NO Soliciting Wreath




Pin It
 If you're like me, you hate dislike very much door-to-door salesmen. I've always wanted to put up a "No Soliciting" sign but I think they aren't very attractive. I threw this together and I LOVE IT!! It was super easy too.

I bought a Styrofoam wreath at the Dollar Store.
Cut long strips of fabric about 3 inches wide then
wrapped the fabric around the wreath and hot glued some spots to keep it in place.
Made some fabric rosettes and a simple flower and hot glued them on.
I printed (on carsdstock) the "No Soliciting" sign at Anything but Perfect and covered it with clear tape (so it'll last longer). I don't have time to go have it laminated so this was my quick, free alternative.


To hang it to the door: I took an extra scrap of fabric and looped it around the fabric on my wreath and tied a knot.

To stick the sign on: I stuck a thumb tack in the back of the sign so it'll stay on the wreath.
*Add some hot glue between the sign and wreath to prevent it from flying off on a windy day.

Bring on the summer salesmen!!!

  3. WOW! This is super! I'm actually passing it on to one of the stores in our small town. She gets solicitors all the time. This would look great on her front door.
