Project Instructions

  • 1

    Note: instructions and supplies are written as though "Welcome Summer" is the sentiment being expressed on the plaque. If you are choosing a different sentiment, adjust the supplies and instructions accordingly.

    Basecoat front and back of plaque White. Let dry and place vertical stripes of tape over painted area using width of tape for spacing. Lightly paint with Key West. Remove tape.
  • 3
    Create a pennant template in desired size on a piece of scrap paper and cut it out. Using this pennant template, cut out five pennants from assorted fabric squares. Cut a length of jute and fold pennants over jute brushing glue over inside of fabric to secure. Let dry.
  • 4
    Punch out twelve circles from poster board using the 1 inch punch. Punch out seven using the 2-1/2 inch punch.
  • 5
    Paint six of the 1 inch circles Tropic Orange. Paint each of the 2 inch circles in one the following colors: Pink Parfait, Tropic Orange, Key West and Sunny Day. (Tip: since you have more circles than colors, it's up to you which colors you double up on.)
  • 6
    Stencil letters onto pennants and small painted circles using the alphabet stencil in Black.
  • 7
    Stencil desired flower element from stencil onto larger circles in White. (Optional - if you really like the daisies, you can always create your own stencil on scrap paper.)
  • 8
    Arrange large circles onto frame of plaque and lightly mark. Stencil small petal element in Lime Tree around marked areas as shown. Use liner brush to paint stem details.
  • 9
    Glue large circles and two small clothespins to frame. “Hang” banner from clothespins and trim excess jute. Use foam discs to attach small painted circles.
  • 10
    Using the remaining seven small circles, cut fabric circles approximately 1/4 inch larger. Sew with running stitch along cut edge, place circle in center of wrong side of fabric and draw up thread closing the fabric over the circle. Knot and clip threads.
