Your guests may not believe it, but you can easily make this fun wood party sign without lifting a hammer, nail or saw! Who’s the sneaky ninja now?! The secret is using pre-cut garden stakes and a glue gun for assembly. The stakes come with a point, but when glued side-by-side they create a jagged pattern reminiscent of the cool, die-cut edge on the Ninja Party Invitation.
TO MAKE: Most home improvement stores sell pre-cut wood stakes as bundles or individually. For this project you will need one bundle (12 pieces) of 17.5-inch wood stakes and two individual 36-inch stakes. Lay the two longer stakes vertically on your work surface, with the pointed sides down and approximately 6-8 inches apart from each other. Using a generous amount of hot glue affix the shorter stakes horizontally alternating the point from the right to left side. Download our free large number stencils (available in 0-9) and print on 11×17 paper. Using a craft knife, cut out the inner parts of the number to create your stencil. Secure to the center of the glued wood sign and carefully spray paint.
