My kiddos love to make things for their room and they especially love making things to hang on their doors… drawings, paintings, crafts etc. I think it gives them a sense of pride. They had never made a personalized door hanger though. You’ve probably seen those cute wooden kids door signs that have a child’s name on them. Those name plaques are very cute but can be pretty pricey. And let’s face it, the kids don’t care about the prices of things! So we decided to raid our craft tub and make our own personalized bedroom door signs with supplies we had on hand. My kids had a blast and now have “name door signs” as they call them!
DIY Bedroom Door Signs For Kids- Full Craft Tutorial
You just need a few basic supplies for these children’s bedroom door signs. They are super easy to make and they are great for a girls room or a boys room.
Supplies Needed For Childrens Bedroom Door Signs:
- Foam Sheet (Cardstock, Posterboard, or a lightweight precut wood strip would work as well)
- Glue Stick or double sided tape (if using wood, you will need wood glue)
How To Make Personalized Door Signs:
Start with your foam sheet and cut out a rectangle. It can be small or large…whatever size your child wants for their personalized door signs. After you have your rectangle, it’s time for the beads but before my kids started gluing, I wrote out their names so that they could easily know where to place the beads.
My daughter grabbed a dot marker and added some dots to hers before the bead gluing started. It is always fun to see what unique designs they come up with.
My kids mixed and matched beads and just made it their own. Feel free to work with whatever type of beads you have! Let their creativity run wild! Isn’t that the best?! They swiped their beads on the glue stick before placing them on the DIY door name signs.
Once the beads are all on and their name is now all beads, it’s a great time to consider the mounting options for your name door sign.
You could tape it directly to door to have a more similar appearance to a wooden name plaque. Or you can tape on the cord for the personalized door hanger look.
Once that’s done, you can use command hooks and or tape to hang the kids room signs.
This is a great quick and easy craft to add a little personalization to your child’s bedroom door! My children love their room door signs. Does your child enjoy making name crafts for his/her room?
