Is my Oklahoma and Texas showing?
I get tired of using the same opening and closing remarks in emails, but my go-to’s are “howdy” for an opening and “kind regards” for a closing. Howdy is one of those southern colloquialisms that I’ve always embraced – there’s just something playful and welcoming about it. Howdy immediately brings to mind thoughts of sweet tea and warm embraces. Maybe I’m thinking about it a little too much, but that welcoming feeling is what I was going for with these DIY door hangers:
From the warm wood to the playful stripes these DIY door hangers are the perfect greeting for your front door! They’are simple to cut out, and since they are short/straight cuts they are good practice for using a scroll saw!
DIY Door Hangers
I enlarged a tag I found in the Cricut Design Studio, and cut it with my Cricut so I could easily trace it on my 1/4 inch plywood for these wooden door hangers. After the tags were traced, I cut using my Ryobi scroll saw. Once they are cut, sand the edges and stain the wood. Last, apply a fun saying cut from outdoor vinyl. You can use my “HOWDY Y’ALL” found HERE or clicking below:
Also: are you as obsessed with my royal blue front door as I am!? I did it a few months ago using “Morning Glory” from the DecoArt Americana Decor Outdoor Living line of paint. They now have a special line of paint just for front doors! Check out their new “Curb Appeal” line.
