Outdoor wreaths: helpful hints for selection and usage Part 2

March 25th, 2008 by Heather Dyer

The previous installment of this article dealt with the keys to successfully using outdoor wreaths and what questions you need to ask yourself such as lighting, colors, and season before making your purchase. This continuation will focus in on hanging your outdoor wreath, wreath storage, and accessorizing your outdoor wreath for holidays or special occasions. We will also cover discussion about credit card fraud and how to make a safer, more secure online transaction.

Now that you’ve purchased your outdoor wreaths, you’ve left to simply hang them in the desired locations. Wreath hangers are available at most craft stores and where wreaths are sold for under $15. The most common wreath hanger is an over the door holder. One part of the wreath hanger fits snugly over the top of the door while the hook part hangs down for the wreath to be hung from. Another popular display method is a wreath stand. While obviously not a good choice for a front door, it can work nicely in a corner of the porch arranged next to a wicker rocker. There are also various weighted ledge hangers that work by placing the weighted base on a ledge and fixing the wreath into place on the hanger that comes down from the base.

Wreath storage boxes are available in cardboard and in durable, air-tight plastic. Their circular-shape will help maintain your outdoor wreath’s shape while stored far better than plastic wrap and tape. Stacking wreath-storage boxes help greatly in organizing both small and large houses. They make for quick access and great space utilization. Just pull out the storage box, open them to see ‘like- new’ sets of wreaths.

Accessorizing your outdoor wreaths uniquely for different holidays is a great way to get maximum enjoyment out of your investment. Carefully wrap your outdoor wreath in a red velvet ribbon and add a sprig of holly berries and perhaps a string of white Christmas lights to bring an evergreen wreath to life for the Christmas holiday. Attach a tied cluster of variegated grass and straw stalks with a rust colored bow for autumn flair. In spring and summer, add in-season silk flowers to a simple grapevine wreath. If this method isn’t preferred, many people have several different outdoor wreaths that they rotate each season.

Finally, be kind to yourself and be spared some time, aggravation, and gasoline by facilitating the use of the internet to shop for the perfect outdoor wreath. Cyberspace offers a huge selection to shop from, but exercise some caution before entering your personal information and be sure that the site offers excellent guarantees and security policies.

The sites you will most want to shop from will offer money-back guarantees, satisfaction guarantees, excellent return and exchange policies, and free shipping. Be sure to shop on sites that use secure encryption for every credit card transaction and are scanned daily by Hacker Safe, Geo Trust or a major website security company. These services ensure that the websites they protect are 100% safe and secure and that there are no loopholes by which fraud can occur and credit card information can be stolen. It is truly shocking how many retail sites offer no such protection at all to their consumers. Be sure to look for the Hacker Safe logo.
