I have had this massive mirror in my house for so long, and I just never knew what to do with it. I knew that it felt like it was lacking something, but I just never knew what. Then one day I was scrolling through Instagram, and I saw it. Someone hung their wreath onto their mirror! And it was SO CUTE.

How to Hang a Wreath On Mirror
Okay, I think you are going to love this: Hanging a wreath on mirror is actually a very simple task that requires little to no skill; it’s affordable and easy, plus it won’t damage your mirror. You literally have nothing to worry about! You are really only going to need three things:
- A Wreath
- A Ribbon
- Clear Command Strip for Glass
That’s it! Once you have those things, you are ready to start hanging your wreath!
Step One: Loop Your Ribbon
Now, this step is optional. If you have a wreath that already has spaces for you to hang it from, then you are good to go. But if you don’t, you are going to need a ribbon.
Measure out how long you want your ribbon to be, and then cut it. This is going to be how low your wreath is going to hang, so make sure you take that into consideration. I wanted my wreath to hang about 7 inches, so I cut my ribbon to be about a foot and a half long. I added those extra inches so that way, I could tie a cute bow at the top.
Once your ribbon is cut, loop it around your wreath through the center, and then tie the two ends together. I made mine into a beautiful little bow. Highly recommended!
Step Two: Add Command Strip
This is a very important step, because without you are not going to be able to get your wreath hung without it. You can follow the instructions on the back of the command box, but for a good rule of thumb:
- Make sure that your mirror is clean. I use an alcohol wipe to ensure that there are no residual oils or anything on the glass. Otherwise, this could just pop right off, and you do not want that.
- Add the command hook(after following instructions about adding the sticky strip to it) and hold to the area of the mirror that you are going to want to hang your wreath in. This doesn’t have to be perfect, but if you are worried about it, use a rule to choose your placement.
- Hold the command strip for at least 30 seconds straight, very firmly. This will help it to stick.
Step Three: Hang Your Wreath
That is all, folks! Now you get to hang your Wreath. Just gently pick it up by the ribbon and lightly hang it onto the hook. Make sure that it holds before walking away.
That is it…you’ve done it! You have hung your wreath on mirror! I told you it would be simple, didn’t I? There are so many little crafts that we can achieve at home, and we don’t even realize it!
