It’s DIY Friday again! Can you believe how close it is to Christmas? (7 more Fridays by the way, no one is counting here!) This time of year always seems to creep up on us, don’t you think? Now, I am all about waiting until Thanksgiving is over to do anything Christmas related, but I can still start to think about my Christmas decor for this season. I love the preparation for Christmas, it’s literally the best time of the year. Growing up I remember spending a day listening to Christmas music and decorating the whole house with all our Christmas decor goodies! (it’s funny how childhood memories start to flow back into your life once you become a mom!) As I was thinking about last years Christmas decor items that I have, I knew I needed to buy something to hang on our front door.
So, this Friday I decided to do it myself and make one instead of buying one. Did I listen to Christmas music while crafting you might ask? The answer is no (I’m very strict with myself about this!) Instead I had a glass of wine and watched Modern Family (anyone else a fan of that show?) Of course this was all once Johnny was down for the night. It was a much needed my time! Follow along as I guide you through the steps of how to make your own personalized Christmas door hanger. (might I add I purchased most items at the Dollar Tree!)
Personalized Christmas Door Hanger
**Biggest tip, do not glue anything down until you have everything arranged to your liking! Also, you can use floral wire if the hot glue is not enough for your items to securely attach to the ribbon.
1.Cut the ribbon so that it’s at least 2 feet long
2. gather your flowers and arrange it to your liking
3. then wrap your flowers in burlap, make sure to hot glue the burlap so it’s secure
4. use the twine trim to tie a bow around it
5. arrange the bouquet along with the Christmas ornament onto your ribbon (make sure to cut off the hook/string)
6. hot glue all pieces onto the ribbon (don’t hold back on the glue either, more is better!)
**TIP- if it seems like the hot glue is not enough for it to stay use floral wire for added secured attachment.
7. to make the hanger cut a smaller picece of the ribbon
8. take the two ends and cross them together so that they meet and hot glue
9. hot glue the piece to the back of the main ribbon (make sure to let the glue dry before you hang anything)
That’s it! Hang it on your front door or you can even find a place for it inside, it’s so versatile! PLUS you can personlize it to whatever style meets your home decor!
P.S. Be on the look out for DIY homemade candles that you can give friends and coworkers for the holidays!
