When it comes to outdoor decorating for the holidays, I like three things: light balls, perfectly strung white lights, and wreaths on the exterior windows.
But when it comes to getting those wreaths hung up, it can be a little nerve-racking. What if strong wind gusts knock them off? Or your suction cup decides to stop doing its job and the wreath comes crashing down?
So what’s the best way to hang wreaths on windows?
Let me show you the easiest way to hang wreaths on windows.
When I say easy, I mean easy. No ladders, no fear of falling, no struggling to get suction cups to work. All you need is some fishing line and a drywall anchor!
Get ready for the shortest and easiest holiday tutorial.
What You’ll Need
- fishing line
- drywall anchor
Step 1: Tie fishing line around the top of your wreath.
Yup, just loop it around the top of your wreath and move onto the next step.
Step 2: Tie the fishing line around your drywall anchor.
Add a few knots to make sure it isn’t going anywhere and then double-check that the fishing wire is the same length as the fishing wire that’s around any other wreaths you might be hanging.
STEP 3: Open the window and place the wreath outside.
Make sure to keep a firm grip on your drywall anchor as you hang the wreath out the window.
Step 4: Close the window leaving the drywall anchor on the inside of the house.
Go outside and double-check that everything is placed just the way you want it.
Wasn’t that simple?? Now you have no excuse to not have wreaths hanging from every window!
And the best part is…you can leave the fishing line and drywall anchors attached to your wreaths so all you have to do next year is fluff the wreath and hang them out the window.
