1. The first thing you want to do is attach your newel post to a wood round. Attach with drilling 2 screws up from the bottom of wood round into the newel post
2. Paint the whole post with a spray paint of your choice
3. Now it’s time to create your sign -first start with deciding what shape you want your sign to be
4. Using a jigsaw cut your plywood piece into your desired shape
5. Using acrylic paint, paint your sign. Let dry
6. Once completely dry take a shiny graphic chart tape & tape it around the sides of the sign for a nice finish
7. Then create the details you would like to put on your sign either with a cricut, stencils, or vinyl & an xacto knife
8. Attach your details onto the sign
9. To finish screw on a flush mount to the back of your sign & to the top of the post. Then hang your sign up on post and you’re good to go!
