Recycled Door Design–By Christine & Co.

We meet again CSI Project Readers!  What a pleasure it is to return with another project for you.  I am Christine from Christine & Co. As a crafty blogger, I enjoy recycling things that would otherwise end up in a landfill. After looking through my recycle “pile,”  I came up with this sign for my older boy’s bedroom.  He is coming up on twelve, so I wanted to make something he would appreciate.

I started with these two objects…

Respectively, a piece of scrap wood and the protective plastic thingy from a package of DVDs.  Yeah, that’s me taking the picture–hi.

With a sanding block,  I roughed up the plastic. I know, I know–what did it ever do to me?  Really, I just wanted to make sure the Mod Podge would stick.  After Mod Podging some card stock to both sides, I started flipping through old magazines.  I was searching for some words that would work for the “you-can-come-in-if-you-like” side.

While I was looking for words, I came across a creature that was totally meant to be on the “at-your-own-risk” side. More about him in a minute…

For the wood piece, I used a fun scrap book paper that resembled notebook paper.  Which I felt was appropriate considering he is supposed to be doing his homework in there–ahem.*  I used foam stamps and StazOn ink in stone gray to make the word “enter.”

I punched a hole in the top of my disc with my Crop-A-Dile, in order to tie a piece of leather cord onto it.

I stapled the other end of the cord to the back of the wood.  Here’s that dude I was telling you about…

Oh yeah, there’s no way I’m going in there.   I wrote the words in black marker and tore the paper to make it extra creepy.  I’ve seen his room, trust me–it works!
