How to make your own bedroom door sign

A bedroom door sign is sometimes necessary in certain living situations. In big families, it helps kids assert ownership of their living spaces. In shared apartments, it's a cheerful way to identify your room. You can make your own door sign rather easily at home, and not just a standard flat sign -- you can make a three-dimensional presentation that will put a smile on every face that passes through your door.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Lay two sheets of newspaper on top of each other, then twist them into a tight coil. Shape this coil into the first letter of your name. Repeat this process for each additional letter of your name.

  2. 2

    Glue the back of each letter securely onto a large piece of cardboard. Allow them to dry.

  3. 3

    Mix 125 g (1 cup) of flour, 474 ml (2 cups) of water and 1 tsp of salt in a bowl until it reaches a paste-like consistency.

  4. 4

    Pour this mixture all over your letters until they are completely saturated. Use the back of your mixing spoon to make sure the mixture spreads evenly around each letter's surface area.

  5. 5

    Put this craft in a safe place for a few days until it is completely dry and hard.

  6. 6

    Paint your name. You can paint all of the letters the same colour, mix up the colours, paint one letter in several colours -- it's totally up to you. You can even glue on rhinestones, sequins, beads or any other decoration you choose. Allow the paint and glue to dry completely.

  7. 7

    Cut away the cardboard mount, carefully trimming around each letter. Your bedroom door sign is ready to hang.
