Even though I don’t want to do the whole pandemic thing over, it certainly wasn’t all bad. I took the opportunity to take a few art classes, start brush lettering again and I signed up to do something 3 times a month that I never had the time to do before. Make painted door hangers.
We’ve all seen the cute door hangers on Pinterest and on the doors of perfect houses in our neighborhood.
But taking the time to learn to use a jig saw and cut them out, then paint them, then seal and hang them?
Well, I just never seemed to find the time.
Then one day I saw Lisa Miller of Creative Canvas by you telling everyone about her new on-line classes and how to join her inner circle.
I had watched Lisa paint on-line many times, but never thought to join up and learn all things door hangers.
Then one day I thought, why not?
This cute Easter truck door hanger was one of the very first things we painted in our class.
I’ve enjoyed every second of being a member of her inner circle.
Every Thursday night at 8:00 CST I jump on facebook and watch a tutorial on how to paint the latest door hanger.
I’ve learned new skills, such as how to use a jig saw.
I’m feeling pretty confidant about cutting out the hangers.
There’s only one downside to making these cute door hangers.
I paint 3 a month.
I never thought about how many that would end up being over a years time.
And that’s only if I don’t go into the archives and download previous patterns.
Cause you know I can’t help myself if I see a super cute one.
I do have a solution though.
My friends and family are the proud ( or maybe the reluctant) recipients of door hangers!
You get a door hanger and you get a door hanger and you….
Well, you get the idea.
This is my latest door hanger that I finished just yesterday.
I LOVE it!
But most of all I love that I’ve learned a new form of art.
Proving that an old dog CAN learn new tricks.
And that painted door hangers aren’t that hard to make after all.
And it doesn’t hurt that the door hangers are super cute either…
Until next time….
IF YOU LOVE IT, BE SURE TO PIN IT!
