I Heart These Custom Door Signs

Hello hello!!  Wow - what a beautiful day we have here today!  The high is 81 degrees, and there is a beautiful cool breeze and not a cloud in the sky.  My house feels like a wind tunnel because I have all of the windows open - but I LOVE it!  You know what else I love?  These cutey patuty door signs I made for a friend of mine.  She called me awhile back and asked if I could make her some custom name signs to hang on her children's doors.  I had never made these before, but you know me - always up for a challenge!!

I started by paying her a visit (and playdate for our daughters who have been friends since they were in the womb - literally - they are 3 weeks apart).  She had just had all of their rooms re-decorated and wanted signs that reflected the new design.  I toured the new rooms - which are adorable, and took some inspiration pictures to help me with color and theme matching.

Savannah - the oldest - has a colorful butterfly theme, and her palladium window treatment was the perfect inspiration for her sign.

Her door sign has a little extra whimsy - I added some dimension by popping the butterfly wings off the frame.

Lucas - her middle child (and only boy) - has a safari theme.  Super cute and I love the color palette - greens, browns and a bright orange.  I used his hamper as my inspiration:

His sign incorporates the animal theme and color palette.  I didn't want to use ribbon to hang his, so I added some twine instead.

The baby - Brooke - has beautiful room with light yellow and bright pink (my colors of the moment, LOL).  I used her window treatments a well, which has butterflies and ladybugs.  I chose to go with the ladybugs since her big sister has the butterflies.

I was able to use some pink and white gingham paper to really pull though the design elements - and it came out so cute!

I can't wait for her to see them!!  I hope she loves them as much as I do!

Till tomorrow!!  I got sidetracked last night and ended up make a spring wreath for my front door.  Can't wait to share it!
