DIY Patriotic Metal Door Hanger

Let’s make-over this Hobby Lobby clearance find just in time for Memorial Day! I picked up some flowers at Walmart for under $1.00 a bunch and I’ll also use this sweet Dollar Tree napkin too to create a DIY patriotic metal door hanger!

clearance contained painted white

First off, I’ll paint the container white using my Waverly chalk paint since I’ll be decoupaging the napkin onto the surface. Once the paint is completely dry, add Mod Podge and “pounce” the napkin onto the container. Don’t forget to separate the two-ply napkin and apply only the top printed ply.

Allow the napkin to dry down after adhering with the Mod Podge and then use a file or sanding pad to remove excess napkin around the edges.

Next, stuff two of the Dollar Tree floral blocks down into the container. You can attach with glue if you’d like, I just pushed my down and they fit snuggly.

Now I’m ready to hot glue Spanish moss around the edges and then insert the flowers. I did darken my flowers down by adding wax to them, just like I did to the container. I also painted a half wood bead turquoise and added to the center of the white flowers.
