Every year I love adding wreaths to my interior windows for Christmas. Here is an easy way to hang Christmas wreaths on windows with or without ribbon.
Last year I hung a few wreaths inside in the kitchen and living room, but this year I added a couple to the dining room. It’s a great way to bring the outside in; even if the wreaths are faux there is still a feeling of the outdoors to be enjoyed from the warmth of your home.
This is super simple and by using the right type of hooks I can easily remove them after the season and reuse them next year.

Follow these steps:
- Place cup hook at the top of the window sill
- Determine how long you want your wreath to hang then double the ribbon length so you can loop it through the wreath
- If you want to add a knot or bow at the top measure for a little more ribbon for the extra length
NOTE: I used cup screws at the top of the window sill. These do leave a very small whole which no one will be able to see. Once the season is over I remove the cup hooks and re-use them every year.
The cup hooks are nice to use because you can loop the ribbon through and create a lose knot or a bow at the top of the window. Tying the ribbon correctly ensures the wreaths hang straight.
Hanging wreaths without ribbon
If you want to hang wreaths without ribbon you can attach them to the window with Command Hooks. For both of the windows below I went without ribbon for a cleaner look.
You can use any ribbon you like; this year I went with VELVET. Navy blue and green velvet were used in our house this season in several rooms. I even put blue velvet ribbon on my Christmas tree in the living room.
Navy and green velvet pillow covers and navy and green velvet ribbon and I love it. I have a deep love for velvet; there is just something so regal about it but when paired correctly can feel elegant without being overdone.
Hope that inspires you to add some wreaths to your windows and celebrate the season in style!
