“This Old Man is sleeping door hanger” is the perfect Father’s Day gift for the dad who could use a little extra rest.
This fun and thoughtful craft project is a great way to show dad how much you care about his well-being and relaxation.
Plus, the door hanger serves as a reminder for others to not disturb him while he’s napping, ensuring that he gets the rest he deserves.
To make your own “Dad’s Sleepy Door Hanger,” you’ll need a few simple materials:
- One wooden door hanger
- Black, white, and yellow acrylic paints
- A small detail brush
- A medium brush
- A black permanent marker or paint pen
- Finishing spray (optional)
To begin, lay out your wooden door hanger on some newspaper to avoid any messes. Then, use a medium brush to paint the entire door hanger black and allow it to dry on both sides. Next, use your small detail brush and white paint to write the words “The Old Man Is…” on the hanger. For added style, mix together a bit of yellow and white paint and use the flat end of a paint brush to dot the letters.
Use your small detail brush to paint on a yellow crescent moon and some “ZZZZ” at the bottom of the hanger, highlighting with white paint. Finish off the hanger by adding some yellow stars in open spots at the top. Once everything is dry, use your black marker to trace around the letters and add details to the moon shape.
For an extra polished look, consider using a finishing spray to seal everything in place.
Gift this “This Old Man is sleeping door hanger” to dad on Father’s Day, and he’ll be snoozing soundly in no time.
With this special gift, he’ll be well-rested and ready to tackle whatever comes his way. Have fun with your kids!
