  • Accent all orange painted areas on the wooden plaque using Stickles Orange Peel…
  • Cover inside portion of your wooden plaque using patterned paper
  • Paint chipboard alphabet and small star gold, apply gold glitter, let dry
  • Paint one Chipboard Star page using black paint (front and back), apply black glitter, let dry
  • Adhere the small gold star on top of the black star, let dry
  • Adhere altered letters to top of patterned paper in center of plaque
  • Using your drill, drill a hole in the lower right section of the plaque about a 1/4 of the way from the center. (you want your star to hang off center)

  • Using a hot glue gun adhere the black boa all around the edge of the wooden plaque
  • Using a hot glue gun create your hanger by attaching the wide orange ribbon, midnight black velvet ric rac to the top of each end of your plaque
