Faux Canvas & Floral Door Hanging

If you're anything like me, you tire quickly of having the same things hanging day to day.

I tend to have areas in the house that I don't rearrange very often but our front door is certainly not one of them. 

My wreath styles have changed a LOT in the past years and this spring I decided to go with something a bit more non-traditional than a typical round wreath. Although my wreath from last summer was round, I still consider it a bit non-traditional too. You can see my cute snow-cone wreath from last year here

This year, I went with something a bit more neutral that could withstand spring & summer if I wanted it too. And my choice of flowers tend to nod towards Fall too which was a happy accident. 

I actually created the fabric/wood hanging last fall for my fall mantle but decided it was lightweight enough to hang on the door as well! 

I added some floral & twig touches to cozy it up a bit too. 
I'll give you the quick run-down on how I created it- it's such a versatile piece that could easily hang in the house or out. 

Here's what I gathered: 
*Thin wood pieces (mine were leftover pieces from a past project, long pieces bought from Lowes) 
*Scrap Fabric (thicker is best if hanging on a door with a window)
*Faux flowers (mine are Sola Wood Flowers leftover from my sister's wedding) 
*Hot Glue Gun 

For the fabric piece, iron it before cutting and then cut to your desired width/length. I frayed mine a bit on the edges after attaching the wood pieces. Add your desired wording with heat transfer vinyl. This is where it gets fun. Add anything you like- a fun quote, song lyrics, your last name, etc. 

The wood pieces were cut about an inch past the fabric on either side. I stained them with a light walnut and then sandwiched the fabric in between two pieces for the bottom and then again at the top. I used a handful of black screws and made sure they went through both the fabric and wood to keep them together. Now you have a beautiful, scroll-like fabric hanging. 

I left the hanging with just the fabric & wood for my fall mantle set-up and it was perfectly pretty as it was. You can see it by scrolling through this post here.

To add to the door, I wanted to give it a little more impact and color so I added some wooden flowers we had leftover from my sister's wedding. They were already dyed the orange color so I wove in natural colors with the orange along with some sprigs of twigs & babies breath. If I had been starting from scratch, I may have ended up doing a bit more spring-y of a color than the orange but I liked being able to use what I had :) 

A better view of how I attached the wood pieces together. I used scraps leftover from a bigger project but Hobby Lobby also sells bundles of short, rustic pieces that would be perfect and cheap. 

To top of the spring look to our porch, I added a lighter colored rug under our doormat, added a mini table with a few bright & cozy spring items and a gorgeous planter from Oak Knoll Creations with some beautiful Hydrangeas that I'm hoping to attempt to keep alive. 

A quick item source list from the porch for you: 
Grey & white fringe rug: TJ Maxx
Doormat: Hobby Lobby
Pom Blanket: Shower curtain from Dirt Cheap
Hydrangeas: Lowes
White Basket: Ikea
Pillows: JoAnns & cover from Hobby Lobby
Tic Tac Toe wooden pieces: Target Dollar Spot

I'm loving the simplicity of a non-round wreath this year for some reason. And I love that it can easily match decor through fall if I wanted it to. What's hanging on your door this summer? Can you see yourself making a quick wooden scroll hanging??
