Surprise your guests on arrival with a home-made wooden welcome sign. Start by writing a word of welcome, such as ‘hello’ or ‘welcome’ on some paper and decide where you wish to insert your nails on the wooden board. Then transfer these points onto the wooden board and use them as a guide to knock in your nails. Wind some string around the first point and continue weaving it around the nails to create your text. Add one more nail in underneath your text so that you can hang a candle from it.
