Make a state…

image

Good morning everyone…I wanted to show off a little piece of art that I had made a few weeks ago.  It was simple and looks pretty cool!

So how did I do it…

I printed off a template of a state that I wanted to cut out ( this case being Oregon…)

I drew the picture of the state on MDF…this is wood leftover from a previous project my husband and I did!

I took a jig-saw to the wood and cut out the state.

Of-course it wasn’t perfect, so I sanded the edges!

When I was done sanding the edges, I stained the front of the state and added some paint to the edges. 

I finished it off by adding some twine to the back of it as a hanger!

If you are curious as to how I made the art piece above the cut out state go here.
