makebreak: thankful plaque

Make this thankful plaque project it is a great DIY fall decor piece.
Step 1
Step 1 ADULT: Cut apart the "Thankful" stencil from the rest of the stencils. Peel off the backing and press it into position on the plaque toward the top center. Press stencil down firmly. TIP: Be sure to leave enough room on the plaque for your child to paint a pumpkin below the word. Step 2 ADULT: Pour some Sting Ray Gray paint onto a paper plate (or palette paper). Dip a stencil brush into the paint and dab some of the excess paint off, to evenly distribute paint across the bristles. Then, tap and swirl your stencil brush over the openings of the stencil. Remove the stencil and let dry. TIP: Do not apply too much paint at once. Build up the color one thin layer at a time to keep excess paint from getting under the stencil. Step 3 ADULT: Cut apart some of the leaves from the stencil that you’d like to use across the top of the plaque. Press them down into place and repeat Step 2 with Jack-o-Lantern paint over the opening of the leaves stencil. Let dry. Step 4 ADULT: Cut a piece of ribbon about 12" long and tie a bow around the jute hanger from the plaque. Trim the ends. Step 5 Once the stenciled designs are dry, use a pencil to lightly draw a pumpkin below the "Thankful" image. Step 6 Paint your pumpkin with Jack-o-Lantern paint; then, add a stem, leaves and vines with Tree Top paint. Let dry.
