Easter Express Collection: Amazing Door Decor by Jennifer Beason

Hello, Doodlebug friends. Jennifer here and today I'll be sharing a project featuring the new Easter Express collection. I love to create fun and whimsical scenes using Doodlebug stickers and die-cuts. So that's just what I did with this Spring project.
After drawing a pattern for the shape of the wall hanging, I cut it out of 1/4" birch plywood. (If you want to make something similar, but don't feel comfortable using a saw, you can always use layers of thick chipboard or foam board, instead.)
The windmill was drawn, then cut out of chipboard, by hand. I created the windows, door, and blades, using my Silhouette software.  The pieces were then cut out of thin chipboard using my Silhouette. (I layered each piece to get the thickness I wanted.)
After I had my base and windmill pieces cut, I began covering them with patterned paper and cardstock.  As you can see I had fun using shaped sprinkles, doodle pop stickers and die cuts throughout the project. I did cheat a little, by using a few embellishments from the Spring Things collection as well.
To achieve a layered look on some of the die-cuts, like the egg tree and fence I mounted them to chipboard.
A title sticker was used to create a small sign. Again, it was mounted to chipboard then was hung from a wood peg that was attached to the main piece.  Jellybean sprinkles were applied to the sign and I also added some egg die-cuts to the bottom.
Thanks so much for stopping by, everyone. Happy Crafting! Jennifer
