Print out on 2 sheets of standard paper
Use spray glue to attach to poster board
Use scissors to cut notches and tears
Cut small hole for nail near the top and curl back the edges
Antique by brushing on coffee or tea and while wet curl sign edges — let dry
Protect sign with a layer Mod Podge — let dry
Use provided template to cut pieces for nail from foam core
Glue the two pieces that make up the nail body together
Glue nail head on top
Once dry, use fingers to dent and ding nail
Hot glue an extra piece of foam core (roughly 8x10) to the back of the sign for support, make sure backing is high enough to cover nail hole
To hang, hot glue on a paper clip or wire and hang
Attach to tree, post or wherever you like!
