Supplies I used for my Christmas Door Hanger:
- “Joy” Wood Word Blank
- Oval Door Hanger Blank
- Fluff Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Barn Red Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Caviar Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Houndstooth Dixie Belle Stencil
- Gorilla Super Glue
Get started by gathering your supplies. For me, the ribbon shown above was my color inspiration. Feel free to do the same with ribbon that best fits your holiday decor theme.
To begin, I painted the Oval Door Hanger Blank with the color Fluff from Dixie Belle Chalk Paint.
While the door hanger was drying, I painted the “Joy” Word Blank using the color Barn Red.
I like to paint work cutouts with a makeup sponge. Simply add paint to the end of the sponge and pounce the color onto the surface.
I applied a second coat to achieve a bold red color I wanted. Add as many thin layers of paint as you need to get the color saturation you like.
Once the “Joy” Cutout was finished and the oval was dry, I used the Houndstooth Stencil from Dixie Belle to add another element to the project.
First, place your stencil and have your paint handy. I used the color Caviar from Dixie Belle.
When stenciling, I also use a makeup sponge to apply the color.
Add a very thin layer of paint to the sponge and pounce the color onto the stencil. Be sure to use up and down motions. Do not rub the paint across the surface.
Add thin layers of paint to the stencil until you get the color you’d like and let dry. I only did one coat of paint because I wanted a lighter look.
Once the surface is dry, I used Gorilla Super Glue to attach the “Joy” Cutout to the surface.
Next, use a drill to create two holes at the top of your door hanger.
Then, use the holes to attach some ribbon or fabric for hanging.
This is also where you will attache a larger bow embellishment, if you’d like.
As you can see, this project makes for a great door hanger or wall hanging for your holiday home!
