This fun décor project can be hung on a wall or door, placed on a mantle, or displayed on a shelf. I wanted something to hang on my front door, so I went with a “welcome” cutout, but there are all kinds of different cutouts available at craft stores.

Materials & Tools:

  • Unfinished wood frame without glass
  • Chalk paint (I used brown and teal)
  • Paint cups
  • Foam paintbrushes
  • Wooden cutout of your choice
  • Sandpaper or fingernail file
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Scrapbook paper of your choice
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun with glue sticks
  • Metal flower embellishment
  • Rope, twine, hemp, string, or other material for hanging, optional


Step 1: Remove the backing from your frame, and set it aside.

Step 2: Pour some brown chalk paint into a paint cup, and use a foam brush to paint the frame, covering all of the surfaces that’ll be visible. Set aside to dry completely.
