This DIY wreath stand is a perfect solution if you don’t want to hang a wreath on your door, but you still want to be able to display a wreath on your porch.
If you happened to catch my little fall home tour of my porch and entryway in September, then you saw that I had a big burlap wreath hanging on our new side door where you enter the mudroom. I absolutely love this door and it’s 3/4 length glass panel. It’s simple and stylish, it lets a ton of light in, and it allows me to see outside onto the porch. Except when there’s a wreath hanging on the door! Sure, the wreath looked great on that door, but it was driving me crazy having so much of the view through the glass blocked. And that’s how this DIY wreath stand project idea came to be!
Why You May Want to Make a DIY Wreath Stand
Wreath stands are great because they allow you to display a wreath prominently if have a glass door situation like we do, but they can also come in handy for a lot of other different situations!
You can use them indoors if you want to display a wreath in your entryway, but you have an open floor plan and are short on wall space.
They’re great if you want to display a wreath and also a little seasonal sign or something on your porch.
A wreath stand is also perfect if you feel like your front porch is looking a little empty and plain and you want something substantial to fill a corner.
In the summer, you can unscrew the little hook and add something a bit bigger to hang a basket planter from it!
See how handy this simple little thing is? I”m fairly excited about the possibilities here, as I’m sure you can tell. 🙂
How to Make a DIY Wreath Stand
This wreath stand was actually made completely out of scrap wood that we had in our junk pile leftover from other projects and renovations!
Chris cut four pieces for the base out of 2x4s and just made a little 45 degree cut on one corner of each piece. The centre piece is just a 4×4.
Next he assembled all the piece together like this:
And attached it all together with some screws.
The finial on top is just a fence post topper that I picked up a the Habitat for Humanity ReStore a few years ago. It had just been waiting for the right project all this time!
We spray painted the whole thing in oil rubbed bronze, then attached a little hook from our stash of random treasures in the garage.
DIY Wreath Stand: The Results
So here’s how it looks on our side porch now!
I think it actually looks quite fancy and traditional sitting up there, especially for something made completely out of scraps and leftover doodads!
Chuckers seems to approve of it as well, which is always nice. 🙂
I have to admit that I will probably hang a wreath on the door at some point in the future again, just because they do look great up there, but it’s nice to have a great alternative option now for when the wreath starts to drive me crazy!
Do you have a door that you don’t really love to hang a wreath on?
