Supplies you’ll need to make your own Cow Head Door Hanger:
- Large Cow Head w/Shiplap Detail
- Fluff Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Caviar Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Mini Chalk Couture Transfer
- Bright White Chalkology Paste
- Small Squeegee
- Gator Hide
- Greenery & Bow
This project starts with a Large Cow Head cutout from Twin Knobs Woodworks. The Large Cow Head is available with or without the shiplap detail. As you can see, I choose the cutout with the shiplap detail.
Paint the cow head with the Dixie Belle Chalk Paint color Fluff. Then, use a toothpick to remove excess paint from the shiplap lines. Depending on the coverage you want, you may need two coats of paint. Once you have achieved the coverage you like, let dry.
Next, use the color Caviar to paint the small tag and let dry. Once dry, I used a mini Chalk Couture Transfer and Bright White Chalkology Paste to add the “FARM” detail to the tag. You don’t have to do this step. Feel free to leave the tag blank and to use whatever paint colors best fit your style – it would be adorable as a brown or black cow!! This project is 100% customizable.
Finish everything off with a coat of Gator Hide. Then glue the tag to the cow head and add greenery and/or a bow.
What an adorable finished product!
