It is a cold and snowy Friday here in Colorado…..
Get out your modge podge…..time for another decoupage project….!
Wood or chip board initial. You can make yourself or conveniently buy at your local craft shop.
Old/unusable sheet music, book page, dictionary page or page from a children’s book.
scissors/pencil for tracing
embellishments of choice
First: Trace letter on to paper sheet. Use two sheets as you will be cutting to cover both sides of letter.
Cut out your image (remember to cut two). Make sure you are relatively exact on this part….
Apply a thin layer of decoupage to your letter first and then a coat to the back side of your cut image. Place paper on letter and match up all sides. If you happen to be a bit off, you can add paper and/or trim later. Lastly, add a thin coat of decoupage to the entire top of letter. You will do this to both sides.
Let letter dry completely and I promise any “bumps” with your paper will go away.
Embellish or leave plain and there you go….
These are awesome for a wedding gift as you can embellish the date of their wedding right on to the letter. Also great for a baby gift with their date of birth. For a Christmas mantle….just embellish with a Christmas theme. The possibilities are endless!
Have a wonderful weekend….no matter what your weather might be! dcb
