DIY Door Hangers

Hi! It’s John and Lindsey Lyons from Our Messy Table blog! On one of our recent trips we were talking about the door hangers that you leave on your hotel room doors. You know, the ones that let the cleaning crew know whether or not to come in. We thought they were so plain and really only made one of two requests so we thought what if we could make our own, but with real requests! Thus the idea for these DIY  Door Hangers! We are huge doughnut and pizza fans but you can personalize them however you like!

Step 1: Your going to need wood so get a 1in. x 4in. x 8ft. This will allow you to cut multiple pieces to have as extras.

Step 2: Make a mark every 6 1/2 inches along your board.

Step 3: Using a circular saw, cut each piece along your lines.

Step 4: Sand all of your wood pieces.

Step 5: Paint each block and let dry.

Step 6: Add whatever design you would like or you could use some classics like “Do Not Disturb” or “Room Service Please.” The world is your oyster here, so have fun with it!

Step 7: Add two screws to the back of each block making sure not to screw them all the way in and also make sure it doesn’t go all the way thru.

Step 8: Tie twine around each screw and cut the excess off the ends.
