2. Paint a base coat. Using plain ol’ acrylic craft paint and a brush or sponge, apply a nice, even coat of color to your board. Let dry, and repeat 1 or 2 more times. Let dry thoroughly before continuing.
6. Cut out a word from vinyl. I used my Cricut and the “smile” image on the Mini Monogram cartridge for my plaque, but you can use any method (including free hand!) to generate letters, a phrase, or an image!. Once cut from vinyl, use transfer taper or painter’s tape to apply the image evenly and smoothly to your plaque!
