Secret to hanging a wreath on a brick surface!
I was fortunate to work for a fantastic designer not long after Dad closed our florist. He taught me so much about designing we did not accomplish in our business. There are techniques that I never used. This is one of them.
In homes during the 1800’s, hanging pictures on the wall was done utilizing a hanging rail or molding around the ceiling. A hook was used on a wooden rail or molding instead of putting nails in the wall. These rails also could handle the weight of larger pictures without damaging the walls.
Instead of hanging the wreath from a ribbon, I hung this wreath from a fishing line attached to fishhooks. The fishhooks and line can take the weight of a wreath. Many wreaths are light, but as you add more decorations, you also add weight
Because of the transparency of the fishing line, the wreath is emphasized. There are no wires showing from the ceiling. The fishhooks are slender, and blend in with the brick. Removing the wreath is achieved by removing the fishhooks from the rails. Enjoy!
