HOW TO MAKE A SPRING DOOR HANGER

You’ll be starting the decor project out using any circle Dollar Tree hanging sign. I happened to have a summer one on hand. The back side is the surface you’ll be working on.

STEP 1: PREP AND PAINT THE SURFACE

If needed, use sand paper to smooth the outer edge of the hanger. Mine needed smoothing. Make sure to wipe off dust afterwards.

Use a foam brush to apply 2 to 3 coats of white paint for a base coat. Use a hair dryer or heat gun to speed up the drying process

Next, paint 2 coats of yellow. I only did one coat in the area where the denim pocket would be attached.

STEP 2: MAKE THE DOTS

Give your spring door hanger a whimsical look by adding some dots!

I used a lighter yellow to make my dots. Buy the specific color or you can mix white and bright yellow, like I did, to make the color to match my flowers.

Use the end of a new pencil to make your dots. I didn’t apply dots where the pocket was going to be placed.

STEP 4: MOD PODGE THE DOOR HANGER

Apply one coat of Mod Podge using a foam paint brush.

STEP 3: PREPARE THE DENIM POCKET AND ATTACH

Use sharp scissors to trim around the pocket. My pocket came from thrift store jeans that I got on sale for $1.00.

Use hot glue to attach the pocket to the hanger. Don’t glue down the opening of the pocket.

STEP 5: CUT THE DOLLAR TREE FLOWER STEMS

A snips tool will cut through the plastic wire stems. Cut off several flower stems. You can cut them at different lengths as you’re placing them in your pocket

STEP 6: BEGIN THE FLOWER ARRANGEMENT

I didn’t glue the stems just in case I want to change the colors for a summer look.

Begin placing the flowers inside the pocket starting with taller stems. Then add medium heights and then shorter heights in front. Fluff as needed.

Add Medium Height Stems

Add the shortest height stems in the front. Now, the Dollar Tree floral arrangement looks nice and full at varying heights!

STEP 7: ADD A BOW

Tie a cute gingham bow and attach with hot glue. Dollar Tree carries gingham ribbon.

Didn’t this spring door hanger turn out so pretty? Dollar Tree DIY ideas are fun to create and can look just as good as store-bought home decor!
