Are you ready to celebrate Independence Day? The 4th of July is just around the corner and I have a fun Star Door Hanger to add to your patriotic decor. 🇺🇸

Here’s what you’ll need…
- Unfinished wood star hanger – mine is 10 inches wide and I found it at Dollar Tree
- 12 inch piece of patterned scrapbook paper
- 3/4 inch or 1 inch wood beads (like these and these) – I used red, white, and natural
- Natural jute twine
- 4 inch unfinished wood star cutout
- Various ribbons to match your scrapbook paper
- Mod Podge
- Foam brush
- Hot glue gun
First, trace your 10 inch star on the back of the scrapbook paper and cut out. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the wood star using a foam brush. Attach the cut out paper star to the wood star, smoothing out any wrinkles. Let dry and apply a thin layer of Mod Podge over the paper. Let dry.
Make your beaded hanger by cutting a piece of twine about 16 inches long. Fold it in half and thread the beads onto the twine. I used 6 beads on mine. Pull the loop through the top bead, leaving enough for a hanging loop, and tie a knot close to the bead. Also tie a knot close to the bead at the bottom. Use an awl, or the tip of your scissors, to poke a hole through the paper at the top of the star. Thread one end of the twine on the beaded hanger through the hole and tie in a double knot on the back. Trim any excess twine.
I used the easy Re-fabbed bow method to make a bow with various ribbons I had on hand. Then I attached the bow and my 4 inch star using my hot glue gun.
This little project took less than 30 minutes to put together! It would be a fun Summer activity to do with the kids.
I think this would also be cute done in white and natural for a little farmhouse Christmas decor. I may have to go get some more supplies…😉
