One of my friends is slightly obsessed with Soviet history, so she asked me to make her this plaque to hang in her apartment.
The plaque is approximately 18" in diameter, and hangs from a wall screw.
Costs about $10 in terms of primer, paint, and assorted wood, and the installation is a cinch.
Step 1: Find a template
To find a good pattern, I just Googled "hammer and sickle," and found this. Then I just scaled and printed it out in Word. Pretty straightforward I'd say.
