Valentine Painted Door Hanger

I am not sure why, but the first couple of weeks of 2017 were very stressful/crazy/hectic! I was in serious need of a little craft therapy! I pulled out a wooden cutout and did some painting.

My bare wood cutout.
I usually have the finished product in mind before I start, but this one I went back and forth. I couldn't decide  between making the hearts look like candy Conversation Hearts or using a Bible verse. So, I painted and and designed my hearts in Silhouette Design Studio both ways before making my final choice. 
Painted and waiting for me to make up my mind.

I finally picked a Bible verse and cut it from black vinyl and applied it to my hanger.
All done!
I used acrylic paint from Walmart and the scripture file came from the Silhouette Store-->HERE The pink heart ribbon is from Joann Fabrics.
Thanks for stopping by!
Until later~

Owl painted door hanger

This is what I started with, Two owls sitting on a branch. I immediately thought of hubby and me when I saw this and knew that I wanted to add our initials to the heart. The wood is different than the other hangers I have painted and soaked up the paint quite a bit. I just needed to use 2 coats of  some of the colors. This is what I ended up with-

Aren't we cute! LOL I think this hanger would be good for Valentine's Day but I am going to find a spot in the house to hang it once it comes off of the door.
I do have another Valentine Hanger to share next time, and I am working on wood cutouts for March.
Thank you for stopping by!
Until later~

Birthday Cupcake Door Hanger

I had the big idea to make another door hanger, one I could use for each of our birthdays. With 6 people in our family it would get lots of use, right? Well, I started painting it after the new year in hopes to get it done in time for our first birthday of the year on January 9th. I didn't have the vinyl I needed for the words, so it didn't make it to the door. (I really wasn't too disappointed because it was my birthday. LOL) Now that I have added my vinyl sentiment, my cupcake is hanging on our door to celebrate hubby's birthday this week. I know each of the kids will be so happy to see the cupcake for each of their birthdays!!
I found my unfinished wood blank on Ebay, at my favorite craft shop-> Unfinished Wood Cupcake 

Just getting started. Again I forgot to get a picture before I started painting.

Finished and hanging on our door-
I painted the wooden shape with acrylic paints. The "Happy Birthday" is from the Silhouette store, cut with my Cameo using outdoor vinyl. I used a staple gun to attach my ribbon for hanging.
Now I am working on the ones for next month! (Yes, I am loving wooden door hangers and painting them!)
Thanks for stopping by!
Until later~
