You put it off and put it off, and now, some how, some way, Christmas is less than two weeks away—and your decorations are sorely lacking. If you're looking to add a seasonal touch to your home in a hurry, then it's time to pick up some of the most traditional, beloved decorations around: holiday wreaths. If you're having visions of the homey but less-than-chic pieces that your dear old gran used to hang, think again: This décor has come a long way. Today's wreaths come in a wide range of styles and shapes that will lend a festive touch to even the most modern of homes. Whether you're looking for a super sophisticated arrangement or one that gives you serious nostalgia, we've pulled up the sleeves of our oh-so-fabulous ugly sweaters to find you the best holiday wreaths to make your entryway, wall or mantel merry, taking into consideration their aesthetic, durability and ease of use.

Where Do Holiday Wreaths Come From

This type of ornamental decoration became a festive staple back in the 16th century as a way to repurpose the trimmings that were pruned off the tree. “These people were living in a time when everything in their lives was used until it was gone,” Stories Behind the Great Traditions of Christmas author Ace Collins told TIME in 2018. These days, they're made independently of trees from an assortment of real or artificial leaves, twigs, flowers or fruits, and are typically arranged in a circle, but can also be purchased in other shapes and designs (heart wreaths, anyone?).

How to Hang a Holiday Wreath

While a large nail is an obvious way to hang a holiday wreath, there are a few alternatives that will be less damaging to your front door or walls (you're welcome, landlords).

  • Plastic wreath hanger and metal wreath hanger: These popular and super-convenient hangers fit right over the top of your door by way of a little hook that you can easily hang your new wreath from—just be sure to test the fit to ensure it won't prevent you from properly closing your door.

  • Magnetic wreath hanger: These hangers work by placing one side of the magnet on the inside of your door while the other magnetized side, which has a hook attached, is placed on the outside. This is a great option if you want your hardware to be more discreet and stylish. It will also serve you well if you don't have a big enough gap between the door and your ceiling for a plastic or metal wreath hanger.

  • Suction cup wreath hanger: A perfect option for glass front doors, these hangers are held in place with powerful suction cups that promise not to slip or fall off. They're usually made of clear rubber, which tends to be a more weather-resistant option.

Now that you're ready to decorate your home, check out our list of the 25 best holiday wreaths for your most festive season yet.
