Happy Wednesday! Yesterday I decided to hang a grapevine wreath from the antique window in my dining area. It took me more than one try to get it up there (the cats got tired of me dropping it and hid under the bed all afternoon). I thought I’d share how I did it…in case you’re as DIY challenged as I am! 🙂
My mom is a huge fan of using straight pins to hang things. They are stronger than you’d think, and leave smaller marks in your wall than any nail! I used a straight pin to hang this wreath. Here’s how I did it:
Carefully hammer the straight pin into the window. It’s easy to bend and warp the pins if you’re not careful! Tap, don’t whack. 🙂
You can wrap thin wire around a piece of the grapevine if you want the wreath to hang directly in front of the pin (pictured below). I found I needed a little more length in order to center the wreath on the window, so I tied a longer piece of twine around the top section of the wreath.
I love the texture it added to the dining room wall. Isn’t it great when a simple touch makes a big impact?

I hold my fingers around the base of the straight pin as I tap it with the hammer. This keeps it from bending. Your window looks cute!
I’m afraid I’ll smash my fingers if I do that. Ha!
