fall floral welcome plaque

Step 1
Begin with the sign. Click here to download the template and print out on 11" x 17" paper, or select “tile” when printing, and cut/tape the pieces together to make the pattern.  
Step 2
Lay the graphite paper graphite side down onto the wood. Position the word onto the wood toward the bottom, right of the pallet plaque. Trace around the word with a pencil to transfer the pattern to the wood. 
Step 3
Paint the word. You will need to apply several coats, as the stain likes to seep through from the plaque. Let dry between coats. 
Step 4
Cut apart the Lamb's Ear bush so you have two nice, full stems. Set aside. 
Step 5
Gather one of the Lamb's Ear stems, one Dahlia and one Rosemary. Bundle them together with the Rosemary on the bottom, then the Dahlia, and work in the Lamb's Ear. Wire them together and cut off the long length of stems. Repeat so you have two bundles. The first one should be have a little more “drape” to it than the second one. 
Step 6
Cut the head off of the remaining Dahlia, along with two leaves. 
Step 7
Arrange the first bundle, with more drape, onto the left side (as you are facing it) of the wood, then the other bundle on the right side of the wood. Because you are creating an asymmetrical composition, position the left side first so that it flows nicely around the first letter of the word. Hot glue in place. 
Step 8
Arrange the other bundle on the right of the sign over the word. Hot glue in place. 
Step 9
Position the flower head in the space where the two bundles come together, near the center. Glue into place, then glue a leaf on either side of the flower head.
