DIY Railroad Sign

3 Materials
1 Hour
Do you know a train fanatic? I do! My son loves trains so I decided to make him a custom railroad crossing sign. It was super easy and looks great in his room. Here's how to make your own!
Take 2 pallet boards and create the X of the sign. Using a nail gun, put a nail into the center to hold the pieces together. Put a light coat of white satin spray paint over the wood.
Buy some letter stencils to add the words to the sign. Use a sharpie to make the lines so it shows up on the spray paint.
Attach a zigzag hook on the back with a hammer so it hangs nice on the wall. You're finished! Super easy, right? My son loves it so I'm a happy camper. Go to Mommy's Tool Belt for the full tutorial.
