instructions

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Using a pencil, trace the paper plate on a scrap piece of paper.
  2. Using scissors, cut out the circle. Roll up a few small pieces of tape and and tape the paper circle to the center of the wood wreath surface. This will mask off this area from paint.
  3. Using a 1” brush, paint the entire wreath with Apple Red. Let dry and apply a second coat if necessary.
  4. Beginning in the center of the place a vertical strip of tape that covers the length of the great from top to bottom. Place pieces of tape on either side of this piece, edge to edge, and continue placing pieces until the entire wood wreath is covered in stencil tape.
  5. Remove every other piece of tape and save them for later (You can hang the strips of tape to the edge of your work table or chair to prevent them from sticking to each other).
  6. Repeat this step placing the tape strips horizontally. You can reuse the tape that you used for spacing in the vertical strips. Remove every other piece of tape. You should be left with a perfectly spaced grid of tape.
  7. Dip the stencil brush in Pure Black and remove some onto a paper towel. This is called “off-loading.” Apply Pure Black to the exposed squares in a dabbing motion, building up the paint until is is solid.
  8. Remove the strips of tape.
  9. Using a 3/4” brush, add water to Pure Black on a plate and mix. Dip the brush in this mixture and paint lines between each of the black squares on the wreath. The thinned paint should allow for some of the red to show through creating the appearance of Buffalo Plaid.
  10. Remove the paper circle that was masking the center of the wreath.
  11. Plug in the Plaid Decorative Wood Burning Tool and turn it on. Allow several minutes for the tool to heat up.
  12. While the tool is heating, find your monogram in the FolkArt Stencil Value Pack- Richmond Alphabet and place it on the center of the exposed wood circle. Tack it on place using a small piece of stencil tape.
  13. Trace the stencil using a pencil and remove the stencil.
  14. Check to see if your Wood Burning Tool is hot by touching the tip of the tool to the back of the wreath in an area that will not be seen.
  15. When your tool is sufficiently hot, trace the monogram pencil outline with the tool keeping it slow and steady. After the outline is traced, fill in the inside of the letter with the Wood Burning Too as well.
  16. Add ribbon, burlap or jute to the holes in the wreath to hang.
