the sign dry.
4. To prepare the sign to be able to be mounted you will use the small nails, crafting wire and a
hammer. Turn the sign over and place a pen mark where you will place the nails.
5. Select the length of wire you want to use to hang the sign. I didn’t want the wire to show after I
mounted my sign on the wall, so I stretched the wire taunt across the back before I hammered
in my nails. I used a 26 gauge crafting wire because I already had it handy with my crafting
supplies. To ensure that it was strong enough to hold my sign I doubled the wire over to
increase the thickness. You local crafting store should have several wire gauges available.
6. Take your nail and wrap the crafting wire around it 4 to 5 times. Place the nail on your marked
spot and hammer it in. Repeat on the other side. And that’s it! Choose to display the completed
craft in heavily trafficked areas of you home so everyone can remark on your beautiful sign.
And be prepared to answer “Where did you get that adorable sign?”
The options with this project are unlimited. Make them as gifts for friends and family-personalizing them
for each individual. These signs are so easy to make-and so inexpensive-you may even want to make
2 or 3 for yourself.
