I don't remember where I got this idea but I am always looking for ways to use scrap pieces of wood since we seem to have a bunch. I wonder why?
What you will need:
- scrap wood
- sand paper
- paint and paint brush
- bible verse of your choice
- tools or whatever else you see fit to destroy the wood a bit
Next, give the plaque a destroyed look. I did this by taking a hammer and banging on it. I also used a chisel to make the sides uneven. (When I did this, it made Jared a little nervous as I was using the chisel the wrong way.)
Then pick out or mix a paint color you like and paint the piece of wood.
After it is completely dry you can add you bible verse. To be honest I don't have a great way to do this because when I tried to use a very small paintbrush the lettering smudged too much. So what I ended up using was a snapped in half toothpick to paint on the lettering and verse. This worked pretty well for me. I do have to give Jared the problem solving credit since he came up with the toothpick idea.
Here is a picture of the finished project.
