DIY Twine Wreath Hanger Tutorial
As a wreath maker, we always have a ton of metal wreath hangers lying around. Some are old and scratched up so we really don’t use them, but I hate to see things go to waste, so I decided to give an old red Christmas hanger a little wreath hanger transformation. I bought some jute rope from Walmart and grabbed my hot glue gun, and I really love the way this hanger turned out. It definitely has “farmhouse” charm, which is kind of the look I was going for!
HERE IS WHAT I USED TO MAKE THIS TWINE WREATH HANGER:
- Twine/Jute Rope
- Wreath Hanger
- Glue Gun/Glue
First, I flipped my hanger over, so that the back of the hanger was facing me, and put a small dab of hot glue on the underside of the wreath hanger, (I wanted to make sure that my door would still close properly, so I did not wrap the top of the hanger.) Then, I glued my twine to the underside of the wreath hanger and start wrapping the rope around the hanger.
Every few inches or so, I added a little bit of glue to make sure that the rope stays secure. I also am wrapping pretty tightly to make sure that there aren’t any gaps in the twine and that you can’t see the red from my wreath hanger.
I repeat this process until I get all they way to the very end of the hanger, and then I cut my rope leaving about and inch of extra twine. I wrap the extra twine around and place another small dot of glue to secure it.
There you have it, a simple and fun way to spruce up an old wreath hanger. Like I mentioned earlier, I love the “farmhouse” feel of using the natural twine rope. This hanger would be a great way to display a cotton wreath or boxwood wreath, and you can use it indoors or outdoors.
Here is the twine wreath hanger displaying my hydrangea ball door hanger. I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out, and it literally only takes a few minutes to make. Let me know if you give this easy DIY wreath hanger a try!
