I bought letters for Sam's name 2 years ago and never got around to decorating them, well with the arrival of our new little guy I decided I wanted letters for the new baby and that is was time to do Sam's letters as well.
What you will need:
- Letters for the name or saying you want to decorate
- Scrapbook paper (I did 4-5 different designs)
- Base color paint
- Mod Podge
- Paint brush
- Exacto knife
Start out by painting your letters with a base color (doesn't have to be perfect you cover most of it up!) Then take your scrapbook paper and tear it up into small pieces.
Using Mod Podge coat your letter, place paper and cover paper with more modge podge. Don't worry about the edges at this point just make sure to mix up the different papers. When it is all dry take an exacto knife and trim along the edges (don't trim when wet is tears the paper in a not pretty way...I learned this the hard way). I did one last coat of Mod Podge and you are all done!
After making the letters I realized I didn't have anywhere I could display them so my display will come in a future post!
