An easy and quick seasonal decor idea is to create a wooden door hanger. They are so unique, customizable to your taste, and a quick project!
Craft stores are my jam! I have been loving Michaels lately, mainly because they just remodeled the one near me so it’s so bright, organized, and beautiful! Click here to visit their website where you can purchase most of the supplies listed below. (Commissionable link)

- Wooden Board
- Craft Paint
- Stain (optional)
- Stencil (optional) I used my Cricut Explore 2 and Oramask vinyl to create the stencils used for this project.
- Florals of your choice
- Floral wire
- Wired Ribbon
- Sturdy ribbon for hook
- Staple gun and staples
Prep your board by lightly sanding it and staining or painting it.
Plan how you want the sign to look by laying out the ribbon, floral arrangement, and stencils the way you like. Begin with the stencil portion of the project, you can use a cutout or use your own handwriting.
If you choose to have a background color, paint it first, allow it to dry, then place your stencils down.
TIP: If you are afraid of the color bleeding onto your background color, paint the same color over your stencil first. This will allow the background color to fill in the air bubbles and your top coat will not be able to bleed.
Make a Bow
You can buy wired ribbon and make your own, or buy a pre-made bow. I searched “How to make a bow” in Youtube and there are so many options! You can even use multiple types of ribbon.
Here’s a fairly short video that was created by Michaels!
I like to staple the floral on first to ensure that the stems will be covered up by the bow.
Once your flowers have been stapled on the way you planned, and your bow is complete, you can staple it to the top center of your door hanger.
Add Final Touches
Finally, I stapled a thicker ribbon to the back of my board in two places to hang it up. Add any paint that may have scratched off and your DIY door hanger is ready to be hung for the neighborhood to adore!
