- Using the template, trace hammer onto pine board. The PDF includes a full size template for the hammer.
- Cut out and sand all surfaces lightly. Slightly round edges of the handle only. You can use a router with a round over bit for this step, but if you don't have a router, just sand the sharp edge until slightly rounded.
- Mix medium brown paint, approximately one part paint to 5 parts water, in a shallow container.
- Dip a rag or sponge into mixture and apply to the front, back, and edges of the hammer. Let set for a couple minutes and then wipe dry with a soft cloth. Let dry completely.
- Paint the hammer head and the clothespin black and let dry.
- Glue the clothespin in place, using the picture as a guide.
- Print "Honey Do" on the hammer head with the white paint pen.
- Attach hanger to back of hammer head as shown.
