For the Gardener: A Watering Can Arrangement
Have a green thumb? Flaunt it! Create a fresh or faux flower arrangement in a small watering can. Add garden tools and gloves for extra flair.
- If using a metal can, felt dots on the back will protect your door from scrapes.
- Don’t have a metal can? Try a rain boot instead!
- Print out a gardening quote and frame it to finish your arrangement.
For the Fisherman: An A-lure-ing Door Hanger!
Fishing for some originality? Raid the tackle box! Use a reel, colorful lures and perhaps a vintage-style fishing pole.
- Heavy gauge wire is necessary to attach heavier items like fishing poles and equipment together.
- The more vintage, the better. This is a great way to display older pieces that no longer get used.
- Paint a “Gone Fishing” sign using scrap lumber or an old shingle.
For the Cook: A Front Door Recipe
Here’s a recipe for the perfect front door: 1 apron, 2 to 3 kitchen gadgets. Mix with imagination and enjoy! Use wire to run through the apron seams and create a dimensional effect.
- Thread a wire through the top apron seams to give it dimension and structure.
- Write out your favorite recipe and pin it to the apron! Maybe you can write several copies and encourage visitors to take a recipe.
- Use kitchen tools that are okay to get worn. The outside elements will give them some extra wear and tear.
- Safety pins are great for attaching lighter items like an oven mitt or dish towel.
For the Handyman: You Can Build It, Yes You Can!
Craft a beautiful door dedicated to hard work! Use a tool belt and older tools for a centerpiece. A fun sign is always the perfect finishing touch.
- This hanger can get heavy. Drill pieces into a plywood back for stability.
- Grab tools of any and all kinds. Play around with the arrangement.
- For a kid-focused door, use a kids tool set and tool belt.
