Now for something a little quirky, or should I say quacky 😎 Coming down the stairs in our little round house can be tricky if you’re over 5’11. The ceiling is quite low and you’ll need to duck to avoid bumping your head. We needed a sign to warn all our tall friends but the ones you can buy are a little too boring, so we made our own using one of those rubber chickens that go “boop, boop” and some pallet off cuts. Those chickens drive our dogs mad, I don’t think they like the sound.

Cut and sand the pallet off cut and then stain or paint it. We did a mock up of the text on the laptop using a LetterPress font we found on The Graphics Fairy.  To transfer the letters to the wood we used GHiANT’s Transfer Spray. I love this stuff, it’s like carbon paper on steroids – just spray it on the back of your image, wait for it to dry (about 5 minutes) and trace. It doesn’t smudge, it’s super easy to use and it really goes a long way.

Transferring the text

We used a Sharpie to color in between the lines and lightly sanded the letters to make them look worn.  To attach the duck, aka rubber chicken, we drilled two small holes on either side of the duck’s neck and used fishing gut to hang him up. At this point he was going “boop, boop” and the dogs were going nuts.
