About seven years ago, my friend Sarah Beth showed me how to make a poinsettia door hanging that I have been proudly displaying ever since.
I like that it’s not a wreath, which is my go to door decor for every other season and holiday. This year, I decided to update my door hanging using black and white ribbon, a white poinsettia, and feathers.
DIY Christmas Countdown Door Hanging
Here is what I used:
A white poinsettia
B&W Hounds tooth and a trellis print ribbons (wide, wire edged ribbon works best)
The jingle bells off of my original door hanging
Wire cutters and florist wire
How to assemble:
Step one: Gather your two ribbons and start creating large loops, pinching in the middle to hold together.
Tip: Hold up the poinsettia to check size and placement before securing with wire and cutting ribbon from spools.
Step Two: Secure the ribbon with florist wire and leave about 18 inches of ribbon to tie bells to.
Step Three: Attach your ribbon tails (you can add additional ones), flower stem, and feather stems with wire.
Step Four: Tie the bells to the end of your ribbon tails and pull apart the ribbon loops.
I had picked up a cute little chalkboard sign when I was in WA a couple of weeks ago and was about to write Merry Christmas on it when my clever husband said, “hey, why don’t you write down 23 days to Christmas?” Awesome. I knew I married him for the right reasons and now I have a Christmas Countdown door hanging. Even better.
Here’s how she turned out!
