These doorknob hangers are decorative and fun to make. You might even want to make several so that you can change your doorknob hanger for each season, for holidays, or "just because."

And when you add the notepad, the doorknob hanger becomes a message center where you can leave notes for your family -- or they can leave one for you.

What You'll Need

How to Make a Doorknob Hanger

Step 1: Refer to the illustration at the right and draw a 4x8-inch doorknob hanger pattern on a piece of poster board.

Step 2: Cut the pattern out and trace it three times on the poster board. Cut out each piece -- you will have four doorknob hangers.

Step 3: Decorate each one to match a season. A summer hanger might have a sprig of flowers with summer bugs crawling up it or children diving into a pool. Leave a space toward the bottom for the notepad.

Step 4: For the notepad, place the self-stick removable notes on the doorknob hanger.

Step 5: Cut a strip of construction paper to make a pencil holder loop. Glue it to the side of the notepad.
