How to Hang Christmas Wreaths on Windows Outside

 This is a picture of our home during Christmas of 2009.  We had a beautiful snowfall with lots of wind as you can see from the flag.  I wondered how I would be able to hang wreaths on the windows and keep them from blowing around.

This is how I solved the problem:
I attached heavy fishing line to the top of the wreath and ran it through a button.  We have new windows that drop down from the top so they can tilt in for easy cleaning, so I slid the top of the window down and dropped the wreath out, carefully holding on the the button at the end.  We don't have upper screens, so if you do that could be a problem.  I shut the top of the window catching the button on the inside.

I still wanted to anchor the bottom of the wreath so they wouldn't fly around in the wind.  I raised the lower half of the window and the screen.  I had previously tied a long length of fishing line to the bottom of the wreath.  I grabbed the fishing line attached another button at the length I needed it as you can see in the image and then cut off the excess fishing line.  Shut the screen down on the line with the button just inside the window.

Now I don't have to worry about my wreaths flying around!

I'll be busy decorating my real tree in our tv room today, making peanut clusters, and wrapping a few packages before the busy weekend.  What are you finishing up this week?


  1. What a clever idea! I am sitting back and relaxing today. Enjoying my new home during this wonderful Christmas season!

  2. You have such a beautiful home and this is a great tip. I'm going to do some crafting tomorrow. Get stuff out and have some fun! (make a big mess! lol) Holiday hugs!
