I have dark olive green house with a black front door.  I want to go a little different this year for the wreath.  I got wired Harlequin ribbon (black and white) for the bow.  I get a wreath at Costco and spray about 1/2 can of flocking on it because the green does not show up on black door.  I was at Michaels today looking for some picks to accent the black or even something I could paint.  Could not find anything.  I did find some ornaments on line but this door opens and I don't want breakable things falling off.  I will also use red and white on it.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

Good suggestion.  I have some red birds (actually a lot of red birds) but they are not cardinals so no black on them.  Everything I saw today at Michaels (birds) had glitter all over them.  I am not a glitter fan.

Is gold your thing?  It would probably show up nicely on a black door.  

 

I do know of what you speak.  I have a dark red front door and hang my wreath on the brick next to the door.

Normally I do not wander into this area but I have to ask have you looked at the non-breakable ornaments?  So many stores carry them in such great color combinations, maybe that could be an option for you.

I have a dark red front door too and wreaths or door decor doesn't show well.

I moving toward all red and white (I am almost there).  I have found a can of spray flocking on the green wreath really helps it show up.
