the space where they are hanging to change up the look.
8. In A Chandelier
Take your wreath and turn it horizontal. Then, add it to your chandelier. Finish it off with some ribbon or hanging ornaments to complete the look. What a fun wreath display idea!
9. Table Centerpiece
A classic, elegant look! Use a wreath as a centerpiece on your table and add candles or other decorations inside of it to fill the empty space.
10. Around A Wall Clock
Hang your wreath around the clock to create a festive and beautiful focal point that keeps the functionality of the clock intact while adding a lovely and simple decorative touch.
11. Accent The Stairway Wreath Display
The stairway is the perfect place to add a handmade element. Use small wreaths that will fit on the railing (or just beneath) in quantities of 3 or 5.
Note: Why not even number? Odd numbers of similar items are more visually appealing.
12. Above Bedroom Headboards
Instead of a painting or photograph, display a unique wreath above the bed for a gorgeous focal point. This is an easy way to jazz up your room for the season or decorate for the holidays. And, when you use wreath displays, it’s easy to change out your decor frequently for a new look!
13. Dining Hutch
Place a wreath or two over your dining hutch doors or on the sides of your hutch. Find the perfect ribbons and complement the space. You’d be surprised at how much a ribbon can convey!
Wreath Display Tips When Selling At A Craft Show
Now for the Craftpreneurs…
I stressed for 2 years over craft show wreath displays! I bought tons of products and studied how other people were doing theirs. Not only did I waste tons of time, but I also wasted money and energy only to realize that a good display is important, but it’s not the MOST important thing, y’all!
Craft show displays don’t need to look like a storefront. After all, this is a gathering of handmade wreaths, not a professional shop. Your clientele is interested in beautiful, high-quality, unique items that they can’t find anywhere else.
Your displays need to showcase the greatest amount of product that you can possibly fit into the area of your booth.
That’s it! Keep it simple.
Make sure enough of your best-sellers are visible and right in front of the window shoppers’ eyes so they’re drawn into your booth to buy more items!
Top Tips For Wreath Display Stands
Here are a few tips I’ve learned from experience to help you maximize your craft show displays!
- Use tables & chairs. Cover the tables with quality table cloths that drape down, and use the underneath area for storage.
- Display your items using multi-levels. Take advantage of different heights for even more space.
- Your booth should be full…but not so full that your eye doesn’t know where to look.
- Bring enough items to restock as needed. That doesn’t mean everyone needs to see your full stash, though. Store them out of sight (underneath the tables) until you need them.
- Have towers or displays and use both sides of the tent to hang items. Using a grid wall with S hooks to hang wreaths is a simple but effective method.
If you’re new to displaying wreaths, you likely have a few questions. Here are a few that I frequently see readers ask. If you don’t see your question below, please leave it in the comments so we can answer it for you!
How do you display wreaths?
I highly recommend using items to hang your wreaths on. Things like a trellis or a homemade wreath display rack made with PVC pipe works really well to give you maximum display space while still being easy to transport.
Depending on my craft show space, I will also use multiple levels on a table (using risers) – and hang wreaths off the front of the table. I love utilizing tables because I can hide additional inventory under them!
How do you show at a craft fair?
I strategically plan my craft show appearances usually around or before the holidays. That way, I can focus on building up just one type of inventory (holiday items) instead of trying to cover too much ground or working to please everyone.
Plus, people LOVE to shop for holiday wreaths and buy new ones year after year, so it’s a great way to get repeat customers and build your customer base for selling throughout the year!
