Introduction: Humorous Rope Barometer

I was inspired to build my own Rope Barometer after seeing one at a golf course. 

Step 1: Getting Started

I went to the store and bought some wood but any wood you have around can work. I also bought some rope, I wanted to use natural-fibre rope instead of nylon rope only because I thought it would look better. 

Step 2: Screen Printing the Graphics

I could have used a variety of methods to print on the graphics but I decided to screen print them on. I understand that it is probably the most difficult way but I think it looks the best. Basically I wanted to learn how to screen print too. I bought a screen printing kit from a local art supply store. After reading about the different ways to screen print I decided to use the Photo Emulation method

Step 3: Add the Rope

Simply drill a hole, slip the rope through, and tie a not at both ends. 

Step 4: Clear Coat

I added a clear coat to protect the silkscreen ink from the elements.  

Step 5: Final Project

And here is the final project! I hope you enjoyed this instructable!
