DIY Merry Christmas Door Hanger + Vinyl Blog Hop and Giveaway

Disclosure: The giveaway is sponsored by Silhouette, Craftsy and Persia Lou.

If you're like me, chances are you've been preparing for the holidays - I created this Merry Christmas door hanger to hang outside our little apartment door to add a festive feel! Thanksgiving in Canada have come and gone, so I'm totally free to decorate as I please now :) And while Thanksgiving in the US is still more than a week away, it won't hurt to jumpstart on your DIY holiday decorating, don't ya think?

Don't forget to read on and join our giveaway for a Cameo 3, a collection of vinyl from Expressions Vinyl and the Silhouette Saavy: Venture into Vinyl Craftsy Class by Alexis from Persia Lou! Woohoo.

spray paint your surface

This DIY is so easy! First, find a fun shaped surface - I got this tin ornament shape last year at Michael's on clearance, but you can definitely find something similar or even create your own! Paint your surface - of course, spray painting is the easiest way, but you can definitely just brush paint on it. 

Weed your vinyl

Measure your surface and size your sentiment before cutting it out on your Silhouette. Once cut, weed the negative areas - I find using a Silhouette hook makes this job much much easier!

Attach vinyl onto the surface

Attach your weeded vinyl by transferring it on with some transfer paper. Cut off the excess on each side for the perfect fit.

Paper pine leaves

Cut out different Christmas themed elements - I used pine, some sprigs and even a 3d pinecone. Of course, you can take a shorter route and use Christmas decor you can buy to decorate your hanger. But I find this is much more fun!

Paper pine swag and 3d pinecone

Arrange your elements and glue them down using a hot glue gun, and you are done!
