Door Decor Questions

Now that you’ve gotten some great ideas of fun things you can use for door decor, we’ve got answers to some frequently asked questions about the best way to hang things and other helpful hints. Read below for some of the answers to those questions.

How Do You Hang A Wreath On A Door Without Nails?

The best way to hang a wreath on your door without nails is to hang it from the inside. Using a long ribbon or wire, loop the wreath with enough hanging material for it to go over your door to the inside. Near the top of the inside of your door, hang a self-adhesive hook, like a Command hook, upside down. Hook the ends of your wire or ribbon to this hook. There will be some ribbon or line that goes from your wreath, over the top of your door, and hooks on the interior of your front door.

Another option is to buy a wreath hanger that slips over your front door. Be sure to get one that is adjustable so you can have the perfect hanging height for your wreath. However, these can sometimes create bulk and may stop your door from shutting properly.

What Length Garland Do I Need For My Front Door?

The average length for a front door garland is about twenty feet. You’ll need to measure the height and width of your front door. Take two times the height, add the width, and add three to five extra feet for extra drape and a bit of pooling at the sides.

How Do You Hang Garland On A Door Without Nails?

Command hooks are always a great choice for hanging things without nails. When hanging outdoors and hanging heavy garland, you might want to choose the heavier weight utility hooks and use a bit of wire to attach the garland to the hooks.

If you have a brick home, you will be better off purchasing some brick clips which connect into the mortar. These won’t damage the surface of your house and will allow you to hang your garland using a bit of wire to attach the greenery to the hooks.
