With a few craft sticks, some paint, and a lot of imagination, your child can have a personalized door hanger to call their own. This project is simple and it's fun to make.
1. If child's name is too long to fit stickers, paint the name on or use a craft paint pen with glitter glue. 2. Don't trim the tied knots until after the glue has dried. 3. Always supervise children when using acrylic sealer spray. Spray object outside to avoid any fumes.
Lay five jumbo craft sticks on wax paper.
Lay the two regular-sized craft sticks across the jumbo sticks in the opposite direction, one at the top and one at the bottom. This should resemble an old-fashioned snow sled.
Glue the regular-sized sticks onto the jumbo sticks, then pipe glue down in-between each of the jumbo sticks.
Smear the glue between the seams of the jumbo sticks and gently squeeze them to get them close together. Let glue dry completely.
When dry, turn craft stick figure over and paint pink. Repeat for a second coat and let dry completely.
Take outside and spray craft sticks with acrylic sealer, let dry.
Cut a piece of ribbon about 24" long.
Turn dry craft stick figure over and tie each end of the ribbon to the regular sized craft stick at the top of the figure. Be sure to knot the ribbon at the back side.
Dot on some glue to the knots. Let dry.
Turn craft stick figure over again and decorate with foam letter stickers and flowers. For flower centers, glue on buttons.
Use scissors to trim the ends of the tied ribbon hanger.
