Lemons just scream springtime and summertime. Use this tutorial to create a cute lemon door hanger to add that perfect cheery vibe to your front door.
Hey, y’all! Coach Jordan is joining us today with another one of his incredible designs. This time, he’s making a lemon door hanger that’s perfect to hang on a front door on a wall inside your home.
Customers love spring and summer designs that look like they were much harder to make than they actually were. And this cheery door hanger fits the bill!
The yellow and green lemon door hanger makes the perfect backdrop for a sunny summertime design you can make in under 15 minutes.
How To Make A Lemon Door Hanger
For all the Craftpreneurs, try this design because it comes together very quickly and will sell out in your shop even faster! Since it’s a door hanger, it’s different (but just as bright and happy) as our Lemon Wreath.
Here’s everything you need to make this sunny, summer-y, and cheery door hanger.
- Lemon door hanger
- (3) yellow floral picks
- Lemon pick
- Zip ties
- (1) 2.5” ribbon
- (4) 1.5” ribbons
- Hot glue gun and hot glue
Use these step-by-step instructions to put this project together. This project is so quick and easy because we don’t want to hide the amazing lemon door hanger base. Rather, we simply want to accent it so that it will really pop!
We’re going to start by layering the florals.
Spread the florals apart and shape them to give depth and dimension to the design. Layer them so that they look nice and full and have some open space in the middle for a bow.
Add a lemon floral pick on top. Intertwine all the layers of greenery and florals together so they look like one cohesive design. Then secure them with a zip tie in the center.
Grab another zip tie and use it to attach the greenery bunch to the lemon door hanger.
It’s time to make a simple (but funky!) bow by hand.
Grab the 1.5” ribbon and make (2) 6” tails with (1) 4” loop. Repeat this same process with your next 1.5” ribbon, alternating the direction of the loop and tails.
Grab a 3rd 1.5” ribbon to make another layer following the same measurements and process. And add one more layer with the fourth 1.5” ribbon.
Finally, take two 2.5” ribbons and cut one 13” ribbon tail from each ribbon. Dovetail the ends and add them to the bow as a bottom layer.
Grab another zip tie and wrap it around both the center of the bow and the door hanger. Cinch it tight and cut off the excess.
Look over your bow and florals. Dovetail any ribbon tails you may have missed.
If you want to add a small sprig of greenery to the very center of your bow with hot glue. It’s optional but covers up the zip ties and makes the entire design feel cohesive.
Make sure to spread all the tails out so they help make an “x” shape with the loops to make this small bow feel full and gorgeous.
And that’s it! The process is super simple because we really want to highlight the lemon door hanger base rather than hide it!
Note: This design is GREAT for those that want a simple touch or someone who wants a door hanger but doesn’t want something as large as a wreath.
