  • Step 1

    Download and print out the template. We recommend you print it on cover paper as this will provide a great surface for decorating.

  • Step 2

    Decorate the template. We have used coloured pencils and glitter glue. You could also use paint, markers or crayons.

  • Step 3

    Arrange the 3 hands in a semicircle and lay the WELCOME shape in the middle so the fingers are sticking out from behind it. Secure with glue and allow to dry.

  • Clever Tip

    If the paper used has started to curl or is not stiff enough to hold flat, simply glue it down onto a sheet of card and cut out for a sturdy backing.

  • Step 4

    Flip your sign over and use tape to attach a paper straw to the middle of your sign.

  • Step 5

    Wave your sign proudly throughout Refugee Week and celebrate the valuable contribution that refugees make to Australia!
