Door Hanger

Perhaps the easiest and most obvious way to hang a wreath is to use a door hanger. These come in a variety of finishes and materials to compliment both the wreath and the door. Typically available in metal, plastic, or acrylic, you can find door hangers in brass, silver, black, and green. The most common lengths are 12” and 15”, which means that your wreath should leave ample room to use the peephole.

When Door Hangers Don’t Work

Sometimes, even the thinnest door hanger will not properly fit over a door. You may find that the door will not fully close or that the door hanger damages the paint. Additionally, door hangers may not work with doors that have unique styles or architectural features, including doors that have windows inside the frame, detail work, and extra-tall doors.

Wreaths and Door Hangers

Sometimes, a door hanger won’t work due to the shape and thickness of the wreath. If the wreath is too bulky, it may not fit within the curved part of the door hanger. Wreaths that use thick floral foam are one type of wreath that can’t use a door hanger unless you attach a small loop of ribbon to the back of the wreath. Other times, the wreath will fit within the curve of the door hanger, but won’t look right due to contrasting styles. Modern wreaths tend to be sleek and minimalist, which can make the door hanger look outsized.

Self-Adhesive Hooks

There are so many types of self-adhesive hooks available that you can select the size, color, and shape that will work best for your project. In fact, these types of hooks are a great idea when you would prefer to hang your wreath somewhere other than your door. They work well on walls, mirrors, and wooden frames.


Nails offer a fairly simple and easy solution when it comes to hanging wreaths. While a small nail can be hammered into your door with minimal damage, it is a fairly permanent solution, so it’s important to make sure that you like the height at which your wreath will be displayed.
