I know most of us do not decorate for St. Patrick’s Day, but as easy and inexpensive as these seasonal door hangers are, I decided to add a little green to our front door. For about $5, it can’t be beat!
Shamrock Door Hanger
1 sheet foam board (20″x30″)
Electric Knife or Exacto Knife
Circle template and pencil (use a cup!)
Paint (Folk Art Yellow Citron shown)
Awl or small screwdriver (to pierce hole)
Assorted ribbon/jute/burlap (for hanger)
I printed off this shamrock template. The way I traced and enlarged the shamrock to the desired size on the foam board is low-class. I literally pressed as I traced the outline of one leaf in three positions to make the clover, leaving a slight imprint on the foamboard. Then, I lightly penciled a few inches out from the imprint to the size shamrock I wanted. Using an electric knife that is 180 years old (but works like a dream to cut foam), I cut it out and flipped it to the clean side. Voila!
My little assistant…with hair everywhere and an unmade bed in the background. Just keepin’ it real.
I did not take photos of the next step, but I simply used a plastic cup top to trace circles onto the foam board, then painted them with two coats of Yellow Citron.
Next, pierce a hole for the hanger. *Be sure to test the spot before creating the hole to be sure it hangs at the angle you prefer.
Tie a simple loop/knot to make the hanger with jute or other ribbon.
Tie assorted ribbon, burlap, etc to embellish the hanger, and you are finished!
