A 5 minute room plaque

Now i know i said i wouldn't do any more projects until i had gutted my study but i couldn't resist making a really quick and easy room plaque for one of my nieces.  At the moment i am really into wooden projects having ordered loads of random wooden shapes online before Christmas. 

This is a really quick gift and the only time involved really is waiting for the spray paint to dry.

Here's the step by step....

1.  Take a thin piece of MDF or thin wood.  I used these and they are approx 14cm x 7cm
2. Using spray paint (or a tin if you haven't got spray paint) cover your plaque and leave to dry. Once dry turn over and repeat.
3.  Once fully dry use a gel ink pen to write on your text.  I also added lines around the border to jazz it up. 
4. Embellish with stickers, chipboard etc.  i used accessorize stickers on mine.
5.  Turn over and add a sticky pad to the back .



  1. What a lovely idea :) it looks so pretty.
    I just love wood and I can not resist some of the shapes (I have a few hearts to do something with).

  2. Wonderful - it looks really effective! I snagged a few Accessorise Sticker Bargains this week too.
