This is what I used to create my door hanger:
- Round Wooden Base & Welcome Cut Out
- No Pain Gel Stain by Dixie Belle
- Caviar Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Fluff Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Painter’s Tape
- Welcome Wood Cutout
- Paint Brushes
- Gorilla Glue Stick
- Gorilla Super Glue
- Ribbon or Pre-Made Bow
- Snipers & Pipe Cleaner or Floral Wire
- Staple Gun
To begin, I stained my round wooden base with No Pain Gel Stain in the color Walnut. My base came from Twin Knobs Woodworks and can be purchased HERE. For reference, the round door hanger is cut from 1/4” MDF and measures 18″. If you would like to add words to your door hanger please select the option for words that you would like to add to your purchase. The words are cut from MDF and will vary in height and length due to the nature of lettering. Approximate height is 7 inches and length is up to 15 inches depending on the word you choose. This is an unfinished wood product.
Since this is a oil-based stain, be sure to wear glove when applying.
Next, tape off your base so it’s ready for paint. I taped it off so that there would be a wood colored stripe down the middle that separated the two colors.
Paint the top portion with the color Fluff and paint the bottom with color Caviar.
Make sure everything is dry before removing the tape. I used a heat gun to speed up the process.
Once dry, remove the tape. You can see that I left a stripe of stained wood color exposed to separate the top color from the bottom.
Next, paint the wooden welcome cutout with the color Fluff.
For this type of detailed work, you will want to use a small brush. Be sure to get the edges too.
Once dry, glue the welcome cut out to the base using Gorilla Glue. I added it to the bottom portion of my base. The photo shows me using the the Gorilla Glue stick, but if you are hanging this outside you will want to use the Gorilla Super Glue instead.
To finish your door hanger, embellish with a coordinating bow and add greenery.
First, I clipped the greenery with wire cutters so that it was sized appropriately for the piece. I used 4 pieces for mine. The amount you use will depend on your greenery and your style preference.
To bundle the greenery together, I used a pipe cleaner, but you can also use florist wire to accomplish the same thing.
Once all of your embellishments are secure, it’s ready to hang on your door.

I really love these rounds! Oh, the possibilities. Thanks for sharing you talents.
You are always so kind, thank you so much!
What was used to hang it on the back up on the door? I’m trying to figure out how it would work if I wanted to use thick twine (almost like rope) to hang it versus putting a nail in the door? This is so beautiful!
We actually did use twine. Our bow and greenery cover it up just fine.
