No Place Like Home, Guest Tutorial

15 April 2010

Alissa from 33 Shades of Green sent this over in reply to my request for tutorials.
I love this!  She linked this up to my party a few weeks ago,
and I fell in love with her house when I saw it as well!

I was inspired to make these decorative letters after seeing so many great ones out in blogland. 



- Wood letters (mine were 99 cents each from Hobby Lobby)
- Scrapbook paper
- Craft glue
- Craft Paint
- Gloss varnish (optional).

Step 1: Trace letters (face-down) on back of paper..

Step 2:  Paint the edges and sides of letters with craft paint.
Step 3:  While the paint is drying, cut the letters out of the paper..

Step 4:  Glue paper to wood letters.  I usually dilute the craft glue with a little water so that it's easier to brush on.

Step 5:  I had some gloss varnish so I decided to brush it on.  I don't think this was really necessary, but it does add a nice sheen to the painted wood edges.

Step 6:  Let letters dry and you are finished!
I decided to put the letters in a nook I have by my back door. 


This was a quick, easy project, and for less than $6.00 added a nice pop of color.

Doesn't that look great?  Not to mention how beautiful that nook looks with the great wainscoting!  Thanks Alissa for sending this over!

I like using decopouge on mine instead of the glue and varnish. It can be used for both!

Oh, that's adorable! I may steal your idea for my sewing room! Something like, "create". Who knows, it's months from being a reality but I won't forget this!
