You may have noticed that I kind of have a thing for deer. I’ve used this graphic on a lot of stuff, from blankets to t-shirts. When I saw this art project on Lowe’s Creative Ideas online magazine, I knew it I needed some deer silhouettes on plywood!
I had some 1/4 inch plywood scraps in my garage, so I got to work! This project is super easy, and pretty self explanatory. I printed out my design onto some cardstock and cut it out with an exacto knife. Using spray adhesive, I attached my deer to my pre-stained plywood, then sprayed over it with red spraypaint.
It’s still rustic, what with the design and the wood grain, yet modern at the same time with the clean lines and glossy red paint. After I peeled up the painted-over cardstock, they looked like some really nice stickers. So, I popped them onto an old sign, and doubled my impact!
It’s just your typical hobby store plaque, and I wasn’t really sold on the design. I liked the scrolls, but since I’m not really a believer in the whole “my partner is my BEST FRIEND EVER!” idea, I wanted to change it. I like this much better
