Simple Stamped Card Door Hanger

I have two kids and privacy in our home is something that is becoming more of a requirement for our 11-year-old daughter. (Totally a preteen thing, right?) Sometimes our rambunctious 5-year-old boy misses the cue that a closed bedroom door is not an open invitation to waltz in. I’m not a huge fan of locking interior doors, so with my daughter’s help, we came up with a cute ballerina door hanger to let her brother know when it was OK to enter or not.

So let me show you how to make it: {affiliate links included for your convenience, read more here}

Tutorial:

To start, I found this ballerina print over at The Graphics Fairy and printed it out on regular cardstock. You could also use a fun card you’ve received in the mail from a friend or family member, making this project more sentimental.

Next, we used the letter stamps and some black acrylic paint to add the word “welcome” to the front side of the card and “shhh…” to the back side. I would have used an ink pad, but couldn’t find mine and the paint seemed to work in a pinch, giving the letters a chunky outlined look. Lucky for us, since we used such a small amount of paint, it dried super quick.

Then, we sandwiched the bottom of the card between two craft sticks and used hot glue to hold everything together. The same process applied to the top part, but we added a piece of bakery twine (cut to about 10″) between the pieces to create a hanger for the card.

And that’s it! My daughter says she feels like she is in a fancy hotel with her little door hanger. I had to remind her that there was not a maid service here, though.

As for my son, he knows that if he sees the ballerina, that he is welcome to go in and so far he has stayed out when the sign is turned around. Here’s hoping that we can maintain some sense of privacy in this household as our kids get older!

No only will I make this for her, but one for myself as well with the original text. Thank you for sharing this cute little sign.
