Admiring peace posts for years, I decided to make my own interpretation of one.
Here's what you need to make one like I did:
4x4 wood post
letter stencils (or not if you are steady handed!)
Step 1: Choose words and stencil/draw them (with Sharpie) plus additional doodles on your post
Step 2: Use your soldering iron to burn the outline of your words and doodles
Step 3: Paint inside your burn lines (I used acrylic craft paint I had on hand)
Step 4: Dig a hole, set your peace post in the ground and admire!
My 4x4 is an old oak one found on the property, hence the crack. It just adds charm I think. :) We found a can of waterproofing spray and added a few coats once the post was in place.
I think the green flower is my favorite on the entire post.
Place your post somewhere special to send well wishes to all who pass by!
