What You Will Need
This is my basswood round that Walnut Hollow supplied
Step by Step Instructions
1 – I started by stenciling my letters on to the wood
2 – Using the wood burner tool I outlined the letters to add detail and depth.
3 – I then painted the basswood surface with a thinned white acrylic paint to give the board a whitewashed look. Add a little water to your paint until you get the paint consistency you like.
4 – I used watercolor pencils to add bright colors and give it a fun, festive look. You can use paint if you prefer. Just use your imagination and create a design you like.
5 – I added a rope hanger so the OPEN sign can be hung on a door or wall depending on the look you want.
