Easy Triple Wreath Door Hanger

Make an easy, DIY triple wreath door hanger, in minutes, to dress your front door for Christmas. Or use this technique to make one for any season.

Use boxwoods or floral bases and let your imagination run wild!

It's time for another super simple decor project.

And this one's for Christmas. The most wonderful time of the year! 

I adore everything Christmas and I really enjoy decorating for the holidays.

However. I don't like complicated projects and, as much as I want the house to look fabulous, I refuse to spend a lot of dough.
I've always liked the look of  those triple wreaths they have in fancy catalogs. 

They're usually pre-lit and are super pricey. 

Now, I change my mind about decor way too much to pay a lot for anything, so every year, I pass and toss the catalogs in the garbage.


This year, however, after seeing a pretty pin from 5th and State, I decided to make my own and it much simpler than I thought.

To decorate my living room, I always hung three small, embellished wreaths in my windows. I got them for a song and each December I've put them up, out of habit, in the same place, for almost ten years.


Of course, if you don't have three wreaths handy, you can pick them up very inexpensively. I've even seen them in a three pack.

If yours are unadorned, a few sale picks can jazz them up.

 (Pardon the old, blurry picture)

This year, I wanted a cleaner look in that room, so I decided to lace up my wreaths and hang them on the front door.

I cut three even lengths of ribbon, looped them around two wreaths and made a knot. 

I hid it in the back, under the branches.

For a step by step tutorial with detailed pictures you can peek at my updated rustic triple wreath.  

It honestly took me less time to string them together and put them on the door than it did to write this post.

 I don't like over the door hangers, I find that my door never closes properly, so I used a magnet. 

I love the way the wreaths look like they're floating in the center of the door.

I was going to use red ribbon, for contrast, but I had this candy cane stripe on hand and I think it looks sweet, subtle.

This project would look equally as sweet with berry wreaths, twig wreaths, even three wooden stars would look great looped together.

I made one with flowers for Valentine's Day.

The possibilities are endless.

I'm very happy with my project and my house is smiling yours!

    1. Thanks Vel. When I saw it on Pinterest, I knew that I had to make it! :)

  2. I love this, Kim! Those wreaths look absolutely gorgeous, and when you triple 'em up like that it makes a huge impact! Great job!

    1. Thanks Kylie! They were looking kind of scrawny and old on their own...I guess there really is strength in numbers! ;) Hey, thanks for coming by! Happy December!

  3. That looks great! Aren't you excited when you think of a different way to use something you already have? I know I feel that way. :) Busy, busy here too.

    1. Hi Stacey! Thanks so much, I really do like them and yes, love that they were repurposed! I was ready to toss them, they looked so stale on the window, funny on the door, they look brand new!

  4. Oh my, the triple wreath looks absolutely beautiful on your front festive, easy and pretty project! Loving it! Thanks for the inspiration and for taking the time to leaving me the sweetest comment...and yes, just like you I absolutely adore decorating with red toile or red transferware :) Have fun decorating for the holidays, it's indeed the most wonderful time of the year....Hugs, Poppy

    1. Poppy, thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and check out my wreaths! I really do like them, even without the red ribbon! ;)

  5. Love it, Kim! It looks great on your door. I refuse to spend money on decorations too--it's more fun to make my own! Dee :)

    1. Much more fun, Dee, agreed...and I have seen your decorations, no need for you to buy anything!

  6. Great job on the wreaths, Kim. They really make a festive statement on your white front door. I like your attitude about tossing the catalogs and making your own decorations. My feelings exactly. And it's fun to repurpose decorations one already has into a new use, just as you did. But my question is, what are you going to put in the windows this year, now that you snagged the wreaths? ;D

    1. Believe it or not Nancy, I may just leave them blank! I have made a beautiful wreath with a big bow and lights for the fireplace mantle and I think it may be too busy with anything on the windows...but it ain't over 'til it's stay tuned!

  7. Oh I love the triple wreath idea, so beautiful. Your are so clever. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

    1. Thanks Marty, I really like it too and it was so easy! Happy December
