Wood: hardwood—one piece 1 /2" x 9-1/2" x 9-1/2" [a tight grain works well) Tools: scroll saw with blades of
choice; drill with 1/16"-Dia. bit Fine mist spray glue (e.g. 3M #77) Fine- to extra-fine-grit sandpaper Clear polyurethane Hanger of choice

Using a fine mist spray glue, affix the pattern to the wood. Apply a light coat of glue to the back of your patterns. DO NOT SPRAY THE GLUE ON THE WOOD. Wait 5 to 10 seconds for the glue to gain a stickiness like tape. (Too sticky and the patterns will be hard to remove after cutting: not sticky enough and the pattern might start to come off during cutting.)
Drill a 1/16"-Dia. hole (or smaller on some cutouts) in all areas to be cut out. Make all internal cuts before making the outside cut, as this will maintain a much more stable piece of wood with which to wore
Using fine- to extra-fine-grit sandpaper, gently sand the surface and any edges that may need it. (Reverse tooth or crown tooth blades would reduce the amount of sanding needed in the cutouts.)
Finish the project with clear polyurethane. Add the hanger of your choice, and enjoy!
