A creative D.I.Y. copper frame, hung with a lightweight sign that reads 'Welcome'.

Overview

This easy-to-make D.I.Y. copper frame, hung with a lightweight sign, is a great way to welcome guests to your event and add a bit of bling to the festivities.

Steps

1Make the top and base rails

Keep two full-length pipes aside for the uprights. Use a tube cutter to cut one pipe in half to make the top and base rails.

2Cut the base supports

To complete the base, cut the other pipe into two 250mm front supports and two 350mm back supports.

3Assemble stand

Use elbows to connect the top rail to the uprights. At the bottom of the uprights, use tees to connect back supports, then add elbows to join them with the base rail.

4Join supports and secure frame

Attach front supports to the tees and add caps to the ends. Position the stand with tent pegs around the base to keep it secure, then hang the sign with wire.
