Paint and paintbrush
Drill and screwdriver
4 knobs with screws
Ribbon and silk flowers
The hardware store you buy the plywood from will cut it into a square (or rectangle) of any size; for a circle, you'll need the help of a woodworker with a jigsaw. Paint, and let dry. Drill holes for knobs and attach. Cover edge of board by hot-gluing on ribbons and tucking stems of flowers underneath before glue sets.
