I was decorating the house the other day and I needed a simple way to hang a wreath on the mirror over my mantel. I had a regular wreath hanger you can buy at the store, but it was too long. It hung too far down the mirror. Like a dork, I attempted to tape it up and they fell…duh! But you know, I was decorating all day and I wanted quick fix.  So, I sat and stared at it for a minute or two. I grabbed a wire hanger and made a quick DIY wreath hanger. I just thought I would share this super easy tip with you!

All you need is:

  • Wire hanger
  • Wire cutter

Step One:

Cut the top of the hanger as shown with a pair of wire cutters.

Step Two:

Straighten the hanger as best as possible into a straight line. It doesn’t have to be perfect.  Grab the middle and fold it in half.

Step three:

Make an “S” shape, squaring out the back so that the curved part is the hanger, and the ends of the hanger are the back.
