How to Hang a Wreath with Ribbon and a Thumbtack
I’ve never liked putting holes in my doors and I was also never a fan of those metal or plastic over the door wreath hangers either. When I learned how to hang them with ribbon, I’ve never looked back. Then I took it a step further and created by own little system involving large thumbtacks and tiny corks for storage. I feel so organized now! My door remains hole free and I can match my hanger if I want so it blends right in. We have a tutorial for the Peace Wreath below which I think works for any time of year, depending on how you tweak it. We also have a Burlap Wreath made from an embroidery hoop which I think is quite clever so check that out!
How to Hang a Wreath Supplies
- 1″ wide to 2″ wide ribbon to match your wreath and/or door. 1 1/2 yards will most any wreath.
- Thumbtacks Extra Large are really nice for this purpose
- Small .25″ corks size #000 (for storing your thumbtacks in your ribbon)
I used some wide burlap to hang one of my Christmas wreaths with. Using ribbon, the sky is the limit.
Glue your tack to your ribbon which attached onto your wreath.
When storing your wreath, push a tiny cork into the push pin.
Keeps it safe and keeps fingers from getting poked.
This is how we store our Peace Wreath.
For this Spring wreath I used a 1″ piece of white ribbon which blends right into our door.
It took about 1 1/4″ yards.
Reach up and push one pin into the ends of your ribbon to secure it above the frame. That’s it!
In case you need an extra example this is one using our burlap hanger.
Depending on your color choice of ribbon it can blend in very well.
