Doorknob Accessories

I found something on the net and it's really cute ... another thing I can add to my to-do list ... wonder when I will be able to finish even one? So hard to be a working mom ... for those who do have the time ... enjoy ...

Door Knob Accessories
  • Wooden door hanger or two pieces of chipboard and the template available here.
  • Mod Podge or other decoupage medium
  • Patterned paper
  • Scrapbooking embellishments
  • Acrylic paint
  • Sand paper
  • Corner rounder
  • Diamond Glaze or other strong adhesive
Pre-made Wooden Door Hanger:
  • You can purchase a pre-made wooden door hanger at most large craft stores.
  • Remove all stickers from the door hanger and lightly sand the surfaces.
Chipboard Door Hanger:
  • Download and print the template from the link above.
  • Cut the template out, including the center circle.
  • Trace the shape onto two pieces of chipboard and cut out.
  • Glue the two pieces of chipboard together, and allow to dry thoroughly.
  1. Paint a base coat color on the hanger, paying close attention to all edges. Allow to dry.

  2. Measure the width and length of your door hanger, and subtract a 1/4 of an inch from each measurement. Using those measurements, cut two of the template from patterned paper, to cover the front and back. Be sure to cut out the hole on each piece, as well.

  3. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge and adhere the paper to the hanger. Allow to dry completely.
  4. As each layer dries, add an additional layer of paper, as desired, using a thin coat of Mod Podge, and allow to dry.

  5. Once all paper layers are dry, embellish with stickers and rub-ons as desired.

  6. Seal the entire project with two thin coats of Mod Podge. Allow the first coat to dry before adding the second. Allow to dry before continuing.

  7. Add ribbons, fibers and three-dimensional embellishments with Diamond Glaze.

  8. Allow entire project to dry overnight before hanging on your doorknob.
