I am using a scrap piece of 3/8" plywood that I had laying around my shop, however anything will work great for this project. 1/2", 1/4", even fence wood or pallet wood!
1) I started off by cutting strip of 3". I used my jigsaw just to show that you don't need a shop full of tools to get a project done. : ) I set up a temporary fence using a scrap straight piece of wood.
Note: at this point, my niece asked if she could join me in the shop and I said "heck yeah!"
7) Once the paint was dry, we used the wood glue again to glue the stems on. (Putting small paint cans on top to add weight while they dried)
Don't forget to go check out Linn's project! She made an awesome Fall rustic sign from fence pickets. You can see her video here!
