Wow! Certainly, the most consistent thing about California weather is that it is rarely consistent. As I write this post, it is beginning to pour outside....which is such a contrast to my Parsimonious Décor Darling post on 1/24, during which, the temperature was well into the 80s. That tends to work as a double-edged sword, however....no fun if you have to run errands (and catch cold like I did), but perfect for crafting indoors!! Today's very overdue post will feature how to make a really easy door hanger just in time for Saint Valentine's Day. I hope you enjoy!
You will need:
One large poster board
Assorted rose stems, approximately 16 to make two hangers
Standard wire dry-cleaning hangers
A saucer or other small round object
Crafting scissors or plier tool
Industrial-strength hot glue gun and glue sticks
Begin by removing the paper from your wire hanger.
Stretch the hanger so that it resembles a quasi-triangle.
Place the hanger onto your poster board. Mark with a pencil.
Where you have marked, use the saucer to draw two overlapping circles.
The hanger should fit just inside the form.
I cut an additional amount away from the top of the heart to make it look more defined.
With an industrial-strength glue gun, bead glue over the top of the wire hanger. Hold it down long enough for it to cool.
Once glued down in an ample amount of places, add your flowers.
Add and scupt around the template until your hearts are completely filled in. I used three colors; lavender, pink, and red. You may opt to use a monochromatic color palette if you prefer a more refined look.
Use your crafting tool to close the hanger top.
Thread ribbon through the loop and create a bow.
Dot glue to hold in place.
Finally, I used the last coordinating color (lavender) to hang the ornament.
