Make It Monday

I’m a little late on joining the Make It Monday crew, but better late than never.  Tonight I made an adorable burlap door hanger that was OF COURSE inspired by pinterest!

Teacher Appreciation Pencil Burlap Door Hanger Decoration HUGE - Polka Dots Back to School

via Pinterest

Hers is so PROFESSIONAL…mine not so much. I will take you step by step on how I made mine.

{Step One} Grab Your Gear


You will need:

Burlap, A Ruler, Scissors, Pliers, Wire, Paint (colors of your choice), Paint Brushes, Hot Glue Gun

Optional: Rick Rack, Ribbon, Glitter

{Step Two} Cut Burlap, I cut mine 16*8IMG_1354

Then I made the point by splitting the side at 4 inches and cut back six inches IMG_1356

{Step Three} Start Painting!



I painted 4 inches of pink and 1inch of silver. Then I marked off the curves at the end of the pencil. Painted the middle yellow, the end brown, and the tip black.  I forgot to take a picture but the tip is 1 1/2 inches across.

{Step Four} Add Rick Rack

Completely up to you if you do this step… you could just paint the lines.


{Step Five} Multi-Task

The pinterest article suggested using a lid to make the polka dots perfect.  I found the perfect lid… NUTELLA!  It was almost gone, so I took one bite of it and threw it away and used the lid.IMG_1360IMG_1362

Fill in your polka dots, and write your name.  I REALLY hate the way I write with paint, so I wanted to use the letters from my no name sign and I was just a FEW short.


This is also the time to sprinkle the glitter on. SPARINGLY!

You don’t want your sign to look like an advertisement for Toddlers and Tiaras.



{Step Six} Stuff and Glue


I stuffed mine with target bags, because Lord knows I have tons.  After stuffing just glue up the other side and Wa-La!


{Step Seven} Twist Your Wire

Just poke the wire through the burlap and twist it with your pliers or your hands if you can.



Your table may look like this


and your manicure like this


but don’t worry, both are fixable!

The ribbon I wanted to use was a no go!  Choose a ribbon with wire.  I will add it after a trip to Hobby Lobby tomorrow. I am going to use my sign for my back to school bulletin board.

and the kids are going to complete these glyphs from The Glyph Girls.

Best Part? It’s FREE!

Hello CUTE Bulletin Board.

15 more days till I go back, ahhhh the TO DOs!

I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It's beautiful value enough for me.
In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you
probably did, the internet shall be a lot more helpful than ever before.
