I’m sharing three simple ways to hang a wreath on a glass door along with my pick for the easiest and best way.
The house we recently moved into has a big oval of fancy leaded glass right in the center. So when I went to hang a Christmas wreath on the door, I realized the simple nail I used at my old house wasn’t going to work.
Instead I did a bit of digging and found three different ways to hang a wreath on a glass door. All three ways are super easy to do and won’t damage your door in any way and now my wreath is looking beautiful on the door.

3 Ways to Hang a Wreath on a Glass Door
1 – Use an over the door wreath hanger
The first option is to use an over the door wreath hanger – one end hooks over the top of the door and the other end holds the wreath.
Wreath hangers are available in a variety of finishes including black, brass, and clear plastic and typically cost $5-$10 each. Even so, this is my least favorite option.
Wreath hangers don’t always fit over all types of front doors correctly and even if they do fit, they may prevent the door from sealing well.
On top of that, they’re very visible behind the wreath and I don’t always love how they look.
2 – Use a Command hook
The second option is a simple Command hook.
I love Command hooks. I use them all the time; most recently to hang my garland on my mantel and to hang big paper bag snowflakes on my wall and they’ve worked great. I’ve never had any problems getting command hooks to peel cleanly off painted walls or stained wood, so I really wasn’t worried about being able to remove them cleanly from glass.
(And no, this is not a sponsored post – it’s just a product I use regularly and love).
There are many different styles of command hooks, but my favorite by far are these clear hooks with wire hooks.
The clear backing means that even if a little shows behind your wreath, you won’t notice it. It also means there won’t be a weird white rectangle showing through to the interior of your door glass.
And the wire hook is movable rather than rigid like other hooks, so it can easily grasp onto various types of wreaths.
3 – Use a suction hook wreath hanger
The third option is a clear suction cup hook.
The clear plastic hook suctions right to the glass. Then when it’s time to remove the hook, because it sticks by suction, there’s no chance of residue being left behind.
The downside is that the suctions hooks are bulkier than command hooks which can make it more difficult to hang your wreath in such a way that the hook doesn’t show. These suction hooks have mostly positive reviews, but I have to admit, I’ve had bad luck whenever I’ve tried suction cups in the past, so I was a bit hesitant.
The Best way to hang a wreath on a glass door
After checking out all the options, for my own wreath, I chose to go with a clear command hook. I’ve always had great results using command hooks, so I decided to stick with what I know works. (If you’d rather try a suction hook, the steps are basically the same.)
The first step is to clean your door glass so the command hook has a nice clean, surface to stick to.
Once your door is clean, hold up your wreath to determine the perfect height for your hook.
Remove the backing and stick it to the door. Make sure it’s centered.
As you can see, these hooks are nearly invisible.
Then you’re ready to hang your wreath. Since the hook can move around, it should be pretty easy to hook your wreath onto it.
So far, I’ve been super pleased with my wreath. The Command hook is completely invisible from both sides of the glass and my wreath feels super secure on the door.
I used to hang wreaths on a regular nail on our old wooden door and at times, I would have problems with the wreaths wanting to bounce against the door when it was opened and closed.
I haven’t had that problem at all with this wreath since the hook holds the wreath more securely in place. But if you do have this issue with your wreath, you can always add a second command hook to secure the bottom of your wreath to the door.
And that’s it! When you’re ready to pack your wreath away, you can either replace it with a different wreath or pull the release strip to remove your Command hook cleanly.
This is the same DIY flocked wreath I made many years ago and I’m happy to report, it still looks beautiful!
