I love creating things that can be used for multiple seasons. Taking a plaque I bought for pennies at a thrift store I created this artwork that can be changed out for four different times of the year.
Using 1/4" plywood, I cut pieces to fit on the plaque (which I painted black and distressed). For the lettering, I printed my quotes on paper and sandwiched graphite paper between the word sheet and the wood, tracing the letters with a pen. Using a FINE tipped brush and watered down acrylic paint, I painted over the letters.
Use any piece of metal (not too thick) and use E6000 glue to attach to the plaque. I bought these super strong, super small magnets on Ebay and attached them to the word pieces.
Each quote piece was lightly distressed after I painted the letters and then waxed with clear wax.
I was hard-pressed to find a quote I liked about winter since I absolutely DO NOT like that season so I thought the Winnie the Pooh quote was the best for me! Lots of possibilities with this idea -- seasons, holidays, Bible verses, etc. What would you put on them?
