What is the difference between a wreath and a garland?
Both wreaths and garlands are decorative arrangements that are hung on the door. Wreaths are the more traditional decorations that are usually made of leaves, flowers, and berries. While wreaths are usually round, garlands can be almost any shape and size, and they often include other decorations such as tissue paper. The only real difference between a wreath and a garland is that garlands are typically much less expensive than wreaths. They’re also easier to find and are offered in a much wider variety of designs. If you’re on a budget and can’t find a wreath that you love, a garland might be a great option for you!
Types of Wreaths and Garlands
- Balsam Wreaths: Balsam wreaths are the traditional Christmas wreath made from the evergreen herb, balsam. Balsam wreaths are available in many different styles. The most traditional balsam wreaths come in a “round” shape, but you can also find them in the square, rectangle, and “pillow” styles. Balsam wreaths are great for any kind of Christmas decorating. They can be used to decorate your front door, mantel, wall, stairwell, or even a large indoor tree!
- Christmas Garland: A Christmas garland is a long strand of Christmas-themed decorations that are often hung on the front door. 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.
- 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.
- Pine Wreath: A pine wreath is a special type of Christmas wreath made from pine sprigs. Pine wreaths are very popular for the outdoors and can be used to create a festive outdoor Christmas decor.

When to use a wreath or a garland
A wreath can be used on the front door or inside on a mantel. The choice depends on the size of the wreath. A garland, on the other hand, is typically only used indoors. When choosing a wreath or garland, keep in mind how big the decoration will be once it is on the door. It should not be so big that it blocks your view of the door or other things in the immediate area. You also want to consider the design of the wreath. You don’t want it to clash with the rest of your decor. If you want to create a warm, inviting look, try a wreath or garland made from evergreen boughs, pinecones, or other festive fall leaves. If you want to create an elegant or formal look, try a wreath or garland made from flowers. And if you want to create an artsy or modern look, try a wreath or garland made from fun, bright colors and 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 decor inside your home. For example, a wreath or garland made of red, white, and green is perfect for Christmas 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. For a wreath, you can use fresh flowers or silk flowers. For a garland, you can use either fresh or silk flowers. If you choose to use fresh flowers, you should change them out every couple of weeks or so. When choosing which flower to use, you want to keep in mind the season and the other decorations you will be using in your home. For example, if you want to use a wreath or garland made from red roses, you might want to find a wreath or garland with a red ribbon. If you have a green wreath, you might want to find a red ribbon that has a festive green design. You could also look for a red ribbon that has a green design.
