You know those dollar store holiday plaques you see that look kind of plain – specifically the autumn or Thanksgiving ones? Well, you can dress them up in under 10 minutes to create a cute little door hanger. This is perfect for that side door with a screen on it (because it will fit between the screen door and the main door). It is so lightweight it makes for a great “grandma” craft – if a child touches it and it falls, it does not break. Or, if you are a teacher, it is a $6 classroom door project!
Dollar Store Craft: Easy Thanksgiving Door Hanger DIY
• We used hot glue on this project (that is the royal “we” as it was my niece’s idea and execution). If you prefer to use goop instead of hot glue: once you have glued everything put a large plain piece of paper or cardboard on to of the craft, and then a few books on top of that so it dries flat.
• I called this a “10-minute craft” but honestly? It took longer to gather the glue gun, plaque, and leaves than it did to put this together.
Dollar Store Craft: Easy Thanksgiving Door Hanger Materials:
• Small Plaque (12-13″)
• 5 leaves (8″)
• Glue Gun
• Hot Glue
Dollar Store Craft: Easy Thanksgiving Door Hanger Directions
• Arrange the leaves so they overlap, and lay well.
• Place your plaque on top of the leaves to see how it will look when finished (do not glue anything yet!)
• Remover the plaque, and set aside.
• Turn over the arranged leaves, and hot glue them together in place.
• Turn over glued together leaves.
• Replace plaque on the glued together leaves, and hot glue the plaque in place.
• Hang as desired.
