Inside: How to hang wreaths on kitchen cabinets: Tips and tricks to make it quick and easy to do.
I recently bought a bunch of mini wreaths that I wanted to hang on each of my cabinets in my kitchen. It was only when I got home that I realized I didn’t have a wreath hook that would fit such a small door or a small wreath.
So what was I to do? I was very determined to be able to hang these little cuties. I had a vision in my head of my kitchen all decked out for the holidays, and I was not willing to give that up.
So I tried a few different methods over the course of a week. I left each one on for a few days to see how long it lasted with how much I opened and shut my cabinets, and I think I have found 2 of the best ways. So, if you are wondering how to hang wreaths in the kitchen cabinets, I am going to show you how!

How to hang wreaths on kitchen cabinets: Command Hook Method
As I said above, I tried many different ways of hanging wreaths to see which ones worked best. I could not for the life of me find a wreath hanger that would fit on my cabinet door or that looked cute enough.
At first, I was going for a very clean look, and those big boring strips hanging behind my wreath were not cutting it for me. So I found some hefty command hooks.
First, you are going to want to measure your cabinets. Find the exact ratio that you want to hang your wreaths in regard to your cabinet doors. For example, do you want them smack dab in the middle or closer to the top? I recommend holding your wreaths up on the door to see what you like.
Once you have decided, use a measuring tape and a pencil to mark the spot on your door where you want to hang the wreath. Keep in mind that you will not be hanging the wreath from the top but closer to the top of the middle(depending on the wreaths you have). So your hook will go down a little lower.
Do this to every single door. The reason why I avoid using exact measurements when explaining it is that your cabinets may vary in size. The best thing for you to do when this is the case is to choose the same placement for every door, not the same inches.
Once you have your markings, you can start setting up the command hooks. Make sure to wipe down your spot with alcohol to rid it of any oils. Then just apply your command strips according to the instructions on the package. Keep in mind that the hook should match up with the mark, not the top or bottom of the command hook.
And last but certainly not least, hang up your wreath! I am assuming if you are going with this tutorial, then you must be working with a wreath that either has a loop for hanging or a wire back that you can work with.
Take a step back and look at your handiwork. Pretty cool, right?
How to hang wreaths on kitchen cabinets: Ribbon Method
Next up, this tutorial is for those of you who have wreaths that didn’t come with wire backing or loops to hook onto. It is also for the people who want to add a little extra character to your cabinets.
I actually learned this method a while back when I was trying to come up with a cute way to hang a wreath on my front door. I figured since cabinets are just tiny versions of doors that it would translate to this seamlessly, and I was right!
Okay, for this, you will need:
- Command Strip Hooks
To get started, we will need to find the exact spot that you want your wreaths to hang on your cabinets. To do this, you can just hold your wreath up to the door, and then take your ribbon and loop it into your wreath until you are able to hold it like a purse.
Next, you will hold that up to the door until it is at the length that you decided on. Take it down, and then flatten out your ribbon. Add about three more inches to the length that you have, and then cut it. Use that ribbon length as your basis and cut the rest of the ribbon(or as many as you need for the doors).
Next, you are going to fasten your command strips to the back of the door. Measure it exactly 3 inches down and secure your hook according to its instructions. Make sure that your hook is facing down. This way, the ribbon has something to secure.
Now we are going to secure your ribbon. You can do this by making a tight little knot where the two ends meet. Do this on every single wreath until they are all tied and ready to go.
All you have left to do now is hang them! Pick up your wreath and delicately put it into place. Then you just have to loop the knot around the hook.
Repeat this on every single wreath until they are all put on. Take a step back and make sure that they are all centered and even. I know it can be infuriating when one is out of place, but no one but you will notice. Now, if you take a step back and notice that one is half a foot out of place, you may want to take the time to rearrange it.
So, there you go. These are two of the best ways to secure a wreath in a kitchen cabinet. Though I am sure there are other ways, these two will not harm your cabinets. So they are renter friendly! As a renter myself, this was a non-negotiable factor. The rest of the ideas online suggest staple guns or nails, and I am not going to do that to my beautiful cabinets.
