This cute holiday plaque was so easy to make. Here is what you'll need:
12x12 Board (I got mine at Roberts for $3)
12x12 scrapbook paper
mod podge/foam brush
I first painted the wood a dark brown and then I mod podged the green paper to the wood. Don't trim the paper to size, leave just a little edge of the paper (atleast an 1/8 of an inch) hanging over the edge of the wood (the board says its 12x12, but it was really only 11 3/4 square). Then using the sandpaper, sand the edges of the paper off by sanding along the edge of the board and the excess paper will come off in a nice little strip and then your paper will fit your board exactly. I chose to rough up the corners and a few spots on the front of the paper with the sandpaper to give it more of a worn look.
Next I put on the vinyl letters and I cut leaves out of a piece of scrapbook paper and glued those on. Then I mod podged over the top of everything.
Last of all, I added ribbon (using glue dots) and a little jewel where the ribbon crossed over itself to get the finished product and voila! A super easy decoration!
