All you'll need is:
2 1X3's 24 inches long (or however long you want) - $0.50 from Home Depot Scrap section
1 12 inch plaque from Michaels - $1.47
1 set of wall hangers - $2.29
1 wooden dowel (mine was 7/16") - $0.99
Step 1. Nail your 2 1X3s in an "L" shape
Step 2. Cut the bottom off of your plaque so that you have a flat bottom. Then put it up against your "L" to see where you need to cut vertically so that it will be flush.
Step 3. Nail the sides onto the "L"
Step 4.Cut your wooden Dowel Rod and nail this in place too.
Step 5.Paint them and screw on your wall hanger:
I also wanted to dress it up a little bit, so I bought some paper and added it with modge-podge...love how it turned out!!
I also mod-podged his name with the the same paper...I just have to hang them with some matching ribbion. My next project is some home-made picture frames to match!!
