Ingredients

Instructions

  • Cut a thin piece of plywood down to 11" x 24" and paint with orange chalk paint. Allow to dry. Draw a wonky black line along the edge of the sign. Allow your line to be thin in some places, thicker in others for an imperfect look.

  • Cut and weed your Broom Parking design from heat transfer vinyl.
  • If using HTV set your Cricut EasyPress to the right temperature and time for the material. Place a Teflon sheet on top of the carrier sheet. Using heat and pressure adhere the design to the board. Allow the design time to cool and then slowly begin peeling the carrier sheet off. If any part of the design has not adhered add more heat and pressure as needed. Take care not to overheat the design, you can cause the glue to seep out from the vinyl and it won't attach itself.

  • Trim a piece of steel wire to a piece of approximately 8" long. Wrap the wire around the tip of a pair of needle nose pliers to form a spiral. Bend the wire about 2 inches from the spiral to form a hanging hook. Create 3 hooks total. Hot glue to the back, underside of your sign.

  • Drill a hole in the end of your wood dowel just large enough to pass a thin piece of ribbon through. Paint and embellish these broom handles any way you please and allow to dry. Run ribbon or twine through the hole to form a hanger.

  • Place a bundle of raffia around the bottom of the broom handle (without the drilled hole). Use a piece of raffia to wrap around and around the bunch until it is firmly in place. Use hot glue to finish attach the end of this raffia string.
