It actually turned out quite cute & then this morning I decided to sand the edges & add a little stain.
This is when I ruined the whole thing... stained dripped on the middle of the project & when I tried to wipe it off it ripped the paper! It did not look good!
This is how it looks now...
I was able to still use a corner of my orange polk-a-dot paper for the middle wood piece.
Then I hung a fall wreath with some ribbon from the top of the plaque.
Next, I sanded the edges & added my stain...carefully this time!
