Christmas Preparations: Hanging the Wreaths

How are your Thanksgiving preparations going? I’m not hosting Thanksgiving at my house this year, so I’ve been busy working on other things, including getting the wreaths up on the windows.

Hanging Wreaths on Windows

 

Hanging the wreaths is usually the first bit of Christmas decorating I do each year since it’s pretty much my favorite Christmas decoration of all.

One of the best parts about hanging wreaths on the outside of windows is how pretty they look from inside your home.

If you’re thinking of hanging wreaths on your windows this year, you’ll find a tutorial sharing the process I follow here: Hang Wreaths on Your Exterior Windows for Christmas

I’ll be posting a table for tomorrow’s Tablescape Thursday, so if you find the time tomorrow, stop by and link up your tablescape. InLinkz will be available and I’m looking forward to seeing your beautiful tables!

  2. Your wreaths are beautiful on your home, Susan! I am hosting Thanksgiving tomorrow and decorating for Christmas also! Have a great weekend and a blessed Thanksgiving

    Susan, Your home is beautiful and the addition of the wreaths really welcome Christmas. Thanks for all of the ideas on how to hang wreaths. I enjoy each and every one of your blogs! Have a wonderful Christmas filled with Love and Joy.

  4. Awwww…so pretty
    We usually hang wreaths too but have different kind of windows….so we got small but long metal rods and bent the top like hooks and inserted screws just above the window frame…permanent screw. Then we hook onto the screw at the top and hook to wreath at the bottom at about mid window….works great even when windy. I am having such a hard time getting into the mood this year. Reading your posts might help.

  5. I am HOPING to get wreaths on my windows this year too. I have several in my stash that I have never used. I hope I can get it done!!! Have a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving, Susan and enjoy that sweet grand of yours!!!!!!

  6. The wreaths are so classic, and classy. Have a warm and safe Thanksgiving.

  7. Love your wreaths Susan.
    Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving !

  8. I am always amazed when I see your home decorated at Christmas with those beautiful wreaths! I am amazed because it looks like it is an enormous task, although your directions are very clear! You are somethin’ else, Susan! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving !! Rosie

  9. They are beautiful. I love the way people decorate for Christmas in the U.S. In France, the decorations are inside, rarely outside, except for, say, city-center shopping streets.
    Houses here typically have working shutters, and everybody closes them at night, so it’s hard to hang wreaths–too bad because yours look so festive.

    Thanks for the info on the window wreaths! It truly is appreciated! Your home is beautiful! You may have mentioned where you buy your natural grass rugs for your home. I recently had someone stain my rug and need to replace it. Hard to find ones with nice borders. Need to replace before the holidays and I trust your judgement.

    Happy Thanksgiving Susan! Wreaths will go up tomorrow and cornstalks will come down! Pumpkins out to the woods for the deer. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  12. Your wreaths are really pretty …read your article link on how to hang them. Re: getting behind the secretary to plug in…I have a big buffet in my front sitting room that covers the outlet and as it is full of dishes I do not want to move it, so finally after many years it occurred to me to leave an extension cord there. I’m a slow learner I guess. It is easy to pull out and use whenever needed.

    • That’s such a great idea! I need to do that for several places in that particular room. Seems like the outlets always end up being covered up. Thanks for the suggestion, Jillian!

  13. I found the woody car / Christmas plates
    Individual at Walmart this weekend!

  14. Love, love, love your beautiful home and thanks for sharing so many great ideas!

    Those are great. Where do you recommend one buy wreathes like that? Are those lit or unlit wreathes?

  16. Your home is beautiful. I read your tutorial and can’t wait to decorate my home next year. We have screens in all the windows. Do you have any hints to deal with them? I would dread taking all of them down.

    • Thanks so much, Debbie! I’m not really sure how to hang them over the screens. I would be worried they might tear a hole in them. I removed my screens years ago because my painted said they trapped dirt and attracted spiders to build webs. Of course, I still have the spider issue, even after removing them, but I left them off because I love how the windows look without them…much brighter. Some of the newer subdivisions built in the last 10 or so years in the area where I live, actually won’t allow screens on the front of a home, only on the back. I never open my windows since it’s always too cold, too hot, too much pollen, too humid or too something so I haven’t missed them. If you do open your windows, you would obviously want to keep your screens. The only time I’ve missed mine was when I had hardwood flooring installed and wanted to open the windows to get fresh air in, but I was worried about mosquitoes. I stuck a large box fan in the window to draw out the smell of the polyurethane, so that worked pretty well. Otherwise, I really haven’t missed them. Just sharing that in case it’s helpful.
