DIY Door Hanger by 3 Little Greenwoods

Door Hangers are simply adorable! They can be used to decorate any door. A door hanger can be personalized to suit your entrance door, kids’ room door, kitchen door, office room door and any other door where you would like to add a personal touch. While there are several door hangers and door decors available on the market, you can also opt to make one on your own if you are inclined into handcraft. If that is your passion, get started with making your own personalized door hanger right away!

Door hangers are available in different types of materials. Wood, plastic, fabric, wool, foam board, etc. You can choose to work on any material you are most comfortable with and the one that you think would suit the design or pattern best. Today, we are going to work using the simplest material that is easy to work on- white core foam board or thermocol.

You will need:

The pattern we are going to work on today is a pencil design for kids’ room or teacher’s room. For that you will need:

  • Thermocol board (required size for your pattern)
  • Craft knife
  • Measuring tape or yardstick
  • 1” masking tape
  • Yellow spray paint
  • Craft paints


Cut out the required size of thermocol for the pencil door hanger. If half of the board would suffice you can cut the board into half. Cut it out in the shape of a pencil. To get the shape and size right, take the help of the yardstick and craft knife. It is common to have rough edges when you cut into thermocol. To settle this use, you can use the 1” masking tape. Run it along the entire length of the pencil motif and paste it to mask or cover the rough border.

Now you can spray paint the entire pencil. Yellow is what we use here (to add a touch of brightness), you can use any colour you prefer. Once it is completely dry, start to add the detailing to your pencil. An eraser to the pencil, the metal band, lead tip, etc. You can do all this mildly using a pencil. Now, more of painting work. Paint the eraser pink, the metal band silver or gray, etc. Once you are done with the painting, add the name of the person in the body of the pencil. You can add a ribbon to the pencil or any other décor if you would like. And, you are done! Try different designs and patterns of your interest.

DIY Gnome Doors

Posted by on Mar 6, 2016 in Home Improvement | Comments Off on DIY Gnome Doors

Gnome doors are in! (They have always been famous, haven’t they?). Adding a little bit of fun and an essence of magic to the yard or garden, gnomes have been famous. How interesting would it be if you could just add a door for the garden gnome statutes or model that you have in your garden? Even if you do not have any model, it is still completely okay to have a small cute door for the fairytale characters at the base of a tree or along the fence. The best part here, you can make your very own gnome door! Learn how to make gnome doors at home with simple materials and lots of creativity. Let’s get started.

You will need:

  • Wood plank (a small portion of it)
  • Wood strips
  • A cabinet’s knob or a cupboard’s knob
  • Acrylic paints
  • Wood stain
  • Wood glue
  • A knife (that can cut through the plank you’ve chosen)
  • Polyurethane
  • And door decors you may like to add

How to get this done?

What shape do you want your door to be in? A rectangle, square or oval? Get fixed with the shape in your mind and cut the piece of wood that you have into that shape. To make things easier, if your plank is proper wood and you aren’t equipped to cut it, get it cut at the hardware store. Use can use the thinner wood strips to arrange on the door like planks- this will give a more antique and natural look for your gnome door. Cut them as well now, maybe into few equal inches wide and place them on the door base to check if you have the measurements right.

The pattern for your door entirely depends on your creativity. If you prefer a plain door, then plain it is! If you want to attach any door decors on the door, position them as well now before you get started with the painting.

A brown door leaning against the tree is more natural, but if you prefer a green one, again it is all yours (or the gnome’s)! Let’s say we go with a classic brown door with strips or planks on it for demonstration. For this, you can paint the basal plank black using acrylic paints. Allow it to dry thoroughly. Position the wood planks that you have over the base now. To make it more natural looking, you can leave some gap between the planks deliberately. Just a little gap, hence, the black underneath will stand out and appear like an antique real door.

Got the positioning right? Wonderful. Now you can glue the planks using wood glue. Leave it undisturbed to dry. After it is dry, you can paint the door. Brown, green, white, with patterns, anything you wish. If you are settling for brown, stain the wood with a simple brown. Evenly brush the stain on and quickly wipe dry. Make sure that you have all spots covered on the door with the brown.

You are almost done! Drill a hole where you want your door knob to go. Fix the cabinet hardware there. If there are any other detailing that you want to drill in, now is the time. Use some polyurethane over the door as a sealant. Just to add a little sheen or gloss to the door. Now all you got to do- find the right spot to leave the door.

Garden decors have gnome door on trees, carving on tree stumps, miniature tree houses and many creative ideas. You can test on each one of them that will suit your liking. For a start, you can check this out!
