How To Pick The Best Greenery For Christmas Decorations

Wreaths, garlands, and other greenery are popular Christmas decorations. They add holiday cheer and finish off entryways, living rooms, and other rooms. If you want something that will last for years, artificial greenery is a great option. They're also a good option if you have allergies or pets who might eat the foliage.

This guide will walk you through the process of selecting the Best Greeney For Christmas Decorations for your home, from sizing to care and storage.

SIZE

When it comes to faux greenery, size is just as important as style. Here are some measuring guides to help you figure out what size you need. Please keep in mind that these measurements include fluffing and shaping.

HOW DO I DECIDE ON A WREATH SIZE?

Wreaths are typically displayed on doors, but they can also be hung on walls or placed on a mantel. The diameter of artificial wreaths ranges from 18 to 60 inches.

FROM 18 TO 26 INCHES
Best wreaths for front doors with widths ranging from 30 to 36 inches (standard size). For double doors, hang two of these wreaths. This size range is also suitable for smaller mantels under 5 feet wide.

FROM 28 TO 34 INCHES
Suitable for a larger entryway or a slightly larger wreath for a standard door. Ideal for mantels up to 6 feet in length.

FROM 36 TO 42 INCHES 
Ideal for oversized doors. A 36-inch wreath is the same width as a standard-size door. This is also an excellent choice for larger mantels up to 6 feet long.

FROM 48 TO 60 INCHES
Ideal for larger spaces, such as high-ceilinged walls or above large fireplace mantels.

HOW LONG SHOULD MY GARLAND BE?

Garlands are versatile and can be hung on doors, banisters, or mantels. Balsam Hill garlands range in length from 6 to 10 feet, and most can be linked together to create a longer garland if desired.

5 TO 7 FT.
Ideal for standard doors or mantels. Make a longer garland by connecting several.
8 TO 10 FT.
Fits wider archways and double doors. If you want the garlands to gather at the bottom, use this.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF GREENERY

It's a good idea to clean your artificial foliage before storing it. Here's how it's done:

Step 1: Blow dust away from the tips with a hair dryer set to cool. Alternatively, use a non-shedding microfiber or feather duster to gently remove dust from surfaces.

Step 2: Using a light touch, wipe the larger decorations, such as leaves and ornaments, with a microfiber cloth to remove any dirt build-up.

Step 3: Compress by flattening the tips to fit them into your storage container.

Step 4: Use plastic wrap to protect your greenery. Include a couple of desiccant pouches to keep it dry and moisture-free.
