Found some old barnwood slabs...what to do?

I have had this old barn wood slab sitting in my craft annex, the place I house everything I want to paint on when I get a chance, for ages.  It is 36 inches tall and 10 inches wide at the wides point.  So I decided to pull it out and put something on it.    I thought about it for a few days....then found the perfect pattern that would fit it. 
I live with a boy who loves penguins so naturally this became a no brainer right away. 
 I think I will drill holes at the top and use old fencing wire for a small hanger and tie a cloth bow and some raffia on it.  I am not sure I will be able to get this out of the house for a craft show if my son has his way.   Good therapy for me!
