D-I-Y: Fort Wilderness Privacy

We all love projects; gardening, cooking, scrapbooking, building, anything to pass the free time between work and trips to Walt Disney World. Today is the first Main Street Gazette D-I-Y. For the uninitiated, that usually stands for Do-It-Yourself, but that doesn’t quite have the pixie dust ring to it, so we’ll consider our D-I-Ys to be Disney-It-Yourself.

I thought we would start small with a door hanger. For this project you will need scissors, a copy size piece of cardstock, glue/paste/liquid cement, and an exacto knife (PARENTAL ASSISTANCE REQUIRED, call it a family project, if you will, as I hope that you will work as these projects together). As well, you’ll need a love of the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground, because that is where our Privacy sign comes from.

Print the image below on a single sheet of regular copy paper.
Cut around the outside edges of the entire image.
Adhere with glue/etc. one half of the image to the edge of the piece of cardstock.
Fold image around to the other side of the cardstock and adhere with glue/etc.
After the glue/etc. has set cut around the outer edge of the door hanger.
With PARENTAL ASSISTANCE use the exacto knife to cut out the interior blank space (shaped like an upside down lightbulb).

There you have it, your own piece of Fort Wilderness for those times when you need to get away from it all and take a nap, need some peace and quiet for research, or just to look at occasionally as a friendly reminder of your next trip to Walt Disney World. I hope you enjoy this project as much as I enjoyed the project of putting the project together for you. Until next time, make some time to Disney-It-Yourself.

I love this! I hope there are plenty more D-I-Ys to come from you, Ryan. This is going to be something fun I can work on until I get back to the Mouse in September!
