How to Hang Wreaths on Windows for Christmas

A step-by-step video tutorial to learn how to hang Christmas wreaths on windows + how to add ribbon and bells for an elegant festive look.

Every year, I get asked this one question over and over about how to hang Christmas wreaths on windows. And it’s so simple, that I’ve hardly ever thought about sharing a tutorial.

But as I was putting up the Christmas wreaths on our living room windows, I finally remembered to document the process. 4 years ago, I found these faux boxwood wreaths at IKEA in the clearance bin for $5.

So I scooped up a BUNCH of them with the plan to cheer up all of our windows.

Best move ever! And they’re still going strong.

You can find wreaths almost identical here (still inexpensive but not quite as cheap as $5 clearance).

To change the look every year, I like to use different colored ribbon (or no ribbon at all to keep it simple).

These are some of my favorite ribbons including the burgundy velvet I’m using this year:

This time, I added these little bell ornaments I found last year for 50% off at Kirkland’s. These bells are very similar.

I’ve been adding little bits of Christmas here and there in the living room.

With it being pitch black by 6pm, the twinkle lights do my mood SO much good. I’m a total crabby person in winter. It probably explains why I don’t live in a state where it snows often. Haha!

Twinkle lights and cute wreaths and pretty ribbon is my saving grace right now.

  1. I love, love, love yet again this beautiful idea of yours. I am so doing this for all the seasons. As always, thank you!

    1. The bells give the perfect look to add bouncing light off the tree. I found these bells at Kirkland’s on clearance. The ones I linked in the post are very similar. 🙂

  2. These look gorgeous! I love a simple DIY with a big impact. And I’m with you – totally crabby in winter. Although, for me, it has more to do with my intolerance of cold than it does darkness. Love the wreaths. Thanks for sharing!
