Wooden Hen Door Sign Craft Template

Pattern: Wooden Hen Door Sign Template

Instructions:

1. Print out the pattern to fit your paper fully. Transfer the markings onto the wood and saw the pieces out. If necessary sand down the wood a bit.
2. Paint the pieces accordingly. Drybrush the edges with a contrast color. For example beige for white, brown for beige, etc... You can also add some more effect to the painted pieces by speckling them with paint. To do this, take a toothbrush and dip it into a contrast color. Then brush your thumb over the toothbrush over the wood pieces and let the paint sprinkle or speckle onto the wood. You may wish to practice this technique on a scrap piece of wood before doing it on your project.
3. Once all of your pieces are painted, assemble the fence. Afterwards glue the hen onto the fence. Use a piece of wire and wrap around a small bushel of hay. Use hot glue to glue the hay onto the project. Then glue the eggs onto the fence.
4. Adhere the remaining pieces onto the project.
5. Drill a hole in the top of the left and right fence pieces and hang with wire.
