So, my (cheap, rational) heart of hearts led me to Home Depot to create a stand for our DIY faux-to booth backdrop. I had searched online for tutorials, but could only find extremely complicated versions involving power tools (and I preferred to keep all of my phalanges attached). Thus, we developed our own method which 1) ended up working out quite well 2) was cheap and 3) was easy to build.
Quick tutorial to make a welcome sign from scraps. They use only ONE screw and the rest Gorilla Glue, but I'm thinking I'd be using a little more permanent fixtures... but that's my $.02 Otherwise - nifty little instructible!
Would be cool to have these around the walking trail with a clip on the top so teachers could put up things their kids are learning about. As they walk they would read short memorization items(names or oceans, continent names, water cycle, etc)
