Here’s how to make it:

STEP ONE

Sand all surfaces of the wooden sign and yardsticks. Shape folding ruler into a five-pointed star.

Measure and mark the center of each yardstick with a pencil. Drill a pilot hole with the hand drill and then screw in an eye hook.

Measure and mark five points across the center bottom edge of the small sign with a pencil. Drill a pilot hole with the hand drill and then screw in an eye hook.
