Keep on reading if you think you can benefit from learning these easy and time saving kitchen cabinet wreath hanging tips and tricks.

How to Hang Mini Wreaths Using Ribbons on your Kitchen Cabinet Doors?

Beginner Level:

1. Establish a hanging height

Hold your mini wreath up against the cabinet door to the height you would like the wreath to hang.

2. Mark hanging height with tape

Mark the desired hanging spot on the cabinet with tape (or make a small dot with a pencil) to use as a height reference as seen in the picture above.

3. Measure out the ribbon length

Hold your ribbon in place on the backside of the door about 2 inches from the top of the door. Then drape the rest of the ribbon over the frontside of the cabinet in line with your tape/pencil mark you made.

Pro tip: leave at least 2-4 inches of extra ribbon draping past your tape/pencil mark to be able to make a bow or knot when hanging your wreath- the longer the ribbon, the longer your bow tails can hang down.

Cut the ribbon to your desired length according to your establish hanging height.

4. Use the Ribbon as a template

Use the ribbon that you just measured out as a template. Cut all the ribbons that you will be hanging wreaths with to the same length.

5. Attach the ribbon to the backside of the door

Use duct tape to secure the ribbon to the backside of the door. Then, drape the ribbon over to the frontside of the door to begin hanging your wreath.

6. Attach the wreath

Attach the wreath to the ribbon by making a bow or knot.

7. Make any adjustments

make any adjustments as needed by moving the attached wreath up or down the cabinet door before tightly securing the knot or bow.

Advantage: Saves money and time by using less ribbon and easier steps

Disadvantage: Will need to be sure to cut ribbon length long enough to attach wreath with a bow or knot.

Intermediate Level:

1. Use a command hook

Place a command hook on the back of the cabinet door upside down.

2. Drape the ribbon over the door

Hang your ribbon of choice (without the wreath) around the command hook and drape the ribbon tails over the frontside of the door to the desired length you would like the wreath to hang.

Cut the ribbon once you reached your desired hanging length.

3. Cut all the ribbon to the same length

Cut all of your ribbons that you will be using for each cabinet door wreath to the same length.

4. Tie your wreath to the ribbon

Attach the wreath to the ribbon by making a bow or knot.

5. Make any adjustments

As stated previously, make any adjustments by sliding the wreath up and down the cabinet before tightly securing the bow or knot.

Advantage: Keep the command hook on the door for year-round wreath hanging.

Disadvantage: This step can cost more money as the command hooks tend to be more costly than duct tape, and more ribbon usage is involved.

Pro Level:

1. Skip the ribbon

Skip the hanging ribbon altogether by simply adding command hooks to the frontside of your kitchen cabinets. Place the command hooks correctly according to directions on the package (not upside down).

2. Use string or yarn to establish a hanging height.

Make a measuring template using string or yarn to serve as a height reference when adding the command hook to each door. Use the string template to mark your hanging height with tape/pencil, so that you can place the command hooks at the same height for each cabinet door.

3. Add a bow at the top of the wreath to hide the command hook.

Pro tip: Make sure the command hook can hold the weight of your wreath.

Advantage: Inexpensive and the simplest way to hang cabinet wreaths.

Disadvantage: Command hooks may cause damage to the frontside of painted cabinet doors if not pulled off correctly.

Here are some jump starters to get your creative juices flowing:

What size wreaths should I hang on my kitchen cabinet?

Because cabinet doors can come in a variety of sizes, selecting an appropriate size wreath to accommodate your kitchen door can vary.

Typically. mini wreaths that measure approximately 8-10 inches in diameter will work best on a kitchen door panel.

Also, using lightweight wreaths made with metal hoop frames or embroider hoops can be a good option as they tend to lay flat against the cabinet and can easily hang with duck tape or a command hook.

How high should I place the wreath on the cabinet door?

Again, kitchen cabinet doors can vary in height and width, so it will be up to you to determine the exact measurement.

Pro tip: Be sure to avoid placing your wreath next to your cabinet door handle.

Placing a wreath near a door handle, especially if it is full of greenery, can get in your way of opening the cabinet door.

To get a visual of what height would look best for your kitchen cabinets, place a wreath up to the cabinet door and eyeball the space using painters tape or masking tape as a reference.

How many wreaths should I hang in my kitchen?

Deciding how many wreaths to hang in your kitchen can be determined by a few factors:

How many cabinets are in your kitchen?

If you have a kitchen with a lot of cabinets, you may not want to hang a wreath on every cabinet door as it can make your kitchen look overcrowded. However, I've seen homes that hang mini wreaths on every kitchen cabinet, and it looked stunning. I think it will depend on the size of ribbons and wreaths you plan to use.

Does your kitchen have a focal feature such as a window or stove hood?

Hanging a wreath on one of these focal features is a perfect place to decorate for the seasons, instead of hanging wreaths on the cabinet doors.

What can I use other than a nail to attach the wreath to the kitchen door?

Using a command hook is a popular option as you can leave it on the inside of your cabinet door all year long. There is no need to take it off every time.

Using duct tape or strong tape is another alternative if you're looking for something to use that you may have around the house. Duct tape is a temporary hanging solution that you can remove when taking down the cabinet wreaths after each season.

What supplies will I need to hang my wreaths on my kitchen door?

1. command hook or duck tape

2. ribbon

3. scissors

4. 8-10" wreath

5. clear tape or painters tape

How do I hang my wreaths evenly on the cabinet doors?

To ensure that you are hanging your wreaths evenly on the cabinet doors, you will need to mark the desired hanging height with tape or a small dot.

Then, make sure you cut all the ribbon you will be using to the same length.

If you want an exact measurement, you will need to measure the cabinet doors with a measuring tape.

However, I find that using the hanging methods noted above to work just fine with minor adjustments needed.

Where else can I hang mini wreaths in my home?

There are many places you can hang mini wreaths in your home. One of my favorite places to hang smaller wreaths is over a mirror. Draping a wreath over a mirror in an entryway foyer or a dining room can add more charm to a focal wall.

Hanging a smaller hoop wreath in a nursery is another trending option for new moms. Mini wreaths that feature dainty flowers that match the nursery colors help to create a cozy and warming space for the mom and baby.

Also, hanging mini wreaths in bathrooms and on gallery walls is a fun and creative way to add greenery to your home.
