Holiday Yard Art
Make your outdoor space extra fun this holiday by building this Roy The Penguin yard art!
STEP 1. DOWNLOAD AND PRINT PATTERN
a. Download patterns from the PDF below (coming soon!)
b. Take the pattern(s) you have selected to a print store (Staples, Office Depot, etc.), have it enlarged to 36 in. x 48 in. and printed
STEP 2. CUT PLYWOOD AND PAPER PATTERN
a. Use a circular saw to cross cut the full sheet of plywood down to 3 ft. x 4 ft.
b. Cut out the paper pattern(s) using a pair of scissors
c. Place the cutout on the 3 ft. x 4 ft. piece of plywood and use a pencil or marker to trace the inside and outside shape of your pattern
STEP 3. DRILL PILOT HOLES
Using a drill, drill a pilot hole into the outer part of each shape.
(Be sure the drill bit is a larger diameter than your jig saw blade)
STEP 5. SAND AND CLEAN SHAPES
a. Using a sander, sand the edges and flat surfaces of the shapes. (Make sure all rough or splintered areas are smoothed out)
b. Using a workshop blower, clean off the shapes and workspace
STEP 7. ATTACH HAT AND SCARF
Using a hot glue gun or stapler, attached the hat and scarf. (Be sure to staple in areas where the folds in the material will cover the staples)
STEP 8. ASSEMBLE YARD ART
For the final step, slide the feet into the notches on the body so the yard art can stand on its own.
Now the project is complete!
