How to Hang a Door Hanger

Let’s discuss the different ways people hang their door hangers on their door!

When I hang my door hangers, I just use a staple gun and some jute string. It’s super simple. Cut your jute string about 15 inches or the size necessary for your door hanger. Knot the ends of the jute string and then hold your door hanger up to see where you should staple the string so that the door hanger hangs evenly. Staple right above the knots on the jute string and you have it! Worried about your staples going through your door hanger, check out this blog post where I talk about how to prevent that!  Now that you know how to hang the door hanger, let’s discuss the different ways people hang the door hanger on the door!

Using a Hook to Hang a Door Hanger

If you’re painting door hangers to be displayed on your own door you might consider adding a permanent hook to your front door. I use a permanent hook on my door and it is so convenient. I love how Ellette Shafer recommends using an antique wrought iron hook. It looks so elegant and beautiful!

Using a Wreath Hanger

A wreath holder is also a great way to hang a door hanger if you can’t add a permanent hook due to rental or damage risk. You can even add a bow to the door hanger string to spice it up a bit. Just hang the jute string or bow over the wreath holder and you’re ready to go!
