Typically, in April I dress my home to welcome showers with a really cute tulip stuffed rubber boot. With May on the horizon however, I'm ready to ditch any thoughts of rain and snow and move on to flowers. Unfortunately, my yard hasn't started to bloom yet, so I am adding them to my front door with a sweet garden flag. A little bit of alteration, turned it into a fabulous door hanger.
It's a great option if, like me, you have a tight space between your storm and front doors. It won't get crushed, but adds some seasonal pop!
Here's the super simple DIY.

I started with a garden flag (like these)
a thin wooden stick
In order to hang the flag and ensure that it would not buckle or wrinkle, I needed to add a straight support. I grabbed a lightweight, flat wooden stick and slid it into the pocked at the top of the flag. I chose a very thin piece of wood, so I would be able to cut it with my scissors. I did not want to have to use any type of saw.
Tools are not my gig.
Which is fine, because my scissors did a great job.
With my wood in place, I moved on to making the ribbon hanger. Again, super simple process. I started with a length a ribbon and folded the center into a triangle, so it would hang flat on my front door. A little bit of glue was added to make sure that my fold would stay put.
Then, I hot glued the ends to my flag and cut off any extra.
When I was done, I made a really big bow. Bows just make everything look better, don't they?
Well, except my hair.
That stopped being cute in high school.
Don't judge. It was the 80s.
Thank you Madonna.
Anyway. Back to my spring and summer front door, that is looking gorgeous adorned in ribbon and a blooming bouquet of flowers.
By then my yard should be blooming on its own!
What's on your front door?
