Wreath Care

Here are some tips to make your wreaths, garland and swags last.

Wreaths and the like can be displayed indoors and outdoors.

If displayed outdoors, it will fade over time and the amount of fade depends upon materials, porch coverage, and the time of year. I recommend hanging your wreath, garland or swag in a covered area where it’s not exposed to the elements.

Storage is especially important so that the item will maintain its fullness and so that embellishments are not compromised. Wreaths, garlands and swags will stay in-tact beautifully if they are hung and have distance on all sides so that they are not crushed by other items. Ideally, store it in a dark place or loosely cover with a dark bag where light cannot easily go through bag. Examples include a closet, attic garage. Direct light may fade materials so dark places or covering them with a dark non-transparent bag are ideal.

It is not recommended to stack items or store them in a box where it may touch the sides. Otherwise, items will crush and eventually take the shape of the box.

I hope these tips are helpful, and feel free to contact me with any questions.
