Here’s how to deck the halls of your kitchen with mini wreath decorations that won’t damage from your cabinet doors.
Who doesn’t love the Dollar Spot at Target? It’s like a treasure hunt and I always end up finding at least one thing that would be perfect for a little afternoon project. Earlier this week I found these cute mini wreaths for $3 each in the Dollar Spot bins and fell in love with their natural, minimal foresty vibes, so I grabbed five of them. I honestly didn’t even know what I would use them for, but I scooped them up anyway.
When I was putting away groceries, I had the genius idea to use the mini wreaths on my kitchen cabinets. And fifteen minutes after the popcorn was put in the pantry, the wreaths were already up. Here’s how I hung the mini wreaths on my cabinets without using any tools or nails.
The first thing I did was remove the small hanging ribbon that came on the wreaths. (Correction, the first thing I did was open a bag of caramel corn) It was cute, but not what I needed to hang them on my cabinets. I dug up some old red velvet ribbon I had in my garage from a previous project, and luckily I had just enough length for the wreaths.
To attach the ribbon to the cabinet without ripping off the finish, I added a small Command strip horizontally to the inside of the cabinet doors. Command strips are the sticky piece that comes with Command hooks, but you can actually just buy the strips on their own, too. I keep a big zip-top baggie of Command strips and use them all over the house.
To hang the wreath, just loop the long velvet ribbon around the wreath, drape the ribbon over the top of the cabinet door, spread the two pieces out a bit, and stick them right onto the Command strip. By spreading them out a little, you’ll be able to get both ends of the ribbon to stick onto the same Command strip.
All that’s left to do now is throw away the empty bag of caramel corn (did I really just eat the whole bag?) and look around the house for more places to hang mini wreaths.
They’d also be cute on bathroom cabinets, wall mirrors, small windows, media cabinets, and tiny closet doors. I think I’ll add my last two to my Dreambox doors.
