Door wreaths
27

Recycledblonde · 03/12/2021 20:32

Anyone have any suggestions of a way to attach a wreath to a composite front door? We rent so it can’t be permanent.

We just use one of those over the door hanger things - hasn't marked the door in the last 4 years of using ours over our composite door so hopefully OK for you.

Yep either an over the door hanger or what works for some doors is using a ribbon and attaching it at the very top of the door (i.e literally the top of the door, not on the front) with some thumb tacks. This only works with doors that aren't completely solid hardwood (otherwise it's just impossible to get the thumbtacks to drive through).

We wire ours to the door knocker. It does mean that’s out of action for a month but people can just knock with their knuckles.

Or buy two wreaths, attach them to each other with some ribbon and hang one outside and one inside the door.

Command hooks - they are like magic. They stick on like a good'un and stay till you remove them; then they just peel off. Get from the supermarket.

I put a command hook upside down on the inside of the door near the top. Use ribbon on the reef and put it over the top of the door to be held by the hook. Works well. I also have lights on it which I put over the top too so the controller is inside.
I couldn't use the over door hanger in my composite door as the hanger was too thick and I couldn't close the door properly.

Piece of string around the wreath goes over the top of the door and ties to the handle inside. Our door isn't composite but that should work as long as you've got a handle or something on the inside?

That is a fabulous idea!

I have a spy hole in my door which is brass.. I unscrew it a bit and hang it from there.

I bought these last year and was amazed it held! I had a real fresh wreath which weighed a ton. It was on the glass bit rather than wood or lookalike wood so I'm not sure how it would fair on that.

I use 2 suction hooks to hang mine.

I use a command hook. It's attached to the glass though, but has coped admirably with 2 years of fresh wreaths so far.

I did when we had a wooden door that it fit. Not I have a pvc door and the frame at the top is totally different so it doesn't work anymore.

I've been wondering this too, as we have no knocker. I used to hang it in my porch so it wasn't stolen as it was mostly glazed, but we've moved, and no porch now!

That’s a brilliant idea.

I’ve got that suction hook and obviously being a complete numpty I couldn’t get it to work. I’ve now read the instructions and got it to stick to the glass panel at the top of the door. Wreath successfully attached.🎉🎉🎉

Does the wind make the door knock with the wreath on it?
