DIY St. Patrick’s Day Burlap Door Hanger

Have you started to see green?  We have transitioned from Valentine’s day to St. Patrick’s day just like that!  Are you ready for the green holiday?  I made a St. Patrick’s burlap door hanger to help get in the mood.  It was super easy and I’m going to show you how to make your own today!

To make your own door hanger, you will need:

  • 1 yard of burlap
  • green paint of your choice
  • glue gun
  • newspaper
  • floral wire
  • ribbon
  • scissors

To start, cut your burlap into two identical clover shapes.  Make one clover a few inches longer around the edges so that you can glue it together easier.

Paint your smaller clover however you would like.  You need two layers of paint.  I painted first layer Kelly green and then used an apple green on top, but feel free to use whatever green paint you would like.  Let the paint dry for about an hour or two.

Next, place a layer of hot glue around the edge of the slightly larger clover.  Using a small piece of excess burlap, press the top part onto the glue.  Do this around 3 of the four clover leaves.  Let it dry for a few minutes and then stuff it with your newspaper.  Crumble it up a bit before you stuff it inside.  Glue the last edge closed.

Once you have the clover stuff, add a little stem to the bottom.  Twist some floral wire into a half circle and glue it to the back of your door hanger.  Add a little ribbon to the top and you’re done!  You are the proud owner of a new St. Patrick’s burlap door hanger!  The last step is to proudly place it on your door and let your Irish pride show.

Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s day?  How do you decorate for the holiday?
