Sesame Street Door Sign

Here is the tutorial for making your own Sesame Street sign. A special thanks to All Things G & D.

Here is the “Welcome” sign that I will use on the door for Olivia’s Sesame Street party. You can print out the Sesame Street Welcome Sign in color on white cardstock and cut around the outer line. I also laminated each portion.  The personalized signs below the welcome sign was easily made using Adobe Photoshop using a Comic Sans font.

I cut about a 8×10 size “O” and “2″ out of foam poster board and covered them in wrapping paper. The easiest way is no add Mod Podge to the number and add the paper. The cut slits in the paper, apply Mod Podge, and fold over.

For the sticks that everything is bounded to: I used paint stirring sticks. Trace the stick on the ribbon of your choice and cut them out. Add a layer of Mod Podge and smooth it out.

I pieced it all together using hot glue.

You can add ribbon to the back to use as a hook or do as I will, and apply a Command strip to the back.

Seseame Street Group Centerpiece

Centerpieces can really dress up a table. I saw a few designs online but ultimately came up with my own design. First you need to make groups of Sesame Street characters. I made groups of three. I laminated them and cut them cut. Use an X-acto knife to get in the tight areas.

Next, I trace a number and letter from Word. I used the arial bold font. I cut the ‘O’ and 2 out of red, blue, yellow, orange, black, and green card stock. Now laminate them.

I will reuse some old vases for the base. I found a pack of alphabets at Walmart for $1. Buy three packs and one pack to each vase. I have some ribbon with polka dots that I will use to make a bow under each group.

Take a dowel and hot glue it to the back of the group, number, and letter. Add your letter to the left, the group in the middle, and the number on the right. Stick them into you vase, add your bow, and your ready to setup your table.

Can You Tell Me How To Get…

Another cute and simple idea is to put Sesame Street character footprints leading to the party area. Olivia’s will lead up the driveway and up the stairs to the front door. I found free printable Sesame Street character footprints (it’s best to print each one on colorful card stock, laminate, and cut out; Big Bird footprints on yellow paper, Cookie Monster footprints on blue paper and Elmo footprints on red paper.

Print out as many as you need and then tape them to the floor as if they are walking footprints.

How Old Are You?

I wanted a number sign to display outside the house. I sketched a number 2 on foam poster board and cleaned up the edges with a ruler. Next take a small circular container and trace circles all over the board. I also added a Sesame Street character to tie everything together.

Next, trace the circles with a black magic marker. I used black paint to fill in the rest of the number.

I found a font online that I liked and used these letters to spell out, ‘cool to be two’.

Cut the letter out and apply them with Mod Podge.

I may also use this as a photo prop later.
