I made this by following instructions from PeterP_DIY.

Thanks Peter

Step 1: Template

Make a template using cardboard or if your feeling confident draw straight onto check paper. I used one of my son's old maths book.

Step 2: Use Exterior Wood

Cut your exterior wood to size and paint with exterior paint. Leave to dry for at least 1 day.

Step 3: Test Run

I did a test run on scrap wood to make sure the holes were not too close together. It actually took me 3 tests to get it right.

Step 4: Time to Drill

Place the check paper on top of the wood and drill your holes through the paper.

Step 5: Final Step

Remove the paper and drill the screws into the ready made holes. I finished off by using a screw driver as suggested by PeterP_DIY who I got this wonderful idea from. When you use the screw driver instead of the drill you can get them nice and level.

Step 6: Enjoy

Hang in your desired position outside and impress your neighbours.

<p>I truly like your idea using screws to make numbers, I'd like to suggest you<br>look at an art form called pointillism,</p><p><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-6wRSD1-Orm8/TxTk0E_JowI/AAAAAAAAACU/ptVwbj41wPk/s1600/Bob-Marley.jpg" rel="nofollow"></a></p><p></p><p>By using different size screw heads, and nails with different heads,<br> you could do this art form. The different screw heads would<br>would/could give your art a new range of depth. As the way the light would<br>catch the different screw heads.</p><p>Anyway, I really like what you&rsquo;ve done using screws to make your numbers.</p><p>Jack g </p><p>What I am working on is <em><strong>anamorphic</strong></em> optical<br>illusion, </p><p>SORRY the images didn't show up</p>
<p>Thanks Jack, sounds interesting, I'll look into it.</p>
<p>great idea, you might consider varying the depth which create a wave effect,</p>
<p>That sounds great would look really good if you have more numbers as well.</p>
<p>This is really cool. And you can make any kind of sign that you want. All you need is screws.</p>
<p>Thank you, that's true any design would look really cool.</p>
