Looking for easy and simple ideas for holiday decor? Here are four easy solutions for how to hang a wreath on the back of a chair.

Happy Saturday, rock star.

If you showed up here because it’s Saturday and you were looking for Thistlekeeping?

No worries.

Just scroll to the end of the post where I put together some of my favorite links from the week.

But today we are doing something a little different. Today I’m answering one of the top questions all of you asked when it comes to Christmas decorating….

…..”How do I hang a wreath on the back of a chair?”

Not only do I love the question (of course you all are brilliant and ask the best questions) but I love the answer that I found.

Truth?

I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited to share a solution than this one.

So today, on DAY 4 of “12 Days of Getting Ready For Christmas” with my amazing friend Leslie from My-100-Year-Old Home, I’m sharing 4 different ways (including the most innovative idea EVER) for hanging a wreath on the back of a chair.

Happy day friend.

It’s a good day to be us. 🙂

How To Hang a Wreath On the Back Of a Chair

Wreath hanging method number one:

I’m going to start with the easiest way to hang a wreath.

A ribbon.

Just like I hung these mini wreaths on the back of these stools.

And here’s how I did it:

  1. Cut a ribbon about 18″ in length (depending on the width of your stools).
  2. Don’t notch the ends of the ribbon yet because it can get frayed when you thread it through the wreath.
  3. Thread the ribbon through the wreath and tie to the chair with a bow (the kind you tie your shoes with).
  4. You can add the bow to the front of the wreath or the top of the chair—whichever look you like best.
  5. I find a 1″ ribbon works well for this method.
  6. After your bow is tied–notch the ends of the ribbon to look fancy.

Wreath hanging method number two:

But KariAnne–you say.

What if my chair is fabric? What if it doesn’t have a place to tie a wreath?

No worries.

Enter wreath hanging method number two—tie the ribbon around the chair.

And here’s how to do it.

  1. Cut a ribbon about 24″ in length (depending on the width of your stools).
  2. I find a thicker 3″ wide ribbon works well for this method—like this woven burlap ribbon.
  3. Thread the ribbon through the wreath and wrap around the chair.
  4. Tie a single knot (not a bow)—tying the wreath onto the chair.
  5. After your bow is tied–notch the ends of the ribbon to look fancy and allow the ends to drape down slightly curling the ribbon at the ends.

Wreath hanging method number three:

But KariAnne–you say.

What if I don’t want to use ribbon with my wreath? What if I have a chair I don’t want to tie anything onto? I just want the wreath to hang on the back of the chair.

No worries.

Because I have the MOST BRILLIANT OF BRILLIANT IDEAS.

Are you ready?

Are you sitting down?

Grab a chair because you’ll need it after I share this.

// Command Strip hanger //

It’s a Command Strip loop hanger.

Yep.

Have you ever seen anything like it?

Oh, good.

I hadn’t either.

But it is the most perfect invention for Christmas and the holidays that I’ve ever seen.

You can see the hanger here.

// Command Strip hanger //

Here’s what it looks like when it’s looped around.

You just slide the end in and attach.

It holds up to two pounds.

Here’s how I added the wreath to the back of the chair.

  1. I added a Command Strip to the back of the hanger.
  2. Then I stuck it on the back of the chair.
  3. I looped the hanger around the wreath.
  4. Then I clicked it in place.
  5. It’s so easy to click in and out of place.
  6. I switched out several wreaths to test and see if it would hold the weight and it worked perfectly.

Wreath hanging method number four:

But KariAnne—you say.

I like the method of hanging the wreath with your new-fangled invention you just showed us, but what if I wanted to add a ribbon.

No worries.

I have the perfect solution for that.

  1. Cut a ribbon about 18″ in length (depending on the width of your stools).
  2. I find a 1″ ribbon works well for this method.
  3. And a Command Strip to the back of the hanger.
  4. Stick it on the back of the chair.
  5. Loop the hanger around the wreath.
  6. Click it in place.
  7. Thread the ribbon through the loop at the top of the hanger and tie a bow (the kind you tie your shoes with).
  8. After your bow is tied–notch the ends of the ribbon to look fancy.

Just know I am sitting here smiling.

    I haven't worked up the courage to go to an estate sale, but now that I've read the article, I might try! I loved the look of the fall porch as well as the turkey charcuterie board. How fun!
