5 Creative Ways to Use Vintage Doorknobs

Do you love the look and feel and aura of vintage items…but sometimes get lost in trying to figure out what to actually do with those items? This is a struggle for many people. While creatively reusing and repurposing things is commendable for its green effect on the environment, it can be a challenge to make the old items successful in their new “life”…rather than a pile of junk that isn’t working at all.

Here are five creative ways to use, and showcase, your beautiful vintage doorknobs:

Bouquet of Vintage Doorknobs.

Out with the Old, In with the Spring! (5 DIY Door Decorations)

I’ll admit it, I’ve caught a bit of spring fever. It should come as no surprise, really, as it happens every March for me as the snow starts to melt (finally!) and a green stem or two begins to peek its way out of the soil. If you’re like me, you might not want to let Mother Nature have all the spring decorating fun! So here are some, five to be exact, ideas for fast and easy DIY front door decorations that say: “Bring on the Spring!”

DIY Moss Wreath.

Nothing says spring like the color green, especially when it’s in nature-inspired form. This door decoration could really not be more easy to create. Simply grab an old wreath (grapevine, styrofoam, whatever you have on-hand), some spanish moss (which can be purchased at a craft supply store), and a hot glue gun, and you’re in business. Hang with a ribbon, like this one, or a simple hook. I like the modern feel of this wreath, as it requires no extraneous adornments to exude the look and feel of springtime.{found on lifeelove}.
