Fall Vintage Mailbox Door Hanger

It's time for my first Fall project of the season... I made a Fall Vintage Mailbox Door Hanger for my front door.

Repurposing vintage finds is totally my jam!  I especially love to use them in unexpected ways!
I found this vintage mailbox at the flea market a few weeks ago.

The mailbox was in really rough shape.  It was really dirty and had chippy paint all over.  I cleaned the dirt and cobwebs off of it. Ew!  Then I sprayed it with several coats of clear matte finish spray paint.

In the original nail holes in the back of the mailbox, I strung cotton string to be able to hang the mailbox.

I collected a faux eucalyptus bush and fall branches from the craft store.  I cut the branches apart and stuck them inside the mail slot of the mailbox.

After arranging the branches, I put felt bumpers on the back of the mailbox to keep it from scratching
my door.

I strung a strip of buffalo check fabric and glittery orange ribbon through a hole on the front of the mailbox.
