Valentine's Day Painted Door Hangers
It’s hard to believe that it’s already several weeks into the new year! But that means it is time to start getting out your Valentine’s Day decor, of course. So I wanted to show you some of my favorite Valentine painted door hangers. These are so cute and fun, and I’ve included some video tutorials below so that you can DIY them, too!
For each door hanger, I’ll post a link to my shop where you’ll find a wooden blank that you can order and have shipped to your house, ready to paint. Or, a printable template and digital cut file that you can use with PDF, SVG, etc to cut your own door hanger right at home! (Not sure what the difference is between them? Check out my recent blog post that explains all about it!)
And, don’t forget that in my shop, you can choose the size! I’m showing most of these as full-size door hangers, but you can also purchase them in smaller sizes that are perfectly sized as sign accents or wreath attachments! You can see how I used one of them on a porch welcome sign to get an idea of how versatile they can be.
"Love You a Llama" Valentine's Day Door Hanger
How sweet is this colorful llama? It was a lot of fun to paint. Llamas are so trendy right now, plus this door hanger is different from so many other ones you see! You’ll definitely get compliments if you hang this one on your front door.
This is one design that I painted together with my Painter’s Clubhouse members. We played around with some of the colors and experimented with the technique on the fur to give him some fluffy definition.
If you’d “love” to DIY your own llama door hanger (pun intended!), grab the ready-to-paint blank or the printable template and digital cut file right from my shop.
Box of Chocolates Heart Door Hanger
Let’s face it – you can’t think about Valentine’s Day without thinking about chocolate! And this sweet heart-shaped box of candy is going to look great on your front door, or maybe even on your kitchen wall or living room mantel!
I painted this one live on my facebook page, so make sure you check out the video and follow along! I’ll show you how to create the lace-inspired edges and the details on each piece of candy.
In the video, I started mine by using a printable template. But I also offer this design as an etched, ready-to-paint blank. That means that you can see exactly where to paint each chocolate, and it’s as easy as those “paint by numbers” projects that you used to do as a kid!
They’re both available for you in my shop. Find the etched blank right here, and the digital cut file and printable template right here. And take a look at the video tutorial below, too!
Painted Valentine's Hearts
I wanted to show you an example of what a difference your colors and technique can make when you’re painting door hangers. So here are two Valentine’s Day hearts that I painted using the same basic heart shape cut into the wood. But look at how different they look!
The first one is floral, sweet and romantic, with soft pinks, green, and blue, and gorgeous roses.
The second one is fun and sassy, with a bold pink and black leopard print and gold paint accents. It really stands out!
So don’t be afraid to play around with different colors and patterns to fit your mood and decor! The same basic door hanger design can have a whole new look just with a few changes.
You can create your own unique Valentine heart by grabbing the ready-to-paint blank or the printable template and digital cut file here. It’s actually the same printable template as the box of chocolates, so you can create several designs from one basic design!
I painted both of these live on my facebook page, too. Head over to watch them and get the full video tutorial and see how I painted with different techniques. Check out the floral roses heart here, and the bold leopard print heart here!
And like I mentioned, I actually painted these in a smaller size than a door hanger. I wanted to use them as an accent piece for a painted “Welcome” sign on my front porch. Look at how nicely it turned out! Plus I can change out the accent piece for each season and celebration.
"Be Mine" Valentine's Day Pick Up Truck Door
Everyone loves these vintage pick-up truck designs all year long! They’re versatile for every season and holiday and they have such a great nostalgic, retro vibe. You can see that I offer quite a view variations of this design in my shop. For example, here’s one that I posted for Christmas, and another one that I made with pumpkins for fall.
Well, this truck is full of Valentine’s hearts just in time for February! I liked using the blue polka dots on the truck for a nice contrast with the red and pink valentines. And tied the whole design together with a fluffy bow!
If you want to DIY this one, it’s available as an etched blank, ready-to-paint, or a printable template and digital cut file. Or if you’re eager to get this one on your front door, you can even buy one that I’ve already painted that’s ready to hang up!
This is another design that I painted live on facebook, so you can check out the full video tutorial if you want to see exactly how I did mine:
