What is the difference between a wreath and a garland?

Both wreaths and garlands are decorative arrangements that you typically hang on your front door. Wreaths are the more traditional decorations, usually made of sustainable products of nature, like: leaves, flowers, and berries. Whilst wreaths are usually round shaped, garlands can be almost any shape and size, and they often include other decorations. The only real difference between a wreath and a garland is that garlands are typically much less expensive than wreaths. If you’re on a budget and can’t find a wreath of your liking, a garland might be a great option!

Types of Wreaths and Garlands

  • Balsam Wreaths: Balsam wreaths are the traditional Christmas wreath made from the evergreen herb. The most traditional balsam wreaths come in a “round” shape, but you can also find them in the square, rectangle, and “pillow” styles or as bushes to put on the mantel.  Balsam wreaths are great for Christmas decorating. They can be used to decorate your front door, mantel, wall or stairwell.

  • Christmas Wreath: A Christmas wreath is more traditionally shaped than a Christmas garland. It’s made of pine cones, bows, and other Christmas-themed decorations. At the core of a Christmas wreath is a specially shaped ring that allows the wreath to be hung on the front door.

  • Christmas Garland: A Christmas garland is a long strand of Christmas-themed decorations. Christmas garlands typically include bows, pine cones, berries, and other festive decorations. Christmas garlands come in an endless array of designs that range from classic and traditional to modern and trendy. They are typically hung on the front door but also do well anywhere in the house.

  • Pine Wreath: A pine wreath is a special type of Christmas wreath made from pine sprigs. Pine wreaths are very popular to use anywhere outdoors and can be used to create a festive Christmas garden decor.

When to use a wreath or a garland as Christmas decoration

A wreath can be used on the front door or anywhere inside. The choice depends on the size of the wreath. A garland, on the other hand, is usually only hung indoors. When choosing a wreath or garland, keep in mind how big the decoration will be once it is on the door or on your mantel.

You also want to consider the design and colors of the wreath. You don’t want it to clash with the rest of your Christmas decor. If you want to create a warm, inviting look, try a wreath or garland made from evergreen like boughs, pinecones, balsam or other festive fall leaves. If you want to create an elegant or formal look, try a wreath or garland made from flowers. If you want to create an artsy or modern look, try a wreath or garland made from fun, bright colors and artificial materials.

How to decorate with wreaths and garlands

The best way to use a wreath or garland is to make sure that it matches the rest of your Christmas decoration inside your home. For example, a wreath or garland made of red, white, and green is perfect for a classic Christmas look and can be used throughout the rest of the winter season. If you want to decorate with a wreath or garland that lasts longer, try using flowers or evergreens.

For a wreath or garland, you can use fresh flowers or silk artificial flowers. If you choose to use fresh flowers, you should change them out every couple of weeks or so to keep a fresh look. The colder it is outside, the longer your flowers will look fresh on your front door. When choosing which flower to use, you want to keep in mind the season and the colors of the other decorations you will be using in your home.
