What You'll Need:

Let's Do This!


Step 1:

  • Use sandpaper to lightly roughen up the paint of the plaque. 
  • If doing with individual materials, instead of kit – mix green, blue, and white paint to achieve a nice aqua color. Paint the entire plaque and let dry before sanding.

Step 2:

  • A) Lay Burlap Ribbon face up. Lay Patterned Ribbon, patterned side down. Apply lines of glue on the back of the Patterned Ribbon.
  • B) Attach Patterned Ribbon to the center of the Burlap Ribbon. 


Step 3:

  • A) Using the width of the instruction sheet as a guide, measure and cut an 8.5" piece of the Layered Ribbon.
  • B) Using the height of the instruction sheet as a guide, measure and cut a 10.5" piece of the Layered Ribbon. 
  • C) Cut Detail Ribbon in half evenly.

Step 4:

  • A) Place the 8.5" piece of Layered Ribbon across the width of the plaque. Position 1/3 of the way down. 
  • B) Wrap both ends around the back and glue to secure. Allow proper time to dry.
  • C) Using half of the Detail Ribbon, tie a pinch in the ribbon as shown. You can hide or snip the ends of the remaining Detail Ribbon.


Step 5:

  • A) Center the 10.5" piece of Layered Ribbon on top of the plaque.
  • B) Wrap both ends around the back and glue to secure. Allow proper dry time.
  • C) Using the second half of the Detail Ribbon, tie a pinch in the center of the ribbon as shown.
  • D) Apply glue to the back of the Cross Charm. Place Cross Charm in the center of the burlap/ribbon cross and allow to dry.

TIP:

  • Attach hanging hooks, wire, or SmartGrip Adhesive Poster Strips to the back of plaque to hang on your wall!
