It’s that favorite time of week again when we are treated with another fantastic tutorial brought to us by one of you! This week our tutorial is brought to us by Carrie Labani. I love altered door hangers and summer is the perfect time to make them. With babies and summer and kiddos playing a cute door hanger on the front door announcing that baby is sleeping, or it’s quiet time and friends can’t play is such a great idea! Or you could make a darling hanger like Carrie did simply to spice up your child’s bedroom door.
This is a great project for your kids or grandkids. I first made on for my new baby but then my 4-year-old saw it and needed to have one. I purchased the door hanger from my local craft store for under a dollar so it was also a great bargain project too!
- Cover the door hanger on one side with paper. I used a liquid glue. Let dry and cut out with a craft knife.
- Cover the other side and cut out again. Now both sides should be covered with the hole in the middle all cut out. Then use a small ink pad to ink all the edges. I like how this gives it a nice finished look.
- Add strips of paper on the bottom of both sides. I chose different patterns for each sides.
- Add different titles to both sides. I went with Big Sis and Girls only but Naptime, Big Bro, their name or anything you like will work. Mix up your fonts or use premade stickers like I did for my Girls only side.
- Embellish with flowers, chipboard, Stickles, whatever you like and you’re done!
Thank you Carrie for the tutorial on such a darling project!
