Directions

  1. Paint the entire wall plaque using Sheepskin Chalk Paint and a bristle brush.  Let dry.
  2. Sand the entire surface of the plaque.
  3. Cut down Autumn Acorns (plaid) paper to 11" x 3.25".  Use Mod Podge to adhere paper on left side of the plaque, wrapping it down the sides as well. See photo for reference. Smooth out any air bubbles.
  4. Tape down stencil onto the plaque, to the right of the paper strip, using masking/painter's tape.
  5. Using a foam stencil brush and very little paint, apply Barnyard Red paint over the "give" in the stencil.  Do the same using the Bittersweet Chocolate paint over the "thanks".  Apply a second layer of paint over both words if needed.
  6. Once dry, lightly sand over the stenciled words.
  7. Use Mod Podge to adhere patterned papers onto the oak leaves, smoothing out air bubbles.  Use a craft knife to cut around all the curves and edges, and sand paper to smooth the edges.  Lightly apply Bittersweet Chocolate paint to the edges of the leaves.  Punch a small hole near the stems of both leaves.
  8. Wrap twine around the patterned paper on the plaque three times.  Tie the leaves onto the jute, and then tie jute into a bow.  Secure the leaves in place with foam adhesive if desired.
  9. Display.
