Make Your Own Christmas Door Hanger Instructions:
- Start adding 9 pipe cleaners to the top of the door hanger. 5 should go across the top and 4 across the bottom.
- Hot Glue the pipe cleaners in place.
- Take your 10″ mesh and cut 9 strips (using your rotary cutter), 18 inches long.
- Take one of the 18″ strips, roll the ends of each inside once or twice and then ruffle the mesh.
- Add one of the 18″ ruffles into each pipe cleaner on the frame.
- Now create one normal wreath bow for the top center of your door hanger and attach.
- Now create two terri-bows for each side of your door hanger and attach.
- Once your bows are attached its time to fluff out of the bows to make sure you have the best coverage.
- Trim and dovetail your ribbon tails on each bow.
- Hang the door hanger on your front door and enjoy or list it for sale!. (Before you list it for sale make sure you’ve gone over our free tips on increasing your picture quality!)
