various projects created using a door hanger template

Wood Block Sign

This wood block sign was the first of many projects I did showing how to use a template. I just grabbed a piece of scrap wood and used the 6 inch PDF template from my shop. This wooden sign would be so cute on a side table, mantle, shelf, or tiered tray. You can find the step-by-step tutorial for this wood block sign on my blog.

Tiered Tray Decor

The Puppy Love template was used to create this adorable puppy love tiered tray decor. I picked up the mini pallet used for the background for this design from the Dollar Tree and just painted it white. I love finding crafting supplies at the Dollar Tree and turning them into adorable pieces like this. If you want to recreate this Puppy Love Tiered Tray Decor yourself, you can read the tutorial on my blog.

Acrylic Frame Decor

For this project where I used the Faith Can Move Mountains template. It might be one of my favorites! It looks like a painted window and will look so pretty hanging on the wall. I got the acrylic frame from Hobby Lobby for only $9.99. If you want to watch the replay or read how to recreate this acrylic frame decor for yourself, you can read my blog post, “Using a Template with an Acrylic Frame.”

Template Design on Wood

This DIY project was so fun! I had my doubts that it would work, but I saw a TikTok video using a printed image and Mod Podge to adhere it to wood. I don’t really like Mod Podge so I used cling wrap, a printed template, and parchment paper to achieve this look and I love it! You can read about how to transfer your template design to wood on my blog.

Paint on Canvas

I painted this Easter truck template on canvas and loved how simple using a template on canvas was. This would be great for kids who want to paint on canvas but would prefer some guidelines or a picture to paint. Just use the template and graphite paper to transfer the design to canvas and start painting. Read the step-by-step tutorial of how I painted on canvas with a template on my blog.

Garden Flag

How adorable is this Spring Truck template used on the garden flag? I loved the idea of using a template to customize a garden flag so much and this one was perfect for Spring. Find a template for summer, fall, and winter and change the flag out for every season. Find out what supplies you need and how to paint this for yourself on the blog!
