Elevate Your Culinary Space with Festive Flourish: Step-by-Step Guide to Hanging a Wreath on Your Kitchen Cabinet
Pick a Playful Wreath:
Choose a wreath that matches the vibe of your kitchen and its decor. If you love classic, then go with an evergreen wreath or try a fun, easy DIY and let your personality shine through your choice.
Command Hooks to the Rescue:
Using damage-fee hooks like command hooks is a great way to hang your wreath on the pantry door. They are easy to install and won’t leave a mark on your cabinets. Simply follow the instructions and you’re ready to roll.
Mix and Match Small Wreath:
Who said using one wreath is enough? Said no one ever! Create a captivating visual by hanging a series of mini wreaths along your cabinet door. Think of it as a culinary advent calendar.
Tie It Up With a Ribbon:
The first thing I love to use is a festive ribbon to hang my wreaths. Play with different textures which add an extra layer of charm. This simple touch can make a big impact.

Are you feeling crafty? Craft a wreath using items from your kitchen like cookie cutters, wooden utensils, or herbs. Besides adding this personal touch to your culinary wonderland, it’s a fun project, like this one here!
Light it Up:
The best way to add a cozy ambiance to your kitchen during your festive cooking sessions is by adding some fairy lights around your wreath for a twinkling effect. It will look enchanting. Adding lights will not only enhance your wreaths during the day,but in the evening will add beautiful ambiance to your kitchen when the kitchen is ‘closed’ and the dishes are all cleaned up.
Kitchen Cabinet Door
Kitchen cabinets are the perfect place to hang a wreath. First, I cut the length of my ribbon and made a bow.
Once I attached the bow to my wreath, I cut a second ribbon and looped it through the wreath with a ribbon length long enough to go over the top of the door.
At the top of the cabinet, I used clear packing tape to attach to the top of the cabinet. If you don’t have a packing tape, painter’s tape could easily be used. I’ve used the clear packing tape without any issue to my cabinet doors.
When hanging my grapevine magnolia wreath, I attached the red ribbon with stripes to the back of the wreath with my hot glue gun. For fun, I added some red berries.
Next, I attached a command hook to the cabinet. Be sure the hook attachs securely by giving it plenty of time to set, usually an hour is best.
For the next step, using a small piece of pipe cleaner or wire, make a loop on the back of the wreath and hang on the command hook. This easy method works great and is the no fuss method.
Glass doors are the perfect place to hang a wreath as well. In this case, rather than use a suction cup, I used another type of command hook. With this hook I looked to use one with a small plastic hook rather than a command hook with a wire hook. Since the simple wreath was not heavy, this option worked best.
TIP: Don ‘t forget you can add weaths to any mirror or the back of a dining room chair.
I then added the rest of the ribbon I was using on my Christmas tree to this beautiful wreath. The rough edged velvet ribbon softened up the texture of the silver greenery wreath.
Adding a piece of ribbon to your decorations is always a good option to elevate a simple look. This one year I had used the same ribbon throughout my whole home.

Mesh or Wired Doors
For mesh or wired front doors, I would use the ribbon method. With this Fresh Rosemary wreath I attached it with tape to the back of the cabinet door.

Hanging a wreath on your cabinet isn’t just for the holidays. Tis the season to deck the halls, and what better way to infuse your kitchen with holiday merriment than by adorning your kitchen cabinets with Christmas wreaths? However, hanging a wreath on your cabinet isn’t just for the holidays.
Imagine a springtime kitchen adorned with vibrant floral wreaths, bringing the freshness of the season indoors. Choose smaller, colorful wreaths that reflect the blooming outdoors, instantly transforming your culinary space into a lively oasis.
During the summer months
During the summer, opt for nautical-themed wreaths adorned with seashells or driftwood to evoke beachy vibes that perfectly complement the sunny weather.
Fall brings an opportunity to experiment with rustic and harvest-themed wreaths. Think about incorporating elements like dried leaves, miniature pumpkins, or acorns for a cozy and inviting autumn ambiance in your kitchen.
After the Holidays
As winter approaches, consider swapping out your Christmas wreaths for elegant, snow-inspired alternatives, ushering in a serene winter wonderland that lasts beyond the holiday rush.
For a touch of everyday charm, choose wreaths that resonate with your kitchen’s color scheme or theme. Incorporate herbs like rosemary or thyme into your wreaths for a fragrant and functional twist.
