How to make your own doorhanger

February 25, 2012
Finally, I have my own office! But unfortunately it has a door!

And that door is used by my kids, to drop in all the time. And then they ask me questions like: 'What's for dinner?' or 'Where are my socks?'
Sure, I'm the mom, and I usually have the answers, but sometimes I need some peace and quiet to work!

So I put on my thinking cap to come up with a solution. And I found it: a doorhanger! I'll hang it on the door knob when I don't wanna be disturbed. And since I'm on a budget, I'll make my own.

Create your own door hanger

You can buy door hangers, but it's cheaper to make one yourself. Using Google I managed to find a blank door hanger, which I then pimped to suit me. You can see the result on the left.




How to make your own doorhanger?
  1. Print this blank picture of a doorhanger by clicking on 'print'.
  2. Write your own message on it.
  3. To make it kidproof laminate it.
Slightly more advance method
  1. Upload the image of the blank doorhanger to photobucket.com.
  2. Add text, and images you like.
  3. Print the thing!

Do you have an office, or your own personal space in your home?

  1. LOL the things we do out of necessity. I can already see that I'll need one once my boy knows what it means. Cool brilliant idea

  2. This is a REALLY great idea! I'm actually about to create a few "mommy look at me now" cards. Maybe I'll give my kiddo 6 each day, so those are the only times I will actually drop everything I'm doing should he call me.

    You know that 90% of the time, kids just say the most trivial things :)

  3. Ha! This is so funny. If you could invent some form hermetically sealed forcefield you'd be rich. Sometime I'm desperate for just 5 quite minutes!

    1. Aargh! That's even worse than having a door! Perhaps an iron curtain?

  8. I have an office but it has french doors that don't lock. I have tried about 20 different ways of keeping this thing shut and my 17 month old can open them all. He can't read yet but I will be using this when he is older.

    1. Sounds like your 17 month year old is very inventive! I hope a doorhanger will be able to stop him!
