Need a way to hang a wreath on my wood with glass inlay front door

by Lisa
I need an unconventional wreath hanger to hang my fall wreath to my front door. the metal ones do not fit as they lift at the point where the glass starts preventing me from closing my door. are there any other ideas to hang a wreath for this type of door?

    Do you have enough glass to use a suction cup?

    I used a large removeable hook adhered to the metal portion of my door to hang wreaths on my front door. I've had it on for several years, and it has held up well. I've never had it loosen or felt the need to remove it. I have a large oval glass window that takes up most of the door, but, there is enough space to attach at the top and bottom. They have really pretty metallic ones out now (I think the brand is Command - you'll find in the hardware aisle) but mine is just plain white and still looks great, probably because of the full length glass storm door in front of it. I like small wreaths for each season at the bottom of the door, but, I'm sure it work well at the top also.

    There are magnetic wreath hangers - a hook on the outside and a really strong magnet on the inside of the glass. I've used on my glass storm door and it worked well.

    Command strips/hangers work great on my glass outside on front door. It's been there at least 3yrs. with no problems.

    Look for the magnetic wreath hangers. They seem to hold a lot of weight or use a command hook.

    Attach a ribbon on the back of the wreath and drape it up and over the top, but not hanging over the other side. Then thumb tack it to the very top side of the door (you know that part that is never seen). Looks classy and leaves no holes in your door.

    I use Diane's method but use a regular paper stapler to secure the ribbon to the top of the door edge

    They have hooks, that fit over your door, and hold the wreaths.

    I use a large Command hook the same color as my door and hang it UPSIDE DOWN on the INSIDE of the door, then attach fishing line to it and to the wreath, bring the wreath over the top to the outside and let the wreath hang below the windows. Stays put and fishing line is almost invisible.

    I put a Command hook on the back of the door, upside down, then attached a piece of ribbon or yarn to the wreath and put it over the top of the door. Attach I to the hook. Worked perfect for me!

    Use the magnet holders put one on each side of glass.

    I have a magnet wreath hanger. It attaches to both sides of the glass to hold itself together. I've had it for years and it's really heavy duty.

    put a nail on the top of the door (low enough so it does not interfere with the closing) but enough to tie a wire/string or narrow ribbon to it.
  • Stacey Prince Stacey Prince on Nov 15, 2015
    I would use a pretty piece of strong ribbon or fabric tape, loop thru a secure spot on wreath, then using a flat-headed large tack or short nail, hammer the two ends of the ribbon or tape into the horizontal top of the door. I've done this before and worked really well--and caused no damage.

    I hung a stick on hook on glass... Working for me!
  • Karenk Karenk on Nov 15, 2015
    I've used the 3M Command hooks that have the damage free stick and release for years and it works great on our front door. I also use the smaller ones to stick around the frame of the door to hang Christmas lights. Works great!!
  • T T on Nov 15, 2015
    use a heavy ribbon to loop on a secure part of the wreath and long enough to go over the door and hang a counter weight (another wreath or decoration) on the inside of the door. nothing to hammer in the door and you get two sided decorations one for inside the house and one for outside.

    I have a hanger that has a suction cup device with a hook that adheres to the glass door insert and then just hang your wreath.
  • Darla Burley Darla Burley on Nov 15, 2015
    I use a ribbon tied to my wreath and run it over my door to the inside. This is for a white store door, though. I then drilled a tiny white screw up near the top of the inside of the storm door and wrapped the end of the ribbon around it. I'm wondering if you could use a flat headed screw and drill down into the top of your door and get the same results.

    I second the command hooks. If you put them at 10 and 2 or even 11 and 1 it would hang nicely.
  • Maureen Fresia Filipe Maureen Fresia Filipe on Nov 15, 2015
    I ran a ribbon thru the wreath & brought both ends to the top of door & secured with a thumb tack on the top of door & cut ribbon so it wouldn't show on the other side of the door. Not sure if this would work with your door but a nice clean look.

    Command adhesive hook. They make pretty ones you can leave up to use year-round.
    • Karenk Karenk on Nov 17, 2015
      @Kelli I use my Command hook year-round also; spring, summer, fall and Christmas wreaths. Three years now and the original hook is still there, but I know I can take off at any time without damage or an unsightly nail hole.

    You should a Command™ Outdoor Large Hook, for the Command hooks are designed so you can remove without damaging the finish they are applied to. Here is a link to the outdoor hooks.
  • Jean Myles Jean Myles on Nov 15, 2015
    I'm with all the others 3M command hooks are what I use . They work on all hard to hang places.

    So hard not to get overly verbal when there's no photo worth 1,000 words to go by. Why not hang 2 wreaths, outside/inside the door, attached to each other by a loop of ribbon? Anchor the ribbon where most convenient; perhaps a length of duct tape across the door top, and a discreet tack in between the doubled over ribbon where most secure.

    How about a suction cup hook? you could attach it to the glass.
  • Joan C Joan C on Nov 15, 2015
    use mono filiment-- clear fishing line-- slip it through the back of the wreath to secure it, then tie a knot so you have a very long loop of fishing line. use a piece of duct tape through the loop to attach the fishing line to the top edge of your door. adjust the length of your fishing line loop so that the wreath hangs where you want it, keep making knots until you get it just right. the fishing line is invisible so the wreath looks like it's floating on the door. i have done this for years on fiberglass, wooden and glass doors on inside and outside doors.

    I use suction cups. Works great until a bird decides to nest in it!
  • JoAnn Robinson JoAnn Robinson on Nov 16, 2015
    Dollar tree has large suction cups and they work great.

    You could also use a the stick on command hooks. You put the plastic hook at the top (hook would be upside down) about 1 1/2" from top of the door but on the inside of the door. . Then you take string, fishing line, ribbon, etc to secure your wreath. Start by placing,whichever you decide to use, I will say ribbon, to the wreath then up over the door around the plastic hook and back over the door and then attach to wreath. This way you don't see what the wreath is hanging from and when Christmas is over you just take down the command hook having no damage or permanent mark anywhere.

    magnetic hangers?
  • Deborah Kulka-maclellan Deborah Kulka-maclellan on Nov 16, 2015
    I have had great success with the stick on hooks and they do NOT leave any residue on the door- just be sure to use the ones made for outdoors.
  • Joanna Joanna on Nov 17, 2015
    Since your door is wood, you could use fishing line and a flat thumb tack. Instead of the wreath hanger going over the top of the door, press the tac into the wood on the top of the door.
  • Joan C Joan C on Nov 17, 2015
    joanna, that's exactly what i do, but i use duct tape instead of the thumb tack because i can't get a tack in my fiberglass door. great minds think alike : )

      That's what I like about this site! We can all brainstorm together.

    In my area, Ace Hardware has really heavy duty suction cup holders, and I use these on my front glass door.
  • Sandra Sandra on Nov 23, 2015
    The thumbtack might stick into the top of your door. No hole left on the front.
  • Lisa Lisa on Nov 28, 2015
    Thanks for all the helpful suggestions, this is just the greatest community!! I especially loved the tack on top of the door suggestion which is what i used with success!
  • Karen Karen on Nov 28, 2015
    I have a very strong magnet with 2 parts, one hangs your wreath, the other goes on the other side of the glass and holds the wreath magnet in place. Don't remember where I got it, but it was made just for this type of problem.
