I’m pretty sure I at least previewed this wall hanging in one of my previous posts but now it’s finally Finished! And I am pretty happy with the results. I hope my son-in-law likes it!
I am out of town at the doctors today, so I rushed yesterday to get this ready to post!
I found a pattern I liked online, traced it onto my wood (I used 3/4 inch Pine) and then cut it out.
I made a “Stain” by mixing black acrylic paint with water. Probably a 9:1 ration or water to paint. You can always add extra coats to darken it instead of trying to lighten it!
I applied that to the wood and let it dry.
I took it outside and gave it a coat of spray on sealer.
And then I had to decide what colour I wanted for a backing. I sent Kim a text yellow and then red behind it…. we chose the red.
I traced the shape onto the red card stock and then cut it out. I used just plain white glue to attach it to the back of the cut out and then applied a saw tooth hanger and it was done!
Another gift to mark off my To Do List!!!!
