Make Your Very Own Door Hanger!
- Wood door hanger – can be purchased at any craft store
- Ornament – OrnamentShop.com has personalized ornaments for every room or theme!
- Paint – any color acrylic paint or if you want to keep the natural wood color, use a wood stain
- Glue – a strong glue like Gorilla glue works well
- Clear Glaze or Varnish
- Any other embellishments
Step 1: Paint the door hanger. You will want to use a color that coordinates with the personalized ornament that you have chosen or a color to match the door. Let the paint dry.
Note: If you want to make sure that the paint doesn’t chip or rub onto the door, paint a coat of clear glaze or varnish over the paint to seal it and let it dry completely before moving on to Step 2. We used glitter paint and then a sparkle varnish on top for our princess door hanger.
Step 2: Using a pair of pliers, carefully unscrew the hook in the top of the personalized ornament.
Step 3: Cover the back of the personalized ornament with glue.
Note: Don’t glue all the way to the edge, to prevent glue from spilling out of the sides.
Step 4: Stick the personalized ornament to the door hanger. Let the glue on the personalized ornament dry completely.
Note: You will want to select an ornament with a flat back so that the ornament sticks flush to the wood.
Step 5: Embellish your door hanger with extra personalization, ribbon, stickers or any other crafting items or pieces you want.
That’s it! Now you have a whimsical way to welcome people to a special room in your house.
