How to Hang wreaths on kitchen cabinets? This is one of the most disturbing questions most homeowners face, especially during the festive periods when you want your kitchen to look beautiful and decorated.
There are different ways and approaches to hanging wreaths on kitchen cabinets. Here I will be showing you how to hang mini wreaths using ribbons on your kitchen cabinet doors.
What Do I Need To Hang Wreaths Kitchen Cabinets?
- Command hook or Duct tape
The step and step procedure include:
Step 1: Set The Hanging Height
The first thing you have to do is hold your wreath up against the cabinet door to the exact height you will want to hang your wreath.
Step 2: Mark The Desired Hanging Spot
When you have gotten the desired hanging spot, the next is to mark the spot on the cabinet using chalk or marker.
Step 3: Measure The Length Of The Ribbon
To measure the length of the ribbon, hold the ribbon in place on the backside of the door. It should be about 2 inches from the top of the door. They drape the ribbon from the backside to the front side, touching the marked spot leaving at least 2-4 so that you can be able to make a bow or knot when hanging your wreath. Note that the longer the ribbon, the longer the bow tails you can create.
In one sentence, this step entails you cutting the ribbon to your desired length to match the marked hanging height.
Step 4: Create the Ribbon
Create the ribbons to suit the particular kind of wreath you want to create. Cut all the ribbons that you will use to hang wreaths of the same length.
Step 5: Attach The Ribbon To The Desired Location
Using the duct tape, tie the ribbon from the backside, and drape it over to the front side of the door to begin hanging your wreath.
Step 6. Attach the wreath
Attach the wreath to the ribbon by creating a bow or knot.
Step 7: Look Out For An Adjustments
Look out for any form of defects, from the wreath looking too loose or the ribbons not tightly securing the wreath. Immediately apply corrective measures when any form of fault is noticed.
The disadvantage of this approach is that the deco will be messed up if the ribbons are not cut exactly all the sizes. So you have to be a pro to undertake this approach.
As a new homeowner or someone with an intermediate level of knowledge on wreaths on the cabinets, you can try out the below steps.
Step 1: Use a command hook
Get a command hook, and place it on the back of the cabinet door in an upside-down position.
Step 2: Hang The Ribbon
The next step is to hang the ribbon of your choice around the command hook and drape the ribbon over the front side of the door to the desired length you have marked for hanging. Once you reach your desired hanging length, cut the ribbons.
Step 3: Cut The Ribbon Into Equal Length
Cut all the ribbons you will use into equal length to the desired hanging height.
Step 4: Attach Your Wreath To The Ribbon
Attach your wreath to the ribbon by creating a bow or knot.
Step 5: Look Out For Any Adjustments
Check out if amends needs to make or if the wreath is loosening hanging on the knot or bow.
The advantage of this approach is that the command hook on the door helps to hold the wreath hanging all year-round.
While the disadvantage of the approach is that it is less cost-effective, as purchasing the command hook requires more money than using duct tape. Also, more ribbons are needed for this approach to come out perfect.
The wreaths come in different colors and shapes, and everything you need can easily be gotten from online stores like Walmart or local kitchen or decoration stores.
How High Should You Place The Wreath On The Cabinet Door?
There is no specifies here because kitchen cabinet doors vary in height and width. So the choice to determine how high it will be lies on you. However, while calculating, be sure to avoid placing the wreath next to your cabinet door handle. This is because placing a wreath over a door handle can get into your way of opening or closing the door, which is not appropriate.
The wreath shouldn’t be too high to reach the ceiling or too low when the children’s hands reach it.
What Is the Recommended Amount of Wreaths Should I Hang On my kitchen?
Various factors determine the number of wreaths to hang in your kitchen. The factors include:
- Presence of focal features in the kitchen: Hanging wreaths o focal features is a better place for placing wreaths than the cabinet as it helps project the beauty of the wreath more. The more the focal features, the more wreath needed and vice versa.
- The Number of Cabinets in the Kitchen: If your kitchen is full of cabinets, it will look absolutely over crowed and choked if you desire to put a wreath on every one of them. However, you can make use of mini wreaths. I have seen kitchens with mini wreaths on every cabinet, and they look absolutely beautiful. So the nature and size of the wreath or ribbons also have a role to play.
