Hold the Door (Hanger)

April is coming. And with it, the FINAL season of Game of Thrones.

If I’m being honest, I’ve been preparing for the premiere all year long — starting with my 2019 NYE Game of Thrones headband. Yep, I literally rang in the new year in GOT style. After that, my little Shiba Inu felt left out, so I made him a Direwolf in Training DIY Bandana next. (Isn’t he just the cutest little direwolf ever?!)

With the Game of Thrones season premiere of April 14 quickly approaching toward us, I figured it was about time to share another super easy Game of Thrones DIY — a “Hold the Door” door hanger.

Okay, spoiler alert for those GOT fans who are WAY behind!

Oh, Hodor…. 🙁 <3

    I still need to catch up on GOT. I am way behind I think. I am past the Red Wedding but I don’t remember what episode I am exactly on.

      You’ve got a couple seasons ahead of you then! But it is TOTALLY worth it to get caught up!

    I’m excited for more Game of Thrones, and sad that it is the last season. From the first episode I thought that Jon Snow would be the rightful ruler, but now I’m not so sure.

      I’m torn too — I can’t wait to see how it all ends, but I’m sad I won’t have a new season to look forward to anymore!

    This is a fun idea! I never thought to make a door hanger with my silhouette, but I think there are a lot of possibilities!

      So many options! And it doesn’t require a lot of materials – I just used a piece of cardstock!
