You will need:
- wooden plaque
- 2 wooden pegs
- pva glue
- tester pot
- child’s name or text
Paint the boards front and sides , the pegs leaving the back unpainted and the names if buying mdf ones. You may need to give everything a second coat. Be sure to paint in one direction and use good quality brushes. You can alternatively use a mini roller or a sponge to paint for more even texture. When painting your pegs don’t layer too much on or the leg won’t open.
When dry stick name on central then two pegs either side. I used PVA glue and left to dry for 24 hours. You could also use wood glue, epoxy glue or a hot glue gun for this.
For the name you have options you can write it on yourself, buy ready cut acrylic letters, use felt, paint it on or buy laser cut mdf names and paint.
Hang where you can see your childs beautiful artwork.
The bonus of two pegs is you can hang heavy and big pieces easily on a small plaque or you can hang two pictures for those busy arty weeks we all inevitably have. They also make a great gift and you could leave the legs off for a door sign.
