Paint your wood with your base colour.
Place your template over the wood when it dries and trace it. I doodled over all the back of the template with a pencil so that when i traced it a little bit of gray would show over the wood.
Time to paint!
When choosing your paint try that your colours are really opaque so that you don't have to re-paint. I chose a shimmery pink that needed three coats and believe me that wasn't fun.
If your design has straight lines use masking tape to help yourself. While doing this i also painted the back with black.
I wanted to do a detail on the crown with glitter so i painted it with a base colour (as similar as i could get to gold) and when it was dry i applied three layers of glitter glue.
Cut your ribbon (I used three strings of 25 cms each) and burn the ends with the lighter so that they don't fray. Don't get the flame too near the ribbon when you do this! With just the heat it will burn as much as we need it.
Staple the ribbon to the back of the wood. As a bonus, i glued it so that i could be 100% sure that it wasn't going to come off.
Write a super gay and cheesy message on the back :D.
And you're done!
