Wreath Storage

So since I put up my fall wreath last week I needed to put the nice summer wreath I made a few months ago in storage. Now I am letting you see into the a place that few people have ever seen- our attic- but first let me tell you about how I made the wreath hangers. I'm a hanger snob. I don't know how but wire hangers make it into the house. Well, I do know how, the dry cleaners slips them in. Anyways I was grateful for them when I realized what I could use them for.
 First take the wire hanger and pull the middle down.

Curve the bottom to hold the wreath.

I had a heavy holiday wreath and the lighter summer wreath. The heavier wreath made the hanger sag so I looped the end of the loop around the hook.


How do your store off season wreaths?

You know this makes me think of "Mommy Dearest" Nonetheless, very smart idea!

Heather Landry said...

That is an awesome idea! I have to agree with Jaime that it's a much better use of coat hangers than the Mommy Dearest movie. Yikes!

Great idea. The only wire hanger I have in the house is for the vaccum cleaner hose,Took it apart to clean out the hose lol.
I hang my wreathes on a nail in the storage room.
I like your way, so much better :)

I cover mine in big trash bags then hang them like you did. Mine get stored in the basement or in the garage so I need to keep the dust/ dirt off of them.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit and leaving the sweet comment. I hope to see you again soon.
