This fun summer design not only displays a cute message, but is very easy to adapt to just about any size background. I did my sample on both a single 10” x 16” maple board, and I also used several pieces of maple in 2, 3 and 4 inch widths to give the plaque a more ‘rustic’ effect. This is a great way to use up those smaller scrap pieces of wood that you may have laying around your shop.
I also tried using some of DecoArt’s new Chalky Finish Paint and a crackle medium to make the plaque look weathered. I loved the effect and color! Of course, you could choose any color or finish you wish to personalize your plaque to your own liking. Optional painting instructions are included in the scroll saw pattern to help you make the project as shown in the sample pictures.
