I'm Praying Door Hanger

With three girls in the house, life gets crazy with people coming in an out of various rooms, so it gets a little hard to concentrate sometimes.  I believe that children have a honing device instilled in their bodies when they are born.  When you are cleaning or doing something boring to them, they are lost somewhere in the house.  But as soon as you pick up the phone to call a friend, or finish wudu and get ready to pray, they find you.

So today we made this little door hanger to put on the outside of the door when you need privacy.  Here is how we made it.

Hand made paper
Wood door hanging sign
Rub on letters & butterflies
Chalk inkpad
Mod Podge
Sponge brush
Wood stick

Cover the door hanger with Mod Podge and made sure it's light.  Place another layer of Mod Podge on the back of the paper and put the paper on the door hanger.

Tear off the paper from the door hanger.  We also took a little bit of sandpaper to even out the edges.

Use the ink pad to give the edges a little bit of color.

Lay out the rub on letters and butterflies to make sure everything fits.  Use the wood stick to rub the letters onto the door hanger.
We were going to put 'Come In' on the other side, but to be honest, the letters we bought were not that great.  As you can see, the y and the g are missing parts.  This was our second attempt at cutting them out and putting them down.  So make sure you don't use Kathy Davis Glitter Rub on Letters.  None the less, we're going to try other letters for the other side.

Whatever letters you do end up using, make sure to cover the end result with another layer of Mod Podge to protect everything.

I pray this sign might give you a few moments of peace with Allah :)
