Sweet Chickadee No Soliciting Sign

Sorry for the lack of posts!  I've been sick with bronchitis this past week (which, I have decided, was a bad idea since Adam's been on Spring Break!).

Anyway, I thought I would share a quick craft I just whipped up.  Since the weather has gotten nicer, our house has been bombarded by door-to-door salesmen of all types!  Magazines, steaks, carpet cleaning, religious inquiries...they're all knockin' on my door.  I decided to make a cute little sign to (hopefully) deter the endless interruptions.

 Here she is!  Cute, simple, and to the point.  I found the wood birdie from this etsy site, painted it a sweet chocolate brown, used a colored pencil to write the words, and glued a ribbon on the back.

Here she is hanging outside by the doorbell; my scarecrow for salesmen.  Crossing my fingers she does her job!

I'm linking up with:


  1. What a cute way to display such a message. I wish I had that on my door Monday when a wouldn't take no for an answer salesman kept bugging me.

  2. Love this! I would love for you to come link up over at my blog! I've got prizes :)

  3. That is super cute!! It's nice that it's cute and stylish and not too rude :)

  4. What a cute bird. I love it. Thanks for sharing at Fun to Craft's Spring has Sprung Party.
