3 Ways to Hang a Wreath Without a Nail

Tis the season ... for hanging wreaths! Whether it's a fall-inspired wreath or cheerful holiday door décor, you'll want to be sure to hang your wreath with style — and without poking a large nail hole in your front door. Here are three easy ways to display your seasonal wreaths, without the need for a hammer and nails.

Hang on to it. For heavy wreaths, you'll want to opt for an over-the-door hanger like this one. It's white, painted metal, so it will blend nicely over a white door and be able to handle a large or heavy wreath.

Feeling magnetic. If you've got a glass or metal door, this magnetic wreath hanger is a great option. It holds up to 8 pounds, and is also a great option for garland or signs of almost any kind.

Tie one on. If you've got a light-weight wreath and like the look of a ribbon hanger, simply loop the ribbon around the top of the wreath and use thumb tacks to secure the ribbon in place on the top edge of the door. This works well with extra tall doors that are too long for standard over-the-door wreath hangers.

Hope you're inspired to add a pretty piece to your doorway!

Kids Corner: Easy Apple-Stamped Tote Bag

Apple season is underway for much of the country, and to celebrate, here's a cute and easy project to do with the kids. You'll want to help to cut the apple, but they'll have a blast painting and "stamping" the apple image on their very own tote.

1. Start by cutting the apple in half and remove the seeds.

2. Pat the apple half on a paper towel so the paint will adhere. 

3. Pour some paint on a plate and use a brush or sponge to generously apply it to the apple half.

4. Flip the apple cut side down and press firmly on the tote. Wiggle it a bit as you press the apple to the bag, but try not to let the apple slide around.

5. Remove the apple half slowly to reveal the stamp design on the bag.

6. Allow the paint to dry for a few hours. If needed, repeat the process again. You may want to draw a little stem on the bag.

7. Fill the bag with healthy treats or apples and add a fall ribbon on the handle to top off the project.

Here are the supplies you'll need:
