DIY Wreath Hanger


Like many of you I see possibilites from......well, trash! My mom bought a new kitchen table and was getting rid of her old and worn-out one. Guess who took it home.......yep, me :) I will be using the table in my den/craft room but I really didn't need or have the space for 4 extra chairs. In my garage they sat until I brought one inside and started taking it apart. Then the thought struck! I was going to use the spindled legs to make my own wreath hangers.




I also make a lot of banners so these would come in handy! I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to just banners/bunting/pennants!! LOVE them!






Cute right?!? Here are the supplies you'll need to make you own wreath hanger:




I found most of the supplies at my hardware store except the hook which was purchased at Hobby Lobby. This project is cheap too........if you don't have any old chairs to steal a leg from you can always buy them! The unfinished finials were $1.22 for two, the molding was $1.99 and the hooks were $2.50 (on sale)


Start by screwing your molding into the base of your chair leg to create a stable base.




Next drill a hole for where you will screw your finials in.




Mark your chair leg where you would like your hook to be, drill pilot holes and screw into place.




Finished (unfinished) wreath/banner hangers:




I used Kilz Primer and Valspar White Gloss.




And ta-da!!



I made a black set as well for Halloween......btw, I'll have a super fun Halloween tutorial for you soon and I'll be using my new banner hangers!!


The finished product......






How do you cleverly hang your wreaths?

  5. Came over from HoH. How practical you have made spindles! I usually just wrap ribbon around them and use for a basket filler. Thanks for the great idea!

  14. Brooke...you just made my day. This is EXACTLY what I need {and didn't even know}!! I've always wanted a wreath hanger but have never found one...and to use it as a banner hanger? LOVE it. Would have never thought of it but am completely thrilled. I am soooooo making these!! And it would be awesome to make as a gift, too...my mom loves wreaths as well {looks like she's getting this for Christmas}! So happy you linked this up today. I'm featuring it on FB and I can't seem to pin it fast enough. Pure genius.

  19. This is just so smart! Our house has plaster walls, so its near impossible to hang anything on them. especially anything with some heft to it. But I always want some height on my mantel! With this, I could make one as tall as I want, and hang whatever I want without damaging the walls! Thank you so much for the inspiration ;D If you have a minute, I'd love for you to link up to Sweet Sharing Monday - http://saynotsweetanne.com/2012/sweet-sharing-monday-19/
