Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for the paint.
  • 2
    Starting from the outer edge of the wood circle and working your way in, use the flat shader brush to paint a layer of True Red, a layer of Buttermilk and a layer of Antique Gold. Paint the remaining section Chalkboard. Each layer can be as thick or as thin as you would like. Let paint dry.
  • 3
    Use small saw to cut dowel down to 6 inch.
  • 4
    Use a piece of scrap paper to make a blob of glue. Stick one end of the dowel into it and hold upright until it cools. This will be the the top of the apple stem and should be the thickest. Continue adding layers of glue. Turn it upright from time to time and see how it looks against the wood circle. Use scissors to trim off any part that doesn't look right. Paint apple stem Burnt Umber when satisfied with how it looks. Let paint dry.
  • 5
    Cut out a leaf shape from the Grasshopper Green cardstock.
  • 6
    Use pencil to write sentiment (as shown, this is Chores) and lines on the chalkboard. Go over pencil markings with liner brush and Antique Gold.
  • 7
    Glue the thin end of apple stem on to the top edge of wood circle.
  • 8
    Glue leaf on to the top edge of the plaque and stem.
  • 9
    Use wire cutters to remove shanks from buttons. Glue these buttons to the wood circle as desired.
