Plywood piece (home improvement stores have a variety of sizes, get the size you need!)
Washi Tape or Painter’s Tape
Paint (I used 3 different colors)
Chisel (some kind of flat tool to get thumbtack in)
Spray paint your bulldog clips if you are a gold gal like myself. Or keep them silver. Or spray paint them hot pink. Whatever your awesome heart desires.
Tape up your board. I did the design pretty random. I wanted lots of shape and also wanted lots of negative space with the wood.
Paint. (I forgot to photograph this step…) Remove tape as soon as you done painting. I would paint all the areas that was connected to one taped area at once, so that I could remove immediately. It is best not to let paint dry before removing tape. If it dries, it could dry on tape and rip off when you remove the tape.
Now, time to add your bulldog clips!! Put the thumbtack in one hole of the bulldog clip to attach to wood. The plywood sheet had soft spots, so some thumbtacks went in with a small push, others needed a tool to help press it down (I used a chisel but any flat edge tool will do) .
Alternatively, you can add hooks if you want a different look.
