We've recently moved to a bigger house, with space for a craft room for me. The house is quite old and needs a lot of tlc, so we're busy stripping wallpaper which means my craft room won't be ready for a while. In the meantime I thought I'd create a hanging plaque to go on the door, as a reminder of what the room will be for! This idea could be adapted for any theme, so I thought I'd share it with you today.
First I took a piece of thick chipboard (8"x8") and some patterned paper. I also decided what I wanted the plaque to say, and chose this wooden word from Hobbycraft, and the quilted word from Prima.
I covered the chipboard with the patterned paper and punched holes in the top using my Bind it All. If you wanted less holes then a Crop a Dile (or similar hole punch) would work just as well.
I painted the wooden word white, making sure I gave it a nice thick coat. Finally I embellished the plaque. I threaded ribbon through the holes at the top of the chipboard, and tied in a bow to create a hanger. I then added pleated ribbon around the edge, and embellished the centre. Now whenever I enter the room there will be a sign on the door reminding me why I'm in there!
You could adapt this for lots of different themes, but I think it would look great as a nameplate on a child's bedroom door. I hope this has inspired you to have a go at your own - don't forget to link us up if you do!
