Some may think that a wreath is only a suitable decoration at one time of the year — during the holiday season — but we would have to tell those individuals that they are wrong. If decorated correctly, there can be different types of wreaths that are suitable for different types of seasons. In fact, if you decorate a wreath in the farmhouse style, you will find that they make a great addition to a home’s door at any point of the year. Here are 15 of our favorite farmhouse wreath ideas.
Flowers and Moss
Moss is an underrated plant, if you ask us — while it may not have the beautiful vibrant color of traditional flowers, it still delights with a beautiful green hue and a unique texture. Moss looks great when incorporated into a wreath, as seen here at Pretty Real Blog. You can either use real moss or imitation moss that can be found at a craft store. This wreath is an unexpected but nonetheless perfect option for springtime.
Boxwood plants are beautiful and lush, but using authentic boxwood can come at a cost. Some boxwood may come with a plant disease that is known as “boxwood blight”, and can easily spread between plants in the garden. If you want to keep your plants safe, it’s best to use a fake boxwood —luckily this is something that can be easily procured from your local arts and crafts store, as seen here at the Whole Cook.
Stripes and Flowers
If you are a fan of geometric patterns and flowers, why choose between one or the other? You can combine them together to make a fabulous wreath, as seen here at Girl Loves Glam. This kind of wreath arrangement is sure to make your door stand out in the best of ways. If the bright black and pink colors of this particular arrangement isn’t your style, feel free to create your own color palette using your favorite color combinations!
Let It Snow Christmas Wreath
Even though we are focusing on non-festive wreath ideas in this article, we thought it would still be worthwhile to include a holiday wreath or two! Take for example this “Let it Snow” wreath from The Happy Housie that comes complete with its own miniature winter wonderland scene. You’ll never go back to purchasing an ordinary store bought holiday wreath again!
Twiggy Farmhouse Wreath
Sometimes less is more, and this is certainly an adage that applies to wreaths as seen here in this twiggy farmhouse wreath from At Home With the Barkers. It’s amazing what can be done with just a little bit of twigs and a little bit of greenery. For best results, we suggest that you use real twigs that you gather from your yard area. Not only will this help you do some yard work and clean up your outdoor area, but it also means that you are gathering supplies for your wreath that are free! It also saves you a trip to the local craft store.
If you’re going for a boathouse nautical theme at home, then you have got to check out this wreath option from DIY Beautify. This beautiful blue-and-white wreath gives the impression of being right next to the seashore, which makes it a beautiful addition to your door no matter how far from the oceanside you live. This is by far the best wreath for any beach house or summer home.
Spring Flowers Farmhouse Wreath
April showers bring May flowers — and why not celebrate this fact with a beautiful spring-themed wreath? This floral arrangement from Daisy Maebelle is so sweet that you will be tempted to keep it up all year long. Don’t give into the temptation, though —there are plenty of other wonderful wreath ideas to keep your door dressed up through the duration of the year! There are many different iterations that this wreath could take. If you are using real flowers, feel free to be creative with it by choosing whatever flowers are available in your yard.
Minimalist Farmhouse Wreath
As we mentioned earlier, less is more sometimes! If you find that the wreath ideas above are still too involved for you, you can be interested in this wreath idea from Making Joy and Pretty Things. Made from one simple wooden branch and faux flowers, this is minimalism at its finest. A minimal wreath is a good idea for anyone with a door that is a vibrant color or otherwise busy, as it won’t crowd the door’s appearance or make your home’s curb appeal too overwhelming.
Paper Flower Wreath
So far, all of our wreaths have been made using synthetic or real flowers and other similar materials — but these are not the only things that you can make wreaths out of! We love this idea from DIY n Crafts that shows how you can make a farmhouse wreath out of paper flowers! While it might not be ideal for outdoor arrangements, this is a great choice for anyone who has a door that opens up into an indoor hallway! This is also a wonderful craft to involve older children or adolescents in.
Burlap Bow Wreath
Burlap is a versatile and attractive material that is often used in wreath-making. You can see here at Little Yellow Wheelbarrow that combines a number of textures to create a beautiful and unique wreath that requires few financial resources. You also do not need to be a professional crafter to figure out how to put this wreath together, which is another added bonus. However, with the confidence that you will gain after creating this wreath, you will surely be hooked on crafting and will look forward to your next wreath project with much excitement!
Pinwheel Farmhouse Wreath
There are some symbols that are synonymous with farmhouse style, and the pinwheel is certainly one of them! You can incorporate an adorable pinwheel into your wreath design by buying one at a craft store or by making one yourself. This design from Lolly Jane shows an example of a wreath that is made with autumnal decorations, but you can modify this to match any season.
Magnolias are some of the most beautiful flowers that could be found in nature, and it’s not just their flower that is beautiful. The plant also comes with attractive and distinctive green leaves, which makes them a beautiful addition to any DIY wreath. The folks over at HGTV have designed their own beautiful farmhouse-inspired wreath that is made from faux magnolia leaves and a ribbon to tie it all together.
Faux Succulent Wreath
While this list has focused largely on flowers, moss, and other greenery, we have failed to pay mention to one of the most popular plant types out there — succulents! If you think that you can’t put succulents in a wreath, we are about to prove you wrong. Of course, these aren’t authentic succulents — they’re fake —but they still resemble the beautiful look of succulents that we all love! See how to make this unique wreath over at Little House of Flour.
Rainbow Rug Wreath
Here is another option that is even more different! Made from the rags of old colorful rugs, this idea from Craft Create Cook is not only trendy but also eco-friendly as it is made from recycled materials. Of course, the wreath that you make may not come out looking exactly like the wreath in the photos, especially if you are using your own fabrics and materials. That’s just more of the beauty of it! It’s also a great way to make use of your favorite tshirts or other clothing pieces that are no longer wearable.
Here is another holiday option to round out the list! This idea from Homemade Ginger makes use of many of the favorite details from above, like minimalist branch details and greenery, with the addition of the word “JOY” in large artisanal letters. Of course, you can spell out any word you would like in your version of the wreath.
Incorporating a farmhouse wreath into your home’s outward design will make your house stand out on the street and help increase its curb appeal! The best part is that nobody will be able to guess that you may the wreath yourself, as they all look like expensive store-bought items.
