Cut With Jigsaw, Then Sand Edges
Place traced plywood directly onto sawhorses to ensure a stable, level work surface. With jigsaw plugged into extension cord, cut out tree silhouette using the tracing as a guide. Use palm sander to smooth edges of plywood.
Position plywood silhouette on top of a drop cloth, then use paint roller to add two solid coats to surface. Allow approximately 1 hour dry time between each coat. Next turn plywood over and paint opposite side. Once opposite side is dry, add two coats of paint to the edges.
On the back side of the tree silhouette, add C-hooks around the perimeter roughly 2 inches in from the edge.
