Sunflower Plaque

            Sunshine Plaque

Material List:
SPC Wood Plaque
Americana Gel Stains Oak Color
Paint brush
Golden Glass Bead Beads
Golden Hansa Yellow Med.
Golden Open Green Gold
Painting Knives
Sunflower Stencil #30181692
Posca Paint Pen
22 Gauge Silver wire 34 inches long
2 Eye hooks
Orange & Yellow beads from the soup
Round nose pliers

Stain the plaque with the Gel oak stain.  Let dry and make sure to stain the back too.
When dry tape the stencil onto the wood plaque.

Mix the Glass beads and your yellow paint together. When mixed well take the painting knife to apply on top of the stencil. Give it a good amount to the sunflower.
Mix the Glass beads and the Green gold paint together.  Apply to the board. On the leaves use more mixture. By putting more mixture on the leaves, it will pop them out more
Set aside top dry. May take over night to dry.

When Dry, then write (you are my sunshine). You can come up with something else.

Screw in the eye hooks to the top of the plaque. One on each end.
Put the wire through the eye hook. Leave an 8” piece at the end, then wrap around the eye hook three times.
Start to put the beads onto the wire. When you have about 18” inches of beads put the wire though the eye hook and wrap around three times.
Put beads on both ends of the wire. Leave about an inch to curl with the pliers. Use the round nose pliers, wrap the wire around the pliers and keep rolling the wire up until you it the last bead on the wire. When done twist the wire with the beads on it to curl a little too.


Enjoy and have fun with the Glass beads. It looks real great on Journals, Notebooks, bookmarks, paintings and on wood boxes.
