How to Hang a Wreath Using Ribbon

On Fleming Lane, we look forward to decorating our front door each season with a beautiful wreath, hung by a simple ribbon. We prefer ribbon relative to alternative methods, such as damaging nails or sticky adhesive.

Here are three simple steps on How to Hang a Wreath Using Ribbon this Fall.

Step 1: Gather your materials

  • Wreath
  • Ribbon (a few suggestions include grosgrain, burlap, or grosgrain!)
  • 3 thumbtacks per wreath
  • Hammer
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape
  • Ladder

Step 2: Measure your Ribbon and Wreath Placement

First, loop the ribbon through the wreath as if you are hanging it. Next, note how much ribbon you need to place the wreath exactly where you want it. We found this step is easier with two people! Afterward, cut the ribbon straight across. Finally, measure and cut ribbon for the number of wreaths you plan to hang. This step is important for all of your wreaths to hang at the same height. .

Step 3: Hang your Wreath

Loop your ribbon through your wreath and hang it over your door, or window, ensuring the edge of the ribbon lines up with the top of the door at the opposite hanging side. Start by placing the first thumbtack in the middle of the ribbon and gently push it into the door, using a hammer only if necessary. Repeat on either side of the first thumbtack.

*As a disclaimer, this method does not guarantee your wreath will not fall. Additionally, if you are hanging your wreath in a weathered area, we suggest opting for a stronger ribbon.

We love to shop small for our favorite wreaths. For example, we love to purchase seasonal decor from a local store in Colonial Williamsburg called Craft House, as well as Brick & Vine.

Williams Sonoma, Frontgate and Balsam Hill also have beautiful selections.
