I'm excited to share a post for Polka Dot Week! In coming up with my post, I knew I wanted a simple craft. I went to our local craft store and walked around for a bit to get some inspiration. I found a wooden deer silhouette and fell in love! I knew I had to use it in my project somehow. I first was going to paint polka dots on canvas but I found this cute piece of wood and knew it would be perfect!
I found the board and wooden deer head and paint at a local craft store. The board was $6, the deer head was $5 and the paint was $3. I also purchased a small tube of E6000 tape so all together for this project it was $16.
You will need:
//Wooden deer silhouette (I found mine at a local craft store)
//Wood for background
//Paint. I used Delta Ceramcoat in Sea Foam for the Deer head and
Polka dots in Metallic Gold
//white cardstock or Paper
1. Trace your circle onto paper. You could skip this part if you use a foam circle stamp right onto the wood. I traced 20 polka dots but you could do more or less if you would like.
2. Paint the circles gold. I did 3 coats. The paint is fast drying so this step didn't take very long. Then cut out.
3. Paint your wooden deer piece. I used this pretty Sea Foam green. Let dry. I chose to let the wood back ground stay unpainted but you can paint it if you want.
4. Glue your deer to the middle of the board. I used e6000 glue and it worked great! Let dry overnight.
5. Paint modge podge onto the back of the gold polka dots and place onto your board. I didn't have a pattern for this. First I laid out all of my polka dots to see where I wanted them to go. I like more of a random look, but you can do it however you would like.
I love how this project turned out! This would make a great gift idea or craft for a girls night!
