Front Door Decor

Recently, in our whereabouts, there have been some disturbing events that have taken place in homes that have opened their front doors to...
 door to door salesmen/soliciters.

I have wanted to make a NO SOLICITING sign for quite some time.
They are ruthless in these parts.
Just the other day, I had a man stop by and knock for like 10 minutes before giving up and leaving.
It kind of made me uncomfortable so...I finally did it!

I made a sign using supplies I had lying around the house.
-an old picture frame {I painted it.}
-craft paper
-mod podge

In minutes I had the frame painted, the cardboard cut at 8x10 size and cover with craft paper and letters.
I mod podged the top of the craft kind of weatherizes the paper so that when it rains, it doesnt get ruined.

I placed the cardboard into frame and hot glued ribbon onto the back of the frame so I could hang it...

and TA-DA!
An original and personalized 'no soliciting' sign:

I like that it also covers the window in my front door.
No peeking in!
Make your own no soliciting sign and stop potential crimes from being committed.


  1. I would have been less polite... "Take off Hosers!"

  2. Amanda I love it....I need to make another one for my door. Thanks for the idea!
