How To Measure & Understand Wreath Sizing

Wreath DepthOnce you determine the size wreath you need, you should understand exactly what the measurements mean and how they apply to your needs. For example, if you need a 24” wreath, you may want to shop for 22” inch wreaths. It all depends on a few factors and how wreaths are properly measured. We’ll cover everything you need to know in the 2 helpful tips below.

Diameter

The main number you’ll see on wreaths is the diameter. Most wreaths are available in sizes from 10 inches to 72 inches. The size you should look for depends on your setting and how much space you want on either side of the wreath. As stated above, you may want to leave an extra inch or two for sprays and florals that extend beyond the edge. If you’re looking at one of our 24” wreaths, this means it is 24” inches from one end to the other, if measured diagonally.

Wreath Depth

Once you know the diameter, you’ll want to understand the depth of your wreath. This is especially important if you’re displaying the wreath between the inside door and a glass door. Having a wreath with the right depth will prevent a cramped or smashed look. Measure the very front of the wreath to the back, including the base. To be sure, measure the distance between doors to determine how much space you have to work with.
