DIY 4th Of July Hanging Door Decoration


Hello everyone! I hope you're all doing well. It isn't summer yet, but these temperatures are definitely feeling like it! How's the weather over where you live? Today I created a quick, and simple craft.  I will take you through creating your very own 4th of July hanging door decoration 

Video tutorial

Materials needed

One wooden truck decoration

One small bamboo ring  -Purchased at Dollar Tree, and comes in a pack of two

Wood stars


Floral snips

Floral-Purchased at Dollar Tree

Paint brushes

Hot glue


Start by applying red paint onto your wooden truck.  Between coats you can use a blow dryer, or heat gun to help with drying.

Next, take your black paint, and begin to paint the wheels on your wood truck.  I applied the black paint around the outer section of the wheel, and left the center clear of paint. Using your white paint, apply paint into the center of each wheel. 

Take some blue paint and apply it onto your bamboo ring. Be sure to apply paint on the inner section of the ring.

Using your paint brush apply paint onto each of your wooden stars. I went with red, white, and blue.  Set them aside, and allow it to dry.

Take your your scissors, and cut a medium length strand of twine. Take your twine, and tie each end to your bamboo ring. When you are done, this should create a loop. Tie off the ends, and create a knot. 

After, take your hot glue, and apply some onto the lower section of your bamboo ring. Take your wooden truck, and add it onto your bamboo ring. 

Next, take your wooden stars, and add them onto your bamboo ring. 

After gluing on your stars, take your floral snips, and begin to cut your floral to size. Flip your bamboo ring over so that the back side of the truck is facing up. Use your hot glue, and attach your floral onto the bed section of your truck.
