bbq tool holder, grillin' & chillin'

We’re loving this cheeky wood sign that’s also a BBQ tool holder! It’s handy and homemade – the perfect gift for Dad this Father’s Day! Check out our instructions below for a downloadable pattern, and every step you need to make one awesome DIY present!
Step 1
We’ve already created a pattern to make this project even easier for you! Just click here to download it, then choose the “tile format” or “tiling” option in your printer interface so that the pattern prints out at full size. 

TIP: Tile printing allows you to print out a design that’s larger than an 8½ x11" piece of paper, by breaking it up into multiple sheets. Once the sheets have printed, you’ll tape them together to re-assemble the full pattern. Then, cut away any excess paper outside the design so that it’s easier to transfer to your plaque.
Step 2
Next, position your pattern so that it’s centered on top of the round plaque. Then, slide a piece of transfer paper underneath, making sure the graphite side is facing down. Now you can tape the pattern in place on the plaque. 
Step 3
Use your pencil to trace around all of the letters. Press down firmly to make your graphite lines nice and dark. When you’re done tracing, you can remove the pattern and graphite paper.

TIP: Before you remove the pattern, take a peek underneath and make sure all the lines of the design have transferred correctly. 
Step 4
It’s time to paint your letters! Squirt a little of each color onto your paper plate (or palette paper) and then paint in each letter. Let the paint dry. 
Step 5
It’s time to place your cup hooks below your painted words. Take a minute to decide exactly where you’d like them to go, then screw each one tightly into the plaque. 
Step 6
Now that your cup hooks are in place, you’ll see that their ends stick out a bit from the back of the plaque. Cut four 1" squares of adhesive-backed foam and place two (one layered on top of the other) over each cup hook. 
Step 7
Almost done! All that’s left for you to do is to hang the sign, then hang Dad’s barbecue tools from the hooks.
