The best summer wreaths
Hydrangea Summer Wreath
This softly-coloured wreath will take you all the way through from late Spring to high summer. The delicate combination of petal pinks and smoky greys pairs perfectly with the striking violet and tangerine highlights. Included in this wreath are some of our favourite summer flowers, like roses and peonies, alongside the heads of full and fabulous Hydrangea. It's these Hydrangea blooms that give this wreath its abundant character. We love that this wreath's structure comes from a rattan hoop, as this adds a naturalistic element that makes this otherwise artificial wreath, feel full of life. This wreath is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, so when you’re done using it to brighten up your entryway, you can repurpose it to liven up cabinet doors, the space above your fireplace, or even prop it on open shelving as a decorative accessory.
Shell and Sand Summer Wreath
This wreath perfectly brings to mind a dreamy summer's day on the beach. The sandy colours are brightened up with touches of sunshine yellow and adorned with gorgeous shells.
It's perfect for adding to schemes in coastal properties, when you want to reflect your surroundings, without it feeling kitsch. The best thing about this wreath is the fact that it’s super long lasting and requires little upkeep. If handled with care, it’ll last years. Keep it looking its best buy dusting it occasionally with a hair dryer on a cool setting.
Olive Leaf Summer Wreath
If you prefer your home to have a natural, understated look, you don’t want to miss this summery olive leaf wreath from décor brand Trusme, available via Amazon. We love the fact that this wreath is made out of a UV, moisture and mould resistant material, so if you choose to hang it on your front door, it’ll do a brilliant job of withstanding the extremes of British weather. We also love the fact that the back of each wreath features a durable built-in hanging loop, so it’s sure to stay in place when you open the door quickly, and guaranteed to withstand any strong winds.
Clematis Summer Wreath
Although purple clematis flowers are the star of the show in this Blossomloops wreath, its delicate mix of faux roses, hydrangeas, lavender, freesias - amongst other things - give it a sophisticated vibe.This wreath is suitable for outdoor use, but it is advised that you bring it inside during heavy rain, strong winds and snow, to keep it in top shape for years to come.
Lavender Summer Wreath
Pampas Grass Summer Wreath
If you’re looking to achieve beachy, boho style vibes in your home this summer, you can’t go wrong with a dried pampas grass. This pampas wreath from dried florals brand, KandaAndCo, is beautifully full and totally natural - all you have to do to maintain it is spray it with hairspray every few months to keep it from shedding. Featuring cream pampas, preserved flowers and dried foliage, this summer wreath is perfect for adding a sense of cosy texture to a home full of earth tones and neutral decor, but would even look at home in a coastal decor scheme. Why not display it above a fireplace or as part of a gallery wall?
Wheat and Dried Flower Summer Wreath
Introducing dried flowers into your décor scheme is the perfect way to add an understated splash of colour. We particularly love this dried flower wreath from Northumberland-based seller, TwistedWillowNorth, because it feels summery but in a cool, boho way. The addition of sculptural ears of wheat and delicate oats remind us of the long days of late summer. As dried flowers prefer to stay dry, this wreath is for indoor use only - but it makes a great, affordable alternative to a flower wall!
Gypsophila Summer Wreath
Keep things simple with this delicate faux gypsophila summer wreath. This elegant, formal style wreath will stand up to soft summer rainfall, so its great for popping on your front door. The cream and white tones also make it ideal for adding to pale summer bedroom schemes. You can even use it as part of your budget wedding decor!
Meadow Flower Summer Wreath
Lighten up your look this summer with a gentle wreath, inspired by meadow flowers. The loose and relaxed style of this wreath makes it perfect for adding to romantic schemes or cottagecore looks. This summer wreath mixes pastel coloured artificial flowers with sculptural artificial foliage to create a long-lasting design.
Sunflower and Blue Cornflower Summer Wreath
We love the fact that this wreath combines traditional, country flowers with a modern, asymmetric design – it means it looks amazing at the front of country cottages and contemporary apartments alike! The design is totally customisable, so you can even tweak the cornflower to sunflower ratio to suit your existing colour scheme. Try adding some gingham ribbon to amp up the cottagecore vibes!
