Prepping my spring door hanger
This is such a cute little craft!
I grabbed by pink craft paint and painted the edges of my round sign, then I grabbed my white craft paint and painted my HOP wood cutout.
While this is drying, I grabbed my scrapbook paper, placed my round on top, drew around this with a pencil and then cut the circle.
Then I used a clean paint brush or foam brush and painted Mod Podge on one side of my wood round and added my scrapbook paper.
Gently smoothing the scrapbook paper to remove the bubbles and being care not to rip the thick paper.
When this was dry, I gently sanded around the edges to clean up the scrapbook paper that was hanging over.
Now for an extra touch, I mixed a tiny bit of pink craft paint with my white craft paint.
I added a little blush in a circle pattern with my paint brush, along the sides of the bunny face on my wood HOP cutout.

Once the HOP is dry, I had my bunny template printed off.
I had to adjust the size of mine a few times in the printer by decreasing the percentage.
Each printer is different, if you have trouble try searching YouTube and your brand of printer for instructions!
Next, I grabbed my tracing paper and pen or pencil and placed the tracing paper over my bunny template and started tracing.
I liked using tracing paper, because I could trace my bunny face onto it and then I could somewhat see through to my wood HOP cutout when placing the design on there.
Once I traced with the bunny design with pen or pencil, I then used a small piece of tape and placed this onto my HOP wood cutout to tack this down.
When I had this where I wanted it, I slid the graphite paper underneath and used a pen or pencil and traced over the design again.
With the design taped down, you can carefully peak underneath to make sure your leaving an impression on your wood HOP cutout.
When the image is traced, remove the graphite and tracing paper.
Then I grabbed my fine detail brush OR fine tipped permanent marker and either painted or drew over the details of the bunny face.
When my hand is shaky, I go for the permanent marker!
Making my Spring messy Bow
I love adding my messy bows to my crafts whenever I can!

What’s so nice about messy bows, you can use ribbons or leftover fabric from other crafts!
Now for the bunny tiara?
I grabbed my faux flower and pulled three smaller petals of and hot glued them above the bunny’s forehead.
Assembling my Spring Door Hanger
Finally, I grabbed my E6000 glue and started applying this across the backside of my HOP wood cutout.
Then I added a little hot glue also and placed this onto my wood round.
Next I added my Messy Bow with a little hot glue on the back and applied.
Hanging my Spring Door Hanger
I love using 3M command strips to hang my lightweight wall decor.
But you can always use left over strips of fabric for a makeshift hanger by stapling them on the backside if you wish.
That is it! Make sure to check out my video below!
