How to make a hanging door signHey hey All Things Girlie peeps! I’m Jessica from Mom 4 Real, and I am so excited to be here!I am the mom of a true girlie girl. Recently we gave her room a little makeover, and now, we made a little sign for her door. I mean, we wouldn’t want someone to make a wrong turn thinking it was her brothers room or something! This was such a fun project…let me show you how we made it.

How to make a hanging door sign silhouetteWe started by cutting out some fabric letters using our Silhouette and some fabric transfer paper. No worries if you don’t have a cutting machine…you can buy iron on letters just about anywhere now!

How to make a hanging door sign ribbonThe sign part is pretty much finished at this point, so Kate picked out some ribbon to hang it with.

How to make a hanging door sign hot glueWe slid a dowel through the pocket at the top (like a curtain), and hot glued a long strand of ribbon around each end of the dowel.

So…do you have a little girl that needs a sign on her door???

Thank you so much for having me, Brooke!

I hope you will come visit me over at my little blog, Mom 4 Real and see what I’ve been up to!
