This listing is for the wood cutouts only to be placed on your wood background. I used a 1"x10"x4' piece of birch plywood to attach the cutouts. If placing outdoors you can spray the wood with a clear sealer to protect it from the outdoor elements. I offer the cutouts painted or not painted so you can paint your own using your desired colors. All of my wood cutouts are cut by me in my home using quality birch wood.
