Great Christmas Craft Using Old/ Vintage Wood Door

50K Views
Hi all! A couple of years ago, I came across an old wood door at a great price and snatched it up. It sat for quite some time in my garage until I came up with something fabulous to be done with it.

After cleaning the door, I started off by slapping on some washes of paints in different colors, with the majority being grey. I then added some watered down gold paint in random areas. I wasn't particular about this at all!.

Then, I figured out where I would need the bottom urn for what I envisioned for this door.

After I hand painted the urn, I place a star up on top of the door and then proceeded to figure out how to make sure the bulbs I was going to add would be straight.

I put a screw at the top where I would be hanging the start and then two screws at the bottom on each side of the top of the urn. I strung string around each of the screws to make the triangle.
I used hot glue and many different sizes and types of gold and silver balls and glued them all onto the door, with the larger being at the base. I also added a pretty, yet rustic door knob where the holes were for the original hardware.

In hindsight, I probably would opt for a different type of glue - some of the bulbs came off over time, but that's easily fixed.

    Beautifully different. I'd think there would be a queue of people in line for it. There would be room for it in homes that have not much room to begin with. Lol.
