DIY Front Door Welcome Sign & Wreath


At first I had a plain navy blue door with navy blue shutters. I got bored with the color so I decided to paint the shutters and the door black. After staring at the plain black front door for months, I realized that it was boring. I needed to dress it up and didn’t want to spend a fortune on the design. I decided to try and come up with some things I had around the house or to purchase inexpensively.


To begin I needed to make my wreath. I used a wire coat hanger and bent it to a circle and connected it at the top by twisted it together with pliers. I purchased some fake flowers at a local store on sale for $1 a bundle. I began to wrap the flowers around the coat hanger and arranged it to the way I liked it.

To hang the wreath I purchased a magnetic hook from Amazon. You can get a 2-Inch Magnetic Hooks – 2 Piece Set on sale for $8.99 (price may change at any time without notice). These hold up to 15 lbs and will stick to your door if it is metal.


Next I needed to make my “Welcome” sign for the front of the door. I had some stencils in my craft supplies and laid them out with duct tape on my front door to how I wanted it. I also had some gold spray paint in my craft supplies. I decided to spray paint it gold right to my front door.

*Tip: Make sure to cover the rest of the door with paper for over spray and be careful as gold paint runs. It would work better if the front door was off the hinges and laying flat.*
