• Set your pattern at the top of your wood.
• Drive a nail into the point on a leaf hold the paper in place.
• Nails should be pounded in about 1/3 to 1/2 of their length.
• Continue to pound nails about 1/2″ apart, or the width of your thumb. Pound nails in at the points and intersections and then add nails in between the two so as it is easier to space things out well.

• Once you’ve followed the entire outline of the berries and leaves, WASH YOUR HANDS because the nails are dirty!
