What you see is not all you get with these adorable driveway markers. By day, the plaques add color and a decorative touch to your yard. At night, the signs shine as beams of approaching headlights bounce off the reflective-tape moon and stars.
- Wood (we used scrap lumber, but you can also use wooden plaques from a craft store)
- Acrylic paints
- Reflective tape (Duck brand used)
- Wooden stakes
- Hammer and nails
- Download templates for the signs shown here, or create your own design. Lightly trace the pattern on the wood, then paint.
- When the paint is dry, cut moon and star shapes from the reflective tape and apply them to the plaque.
- Use the drill to make pilot holes in the stake (a parent’s job), then screw the stake to the back of the plaque
- To prevent the twigs from splitting, create pilot holes with the drill and a small bit (a parent’s job). Nail the twigs in place. If desired, a parent can instead drill holes in the plaque and insert the twigs, as we did with the owl design.
