Introduction: “Do Not Disturb” Sign

Picture of “Do Not Disturb” Sign

Do you want sometimes to be alone? And people stop knocking on the door? If the answer is Yes! here's something for you.... I'm going to show you how to make a sign for your door handle.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

Here's what you need:

1. Cardboard
2. Ruler
3. Pencil
4. Scissors

Step 2: Making

Picture of Making

Use the ruler and the pencil to draw a rectangle and cut it with the scissors. Then draw another rectangle (or a circle) like the picture below. If you like your new sign you can use it like this, but I'm not sure it will hang on every door. Cut a small piece to make the sign hook-shaped. Now it will perfectly fit on any door handle.

Step 3: Design

Write of draw something on the sign. If you can't draw well use Google to find an interesting picture, print it and glue it on the sign. Use your imagination and your sign will be perfect. Look what I did!

What font is the little instructables symbol in?

slu6alka (author)tankguy2009-08-03

The font that I used is Comic Sans MS. The robot, the hand and the name "instructables" are from the logo.

Nice, Rated. You should upload the photo you printed on your sign.

Well, it's not the whole photo, I only printed the words and the pictures on a white paper. The background is an orange paper...
