I studied the guage for two days,,,,knowing that designing inspiration would come to me,,,and it did. I thought that the food pantry's shopping bag logo would perfect for the circle, but it needed something else. Hands. Hands in a show of love, support, community. I love it!
Super excited, I was now ready to measure out 2000 pounds in 100 pound increments. I painted every other block green and purple, and then outlined that in black paint to give it a more polished look. Next, I used stencils with yellow paint to mark 100 thru 1900. I am going to make a special 2000 for the top, (think crown) but haven't gotten there yet. I really like this design and hope we are able to achieve our goal of raising 2000 pounds of non-perishable food for the Mansfield Food Pantry!
