How to Make Your Own Room Sign
Allow kids to customise their rooms with homemade signs. (keep out, board, notice, hoarding, warning image by creative from

Help your kids customise their rooms by creating fun, colourful signs to hang on the door. With a digital camera, some basic art supplies and a dose of creativity, kids and parents can work together to customise the door to a child's bedroom. Create a nameplate announcing to all house guests that this is Sally's Room. Parents and children may also create a series of signs that express different emotions and tasks a child may be engaged in. For example, create signs that say things like "Beware of the Mess" and "Shh...the Princess is Sleeping."

  1. 1

    Take several pictures of your child making different, silly faces to use on a variety of door signs. Take happy, sad, sleeping and just generally funny pictures. Upload the photos into the computer and select a few to print. Print out the pictures on photo paper.

  2. 2

    Trace shapes on to poster board to serve as the background for a series of door signs. Some suggested shapes include rectangles, squares, hearts, circles and clouds. Cut out the shapes.

  3. 3

    Paint the shapes with poster board paints. While the paint is drying, use foam or felt letters to spell out phrases to include on the room signs.

  4. 4

    Select pictures that correspond to each of the signs. Cut out the pictures and glue them on to the poster board bases. Glue the foam or felt letters to the poster board.

  5. 5

    Place a small line of glue around the edges of the door signs. Shake glitter on the signs and allow it to dry. Shake off any excess glitter.

  6. 6

    Cut a length of ribbon to make a handle for the room sign. Staple the end of the ribbon to the back of one side at the top of the sign. Loop the ribbon over to the opposite side and secure with a staple.
