DIY "Cotton" Door Hanger!

With Spring here, and the weather changing it is time to change that old door hanger too! Here is our                24'' Cotton Door Hanger and tips on how to personalize it yourself!! Feel free to email us at support@build-a-cross.com for any questions or comment. You can also call us at 1.866.992.7677!!

 Step 1:

Paint  part of cotton white.  While you are painting it white dip your brush in a small amount of brown paint and then paint it onto the cotton. This gives it a more authentic look. 

 Step 2:
Paint the stem a dark brown color. 

 Step 3:
Outline the cotton in a light brown color. 

  Step 4:
Paint "Welcome" or "Welcome to the Whoever's" in black. 

 Step 5:
Outline the stem in white paint. 

Thanks for reading and look out for next week as we preview our trip to Canton Trade Days in Canton,Texas!

Spring Time and Door Hangers!

With spring fast approaching, and the urge to do something a little different than what your neighbors are doing, our door hanger ideas might be just the thing you need. Here for the next few weeks we will be sharing some of our favorite door hangers that we have come across with our products and the links for you to Do-It-Yourself

In my opinion, Mason Jar would be my first pick. Nothing says southern springtime to me more than a cool breeze and a mason jar full of sweet tea. Here is a great picture of our 24'' Mason Jar. You can also check out our Build-A-Cross Facebook Page for different painting ideas!

My other choice for springtime door hangers would have to be our Flip Flop. This picture was  sent by one of our wholesalers' Jessica M. This is our 24'' Flip Flop and is easy to paint. She painted the whole flip flop pink, and then she laid a wooden pattern on top to create the pattern that you see here.
You can visit our Build-A-Cross Twitter Page for more ways to paint our flip flops!

I will update this weekly with different ideas, news around our shop,  and the current happenings with our ministry Freedom Challenge!  Have a great week, and you can email us at support@build-a-cross.com or call us at 318.281.9071
