To put this together first start by printing the Hogwarts Express signage onto A3 paper. [download id=”10790″]

To make it 3D, the signage was sliced down so just a bit of white border was left, and the signage attached to both sides of foamboard.

To finish it off, a long pieces of square balsa wood were attached around the whole border of the signage, both sides, and painted with gold paint.

To attach it to the wall, a metal frame (from memory originally supposed to be shelf support?) was attached to the signage, using a foam sticky tape (serious hardcore holding ability). A hook took the majority of the support, and the foam tape held the metal frame in place.

Attach to black foamboard (glue tape works well) and cut out with an x acto knife.

Attach the foamboard sign to a second metal frame, first with a strip of foam tape. Then to make sure it was solidly attached, I ran black fabric tape around as a strip that attached the foamboard with the metal frame so no wind would knock it down.

Use first foamtape, then wrap with black fabric tape to a black wooden pole.

Stick in the ground, and like in our case, hang a lantern with a flameless candle in.
