How to Make a Baby Announcement Door Hanger
(Charles Novaes)

After nine long months, the day finally arrives, and your little bundle of joy is placed in your arms. Now it's time to place your baby announcement hanger on your door to reveal your child's arrival to friends and neighbours. This attention-grabbing door hanger includes all your baby's vital information, such as her name, length, weight, birth date and time. You may want to make several baby announcement door hangers and give one to grandparents who live far away. Filling out the details and hanging it on their door makes them feel like a part of the joyous occasion.

  1. 1

    Cut a piece of ribbon approximately 12 to 16 inches long, depending on the amount of distance you want from the doorknob to the bear.

  2. 2

    Using safety pins, pin the ends of the ribbon to the back of the teddy bear, which should be between 9 and 12 inches long.

  3. 3

    Cut the poster board into the shape of a heart, baby bib or any shape you choose. This poster board will be attached to the front of the bear, so the size of the cut piece should match the size of the teddy bear's belly. It can be slightly larger if needed.

  4. 4

    Punch two holes near the top of the poster board. Write the words "Name," "Date," "Time," "Height" and "Weight" on the poster board. Align the words to the left margin and draw a line from the end of the word to the right margin. Decorate the poster board cutout with markers, glitter, paint or stickers.

  5. 5

    Attach the poster board cutout to the teddy bear using a decorative diaper safety pin. Once the baby is born, fill in the details and joyfully display your baby announcement door hanger.

Tips and warnings

  • Use a large cookie cutter or stencil to help create the shape of your poster board cutout.
  • Do not allow a child to play with the teddy bear until the safety pins are removed.
