Easy Craft - Make a Card Door-Hanger!

Door-hangers are such a lot of fun to make!

You will Need:
Card - coloured or white
Fibre tip Pens
Stickers or other embellishments
Glue sticks
Acrylic paint, shapes and sponge (optional)


Print out the template (when the new page opens click on File and then Print)

Trace the door-hanger onto card, or cut out a template and draw around it, onto the card.

If you want - cut out and stick on one side "Come In!" and on the other "Stay Out!" or stick on "My Room!"

The lettering can be coloured-in, either before or after it has been stuck onto the card door-hanger.

Finish off by adding stickers or any other embellishments.





Another version we made was using reverse stencilling.

Use White Tack to temporarily hold down the shapes and then sponge acrylic paint over and around the shape. Leave to dry and then remove the shape.

Stickers can then be used to finish it off. 
If the door knob or handle will not fit into the "hole" then just cut a slit across the left side, about half way down the "hole".


All these Door-Hangers were made by our group
 at the Day Centre for the Elderly.
