Simple Door Decor

Reversible Round Door Hanger

Your front door – it is the first impression of your Home and Hospitality. Many strive to make it as inviting as possible for their guests, so front door decor has become very important and finding that perfect way to convey this can be a fun process!

There is such a trend right now … especially in the South … for wooden Door Hangers! They come in all shapes and sizes and are more than likely seasonal! This way it can be changed throughout the year for a continuous fresh look! These door hangers can be purchased or self-made and paint-your-own door hanger parties have been growing in popularity over the past few years!

Well today I am going to talk about a VERY EASY and SIMPLE door hanger that I do over and over! I stumbled upon this easy concept, by accident, as I was looking for a way to decorate my front doors – a simple Round Reversible door hanger! The perfect Front Door Decor – and this can be put together in one afternoon!

I have been talking a lot lately about my ‘Canton, Texas Trade Days haul’ from awhile back, and while there, I did find a vendor that sold unfinished wood figures in ALL shapes and sizes! I wish I would have taken a picture of table after table of designs! After looking through all of them, I really decided that I desired a more simple look – round. I visualized these {for my front doors} to be painted white for a pop against my already “statement making” front doors and then I could add either inspirational or welcoming words to decorate.

So here is the step-by-step that I followed…

I started out by staining both wood circles with Miniwax Wood Finish Stain in Espresso.

These red Painter’s Pyramids are wonderful for projects like this where you are staining (or painting) both sides!

I then chose to dry brush paint them white with plain latex Ultra White paint for a distressed look!

And used my Cricut to cut the vinyl for the words! I decided to do vinyl as opposed to a stencil because the wood was very porous and the paint was bleeding.

If the wood was smoother, I would have used my Cricut to cut the words as a stencil and simply paint the words on that way!

After that, I drilled 2 holes in the top of the circle and used thick jute rope (that I had already) to make a hanging loop.

In order to make the bow work for both sides, it was important that each end of the rope was inserted in the opposite side of the board. I then tied each side securely. This way the bow could easily be slid from side to side – making it reversible.

So when I realized how easy these were, I started to make a few just to put in my booth to decorate the walls ( and to sell! :)).

So, I headed to Lowe’s and grabbed a piece of plywood and shoved it in my tiny car! LOL!

I also got an amazing new tool attachment to help with this process – a Milescraft Circle Guide Kit! It attaches to your Router and can cut circles from 1 1/2″ – 52″, quickly and easily … once you figure out how to get it attached to your router! 😉

With Super Dad’s help, we were able to knock out cutting circles in no time!

And then I followed the same step-by-step process: Stain, Paint, Words, Loop and Bow!

I set up an ‘assembly line’ to be most efficient! 😊

I even changed it up a bit, and did a stripe option!
