"a quick way to personalize a door"
Hi everyone! Jen Johner here today! We recently moved into a new house, and while setting up my kids' rooms.. I have been looking for way to make them more personal, fun little things that help make their new rooms feel like theirs. That is what led to this super quick little project!
My sons room kind of has a 'woodland' theme, and when I saw this new woodgrain paper from Hambly.. I just knew I had to incorporate it somehow! My goal was to make a name tag so to speak, but instead of using his name, I simply created a tag that says 'boy' ..and the other one I will make for my daughter's room will simply say 'girl' ..fun right?
I started by creating the text on my computer, using the font called 'vintage', then printing out using a light grey ink (to conserve as much ink as possible of course).
Then, I cut it out using a craft knife.. and laid it out on the BACK SIDE of the patterned paper in REVERSE. This way, once cut.. all the pen/pencil lines will be on the back and you won't have to worry about erasing anything.
Once cut out.. flip over and see your customized alphas!
To hang these letters on my son's door, I used white adhesive putty.. found it at the craft store in the adhesive aisle.. completely safe for paint and projects!! Easy to move things around to get the perfect position.. and when you are finished or want to switch things up, it peels right off!
Voila! SUPER easy, totally customized door art for a kids bedroom! The possibilities are really endless.. I find myself looking all over the house now, wondering what will be my next victim for some woodgrain awesomeness! hee!
