Corrugated metal to wood attachment

I'll start off by saying that I'm extremely new to woodworking. I did grow up around it as it was my dad's favorite hobby, but I didn't show any interest in it till here lately. I'm looking to make a sign similar to the one shown in the attachment. I have some whitewashed wood that I'm looking to use that is .5"x3.5"x24". What would be the best way to attach the corrugated metal to the wood from the back? I'm not wanting anything to be seen from the front. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would just use self taping sheetmetal screws.

Steve's suggestion is probably the best or you can get wood strips already cut to the profile of the corrugated metal where roofing is sold.

Thanks y'all. I appreciate the help. Like I said I'm new to this and just kind of fumbling my way through it. My dad gave me all the tools in his workshop and I figured now was as good of time as any to get started learning.
