I’m not a very crafty person, so that’s why you can know that this project is very easy. Plus, I’m a cheapo, so you know this didn’t break the bank. In fact, it saved me $98 from not buying them online– no joke! And I was proud of myself for making the letters below for my DD’s nursery, with the help of my very good friend Tiffany.
Here’s what you need (I got all of these items from Hobby Lobby):
- Wooden Letters. The ones I found were already painted white.
- Mod Podge
- Sponge/Foam Brushes
- Scrapbook Paper– or any construction paper. I got four 12x12in paper.
- Trace the wooden letters onto your scrapbook paper. I could fit 2 letters on a page.
- Cut these paper letters out. We cut them shorter than the tracing so that there would be a white outline on the letters.
- Apply a coat of Mod Podge to a wooden letter. Try to make sure there are no bubbles or big globs.
- Cover with the patterned (or solid) paper. Smooth it out so that you can’t see any gaps or bubbles between the letter and paper.
- Apply a few coats of Mod Podge on top of the patterned paper, drying between coats
Quick, easy, and inexpensive. Leave me a comment, if you would like for me to make you some.
