We recently had our floors re-done in laminate flooring.. There were several left-over planks of various sizes... Here is what I've been doing with them.. They have been well received by family and friends. This is an easy and fun project, a great way to recycle and makes a wonderful gift for family and friends...
Follow my easy steps and you too can have these beautiful plaques for your home.

Step 1: Sand and Prime

You can use a variety of materials to glue onto your plaque.. such as - anything from the internet that you can print, wrapping paper, napkins, pictures and postcards...etc.

Step 7: Brush entire plaque with glue

Brush the entire top of the plaque with the glue.. Glue will go on white but will dry clear..
Make sure to get out any air bubbles caught under the paper... use an old credit card to smooth it out or you can use your fingers... let dry..

Step 11: Sweet Dreams

Here is one I made for the bedroom.... using only paints and letter stencils... Made in under one hour!!!

Step 13: Love Poem

This was a very lengthy poem.. so I turned the laminate vertically.. I made it for my sister, so I added two tiny hooks and attached a sister plaque... I know she will love it!!

Step 14: Embelish

Embelish as you wish..
