I am so ready to decorate for Fall.

I’ve always loved everything about the season, but one of my favorite things has to be the colors: burnt orange, deep reds, darker shades of yellow, and greens. Give me all of the Fall colors to decorate with and I’m a happy girl!

You may have seen these round door hangers everywhere this season. They’re super popular, especially the “hello Fall” and “hello pumpkin” variety.

So what makes this particular project different from the ones you’ve seen around?

We made our round door hanger reversible with a removable bow so that it always lays flat against the door!

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?

The font is called Beverly Hills and you can buy it here!

How did you get such crisp paint lines on your wood round?

I wrote an entire post about prepping wood signs for painting and stenciling that’ll help you stop paint bleeds in their tracks!

Head here to read that post.

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.

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.

How to prep your wood

  1. Always sand your piece of wood before doing anything else! I like using 220 grip sandpaper and working down to 80 grip.
  2. Use a tack cloth to clean all the dust from your wood round.
  3. Use a coat of pre-conditioning stain on your wood to help your wood stain soak into your wood. You'll get a richer color by doing this!
  4. Let it dry.
  5. Then do a layer of your preferred wood stain color.

How to add color and vinyl to your wood round

  1. Once your stain is dry (typically I wait about 30 minutes), tape off your wood round where you want to paint your color. I wanted my orange paint to be a little more than halfway to the top of the round.
  2. Because I used stain as my background color, I painted a light layer of mod podge on the edge of the tape to keep the paint from bleeding through.
  3. Once that was dry I painted that area below the tape with orange. Do two coats to get max coverage.
  4. Peal up the painters tape before the paint dries all the way. It should feel tacky to the touch.
  5. While the paint dries, cut out your vinyl decal on your machine. (see note #1)
  6. Weed your design and place it on top of the pumpkin.
  7. Use your Cricut EasyPress to press your vinyl on to your wood round. Then peel off the transfer tape.

How to make your bow removable

  1. Grab your velcro and put a small amount of hot glue on the back side of it. Stick it to your wood (about an inch down and measure to find the middle).
  2. Glue the other piece of velcro to the back of your ribbon. Add in other things like leaves, pumpkins, etc if you wish.
  3. Then, stick the bow onto your velcro on the wood piece!

How to hang your wood round

  1. You will need a thick rope cut into a 5-6 inch strip.
  2. Tie a knot on both ends of the rope.
  3. Hot glue each end of the rope to the top of your wood round. (see NOTE #2)
  4. Use a staple gun to secure the rope to your wood round. This will really help keep the rope in place!


1. You can use htv, adhesive vinyl, or stencil vinyl for this project. If you're using stencil vinyl you MUST paint a layer of mod podge (or your background paint color) over the stencil to keep the paint from bleeding through.

2. You do not want the ends of the rope too far away from each other or else your wood round might not lay flat. Keep them about 1.5 to 2 inches away from each other!
