DIY St. Patrick's Day Door Hanger - No SEW!!!




I have something super easy for you right here! And for those of you that don't sew, don't worry, no sewing needed!!! Just grab your glue gun, tacky glue or fabric glue!!! 


I have been seeing those cute burlap door hangers all over the place. Owls, hearts, you name it, but I didn't want to pay a ton of money for them. That's when I decided to try it myself. SO glad I did!!!


WHAT I USED

1 1/2 yards of printed burlap
Green ribbon
Gold ribbon
Hot glue gun
Poly fill 
Paper bag to make the pattern



Step 1





I used a paper bag (think Kroger) and cut out a heart shape.


Step 2



Then I placed the heart on another paper bag and traced around it. 
If I did this again, I think I would move the top heart up a bit more just for more definition.

Anyway...

Then cut out your pattern.

Cut 2 pieces from the burlap.


Steps 3 and 4




With a wrong side up, hot glue around the edges and place the other piece to it. Make sure to leave an opening at the bottom.

After the hot glue is dry, stuff it with poly fill or scraps or whatever you like.


Step 5





Cut your ribbons to whatever length you like and glue one end inside the clover. 

Glue the opening closed.


Step 6



Hot glue the gold ribbon to the back.
Now if I had been thinking properly, I would have glued this to the inside of the darn thing. My mind rarely works properly...... 


ALL DONE!!!!!!!






Let me know what you think!!!!!

I think I might have to make some more of these burlap door hangers! ;) The possibilities are endless!!!

I will have another St Patrick's Day home decor post coming up soon! A table runner and table decor! :D

OH! Before I forget!! I finished the other Japanese Knot Bag!!!





I really like the way it turned out! :D And my customer can't wait to get them! YAY!!!!!


HAVE FUN CRAFTING!!!!!!!

  4. That door hanger looks nice and easy. I guess I need to go shop for some burlap. Although I do have a cool, burlap rice bag. Hmmm.

    1. Thank you!!!
      Y'know, it really could be done without one, either with fabric glue or tacky glue. It would just take longer to dry.
