While camping in the Adirondacks a couple years back, we found a large deadfall Birch with the bark still intact. Needless to say, I was able to salvage two large pieces of bark, one which eventually became this sign. The bark is glued to a piece of scrap OSB, the letters in local Maple branches and then stained with an oil base to help preserve them. I then wrapped the thing with a piece of scrap hemp rope and added a couple knots and lashings (still got a bit of salt in me matey). The little pines were also salvaged from a deadfall log of aromatic Cedar found, also, while camping at Taughanock Falls State Park! We campers are scroungers!
