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
Step 2: Trace it out
I did the same thing for the star, which isn't a vital part of the plaque, but still an aesthetic add-on.
Step 3: Cut it out
I just clamped it down and cut around carefully.
Step 4: Sand it down.
The wood had a really ugly color before, and sanding made the grain patterns stand out really well.
Step 5: Make the hanging attachment
To make the hanger, I drilled a hole slightly larger than the hanging screw. Then I used a special router bit that makes hanging slots to make the slot that the screw slides into.
So that the plaque wouldn't wobble on the screw, I stabilized it with the dowel shown below. I used a 1/4" dowel, so I drilled a shallow 1/4" hole down the line of the center of gravity, and glued/inserted the dowel so that only 3/4" would stick out.
