Easy Valentine's Day Door Hanger

I did this door hanger for my sister a few years ago, and then we ended up using the frame part for another craft after Valentine's Day was over. I recently came across the ribbon and heart in a bin that I forgot I had, so I decided it would be fun to make it again. It's so easy to do that I thought I'd share it here.
Everything above is all you need to complete this craft.  And all was purchased from Hobby Lobby.  Since the heart was purchased a few years ago, I don't think they have the exact one this year.  But I was just in there purchasing the frame and brushes and I saw very similar ones.  Just make sure it has some kind of loop or wire to put the ribbon through.  You'll see what I'm talking about with the finished product.


Step one, paint the frame.  I purchased this 12x12 frame from the wood section at Hobby Lobby.  It's the aisle with all the wooded letters and crosses.  It only takes about 10 minutes or so to dry, and it only took me one coat of paint.  Make sure to get the inside and outside edges coated as well.


I had this white ribbon already, so I didn't purchase new ribbon.  I decided the white was boring, so I took red and pink paint pens and decorated it.  You can do this or buy any kind of festive ribbon that you like.  I just recommend making sure it's a good sturdy ribbon because this is what you will use to secure the frame and hard on the hanger.


And putting it all together is also super easy.  Just thread the ribbon through the loop and around the top of the frame and tie it in a bow on your door hanger.  Ribbon length is your preference.  If you find that it's a bit wobbly or won't hang right, I suggest securing the frame part to the door with one or two of these 3M Command strips.  They work perfectly and don't harm your door.  I used them on my Alabama door hanger this Fall to keep it from hitting the door when it was windy out.


After Valentine's Day is over this would be super easy to transition to a St. Patrick's Day or Easter hanger as well just by changing the insert and ribbon.
