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!

Come check out my latest project!



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 some fall branches from Hobby Lobby.

I cut the branches apart and stuck
them inside the mail slot of the mailbox.

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.

I hung the mailbox on my front door
from a command hook.
