Instructions:

1. Print the “Love Me Do” template. It should be

smaller than your board or plaque.

2. Position the template on the wood base and secure

with double-sided tape.

3. Use the hammer to tap the nails into the wood

through the paper template, spacing them evenly

along the border of your design. Hold the nails in

place with needle nose pliers to protect your fingers.

Hammer to a uniform depth.

4. Remove the paper template. Use tweezers or

needle nosed pliers to remove any small pieces of

paper or tape that remain between the nails.

5. Knot the DMC Embroidery Floss to any nail and

begin wrapping the thread in a zigzag pattern. Wrap

the thread sparingly to show more of the base or

wrap in several layers to create a more solid color.

6. When you finish the first color area, tie the floss in

an overhand knot around the last nail and add a drop

of glue to secure and prevent unraveling.

7. Repeat the process for all colors and areas.
