DIY Christmas Yard Sign

Place the plaque face-down onto the newspaper. Place the stake face-down onto the back of the plaque, ensuring that the stake is centered on the plaque. Hammer in one nail near the top of the stake. Make sure that the nail does not go through the plaque. Holding the stake steady, nail in the second nail about 2 ½ inches below the first nail.
