How to Make a Namaste Sign
Greet visitors to your home with a wooden Namaste sign. Namaste is a sanskrit word meaning "the light in me honours the light in you" or "the divinity in me bows to the divinity in you".
What better way to welcome your friends than with a cheery beaded sign? This sign graces the front door of my magic cottage however I do have numerous other signs thought the home and garden with various sayings. Some of them are: "You are Magnificent", "Let your Magic Out", "Peace", "Love", "Joy", "Sit a Spell", "Bliss" etc.
Use any piece of discarded wood. The lumber store has offcuts or bins of wood you can make good use of! I have often received free wood for my projects.
Feel free to further embellish your sign with danglies...such as charms, forks and spoons that have a hole drilled in them. Simply drill holes in the bottom of the sign and attach a piece of wire to your embellishment. •
