DIY Tips for Hanging Beautiful Wreaths

DYI Tips for Hanging Beautiful Wreaths

Here’s a designer trick: Before you hang your faux wreath, give it some tender loving care. Faux wreaths are shipped in boxes that flatten the stems and foliage. Some retailers hang them in the store straight out of the box. Take some time to separate and “fluff” the individual stems like you would on an artificial Christmas tree. Wreaths, especially those that are wired give you the opportunity to arrange the stems to your personal style... just like designers do.

Ribbon ties together any look. Designers use ribbon to finish home accents arrangements and wreaths. Tie bows, hang streamers, weave ribbon throughout the wreath. Wreath Pro Adjustable Wreath Hanger is a tool that uses ribbon and helps you get professional results. Here is a previous blog post that shows you more ideas using ribbon to hang a wreath.

Wreath Pro Adjustable Wreath Hanger is designed to hang any wreath you want with ribbon. Here is a way to go one decorative step further…add a gorgeous bow.

First, weave the ribbon of your choice through the slots and adjust to the length you want it to hang on your door using the door hook. Let the extra ribbon hang down the sides of the wreath.

Then, using additional ribbon create a looped bow using enough ribbon so you have long streamers. Attach the bow at the top of the wreath with florists wire. Complete the look by cutting notches in the bottoms of the streamers. Create a "pleats" in the streamers by folding the ribbon and then letting it loose.

I have an Undersized Door - WIll Wreath Pro Work for me?



Although most doors are a standard thickness, once in a while we are contacted about non standard sized doors.

Here are a couple of pointers.

1. If your door is oversized or thicker than 1 3/4" - 1 7/8"
Measure the thickness of your door and contact us with the information at: cs@wreathpro.com.
We may be able to make you a custom sized Wreath Pro for your thicker door.

2. If your door is thinner than 1 3/4"
Wreath Pro "may" work on a slightly thinner than standard 1 3/4 inch door but it may effect the amount of weight it can hold.
Wreath Pro is designed so that the weight of the wreath is pulling straight down on the top of your door. In order to do this the door hanger needs to be:
"snug" on your door front to back and flat on the top of the door.

If your door is just slightly undersized 1/8 inch or less you can bend the inside "tab" of your Wreath Pro to take up some of the slack.
An alternative ti to use a "spacer" between the inside tab and your door to take up the slack, see photo.

undersized-door-web

3. Custom sizes.
We do try to when possible accommodate customers with non standard doors. If you have a non standard door and would like a Custom Wreath Pro.
Please, carefully measure the thickness of your door and contact us at cs@wreathpro.com.

How To Personalize Your Wreath

Wreaths are easily the most versatile natural decoration imaginable, for, not only can they fit in with a wide range of inside and outside decor, they look amazing all year long. No matter the occasion, your surroundings can be greatly enhanced with a gorgeous wreath.

As fall approaches, the leaves are cascading to the frosted grass and you are starting to experience cravings for apple cider and pumpkin pie. Traditionally known as the harvest season, autumn is the perfect time for showing off all the products of a successful summer. Featuring hues that emulate the colorful leaves outside, such wreaths provide the perfect backdrop for any autumn gathering.

Here are three ideas for adding a personal touch to your fall wreath:

r2-300x293
Decorating with letters is very trendy right now. Personalize your wreath with the first letter of your family name to welcome guests.
Letters can be attached with floral wire or even zip ties.

fallpicks-300x298
Attach colorful fall stems and seasonal picks to refresh an older wreath. On wreaths with a vine base, you can usually "tuck" a pick right into the base between the vine segments. Wreaths with hand wrapped or plastic frames may require you to use some floral wire or tape, zip ties or even hot glue to add your picks.

goldribbonwreath-294x300
Weave seasonal ribbon throughout a wreath to beautifully coordinate with your decor. The Wreath Pro wreath hanger makes this very easy to do. See this Wreath Pro how to video for an explanation.

No matter the occasion, your fall surroundings can be greatly enhanced with a gorgeous wreath. You'll be amazed at how such a simple decoration can add warmth to your home.

Four Ways To Hang Your Wreath With Ribbon

Beautiful wreaths look even more beautiful when a coordinating ribbon is accenting them. Ribbon not only adds designer style to your decor, it allows you to adjust the height of your wreath just how you want it.

To give you just a few examples of the versatility of the Wreath Pro, here are four different ways you can try to hang your next wreath using Wreath Pro, adjustable wreath hanger.

WP-straightribbon

In the above example, the ribbon goes around the wreath then through the top slot of the door hook from the front.
The ribbon is fed back through the 2nd slot of the door hook and the "Ribbon Tail" drapes down over the wreath.

wpribbon

Here is an example with a bow at the top. To achieve this, feed the ribbon through the wreath, then feed it through the 2nd slot in the door hook from the front. Feed the ribbon back through the top slot of the door hook and tie a bow.

WPbow&tail

In this example we added a "tail" to the wreath

wreathproarrow2

In the example above, the ribbon is fed through the wreath, then the top slot in the door hook and then back and forth through slots 2 and 3. The ribbon "tails" then continue back through the center of the wreath.

Hanging a Wall Pocket On Your Door

Hanging a Wall Pocket on your door.


Wreath Pro hanging Wall Pocket


Wall pockets come in a variety of shapes, sizes, weights and designs.

Just as traditional wreaths, they are a great way to welcome family and friends to your home. The big question is how do you properly hang them level and at the height you want? Metal door hooks, suction cups, magnetic hangers and plastic hooks restrict where the pocket will hang and they might not be strong enough to hold your wall pocket securely. The last thing you want is for your wall pocket to bounce around every time you open and close the door, or worse than that, fall off the wreath hook!

We suggest using WreathPro, adjustable wreath hanger to hang your wall pocket properly and securely.  A decorative ribbon that you can change for any season, (spring, summer, fall and holiday) teamed with a strong, weight bearing invisible over the door hook will give you beautiful results each and every time.

Tip:  Tie a bow around the top of the door hanger for an extra designer's touch.


Wreath-Pro-Door-Hook-With-Bow

Weave the ribbon though the wall pocket loop. Then see what length you want it to hang. Then, weave the ribbon through the slots on the door hanger. Hang on the door. It's that easy…secure and stylish
