Use this free free svg to make your own Hello Pumpkin round door hanger! Use heat transfer vinyl on wood to get perfectly crisp looking letters or cut out a stencil with your Silhouette Cameo and use these tips to help you get perfectly crisp paint lines.
These wood rounds found at the home improvement store are perfect to use as wreaths!
The problem with these is that they can be a bit heavy so you have to make sure they are secure on your door and won’t fall off and pull the hook off with it!
Lately I’ve seen thinner versions of these wood rounds at craft stores (like Hobby Lobby or Michaels) which is a much better option if you’re worried about the weight!
There are a few things I did differently to this wood round that I haven’t typically seen in al the craft groups I’m in.
I decided to use heat transfer vinyl instead of paint and a stencil on wood (I did that here and I loved the result!). I like using htv because it melts into the wood and gives it a painted look without having to mess with a stencil and hope that your paint doesn’t bleed underneath.
I also made the bow removeable so that you can put a design on the back of your wood too. That way your wood round will always lay flat against the door because the bow is attached by velcro for easy removal!

Common questions about the Hello Pumpkin round door hanger.
Where did you buy the wood round?
I found mine at Home Depot but you can also find them on Etsy or at Lowes.
The ones from Home Depot and Lowes are heavy so if you want to find something thinner and more lightweight you should check both Etsy and Amazon.
The wood rounds from Home Depot or Lowes can be hung from a 5lb. Command Hook though! That is what I have on my office door and it’s still hanging in there with that wood round!
These wood rounds are incredibly popular and are sold out at a lot of Home Depot stores and Lowes. Check online before heading to your local store!
What font did you use for the word pumpkin?
How did you get such crisp paint lines on your wood round?
For this project I actually used heat transfer vinyl instead of paint. I just found it easier and faster because I didn’t feel like waiting around for the paint to dry!
But, if you want to use paint instead of htv, you can! Either way works and you’ll get the same result in the end.
I wrote an entire post about prepping wood signs for painting and stenciling that’ll help you stop paint bleeds in their tracks!
You will need either mod podge or paint (same color as the background of your round) depending on your project and what you prefer.
Can you use heat transfer vinyl instead of stencil vinyl and paint for your wood round?
Hell yea you can!
I used heat transfer vinyl on these wood ornaments and it is SO easy to do!
If I don’t have stencil vinyl on me this is actually my preferred method. You don’t have to worry about your paint bleeding either which is a huge bonus.
You can read all about using htv on wood here. It’s my favorite way to use up htv if I don’t need it for a t-shirt!
Do you need to seal your wood round after the paint dries?
I always seal wood signs, especially if they’re going outside.
For us, we have a screen door so the wood piece is always protected. But we do open the screen door from time to time and I always want my wood signs to be protected in those cases!
You should use polycrylic if you are going to seal your sign.
