Composite Doors with a Wreath Attached

Composite Door with a Wreath

The holiday season is nearly upon us, and it's almost time to get into the Christmas spirit and hang your festive wreath.

Maybe you want to make your door look amazing after you've stained it by adding a wreath. Can you attach a wreath to your composite door, though?

Hanging A Wreath Without Damaging Your Door

Having a composite door as your front door is beneficial for several reasons.

Yes, just like a uPVC door, you can hang a wreath on it, but you want to be careful not to damage or scratch your front door.

Let's quickly tell you how you can safely hang Christmas wreaths on composite doors like ours.

Using a front door knocker

Door knockers are ideal for hanging wreaths with ribbon. If you have a door knocker, tie your wreath with a long string or ribbon. Ribbon, in combination with a wreath, has made for some very Christmassy doors through the years.

If you don't have one but have a letterbox, you can do the same using ribbon or similar material to hang your Winter wreath through your letterbox properly.

Otherwise, a specifically designed hanger is likely the easiest way to hang your wreath on your door.

Using a door wreath hanger

Composite door designs differ extensively. Depending on the design of your door, a sticky hook, like a Command hook, is perfect for hanging a wreath.

It's self-adhesive, so after you identify the desired height for your favourite Christmas wreath, clean your composite door with a soft cloth and some soapy water to remove loose dirt from the door surface before wiping it dry.

Peel off the backing paper from the hook and stick it to the door surface.

Purpose-made wreath hangers won't cause permanent damage to the door's outer skin, which would happen if you used nails or staples, for example.

If you're worried that a particular wreath hanger won't hold the weight of your wreath, look at using another product.

Design your door

Using over-door hangers

You can hang a wreath using door hangers that hook over the top of a standard-width composite door. You can pop them up in seconds and won't have to worry about glue residue.

They're height-adjustable, and you can use as many as you like, depending on how many points you want to suspend your wreath.

These wreath hangers come in several colours, meaning you can match your hanger and wreath. With a thick door, ensure your hook is adjustable, and always make sure your door closes properly when the hook is in place.

Using a magnetic hook

If you decorate every year, getting a magnetic wreath hanger is worthwhile as long as it works on your composite door, which it should, as metal forms part of standard composite doors.

Magnetic hooks enable you to change your wreath's position as much as you choose and are an ideal solution designed specifically for the job.

They work with magnets on either side of your door, with a hook on the outside to hang your wreath. These work excellently on glass panels thin enough to allow strong magnetism. Be warned; they aren't cheap compared to many other options.

Using a suction cup

These suction cups are sold all over and are easy to use on all composite door designs. Attach the cup to the correct position by pressing it until the suction takes over.

They don't leave residue; you can reposition them without losing effectiveness like you will if you need to unstick an adhesive-based product.

Like command hooks, clear suction cups will blend in with any door.

Suction cups will work well on composite doors and form a strong seal. You need to make sure that you check the recommended load before you buy, though, especially if you have a large wreath.

Small or cheap cups might not be able to hold a heavily decorated wreath for too long.

Hang a Wreath in a Solid and Memorable Way

You only need to hang a Christmas wreath once a year, so when you've got one to hang on your composite door, make sure you do a great job without damaging the door itself.
