The inside of our home is fully decorated for Christmas, but our exterior is still lacking! Our front porch is the next big thing on my list. I started decorating this weekend by making a new Buffalo Check Wreath that goes perfectly with the rest of my holiday decor this year. I mean, buffalo check and plaid are all the rage this year, right?!
I’m going to give you a quick tutorial on how to make this really simple wreath and a trick for how I hung it on our glass door.
Our front door is almost all glass and super tall, so hanging a wreath has been challenging. The door hangers are too small and I don’t want to damage our front door with a nail or screw. I was really happy when I tried the Command Brand Outdoor Window Hooks . They easily adhere to the door and peel off just as easily.
It looks perfect and it’s not super distracting which I love.
Here is a quick tutorial on how I made my wreath along with a few tips on putting up the window hook.
- Command Outdoor Window Hooks
- Wire Wreath Form With Wire Ties
- Buffalo Check Scarf (This site has several colors and they are only $13!)
- Silver Bells
- Floral Wire
I started with a Wire Wreath Form and a Buffalo Check Scarf. You want to leave a good amount hanging off (about 8 inches) and then carefully wrap the rest around. I didn’t use any glue. Then, leave about a 6″ gap on the wreath and let the remaining scarf hang down.
Using floral wire, tie some boxwood sprigs onto the wreath in both directions. To hide the branches I added 3 silver bells.
Here is what my door looked like before. I love our door but it’s always nice to add a little holiday cheer to spice things up.
I love these Command Outdoor Window Hooks . I also love that they come with multiple adhesive strips because I’m always changing my mind! I peeled off the backing and pressed it firmly against a clean window. Then, I peeled off the opposite and put on the hook.
And voila! My front door finally has a wreath! Our front door doesn’t get hit with much rain, but if yours does these strips are also water- and UV-resistant and designed to withstand all weather conditions such as rain, snow and extreme temperatures. So I know it will las tall winter :)
Hopefully I’ll have the rest of the porch ready for the holidays soon too!
