Crafty Wooden Letters


• Wooden letters of your choice (available at craft stores)

• Scrapbook paper

• Scissors

• Paint

• Mod Podge (glossy or matte)

• Sponge brushes

• Ribbon, embellishments

• Hot glue gun

Step 1: Choose wooden letters to make whichever word or name you like. Lay a sheet of scrapbook paper face down on flat surface. Flip wooden letter upside down and trace around letter with a pencil. Repeat with each letter. Cut the traced letters from scrapbook paper (try to cut just inside the traced line so paper will not overlap wood).

Step 2: Use a sponge brush to paint a thick layer of Mod Podge onto the front side of letters. Carefully line up the paper letter on top of the wooden letter and smooth down over the Mod Podge. Let dry.

Step 3: When the letters are covered in paper, use sponge brush to paint over the top of the paper with Mod Podge. Apply two coats, allowing to dry between coats.

Step 4: Paint the sides of the wooden letters and blend a bit of paint into the edges of scrapbook paper.

Step 5: Finish with a final coat of Mod Podge if desired. Use a hot glue gun to add ribbon and other decorations.
