Embellished Wooden Peace Sign

Embellished Wooden Peace Sign

"Unfinished wooden holiday decorations are a lot of fun to paint and personalize. They can be simply decorated or ornately embellished. Also, unfinished home decor signs or shapes make an inexpensive gift. Don't forget to get the kids involved in helping you complete a group gift. After you have painted the unfinished wooden sign with acrylic paint, plan the placement of the embellishments. Create breathtaking sparkle by applying an abundance of gems. You can definitely "wow" the grandparents or other lucky recipients with a one-of-a-kind gift."

Materials List

  • Unfinished wooden hanging decoration
  • Acrylic paint (white, green, red, silver) paint brush
  • Liquid adhesive
  • Embellishments: Metallic Red & Silver Round Dew Drops and
    Pearl White Diamond Dew Drops (The Robin's Nest)

Instructions

  1. Cover your work surface to protect it from any paint splatters. Paint the wooden sign with a base coat of white acrylic paint.

  2. When thoroughly dry, lightly sketch any guidelines with pencil that will help you paint the details. Paint each letter a different color. One option is to have the sides of the letter a different color than the top color.

  3. Embellish - Plan your design by temporarily placing the Dew Drops until you are satisfied with the arrangement. Consider possibly outlining, filling in, or creating a unique pattern. Even a random mixture of colors and shapes can be very beautiful.

  4. Adhere the Dew Drops in place with clear drying liquid adhesive.

  5. Use Diamond Dew Drops to form a unique pattern. Use five diamonds to form a star shape. Finally, adhere the Dew Drops with clear drying liquid adhesive.

Notes(TIP: Before you move any Dew Drops, take photos to avoid the frustration of being unable to recreate the design from memory. Additionally, taking photos is helpful when you are having trouble deciding between different arrangements or colors. This will allow you to compare designs.)
