Follow the directions on the stain and rub off the excess after a minute or two. I then let it dry for about 15 minutes before spraying on a second coat to make the finish a little darker.
A few minutes after letting that coat dry I painted my kids' hands with the white paint and pressed them onto one side of the board. I only did one hand of each child due to space, but you can do both if you prefer.
While that was drying, I printed out the sign which I created in Powerpoint. As I previously described, printing white text isn't exactly straight forward so you can see my easy tutorial on how to print white text on black paper (or any background) here.
The last step was to glue on the clip. If you're going with the "Hands Down Best ___" sign, be sure to glue on the clip so the hand prints will be upside down. I just used a little super glue to attach it to the board.
This gift would also work make a great end of the year teacher gift or for mom for Mother's Day or the grandparents as a Grandparent's Day gift.
