I used to make lots of doorhangers back in the 80s--even taught others how when I worked for a craft store.

Take a wood embroidary hoop--4"-6". Separate it into the inner & outer hoop (to make 2 hangers).

Wrap each hoop with ribbon, yarn, raffia, etc. Or paint/stain the hoop.

Make a floral arrangement or other focal piece & attach to the bottom of the hoop.

Hang on the doorknob.

Note: When I did these originally it was mostly floral arranging. Now? I'd definitely be adding stamped materials or using stamped stuff to create the hanger's focal decoration.

Sorry Trudy--no pix or templates.:)

LOL, Trudy. Yeah. You were kinda 'clear-as-mud' about what you meant by 'doorhanger'.

No prob. Sorry I can't help you with the product you're interested in.:)

If I want to make a door hanger, I just cut my own out of card stock.

When I made door hanger, I used thin cardboard for my base. I went to craft section and got one of those foam door hangers and traced it off on cardboard. Gave the foam to grandson to decorate. We made them together.
