Welcoming Underway

I received a visit from my creative & crafty aunt. One of her first questions to me was, “When are you going to put something on your door, so people can feel welcomed.” I know this sounds like a question coming from my aunt, however, it was more of a statement. I must admit, at first, I was a little hesitant to hang anything on my door except a wreath at Christmas-time since my door leads to an inside hallway. That thought obviously didn’t last long. So we visited our local craft store and picked up a few things to create a door hanger.

Although, my entryway is still in progress, I couldn’t wait to share the lovely door hanger we did. And notice the butterfly? Much like the butterfly in my logo. Did you know that a butterfly symbolizes transformation, changes of the soul. I do think we as humans can relate to life stages of a butterfly, as we are constantly evolving. But that’s a story for another time. So back to the door hanger we made.

The lighting in my building’s hallway is a tad bit dim.

Here’s a closeup with the true colors of the door hanger.

Materials used:
– wood initial lettering
– weldbond glue
– twine
– plastic floral petals
– glittered butterfly clip on
– ribbon
– black door hanger
– velcro to secure the letter to the door

Now, I’m glad we put out heads together and made a door hanger. I ended up needing to hang the door hanger to the side of the peephole so I could successfully see out. (I do use my peephole when I hear a knock at the door, wink.)

What have you done to your door to give you and your guest a welcoming impression when they arrive at your door?
