Supplies

  • Scrap wood – I am using a piece of 1/4″ plywood cut at
  • Paint or Stain – I am going with stain in Kona
  • Paint or Stain Applicator
  • Twine, String, or Ribbon
  • Wreath Hanger
  • Free Leaf Printable

  • Drill or Driver with a bit big enough for twine or string
  • Sander

Cutting DIY Fall Leaf Door Hanger

The first step is to print the leaf pattern, trace it onto your wood, and cut it out. I used a scroll saw for this. A jigsaw will work just fine if you don’t have a scroll saw.

Finishing theΒ DIY Fall Leaf Door Hanger

Now that the leaf is all cut out, it needs to be sanded. I used 120 grit sandpaper for this project.

Once the leaf is all sanded, it’s time for the finish! Kona is my go-to stain because I love the color and it is a perfect Fall colored shade. I applied the stain with a rag and wiped off the excess stain immediately. The longer you allow the stain to sit on the wood, the darker it will get. Allow the stain to dry according to the manufacturer’s recommended times.

I should have drilled a hole out of the leaf for ribbon to pass through before staining, but I forgot so it was done after staining. 😏

To give the leaf extra protection, apply two coats of polyurethane to the leaf. Allow the first coat to dry, lightly sand with 220 grit sandpaper, and apply another coat. Drying times will vary depending on the maker of polyurethane.

Once the poly is dry, use a wreath hanger, and hang on your door. This doesn’t have to be a decoration for just the outside either, hang it on your interior doors, cabinet doors, or wherever you want it to feel more like Fall!
