Time to complete: 45 minutes

Things you’ll need:

Let’s gather your supplies and let’s get crafting!

First step – Applying the Medium

This step you will want to grab all the pieces you wish to have that ‘crackle’ look. I just added it to the top and bottom of the plaques. Cover all surfaces and let them dry completely.

Second Step – Add your color of choice

Here i chose to make them a chalk white color. This allowed them to be more matte color than have to much shine. Paint a nice even coat of the paint over the plaques. Set those aside once all covered to dry — Watch the magic happen 🪄

Third Step – Paint the Feet

Here you will grab your 1 inch wooden balls. Paint these all over and let them dry.

Forth Step – Add Protection

After all wood pieces were dry, i then added a nice even coat of Mod Podge. This will then help protect from chipping and surface wear and tear.

Fifth Step – Add your feet

Grab your glue gun and glue on the painted wooden balls for the feet. This will create a not height for your riser.

Once the riser is completely dry, it’s ready to be used to display your items with farmhouse charm.
