DIY | How To Hang a Wreath On A Door


Ok...So, I am sure this trick isn't original but I am proud to say that I did come up with it on my own after a LONG and frustrating battle over figuring out how to hang a wreath without destroying the front door!

I am really BIG into wreaths; I love to change them out for every season. 
With my first home ... oh so long ago, I remember having just painted my front door, and then going out to buy a shiny silver door hook and the perfect wreath to Christen my FIRST front door. 
The next thing I remember is without notice, the wind started blowing and I heard the nail biting scrape of the metal across my newly painted front door ... aughhhhh!
 I also remember being so annoyed that every time I would shut the front door it would catch because    of that extra quarter inch piece of metal on the top of the door! It about drove me bonkers!!!

So, as you can image I am NOT a fan of metal or even plastic wreath hangers.
I am also NOT a fan of having to destroy my front door by hammering a nail right in the dead center so I can hang a wreath on it!!  For me, that isn't a great solution either...

If you feel the same way about those darn door hooks as I do...
I have got an AMAZING solution for you!

{All you need is}

 #1 Ribbon   
(I personally love thicker ribbon)

#2 Roofing Nails 

ROOFING NAILS???
(Yep...use roofing nails because they are a very short nail so you can easily remove them, and they also have the largest head of any nail that I have found thus far)
#3 A Hammer

#4 Wreath of your choice


After you gather all your supplies, cut the ribbon to the length you want the wreath to hang on the door. Then use 1 to 2 nails to secure the ribbon on the top of the door. I don't like to hammer the nail all the way down; it makes it easier to remove the nail whenever you want to switch your wreath out.


 Problem Solved! :)

P.S. Love the polka dots - and your black door! I am dying to paint our door black, but I'm in AZ and black doesn't go with the exterior of our house. Sad!

You could also use a stapler, easier on the door and yourself (a stapler made to drive staples into upholstery and wood you buy at a hardware store). Use a staple remover, or a flat head screwdriver to pry up. This has been bugging me too, my door hanger kept my door from closing and scraped it too...thanks for the idea:) Sally-love the white berry wreath against the black door with that ribbon, beautiful!

This is great! I bet depending on the weight of your wreath you could staple gun it to the door too, if its wood of course. Thanks for the great idea!
