Earlier this week we saw Les Fourmis' Campaign Sign Reuse. They got creative in reusing all of that political signage that's posted during a campaign then generally goes to waste after an election's over. In the days following Canada's recent election, Les Fourmis removed such signs and gave them a new purpose. A few of you asked if instructions were available so you could do this yourself come November 5...

AT reader Eve was happy to oblige. (Thanks, Eve!)

What you'll need:

  • used corrugated plastic campaign posters, precut as diagrammed below

  • hole punch for holes located as diagrammed below

  • plastic ties for cinching the pieces together

  • scissors for trimming the ties when you're done assembling

See shots of birdhouses (and messenger bags) being assembled by Les Fourmis here.
