Reversible Door Sign from Recycled Materials
Just in case you missed my guest post last Tuesday…here it is!
We meet again CSI Project Readers! What a pleasure it is to return with another project for you. I am Christine from Christine & Co.
As a crafty blogger, I enjoy recycling things that would otherwise end up in a landfill. After looking through my recycle “pile,” I came up with this sign for my older boyo’s bedroom. He is coming up on twelve, so I wanted to make something he would appreciate.
I started with these two objects…
Respectively, a piece of scrap wood and the protective plastic thingy from a package of DVDs. Yeah, that’s me taking the picture–hi.
With a sanding block, I roughed up the plastic. I know, I know–what did it ever do to me? Really, I just wanted to make sure the Mod Podge would stick.
After Mod Podging some card stock to both sides, I started flipping through old magazines. I was searching for some words that would work for the “you-can-come-in-if-you-like” side.
While I was looking for words, I came across a creature that was totally meant to be on the “at-your-own-risk” side. More about him in a minute…
For the wood piece, I used a fun scrap book paper that resembled notebook paper. Which I felt was appropriate considering he is supposed to be doing his homework in there–ahem.*
I used foam stamps and StazOn ink in stone gray to make the word “enter.”
I punched a hole in the top of my disc with my Crop-A-Dile, in order to tie a piece of leather cord onto it.
I stapled the other end of the cord to the back of the wood. Here’s that dude I was telling you about…
Oh yeah, there’s no way I’m going in there. I wrote the words in black marker and tore the paper to make it extra creepy. I’ve seen his room, trust me–it works!
