The 5th and final plaque happens to be my personal favorite. This isn't my own idea. I saw this on Debbie Doo's. I fell in love with her scrap wood twine mason jar art.
Since I had a smaller piece of wood to work with the silk flowers that I had were all too big. When I received a belated birthday bag of goodies from my friend Debbie I found a package of little flowers that were perfect. Some wire for the stems and some greenery picked off of silk flowers I had and I was good to go.
I realized after I glued in the spanish moss that I had forgotten to add the ric rac that she had used in hers. I decided I liked it without it though. I have another one of these started and I'm not sure if I'll use the same flowers or if I'll make yo yo flowers for it.
Getting the look for the background was pretty easy. I started by painting the whole thing with a tan colored paint. Then I randomly painted spots of blue and red. When that was dry I painted white over the whole thing. Again after drying I sanded to reveal some of the different colors under the white. I finished it off with some distress stains around the edges
I didn't think this one needed any words. It looked good just the way it was
