Winter DIY Painted Door Hangers
Not sure what door hangers you should paint now to get ready for the rest of winter, once Christmas is over and your holiday decor is finished? Take a look at some of my favorite winter themed painted door hangers that can brighten your door for the rest of the season!
Is it just me, or January one of the hardest times to decorate?? We’re past all the bright lights and warm colors of our Christmas and seasonal decor. The tree is down, the garland and greenery are dried and brown (or packed away for the next year), and the rooms all feel a bit cold and empty. The weather outside is bleak and dreary, and spring still seems a long way away.
Well, worry no more! Here are some warm, cozy and whimsical DIY designs that are sure to bring a smile and warm the hearts of your guests, even on a cold winter’s night!
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 these here as full-size door hangers, but you can also purchase them in smaller sizes that are perfectly sized as sign accents or wreath attachments!
"LOVE" Snowflake Door Hanger
These “LOVE” designs are super popular for all different themes and seasons. (Just take a look at all of the design options that you can choose like this! I have some that I’ve highlighted in other blog posts, too).
Well, this wintery snow version is perfect for your post-holiday blahs! You have the opportunity to choose a different color and pattern for each letter. And doesn’t this winter color palette remind you of Frozen?!? This is a painted design that would be a perfect gift or bedroom wall decor piece for your favorite Anna and Elsa fan!
Whimsical Snowmen Door Hanger Designs
Look at these two snow men! This first sweet, cuddly snowman is one of my newest door hanger designs. His polka dot scarf and jaunty cap are a warm welcome to your front porch decor! If you follow me on Facebook, you might remember when I recently painted this one during a facebook live video!
You can find this blank here in my shop, and the digital template and cut file right here. No time to DIY? I’m also selling some of these that I’ve painted myself that can be shipped right to your door, ready to hang and enjoy.
And this second snowman is also a cutie! It’s a nice close-up so you can really add some small pattern details to his winter hat! Anytime that you can use bright colors in your winter decor, go for it!
You can find this snowman’s printable template and digital cut file, so you can cut your own door hanger at home and get started right away. Or, grab the ready-to-paint wooden blank and all you have to worry about are the painted details!
Tip: If you’re not ready to freehand the details of the snowman’s face, take a look at my Snowman Face stencil that makes it easy even for a beginner!
Winter Scene Door Hanger With Cardinals
I tend to paint a lot of fun, whimsical designs. I like bright colors and cute styles!
But sometimes you really want a more classic, traditional style. And this lovely winter scene fits the bill!
These friendly cardinals are painted right onto a “classic frame” door hanger. So you could paint any scene or style that strikes your fancy, all with a single template!
Cup of Hot Cocoa Door Hanger
This hot cocoa mug is another brand new design and it’s already getting popular with some of my facebook followers! You can easily customize this one to your decor by matching your color scheme, too.
And as a bonus, make sure that you take a look at this recent facebook live video. You can watch me paint this hot chocolate door hanger on my facebook page, including some tips about painting with shading:
