"One Man's Junk is another Man's Treasure"
I found these pieces of wood in the dumpster of a cabinet shop. I took a couple of pieces, and came up with this Door hanging decoration. You don't have to make it a Halloween door hanger, you can use any type of paper, or ribbon for this project. The only bummer is I didn't grab more pieces!
3 pieces of 1.5inch by 3/4 inch by 9 inch wood
Chain ( I used silver Jewelry chain)
Acrylic Paint to match your paper for the wood
10 eye hooks
First you are going to sand the edges of your wood. Then you will need to paint them the colors that match your paper
Then I took some black paint and I stressed the corners of the wood. (to stress the corner put a little bit of paint on a brush you don't care to have ruined. Stroke it on some paper until there is only a little bit of paint, and then take the brush and stroke the edges of the wood softly.)
Next you put the eye hooks on the wood like this:
Top Piece and middle piece: on the top and bottom part of the wood place eye hooks on both the left and right sides so you will have four eye hooks on each piece.
The bottom piece: place eye hooks on left and right sides only on the top of the wood
Disconnect the chain so you have four 2 inch strips and one 14 inch strip.
Connect the three pieces of wood by linking together the bottom piece of wood to the middle piece placing the chain ends in the eye hooks, and the middle and top piece by placing the chain on the middle top wood eye hooks, and the bottom of the top wood piece eye hooks.
To finish the project connect the 14 inch chain to the two top wood piece eye hooks, add a bow and there you go a darling decoration to your door.
*IDEA* While making this I thought it would be cute to do one that said Friends always Welcome, or Welcome to our house. You can really do a lot of things with this craft
