Ginger Snap Crafts: take a look {No Soliciting Sign}

take a look {No Soliciting Sign}

I've had this magnet/clip board
hanging in my pantry for awhile.
It's a little unorganized looking,
so I decided to re-do it.
This time I got a two for one!
Yes, this one clipboard has
 now become two things!
So {Part One} is today,
you'll have to come back
Thursday to see {Part Two}.

In our neighborhood we
get a {TON} of solicitors.
It's kind of annoying!  Grrrrr!
So, I've been wanting to make a
"No Soliciting Sign" for awhile now.

Here's how I used my {old} clipboard
to make a {new} sign!

Here's how the clipboard looked all cleaned off.

Here's the supplies I needed for both projects:
(Remember you'll have to come back
Thursday to see my new clipboard.)

staple gun and staples
black paint & paint brush
mini cloths pins
wire mesh
vinyl lettering
hot glue
frame from the Dollar Store

I removed the chicken wire
& metal sheet from my old clipboard.

I cut a "No Soliciting Please" sign with my Silhouette.

Then I placed my vinyl lettering
in the center of the sheet metal.

I slowly removed the transfer tape.

Then I hot glued the sheet metal to the back of the frame.

I cut a piece of ribbon about 10 inches long.

Then I staple gunned the ribbon to the back of the frame.

There you go!
All done.
{So, you think it will work?}

  1. Very nice! I love it!
    You might not get solicitors, but you'll probably have more knocks on your door now... your neighbors will be asking you where you got the sign :)

  2. Such a cute idea- I love that it isnt an ugly way to tell people to cut it out! If I was a soliciting, and saw that, I would leave with good feelings :)

  3. Love it! A nicer way of saying dont knock on my door!

  4. or don't ring the doorbell when the baby is asleep! ;)

  10. That's the nicest way to tell solicitors to get lost that I've ever seen! Love it!

  11. Oh wow! That turned out really cute too! Love your blog!

  12. Great idea! I don't mind the sales people as much now that my kids don't nap, but they sure were annoying (and apparently oblivious to the sign we installed right over our doorbell!).

  13. Great idea! I like the magnetic element!
