Gather Your Crafting Materials

Before we begin, gather your crafting essentials:

  • Acrylic paints in various spring colors. I used Delta Ceramcoat in Calypso Coral, Purple Heather, Wedgewood Green, White, Rosy Beige, and DecoArt Americana Burnt Umber.
  • Paintbrushes of different sizes and make up sponges
  • Palette for mixing colors
  • Water cup and paper towels for cleaning brushes
  • A well-ventilated and comfortable crafting space

Step 1: Unbox your craft kit and lay out all the pieces. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the components and envision the final result. This whimsical gnome is ready to spread Easter cheer, and you get to bring it to life!

Prepare tape board and adhere small pieces to it for ease of painting. Don’t know how to make a tape board? Check out my YouTube channel for videos offering tips and tricks to make your crafting experience easier and more enjoyable!

Let’s Get Crafting Our “Hello Easter Gnome Door Hanger”

Start by applying a brown coat to the background round. Apply using wet wipes in a streaky manner to get a more wood toned look.

Paint lattice piece with a brush or sponge. Applying a good coat to make sure wood doesn’t show through.

Paint white sections like bunny ears and gnome mustache and beard using brush and makeup sponges.

Paint colored “stripe” with sponge and paintbrush. Using a sponge on the lacy edge will prevent the holes from getting clogged with paint while using a brush for the larger sections will fill section faster. Don’t forget to paint from the inside toward edges to help keep the edges clean.

Adding details now, let your creativity shine as you add charming details to your gnome and his accessories. Paint the Easter-themed elements, such as eggs, flowers, or any other embellishments included in the kit. Feel free to experiment with different patterns and designs to make your door hanger unique.
