Sleeping Baby Door Hanger

 

Approximate Time: 1 hour (includes drying time)

Materials:
Wood Plaque of Your Choice
Paint
Ribbon
Scrapbook Alphabet Letters
Permanent Marker (Fine Tipped)
Mod Podge (Gloss)
Sponge brush
Embellishments
Glue (Tacky or Hot)
Drill

Instructions:

1. Drill holes in plaque to desired size.  I used 1/4 inch ribbon so I used a small drill bit.  **If you don't have an electric drill, you can easily make a hole using a screw or a hammer.

2.  Paint the entire plaque in your desired color.

3.  Wait until the paint is completely dry!!!  This is very important - have patience!

4.  Place letters on board.  I outlined the letters with a fine-tipped black permanent marker to help them pop.  White or paint pens would have worked well too.

5.  Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge using sponge brush on entire plaque.  Not too much, just enough to add a little sheen and keep the letters on.  See detailed look below:











6.  Using Tacky Glue or Hot Glue, attach your embellishments.  String ribbon through holes.

And viola!  You have a delightful sign any mother would appreciate.
