20 Best Fall Wreaths for Under $100
A round up of 20 favorite designer look live, dried, and artificial fall wreaths for front doors under $100.
I’m breaking a cardinal rule. Like the “no white after labor day” rule. Except this one is more like the “no fall before labor day” rule. Because lately I’ve had fall on the brain!
With back to school picks on the porch and fall gatherings at home coming up soon, there’s nothing better than hanging up a pretty fall wreath for some welcoming curb appeal.
A few days ago I found myself sucked down the pretty fall wreath rabbit hole as I was planning and pinning some ways to “fallify” our house soon (totally a word).
Adding a simple fall wreath on a front door is one of my favorite ways to decorate for fall, even if I do absolutely nothing else for the season. It’s the home’s first impression, so that one little addition of a wreath on a porch makes a pretty big impact.
The thing is it’s hard to find a good quality fall wreath when pictures online can be so deceiving to how they look in real life. So I read a bunch of ratings and reviews in the search.
I thought I’d share some of my favorite fall wreaths because there are so many gorgeous ones this year!
As much as I like the high-end designer ones, I’m not about to fork over $150 on a fall door wreath, so here are 20 wreaths that are artificial, live, or dried that still look designery without the big price tag.

What to Consider When Choosing Fall Wreaths for Front Doors
Picking the right wreath all depends on your front door’s size, style, and weather conditions.
Consider Front Door Color
If your door is painted dark, you don’t want to hang a dark fall wreath on it that won’t be visible from a few yards away. Choose a vibrant or light colored fall foliage harvest wreath as a visual pop instead.
Consider Your Investment
Do you want your wreath to last many years? Or do you plan to only use it for a season or two? UV protected artificial wreaths tend to last much longer than dried or live wreaths, but they will likely cost more, particularly a more high-end well made one.
Dried wreaths can sometimes last a year or two. Live wreaths usually need to be throw out when the season is over.
Although dried or live wreaths won’t last as long as artificial, they are usually much more eco-friendly with bio-degradability so you can feel better knowing you are not contributing plastic waste into the environment.
Think About Your Front Door Weather Conditions
Does your front door get a lot of direct sunlight? If so, it’s best to go with UV protected leaves. If your front door uncovered and receives water exposure in rain, a dried wreath won’t last long.
Think About Door Size
If you have a large, statement-making front door, you want a large wreath to match. Hanging a tiny wreath on a big door can look unbalanced. The standard size for most front doors is 36 inches wide, making a 24″-26″ wide wreath the right size. Hang it about 14″ from the top of the door.
How to Personalize a Fall Wreath
Add your own personalization to a plain store-bought fall wreath like attaching pheasant feathers, pine cones, mini white pumpkins, or corn husks between stems with floral wire (I added feathers to this plain wreath below and mixed in a few sprigs of purple fall leaves to lean more into the season).
Create a pop of color by tying a vibrant ribbon on it. Or embellish it with a unique wreath hanger.
These are some of my favorite wreath hangers:
Fall Wreath Tips
When displaying a live wreath, apply Wilt Pruf plant spray occasionally to prolong its freshness.
If you don’t want to deal with a wreath hanger on your door, hang it from an outdoor rated Command hook instead.
I definitely don’t plan on decorating our front porch for fall this week or anything, but all of the pretty wreaths make me eager for it when September rolls around.
