My Fall Wreath + How to Hang a Wreath on the Door

My Fall Wreath + How to Hang a Wreath on the Door

Few decorative elements will make your home feel as welcoming and festive as a seasonal wreath to greet you (and your guests) as you arrive home. Even if you don’t do anything else to decorate for a season, hanging a wreath on your door can be enough. It makes a great statement!

Somehow hanging a wreath on the door makes me feel a little more put together and on top of things.

Do you feel that way, too?

My Fall Wreath + How to Hang a Wreath on the Door

I love my new autumn wreath (it’s so stunning! This one is from Balsam Hill, it looks like it is sold out right now but look at their other fall wreaths or even Christmas and winter ones!). It just makes me so happy!

If you are wondering how to hang a wreath on the door (without damaging the door), even one with glass like mine, it’s actually pretty simple! All doors are different, of course, so you may find a better way, but here’s what I do.

My Fall Wreath + How to Hang a Wreath on the Door

I don’t use a wreath hanger, I just use a flat thumb tack (like the type you’d use on a cork board) and some string. Sometimes I’ve even used fishing wire so it’s clear, but regular ol’ string or twine works just fine, too.

I forgot to take a photo of this part, but I press the flat tack into the very top of the door itself, so you can’t even see it. Then the string is looped around the tack as well as tied onto the wreath. Easy peasy!

My Fall House Tour

Hello, friends! As always, I’m so glad you’re here. Not only am I inviting you in to my little house for a fall tour, but today you’ll get to visit FIVE other blogger friends who are on the tour with me! So fun, yes?   You’ll find their links below.

If you’re new to The Inspired Room, I’m Melissa and I’ve been blogging here since 2007! I’m also the author of a whole bunch of books you can find here. I have two more on the way (books, not babies in case that was confusing, my babies are almost all grown now) and I’ve actually been up to my ears in edits the past few week. But even though it’s been a wild few weeks, I LOVE fall most of all so it’s fun to have y’all over!

Today I’ll give you a tour through my main rooms so you can get the feel of our humble white brick house! We live in Seattle. We moved into our house three years ago this month, and we’re still making this place our own. It’s quite a process. So far we’ve painted inside and out, remodeled our kitchen, added two Dutch doors, lots of shutters, blinds, light fixtures, and some flooring and have done quite a bit of work outside, too. You can see our brand new outdoor deck here.

We have two furry pups, Jack and Lily, so you’ll see them running through here and there. They LOVE tour days and having people over.

My Fall House Tour

About eleven years ago I started an annual Fall Nesting series here on the blog. My philosophy has always been to keep everything pretty simple and just enjoy the slow unfolding of the season as I feel inspired.

So while I did unexpectedly find some pumpkin/gourds for my porch while I was at Trader Joe’s yesterday, for the most part I don’t do a lot of “fall decor.” But I am a big fan of just bringing in more cozy textures and looking forward to all the familiar fall nesting rituals!

Alright, enough of me chatting. Come on in and make yourself right at home.  You’ll find links to sources throughout the post and at the end, but feel free to ask questions in the comments. I love it when you say hi and let me know you’re here!

And….I’ll be quiet now so you can get on your way. Enjoy the tours! :)
