We have guests coming from the whole world. I thought it would be a fun idea to show the distances on a wooden road sign. It is also a way to let our friends and family know that we are well aware of how far they have come to spend this day with us and that we are extremely grateful!
This is a cheap decoration to make. I only had to buy the wooden pole for the middle, which cost 2,5 euro and the black paint which I just bought at the supermarket in the kids section. The rest was made out of old wooden crates that I found.
Start by taking the crate apart. They are usually stapled together. Use something to lever them out.
I then attached a piece of wood to the table with a grip (I'm not sure what the exact word is=) and sawed one edge creating a pointed edge.
I got 10 pieces of wood all in all. 1 broke when I tried getting the staple out, so in the end I had 9. These aren't even all of the cities I wanted to include, but they are the main ones. Furthest distance: Brisbane Australia.
