We are a no shoe household and what I mean by that is if you live in our house you take off your shoes before you come in the house. So I by no means expect a guest in my home to take off their shoes (unless they have been playing in the mud). I am mainly just trying to cut down on the dirt that comes in our home by us not wearing shoes.
For the boys, the shoes they wear the most stay in the car or diaper bag so we take their shoes off before we get them out of the carseat and usually don't put them on until we get to destination because we will have to put them on again anyways. So we do it for them so they don't need a reminder and hopefully it will just become a habit for them when they get older. I don't need a reminder because mopping as often as I do is reminder enough. My husband is a different story, as soon as he opens the door I am saying "take your shoes off". So I felt he needed a sign to remind him so I made this sign for the entrance to our home from the garage.
I had all the stuff that I need for this project on hand.
wooden plaque from Hobby Lobby
spraypaint- I used Black Satin finish
vinyl cut by my Silhouette for the letters
photo of my sweet boys feet at 2 months old
photo corners that I had from my scrapbooking days
3m hook(you can obviously use a nail though I just didn't want to put a hole in my door)
-Spraypaint the wooden plaque.
- Apply the vinyl lettering.
- Mod Podge the picture on to the board.
- Stick in the picture hanger to the back and tie on ribbon.
- Hang on the door.

Tip Junkie did a post on the subject.
Some of my favorites were:
If you're not God or George Strait, take off your boots.
Life is full of choice, take off your shoes or scrub the floor.
Please remove your shoes and don't take better ones on the way out.
