Personalized Wooden Letter
A great way to add a personal touch to your home decor. This would be a great engagement, wedding or engagement gift. I had looked at loads of places for a wooden H but never had any luck finding one that matched our decor. This was my first experience with Mod Podge...loved it! I already have added these letters to my list of gifts to create for the holidays! Happy Crafting!
Here is the tutorial I used as a guide.
1. Paint letter preferred color. This will be the background color. It will be noticeable from every angle except the front. You don't have to paint the front of the letter since you will be covering it with paper, but I would paint a little past the edge incase your paper doesn't cover all the way. Let letter dry.
2. Choose scrapbook paper for front of the letter. Trace paper and cut out.
3. Use mod podge to adhere the paper letter to the wood. I first painted the paper, put it on top of the wood then covered the whole thing with my new best friend-mr. podge.
4. Let dry and enjoy!
