Cut Wood to Size
Start with a 2x8x8 plaque that from a home supply store. Then, cut a few more copies in the same size. If you don’t have a saw you can purchase your wood at a home supply store and have them cut it there for you. The pieces are about 10" long.
Attach a dowel cap from a craft supply store to the top of a wood piece.
Paint the Wood
Take the frame with the attached dowel cap and the decorative wood pieces to a well-ventilated area and apply a few coats of spray paint to all. This project uses Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover 2X in Canyon Black and Heirloom White.
