Step 1
Click here to download the template. Print it out on 11" x 17" paper.
 
TIP: If 11" x 17" paper is not available, you can tile the pattern and tape the pages together. 
Step 2
Stain the wood plaque using the Early American wood stain and a soft cloth (or foam brush). Let dry. 
Step 3
Lay the white transfer paper onto the front of the plaque, then center the pattern on top of the transfer paper. Tape it down so it will not move. 
Step 4
Trace over the letters, using firm pressure on your pencil. Use a ruler for the straight lines, if desired. Trace the football laces. 
Step 5
Lift off the pattern and the transfer paper. 
Step 6
Outline, then fill in each letter using the white paint pen. Let your work dry and go over everything with another coat. Let dry. 
Step 7
Add a sawtooth hanger to the back of the plaque.
