How To Make a Hanger on the Back of a Wreath

Sharing is caring!

Today in the wreath shop, I’m answering one of the most common questions I get from new wreath makers: “How do I make a wreath hanger for my wreath?” Keep reading or watch the video below and I’ll teach you how to make a hanger for a grapevine wreath and how to make a hanger for a deco mesh wreath.

DIY Wreath Hangers Tutorial

Let’s start with the grapevine wreath.

You can make this hanger with any thick wire, but you can get this Rustic Wire on Amazon that matches the grapevine and gives the wreath a more professional finish.

First, cut your rustic wire to 25″ and fold it in half. Lay your wreath on top of the hanger, and pull the tails of the wire up and around the top of the wreath.

Then twist the tails of the wire tightly around the loop to secure it.

Now just tuck the tails down at the back of the wreath and you’re all set!

Now let’s make a hanger for a deco mech wreath. (Or any wreath on a wire base.)

For this one, you just need a regular pipe cleaner.

First, fold in both ends, then fold the middle in the opposite direction to form a W shape. Then pinch the bottom corners of that W together.

Slide the tails under the top wire of the wreath base. Pull it up to the loop and twist them together a couple times until it’s secure.

Piece of cake!

    Thanks, Julie, I’ve been struggling with this, especially when I use unusual bases for my wreaths, like embroidery hoops. This is very helpful!
