DIY Door Sign

 Is it obvious that I'm obsessed with DIY crafts yet?? They are seriously my favorite! Here's a little door sign that I made for one of my teaching buddies who is teaching 1st grade this year. {hi!}

Isn't it adorable?! 
I found that over-sized apple during my first visit to Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago! Can you believe that I had never been to a Hobby Lobby before?! It's not my fault, I've always wanted to go! But there wasn't one by me. When I found out one was opening it was like Heaven on Earth! SO.MUCH.FUN!!

Here's what you need to make this door sign:
{why is it sideways?! who knows}
*over sized wooden apple
*paint pen

I always do a rough draft on paper before I attempt to write on the wood because I make a mistake every single time! So after I practice and get it the way I want, then I write on the wood. 

Do one layer with the paint pen, let it dry for about 5 minutes and then go over it again.

Hot glue two pieces of ribbon onto the back of the apple and tie together at the top.

Easy peasy!?

I also made a couple for my blogging friends that I was so lucky to meet in NYC! I love them! {the signs and the girls!}

Let me know if you try this craft!
