Fabulous upcycled DIY wreath ideas

June 10, 2019

 Are you thinking about how to brighten up your front door? To make your front entrance inviting and stylish? Like many in the UK we have a UPVC front door. UPVC windows and doors are great for insulation, keeping the heat in and reducing heating bills but a white door can be a little nondescript. Thankfully this is easy to change with easy DIY wreath ideas.

Today I am on a mission to add a splash of personality to our entrance. Firstly I have added plant pots filled with flowers – this immediately brightens up the entrance. Secondly, I am thinking about upcycled DIY wreaths – until doing a little research I thought a wreath and UPVC were not compatible but I am delighted to be proven wrong. 

How to hang a DIY wreath on a UPVC door

There are several ways in which you can hang a wreath, if it is for a few weeks on the run up to Christmas you can use a wreath hanger, these hang over the which is designed to bounce back. In the long term, I would be worried about compressing the but for a few weeks this should be fine the is designed to bounce back.

For a lightweight wreath, you can use command hooks, before applying the command hook to your door ensure the door is clean with rubbing alcohol (the command hook needs a clean surface to adhere to). Different command hooks can take different amounts of weight so check the weight of your wreath and make sure they are compatible.

Alternatively, you can use a magnetic wreath hanger. Most UPVC doors have steel in them so the magnet should work fine, or have a magnet either side of the door. You will need to consider the weight of the wreath with this option.

So having realized I can hang a wreath I am brainstorming the internet for wreaths made out of recycled materials.

Do you recommend a particular way of hanging a wreath on a UPVC door?
