Intro: Legend of Zelda: Sign
"Simply divine! Impeccably fine! Gorgeous design! Notably kind!"
Sign-lover from The Legend of Zelda
This is an instructable on how to make the roadsigns from The Legend of Zelda. The sign I made is specific for The Ocarina of TIme, but all the signs are pretty much the same.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
All you need is:
Wood-looking Sticky Decals
2 toilet paper rolls (or pvc pipe, I used really hard, skinny rolls)
1 Shoe box, the shorter the better.
Step 2: Make the Post
Simply duct tape the two rolls together (see pic) and then cover with the sticky decal-paper-stuff. (if there are wrinkles in it, its okay, it makes it look more like a stick.)
Step 3: Make the Sign
Now take your box, unfold it, and turn it inside out. Then cover all sides except the bottom with the wood- paper-stuff.
Then make a border around the edges of the bottom using a brown crayon and a brown marker. The border should just be a slightly messy line about an inch away from the edges. Next, look at the last picture on this page and make the writing on your sign look like that using a black sharpie. Then, using your crayon, lightly make stripes along the sgin, making it look more wood-like.
Step 4: Connect
Now fond the center of the top and bottom of the sign (with the written-on side being the front.) and make a hole there slightly smaller than your post. (see pic) Then stick the post through the two holes, leaving an inch sticking up out of the top.
Step 5: Photoshoot
Now dress up like Link, make a Navi, and take some pics!
