When I see a round wood door hanger on Instagram, I immediately fall in love. I just had to make my own version of this trend and, of course, pull out my Cricut machine to do it. The process to make one of these is so simple and you will end up with something gorgeous to hang on your front door. I think I need to replace all of my seasonal wreaths with a door hanger made from wood!
Round Wood Door Hanger
Probably the most challenging part of this craft is going to be sourcing a wood round. I am going to drop a few options below but you can always check your local craft store as many places are stocking them now.
- Unfinished Wood Circle (I used a 12-inch size like this one or but this 14 inch one would work.)
- Artificial Rose Sprays in Several Sizes (you can pick other colors you like as well)
- Wood Stain (my favorite gel stain is here)
- Cricut machine
- Downloadable Cut File (you can see where to download below)
- White Vinyl (or any other color you love) (NOTE: Be sure to use a good quality permanent vinyl so your sign lasts a long time!)
- Transfer Tape
- Hot Glue and Glue Gun

How to Make a Wood Circle Door Hanger
Now that you have gathered your supplies, it is time to put them to use making your own round wood door hanger. The steps are easy so you might even want to pick up supplies to make several as these would make amazing gifts as well. With large vinyl applications like this, you might also want to consider the hinge method of application.
- Start by staining the wood circle with wood stain. Brush the stain on, allow to sit a few minutes, then wipe away all excess with a rag.
- While your circle dries, download the hello file and upload it to your Cricut machine. Cut the design from white adhesive vinyl.
- Weed away all of the excess material around the outside as well as the centers of letters. Then cover your design with transfer tape.
- Burnish well on the front and back. Then peel the backing away from the vinyl. Apply the vinyl to the wood circle.
- Burnish down well then peel back the transfer tape. Start cutting the flowers for length and placing them on the top of the wood circle.
- Use hot glue to secure the flowers into place. You can add as many or as few flowers as you would like. Then just hang your spring floral door hanger right on your door to welcome the season.
I do not seal over the top of my vinyl with anything. I just use permanent vinyl and burnish it down well. You would also want to wait 72 hours before putting this on your door to allow the adhesive to set. Otherwise, I think it will be fine. If you are worried about it, try adding Mod Podge or Polycrylic over the top after you make this round wood door hanger.
You can hang this one on an outer door but be aware that the flowers may not last very long. I have mine on an internal door or it would also look great above a mantel. Use this same idea to make a round wood door hanger for your home this weekend.
You can also change up this project for each season. I used pink roses and they work for a non-seasonal wreath. Think about using sunflowers for summer or mums for fall. I am sure you can come up with some ideas that will look great! Enjoy this DIY round wood door hanger in your home.
