Welcome to Expo International’s Blog, glad you have stopped by. Donna Budzynski here to share a cute child’s name plaque. Whether you are decorating for a new born or an older child, a name plaque is a must! For the infant it is just cute and for the older brother or sister it is to let others know who’s bedroom you are about to invade!
I have chosen to use an applique as my main focus. Appliques don’t always have to be used in the way they were made to be used. I am going to show you today how cute an applique can be using it in a new way.
You Will Need:
Wood 8” X 10”
Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive
Beacon Fabri-Tac Adhesive
Paint & Brush
Fine Line Black Permanent Marker
1.Gather all supplies
2.Trim paper to size.
3.Pencil sketch name and room onto paper, paint and let dry. (Photos 2 & 3)
4.Outline all letters using fine line permanent marker.
5.Trim coordinating paper ½” X 8” and adhere to top and bottom of plaque using Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive.
6.Adhere applique Flowers and Stacked Animals using Beacon Fabri-Tac.
7.You can add a hanger or display on a stand.
Isn’t this a fun way to use appliques?
I am just tickled pink on how cute this turned out!
Simple, quick and fun!
I sure hope you enjoyed this and give it a try!
