As promised the instructions for my door sign. It reminds me of a Maypole so I call it My Merry Maypole Keep Out Sign. Also, we can not forget my muse for this project Sage, hence the Sage hues of the ribbon. Please send me pictures of your keep out signs and take a look at a few more I have gathered for inspiration.
Sage Privacy Door Sign
One large curtain ring
A collection of ribbons
2-3 Jingle bells
Cardboard hanging plaque
1. Cut your ribbons to varying lengths.
2. Fold your ribbon in half . Hold the fold of the ribbon on one side of the ring while wrapping around the two ribbon tails and pulling them through the folded arch. Pull tight so that it hugs the ring. Secure it in place by tying a knot where the ribbon meets the ring.Repeat until you have tied ribbon around half of the ring.
3.Thread the bottom of one ribbon tail through the jingle bell and tie a double knot to secure.
4. Spell out your message on the cardboard plaque using the adhesive letters.
5.Using another ribbon, tie on the sign by stringing it through the eye hook on the curtain ring.
Hint and Clues
-Keep in mind you want to attach the ribbons evenly on either side of the eye hook on the curtain ring.
-Be sure the ring you are using is big enough to fit over your door knob.
-Use a collection of thick and thin ribbons cut to varying lengths to create interest and movement.
