How to Use a Yard Art Pattern

Using a Yard Art pattern is simple and easy to do. A list of easy to follow, detailed instructions is included with your pattern. To see how simple our patterns are to work with, review these basic steps.

Your first step is to place your Yard Art pattern over the plywood and trace only the outside edges of the pattern onto the plywood. Then you will cut out the pattern using a jig saw or scroll saw. Be sure to wear goggles and use proper safety techniques when using your jig or scroll saw. Fill in any grooves with wood putty and sand the plywood especially the edges until it is smooth. Paint both sides of your cut-out using primer and let dry. Next, you will replace the pattern over the cut-out and trace the details of the pattern onto the plywood. Go over the detail trace lines with a permanent, waterproof felt point pen to make painting the details easier. Paint your pattern using the picture on the package as a guide. Use a black gloss paint marker to outline the cut-out to define details and give a finished look to the design. You can seal your cut-out with a water-base varnish. One-half inch conduit pipe with one-half inch conduit straps to attach the pipe to the cut-out work well to stand the cut-out in your yard. It is as simple as that to create your own Yard Art project.
