Wreaths are the ultimate Christmas decoration, adding festive sparkle to many different areas of your home, but if you live in a rental property or don’t want to drill any holes in your wall, you’ll need an alternative hanging solution. Knowing how to hang a wreath without nails will preserve your walls or mantel, but it will also make hanging and removing decor quickly much easier.
Whether you’re trying to keep your wreath on your tray or you’re trying to find a solution to hanging it under your mantel for a unique look, these DIY methods should make it much easier to achieve your Christmas decor look. Re-aim for, without any damage.
How to hang a wreath without nails
Knowing which products work best for hanging any decor is essential to ensuring your Christmas decor is executed perfectly. From command hooks to creative solutions like a tension rod, your wreath will be securely attached to any hooks cleverly hidden from view.
1. Christmas wreath wire ties
If the wreath you are hanging is all green leaves, using Christmas tree bow ties is the perfect solution. They will blend in with the collar so that they are exposed around the back of the handrail if this happens.
If you want an impressive Christmas ladder decor scheme, it is essential to make sure you have all the necessary ties possible so that you can add ornaments and additional foliage to a simple wreath.
2. Driving hooks
Command Hooks are a lifesaver for any household, and we always recommend keeping them handy in a drawer for a rainy day. They’re great for hanging art without having to drill a hole in the wall, which is essential if you live in a rental property.
There are many command hooks available for different uses as well. The clear hooks will make it easy to hang heavy items like wreaths or wreaths, without them showing. Instead, decorating clips will keep each wreath section smaller and slimmer in the exact place you want it.
3. Garden wire
The key to hanging your wreath without nails, while ensuring it looks as elegant as possible, is to use garden wire.
“Garden wire is also what I use to attach the wreath to the railing, that way it goes under the railing instead of on it, so you can still use it (and the kids can’t pull it out by accident!),” recommends Interior designer Francesca Harris.
“I have a big piece of wire at the top that I wrap around the banister and a mandrel to ensure it doesn’t slip, and then I secure it again a few times along the rest of the garland. Because it’s green, you don’t see the wire in the garland at all, it’s just a tiny little wire that’s on the Handrail.’
4. Tension pole
This tension rod wreath is a Christmas must-have because it provides the opportunity to add a wreath to an area where there is nowhere to string it, such as a hallway between rooms. All you need is a shower tension rod and a wreath of your choice (plus bows, lights or ornaments for added festive magic), and you simply roll up the wreath once the tension rod is in place between the walls.
With a thick enough wreath you can hide the entire look of your shower rod, so you won’t need to worry about matching the color to your walls. They are completely damage-free, and you can easily reuse them for seasonal decorations at other times during the year.
Whatever nail-free hanging solution you choose, it’s a good idea to stock up before the Christmas decorating season.
