This is the Hello Summer Door Hanger Kit that we are using for today’s project. It comes with all of the wood cutout pieces you need to create your own door hanger for summer. Get a closer look at everything that is included with the kit by clicking HERE.
Begin by painting the round door hanger base with the color Whitecap and let dry.
While your round base dries, use the color Anchor to paint the letters and watermelon seed cutouts.
I paint these smaller pieces using a makeup sponge. To paint with a sponge, simply pounce the sponge over the letters using thin even coats of paint until you reach your desired coverage.
Once those are all painted, set them aside to dry.
Next, use the color Honky Tonk Red to paint the watermelon slice and let dry.
Then, use the color whitecap to pain the smaller rind.
And the color Evergreen to paint the larger outside rind.
As you can see, you now have all the pieces you need for your watermelon!
Once all of your painted pieces are dry, use super glue to assemble the door hanger. At this point, I decided to not add the white portion of the rind because the base filled that portion in nicely.
PRO TIP: Use the exterior portion of the wood letter cutouts to help lineup your letters when attaching them to the door hanger.
Once everything is in place and dry, this is what your cutout will look like.
I decided to add little more texture at this point!
So, I grabbed an old Chalk Couture Christmas Tree Pattern Transfer and my Pistachio Chalkology Paste.
This transfer pattern is just like our current Country Plaid Transfer, so that would work as well.
Feel free to use any transfer or stencil of your choice! You can also totally omit the pattern and only use paint.
To finish everything off, attach a piece of twin for hanging and a bow for embellishment!
