So, these mod-podged wooden letters are all over the internet and on lots of craft blogs. However, although they aren't a new idea, I love them and want to share mine. If you haven't seen them before, here's also a quick write up on how to make your own.
What you will need:
- Wooden letters to spell out the word of choice
(I found mine at Walmart)
- Various scrapbook papers
- Embellishments (if desired)
- Paint and paint brush
- Sand paper (if desired)
- If desired, paint the edges of the wooden letters and let dry. I painted mine black.
- Trace your wooden letter onto the back of your paper and then cut the traced shape out.
- Add an even coat of mod podge to the wooden letter and adhere paper into place. Let dry completely and resist the urge to pop or mush any bubbles should you get them on your paper.
- Once dry, add a top coat of mod podge over the paper.
- When the top coat is dry, you can sand the edges of each letter and add ribbon to hang the letters together.
- Embellish as desired. I think these little Sizzix ghosts are a cute accent and go with the theme.
This is a really easy project that comes together rather quickly. You can do all sorts of words and for all sorts of occasions. "BOO" was super easy though because all the letters had center openings which made it easy to loop them together with ribbon.
