This is what happens when scrap plywood, a few tools, art supplies and miscellaneous household items are lingering around. The result was adorable yet functional. The artwork was completed with almost the ease of a "paint-by-number" project. Except, well, there were no numbers. :)
That is why I chose a simple design that was easy to duplicate as I am no artist.
I occasionally dabble in crafts, however, so I had all the supplies on hand which made it even better!
I will walk you through the steps of my project, but you can use an original design, or any photo, poster, or other traceable item to complement your own decorating style.
Step 1: Gather necessary items
- Plywood- approximately 18" long
- Dowel 3/8" diameter-cut into 4 pieces
- Chop saw or table saw or hand saw
- Drill and bit
- Wax paper
- Paints (acrylic)
- Water for brush
- Craft or paint brush
- Sponge (unused)
- Paper plate
- Clear coat spray
- Picture or idea to personalize the holder
