An Elegant Door Knob Hanger Tutorial

I am doing something outside my comfort zone by creating with beautiful products from Mon Ami Gabby! See the amazing trim, spray and flowers. Mixed with an equally wonderful stencil design by Rita Barakat (her first design - congrats girlie!) and Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® products, I came up with this creation...

After I painted the door hanger in Chalkboard Paint (use two coats - allow dry time for each coat), stencil using Whipped Spackle and let dry.

Paint over the stenciled area with a coat of Chalkboard Paint - LOVE the embossed look of the design!

After the paint dried, I colored the embossed area with Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® - Gold Champagne. Tip: outline the area and spread the color with your finger towards the middle. Add color until you get your desired look. What a stunning backdrop as we start to layer on more items!

Add 4" Black Diamond Mesh Classics trim around the bottom area of hanger (see image) and secure with Extreme Double-Sided Tape ½" Permanent.

Add three clear rhinestones on the lower left corner as accents, using your Tool 'n One.

Add Tiny Gold Sequins (aren't they cute?!) with Dodz™ - Small (I tore them into smaller pieces) and adhered them.

Using several Dodz™ - 3D, I adhered my Crystal Wheat Spray/Gold Glitter Flowers cluster to create the focal point of the project. The combination of gold, glitter and the sprays against the trim make a stunning design :)

For a more personal touch, I added an initial in gold to the project by adhering gold mirror cardstock to 3D Foam Creative Sheet and cut/emboss with a letter die template. Place on top of the sequined area to finish.

Here is another look...
