Tie Rope

Cut two pieces of 3/16” clothesline rope at six feet. Tie a knot on one end of each piece of rope. Slide each rope through each of the two pre-drilled holes of one wood dowel. Tie a knot in each rope as tight and close as possible to the dowel. Repeat for the remaining 14 dowels. Cut any excess rope after you tie the last knot.

Stencil Monogram

Place a lettered stencil organically on the lower right third of the mat, and trace using a pencil. Using a detail paintbrush, paint inside of the pencil marks with gold paint. Let paint dry overnight.
