I’ve put together a step by step tutorial for my newest Winter Door Hanger. In fact, it’s so new you get to see me paint it for the first time!! I was inspired by those old antique snow sleds when I designed the Vintage Sled Door Hanger. The sight of them fill me with all the warm fuzzies of the season.
Bonus: a Vintage Sled Door Hanger is the perfect backdrop
Vintage Sled Door Hanger
- 3 brushes, 2″, 1″, 3/4″ water container for your brushes, paper plate, and paper towels.
- Wood Cutouts
- Paint (see list below)
- small fan for drying (optional)
- E6000 glue
- Rustoleum Crystal Clear Enamel or Minwax Polycrylic to seal and make it glossy (optional)
- Bow & Twine for hanging
Paint used for this project:
- Bungalow 47 Paint colors: Fire Pit, Front Door Red
- Acrylic Paint: Titanium White, Mars Black
While these dry, move on to the letter and rails. I want red accents so I choose Front Door Red. I paint the edges of my pieces first, then cover the front. You do not have to paint the back of the letter because it will be on top of the sled. I like a nice rich red so I suggest two thin coats of paint.
Take the time to paint it ALL. This will give your door hanger a finished look. Again two thin coats is best for red paints.
See how I paint all the pieces of the
Vintage Sled Door Hanger!
To seal it, I use Rustoleum Crystal Clear Enamel. I spray each piece separately and let them dry for 30-45 min each. You want to do this outside or in a well ventilated area.
This is the perfect time to get your friends together, grab some DIY Creative Kits & snacks and have a craft night all from the comfort of your home!
Take lots of pictures and share them with me on my Facebook Page!! I would love to see what you create.
