Welcome to our Deck the Home Blog Hop! I’m so excited to have been invited to join 25 other amazingly talented bloggers to bring you some cool projects to inspire you to get crafty this season. First up I’m going to show you how I made this Monogram Door Hanger and all the steps you need to make one yourself.
I made mine for Christmas but you could make it generic or for any holiday you want. After I’m done showing you how I made mine, be sure to check out all the 26 projects linked up at the bottom of this post. You won’t be disappointed 🙂
I’m not sure if this is a door hanger or a wreath. Wreaths are traditionally round but I love the unexpected shape using an old picture frame so I’ll call it a door hanger.
Either way I love making “wreaths” to jazz up our decor. Sometimes they get hung on the front door, like the first wreath I shared on this blog. Or the Seasonal Wreath I made that was easy to update seasonally. And sometimes I make them and leave them hanging on the Murphy Bed in the spare room where I work so I can enjoy them all day long.

Monogram Door Hanger Supplies
You can make your own monogram door hanger very easily in an afternoon. The longest part is waiting for the paint to dry LOL
- Start by painting your picture frame with the black craft paint
- When the paint is dry completely dry-brush on some metallic gold craft paint to get your desired effect. You really want the brush with almost no paint or you’ll completely cover the black beneath it.
- Next paint your MDF Letter with white craft paint.
- While the paint is still wet sprinkle heavily with white glitter.
- Press the glitter into paint with a piece of wax paper then tip and shake off excess and let dry.
Assemble Monogram Door Hanger
I’m glad I spent a few minutes to think about how this would go together. Since the letter will hang from the top of the frame it would be awkward to attach once I completed the front.
- Turn the frame on the face and then using lengths of ribbon (one or two depending on your letter) hot glue the ribbon first to the frame and then to the letter.
With the letter attached to the frame it’s time to get creative on the spray that will go on the front of the frame at the bottom left. For my monogram door hanger I used two clip-on poinsettia ornaments/picks and two curly-q picks, and some mini ornaments.
- Start by cutting the white poinsettia in half and attaching 3 large leaves to the left and bottom of the frame with hot glue.
- Do the same with the gold poinsettia leaves spaced about 1″ lower.
The picks I bought had those little clips above attached. The same were on the curly-q picks.
- I’m sorry I forgot to take a picture while adding the curly-q picks but I used two of those and hot glued them to the frame over the gold leaves.
- Lastly add the mini ornaments to the frame with hot glue into the nooks and crannies of the curly-q picks and the bottom left corner of the frame.
All that’s left is to add some ribbon for hanging and you’re all done.
I love the glitter on the letter and the shimmer of the frame with that metallic gold paint.
I’m sort of obsessed with how the ornaments, the poinsettias, and the curly-q’s all came together ?
My first attempt at a monogram door hanger turned out better than I pictured it in my head. How would you make yours? Would you be inspired by what I did or go in a different direction?
Pin it for later!
This was fun and I can’t wait to show you my project next Monday. And please don’t forget to check out all the other creative bloggers’ projects below.
