To Build Your Barnwood Piece:

Step 1: Lay your wood out flat and stacked closely together. Trace your shape onto the wood. I traced this wire wreath to get my circle shape!

Step 2: Using a jigsaw, carefully cut along the line that you traced to cut out your shape.

Step 3: Once your wood is cut, decide which side you want to be the front, and lay your pieces face down.

Step 4: Align your brackets (I found these for $2/each, and actually cut one in half for this project!) such that you will be putting a nail or screw into each piece so it holds strong.

Step 5: Insert at least one nail/screw through the bracket into each board. Flip over and VOILA!! Your shape is ready to paint!!
