This simple DIY door hanger starts with the Autumn Oval Door Hanger kit from Twin Knobs Woodworks. These kits are perfect because you can make something totally unique using only paint and your creativity. Get this kit HERE and be sure to shop the rest of the site for other easy-to-use kits.
To create the same look as I did, start by painting the oval base with the color Drop Cloth. You can use any basic paint brush for this step.
Next, use the color Bunker Hill Blue to paint the letters and oval details as seen below. I use a makeup sponge to paint these smaller detailed pieces.
While that dries, work on the leaves.
For this step I used a blended mix of Dixie Belle Chalk Paint colors including Colonel Mustard, Terracotta, Muscadine Wine and Kudzu. To create the look I wanted, I randomly painted the leaves to resemble the changing colors seen on trees during the fall. There is no real right or wrong when painting this way. Just play with it until you create the look you want.
Next, use a toothpick to scrape the excess paint out of the faux shiplap grooves on the oval base.
To add some distressed accents to the piece, I created a custom brown paint color. I used the colors Terracotta and Kudzu, then added a small amount of the Muscadine wine to deepen it until I got to the brown I wanted.
Then I used a sponge brush to add the brown distressing details around the edges of the oval.
Once everything is dry, start assembling the door hanger. I used an instant adhesive, but feel free to use whatever adhesive will best hold up to the elements where the door hanger will be used.
After assembling, add a bit of twine for hanging and your piece is ready to display.
