Step 6: Hang the DIY Fall Wreath from your door. Make your letters “FALL” down the door. Here are a few hanging options.

METAL DOORS- I have a metal door so nailing anything to it is out of the question. To attach the ribbons to the door, Used four 3M Command hooks and applied them to the inside of my door. Applied them upside down so you could tie the ribbon to the hook. The ribbon extends from the hook, over the top, and down the front of the door. A less expensive (though less attractive) option is to use painters tape to secure the ribbon on the inside of the door. The choice is yours.

WOOD DOORS- If you have a wood door you can pin each ribbon to the top edge of the door with an upholstery flat tack. Tap it in with a hammer.
