Have a Lowe's associate cut your plywood in half; it should measure 2' x 2'.
If you like, spray-paint the plywood in a color of your choice.
Create a border 1 inch in from the edge of the plywood using a pencil and ruler (or just create a border with 1-inch painter's tape). Mark every 1/2" along this border.
Hammer a 1" nail in at each mark you made in Step 2, leaving about 3/4 of each nail exposed.
Tie string to a corner nail, then loop the string around the nail diagonally across from it.
Continue looping the string around each nail on the plywood (and its diagonal counterpart) until finished. Note: This will require using two packages of string.
Attach a centered picture hanger to the back of the plywood and hang.
For best results, keep the strings taut and close to the top of each nail when looping them.
