It’s morning, I’m in my PJ’s, the kids are at school, the hubby has just left,
I started laundry, made the beds, finished the dishes, and fed the cat.
I’m ready to sip tea and write my post.
I sit down, take my first sip, and there’s a knock on our front door.
I tip toe to the window and peak out.
It’s a stranger, and there’s no way in heck I’m answering the door.
That’s where this DIY Soliciting Sign comes in…
Then there’s Saturday morning.
It’s 10am and we’re in bed.
YES! WE LIKE TO SLEEP IN PEOPLE!
(you can find how I made our door look like stained glass here: Stained Glass Door)
I don’t want my trees cut down.
My driveway doesn’t need to be sealed.
Our lawn is fine with the bugs.
My internet is the worst, but you can’t fix it.
I don’t want cookies, okay, wait, maybe I do.
Most importantly, and I am screaming this at the top of my lungs as if I’m on a mountain top…
I have found my Jesus!
You’re thinking how in the world did she come up with this.
Why use a fan blade to ward off unwanted solicitors?
It’s better than throwing it out, right?
This is how it began…
A couple months ago we replaced our daughter’s ceiling fan with this cool Rustic Light Fixture.
When Rick handed me the parts, I thought they were too good to just throw away.
The fan was broke, but I could use some of these parts.
First, I made this DIY Candelabra Planter out of the lamp shades:
Then I saved 2 of the fan blades for whatever I could think of later.
I’ve always wanted a “No Soliciting Sign”.
Here was my chance!
To make, I unscrewed the gold part and spray painted it black.
Then I spray painted the blade white.
I figured out what I wanted to write, and spaced it out in 3rds.
I used a permanent marker to write freehand.
Then I tied the burlap bow on it.
So, listen up all you SOLICITORS!
Redhead is NOT answering the door!
