Holiday kitchen Cabinet Wreaths: How to Easily Hang One of the easiest and most dramatic ways to dress up your kitchen for the holidays is to hang wreaths on your cabinets.
We’ll share my fast and easy way to hang Christmas wreaths, as well as a variety of options depending on materials you have on hand or your cabinet finish. We love this method to hang wreaths because it couldn’t be easier.
The repetition of the wreaths makes a stunning statement. Here’s Jodie’s Easy Step-by-Step Duct Tape Method
Measure the length of one ribbon by threading the ribbon through a wreath, pulling it up and over the back of the cabinet and giving it a couple inches of space to secure to the back side of the cabinet. To secure the ribbon in place, use two pieces of duct tape across each end of ribbon and secure them layered one on top of the other.
This may seem like overkill but I found that if I used just one piece of duct tape the ribbon underneath would eventually slip free at some point during the season. Be sure to attach each wreath paying attention to the length of ribbon hanging down from the top of the cabinet (you can measure this with a tape measure or do this by eye-balling it) so that the wreaths hang evenly.
In fact, you can base your entire room theme around the ribbon you choose. We’ve heard people worried about these potentialities but honestly, we’ve never had any paint removed or any residue problem.
If you are worried about your cabinets, or just don’t like duct tape, here are some more options to hang wreaths. With freshly painted cabinets to protect, Julie was cautious about putting anything heavy duty onto her cabinets.
Instead of duct tape she chose to use Velcro Command strips. This method cost a bit more since Velcro Command strips are more expensive than duct tape, but they did the job nicely.
Measure the length of ribbon needed to hang wreaths including the wrap over the top to secure on the inside. Use hot glue to adhere wreath to end of ribbon.
Attach one Velcro Command strip to inside top edge of ribbon. Attach one Velcro Command strip to inside center of cabinets. Hang easily by connecting both Velcro pieces. In this case, you can slide it off during the year, and reattach to the base next Christmas.
Some hooks are less industrial, and you can choose to either leave them up or remove for the year. Either way, Command hooks don’t leave any residue and will be very safe to use on all types of cabinet finishes.
I’ve been dreaming of a white kitchen for years. This year during the Covid Pandemic, I finally took the plunge and painted it myself.

With so many choices ribbon can blend in with your door color or you can make a statement and add to the look of your door decor.
To prevent swinging or movement of the wreath you can use a piece of double-sided tape to help secure. In fact, Julie’s last house in California was very modern.
When temperatures rise, suction changes and they have a tendency to fall occasionally. Ribbon is another solution if you don’t mind putting a small thumbtack hole in the top of your door or item.
