Did you miss the cowboy party that we recently did for my dad? If you did, check it out here!
One of my favorite elements of the party was the working saloon doors that I made to really give the experience of walking into a saloon! They were actually pretty easy to make!
2 styrofoam boards from Dollar Tree
“At The Lake” wood scrapbook paper
Everbilt cafe door pivot set
5# Command strips
1. Trace the outline of the top of the door frame. Cut out the top of the door frame using an Exacto knife.
2. For the second door, use the discard from the first door as a template…so they match!
3. Using the hot glue, cover the door on both sides with the scrapbook paper. You will need to cut the paper to the shape of the door as you move up and across the door.
4. When placing the door hinges, you will need to cut the top of the door flat for the hinge to seat properly; follow the instructions/measurements on where to place them on the door.
5. Using the hot glue, place the hinge on the middle of the door…it’ll be narrow so try to center it as much as possible!
6. When hanging the doors, use the 5# Command strips and mount the bottom hinges first. Let set for at least 10 minutes before putting together.
7. After the bottom strips/hinges have set, place the door into the hinge. Place the top hinge onto the door and then use another Command strip to adhere the top part of the door to the frame. Let set for about 30 minutes before use.
8. Walk into the saloon and enjoy!
