Things You'll Need

  1.     Cardboard
  2.     Posterboard
  3.     Staples
  4.     Wood Glue
  5.     Wooden Rod
  6.     Markers/Paint

Let's go ...

Determine an appropriate message for your protest sign. Simple and concise messages work best. Messages too long may not be legible at a distance. Acronyms tend to be an effective means of promoting messages, particularly if you can come up with a creative acronym using the initials of the group/event you are protesting.

Purchase the materials needed to construct your protest sign. The recommended method of construction is to use a piece of cardboard sandwiched by two pieces of posterboard, on which you will write your message. This is effective for its sturdiness; the cardboard center allows the sign to withstand wind.

If you don't have a ready made sign, you can write or paint your message on your sign, prior to constructing it. Use a marker to make block letters that will be easy to read from a distance. If you decide to use colors other than black, make sure the colors are not too light. Colors such as pink or yellow will be very difficult to read.

 Sandwich the cardboard with the two pieces of posterboard and staple the top and sides. Do not connect the bottom initially. Add your rod to the bottom center of the board and glue both sides to it. Let the glue set, then staple the parts of the board leading up to the rod.
