How to Make a Name Plaque for Your Son or Daughter

by Brian Bosserman


  • 1 2x4
  • 2x3 Picture frames
  • Printer
  • Paper
  • 1 Can of stain
  • 1 Tube of Gorilla glue
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Cut 2x4 to desired length depending on the length of the name. Stain the 2x4 with the desired color and allow for the stain to properly dry (24hours).

    Step 2

    Remove the stands from the back of the frames. Note: cheap frames will do best for this craft.

    Step 3

    Then look for lettering online or on your computer software to add to the frames.

    Step 4

    Position the letters in the frame.

    Step 5

    CAREFULLY! Add a large drop of glue on the back of each frame. Note: glue may take a while to set. So, take your time with each piece. 30 to 60 minutes to dry.

    Step 6

    Voila! The finished product.

    Step 7

    It is good to mention that you can use any type of scrap wood and size frame. I just used what I had available. Also, I chose stain, but paint will do as well. Enjoy!
