Each letter of the sign is made by painting a wood slice and then joining them together with some raffia.

You will also need acrylic paints – red, white, and blue – as well as a foam brush and a small paintbrush for writing the letters.

Craft Tools

You can buy wood slices with one hole pre-drilled but will need to create a second hole so that each slice can be tied together. You can do this with a craft drill or a woodburning tool.

How do I make this wooden sign?

Step 1 – Drill or burn a second hole into each wood slice – opposite the pre-drilled hole. Of course, if children are making this craft, then drill the holes for them.

Step 2 – Using a foam brush, paint one wood slice each – red, white, and blue and leave to dry.

Step 3 – When the pieces of wood have dried it’s time to paint the letters on:

  • white wood piece: red “U”
  • red wood piece: blue “S”
  • blue wood piece: white “A”

And leave to dry once again.

Step 4 – When fully dry, line the pieces up in order from top to bottom – U, S, A – and tie together with raffia:

  • Tie the bottom of the “U” to the top of the “S”
  • Tie the bottom of the “S” to the top of the “A”
  • Tie a loop to the top of the “U” so that you can hang the wooden sign up.

You could add a raffia tassel to the bottom of the “A” if you like.

And that is your sign complete – easy right?!
