"W" is for Wood Bunting #2 (giant version)

Paint: giant wood bunting

A fast and easy project cut from 1/2" plywood scraps that makes great wall art for any kid space.

Just for scale here's my girl #2 holding the L:

I used 3/8" sisal rope to hang the bunting and simple twine to tie each piece to the rope:

I had made this smaller wood bunting for a new baby boy awhile back:

And now the giant wood bunting perfect for a bedroom wall:

Here's how to make the giant wood bunting:

1. Cut 1/2" plywood into triangle shapes:
* Drill 3/4" holes at top corners too.

2. Paint two coats Behr watermelon, sand and stain Minwax weathered oak:

3. Print out letters to fit.
I used Ariel font at 700 point.
Line up letters onto triangle and trace outline with ballpoint pen using heavy pressure:

4. The pressure of the pen will leave an indent in the wood.
Paint on and inside the indent with white paint:

5. Add sawtooth hanger at center back on each piece.
(You'll need this to hang properly on an interior wall.)

6. Add sisal rope and tie each piece on using twine:

Hang and enjoy.
