Happy Friday everyone!! --I'm always changing things around in my house and, this time I decided to change my sons room from a little baby nursery into more of a play room. I bought some cubbies from Lowe's that I will be using to store all his toys... I found these awesome letters and I decided to do something similar for my sons room. -- I love cardboard letters because you can do endless things with them. And don't get me started on mod podge... I use it for a lot of projects and if you are wanting to start on the DIY road I recommend you get some, you will use it... I promise.
So, here is how I got plain cardboard letters to look like this...
cardboard or wood letters (got mine from Hobby Lobby)
Acrylic paint (any color--I chose black)
paint brush and/or sponge brush
fine sand paper
mod podge (gloss or matte)
You'll start by painting your letters with the acrylic paint. I chose to paint the whole letter just to get an even color when i glued the paper.
After your paint is dry, take your letters and trace the shape on the scrapbook paper & cut
Apply the mod podge on the letter to glue the paper using a sponge brush
It should look something like this
Sand the edges, to get everything nice and smooth...I also distressed the edges to give it a more industrial look
Seal it with a coat or two of mod podge
I used damage free strips to put them up on the wall
What are some of your favorite projects using mod podge?
