Are you looking for something fun and unique to put on your front door this season that's not a wreath? I’m sharing three Spring door hangers that are easy to make, using items you either have already or can be found at the thrift store!


I love decorating our front door and porch for the different seasons. It makes our home stand out as something special in our neighborhood, shows my personality, and is welcoming to visitors—even if it’s only the Fed-Ex and Amazon drivers who come over regularly.

Wreaths are traditionally what people hang on their doors and, don’t get me wrong, I love them, but they can be a bit pricey…especially if you like to change things out year to year like I do. Also, I like to use unique items to decorate with, so I tend to think outside of the box for door hangers.

Also, if you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know that I love to thrift shop and use secondhand pieces to make our house look its best. I often look for thrifted items I can makeover or use in a new way…not just pieces to use as is.

I’m sharing three ideas for door hangers this Spring that will add a welcoming entrance for all your visitors or passersby to enjoy. All the decorations include pieces I thrifted, made over in some way, and incorporated a few store-bought additions as well.

The first door hanger was so much fun to make and couldn’t have been easier! I found a pair of rubber boots at the thrift store and knew they would be perfect as some sort of Spring décor! I’m pretty sure they cost me less than $3 too…making them so budget friendly!

When I got the rubber boots home, I gave them a few coats of white spray paint to start. I already had the paint, so that’s the color I went with. I really like how the white pops on the door, since our entryway tends to be a little dark.

After the paint dried, I used the loop on the back of the boots to tie them together, so they could hang easily. One of the boots was missing the loop, so I just sliced a hole in the boot and ran the string through that. It worked like a charm! Just a reminder to not get frustrated if something doesn’t work out quite the way you think…there is usually a way around it!

I tied a vintage scarf at the top of the boots and added some yellow floral stems—both of which I already had! The door hanger was such a fun and easy project that cost me almost nothing!


The next door hanger idea is one that I’ve used for a few years. I’m always on the lookout for great straw bags at the thrift store and this one was a favorite of mine, in very nice condition and with great structure, so it’s held its shape well.

To customize the bag, making it a little more to my taste, I taped off the top half with a plastic bag over it, and spray painted the bottom black. Then, I wrapped the wooden handles with yarn and tied a vintage thrifted scarf on for extra color and interest. Finally, I added some bright yellow floral stems for that perfect springtime pop!

Not only is the woven bag door hanger perfect for Spring décor, but it is also very versatile! Last Fall, I took the yellow blooms out and added dried hydrangeas to it instead. I love the full look of it and when it was time to put Christmas decorations up, I was able to simply take the whole thing down and hang it up in the garage for next time!


The last door hanger I’m sharing has been in mind to make for a couple of years and I just never took the time to do it! I see vintage racquets at the thrift store all the time. Like…there isn’t one trip I make to the Goodwill Outlet that I don’t see at least one. One of the things I like most about these racquets is that they normally have fun colors on the handles.

I found these blue cuties a while ago and actually had them for sale in my booth at The Brass Armadillo. When I decided that I was finally going to do the project, instead of searching the thrift stores for more, I just grabbed them out of my booth—less money spent!

This project is a great example of “fake it ‘til you make it.” I wasn’t at all sure how I would attach the racquets together to make the door hanger. I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to try and drill through them to screw the two together. I wanted to keep this project simple, using just my hot glue gun.

I ended up using a rubber band to keep the two racquets crossed across each other at the handles and a piece of string tied between the tops of the racquets. I reinforced the rubber band with a piece of ribbon wound around them and tied together. I “hid” the ribbon with several blue ribbons loosely gathered like a necktie—I love the movement they add to the door hanger!

The best part of the vintage racquet door hanger is the faux daffodils I added to the netting! I did buy these stems—I needed so many, I wasn’t sure that I’d find enough at the thrift store. When I buy faux florals for projects, I normally buy them at Dollar Tree, but I was bummed this time to find that they’ve raised all their prices to $1.25… That extra quarter really adds up!

I popped the daffodil blooms off their stems and laid them out on the racquets to make sure I had enough to fill them. I wish that I’d bought more to make them a bit fuller, but then again…that would have made the project more expensive.

Regardless of not being fuller, I love the way the daffodils look on the vintage racquets. I hot glued them into place, and they are on very securely, so I don’t have to worry about them falling off out in the elements.


One of the reasons I love DIY décor for our home is that I can change it often, season to season, or year to year, without feeling guilty about spending too much money. I’m able to create both everyday and seasonal decorations that work with my eclectic and colorful aesthetic and stay on budget! Plus…I really like it when I have items that are completely unique—no one else can run out to the store and buy them.

I hope that I’ve inspired you to get creative with things you have already laying around your house or pieces that you find at the thrift store. It is always fun for me to look at what I have and see how I can fill a decorating need with it. Sometimes you just need to look outside the box to get new ideas for how to use things. Not only will you stretch your decorating budget this way, but you will also have a unique home, creating that perfect eclectic design.

Did you know you can bleach wood without using bleach? I hopped on the trendy ovencleaner stripping method and it worked great on this piece! I just knew when I saw it that this old globe I found on Facebook Marketplace could be upcycled into something fun and it turned out better than I expected.

Wreaths don't have to be expensive. See how I transformed this thrifted wreath into a charming carrot wreath for Easter for less than $15. Happy Crafting!
