Step by Step Instructions

1 Paint board
2 Print template
3 Trace letters onto foam
4 Cut out foam letters
5 Glue letters to board
6 Glue down nuts and bolts
7 Attach hanger
  • Step 1. Paint board

    Take the wood board and paint it your Dad’s favourite colour.

  • Step 2. Print template

    While you’re waiting for the board to dry, print out the DAD’s WORKSHOP template, which you’ll find below.

  • Step 3. Trace letters onto foam

    Cut the letters out of the template with your scissors and trace them onto the foam card. 

  • Step 4. Cut out foam letters

    Now use your scissors to cut all the letters out of the foam card. 

  • Step 5. Glue letters to board

    Next, glue the letters to the painted side of your board to make up the words.

  • Step 6. Glue down nuts and bolts

    Take your nuts and bolts and glue them down around the words and leave to dry. 

  • Step 7. Attach hanger

    Finally, take a picture hanging strip and stick the Velcro sides together. Peel the back off one side and stick the hanging strip on the back of the board. When Dad’s ready, he can peel the back off the other side and stick the sign up in his shed. This is just one design, but you can come up with your own.
