Spring Art DIY - Carrot Door Hanging

Ready or not -

(and I know you're ready)

here comes 

some Spring art!

Pin It!

Pin It!

You can start this project now

and it will be ready for your

front door soon!

I used 1/2" plywood measuring 10" x 40".

Sand all edges.

Paint back and edges gray.

Paint front primer white mix.

Lay out stripes 4" and 3.25" alternating.

(a standard 4x6 photo makes a good template)

Using two colors - gray and white -

brush on stripes.

Enlarge this carrot pattern to fit the 10 x 40 space.

Pin It!

I made my own mixes of paint - pale orange

and pale green - to try to match the colors

in my photoshop sample.

Paint slightly darker orange stripes.

Put a darker green gray shade on the carrot leaf.

Attach D rings on back.

Add two 32" lengths of ribbon.

Pin It!



Folk art.

Will make a light hearted 

and graphic impact 

on your wall

or front door.

Hope you try it!
