Simply Stylish Wooden Initial Decor

Perfect for the front door, family room. or nursery. This is so simple to do and it will cost you only a few dollars. Really, you can do this!





What you need:
Mod Podge- you'll put this stuff on everything! (I have the Matte finish)
A paint brush
A wooden letter
Decorative scrapbook paper
A pencil
Scissors

Steps:

1. Trace out the letter (facing backwards) on the back side of your paper, Be careful to lay the letter on the paper the way you want you pattern to run on your paper.

2. Carefully cut out the paper

3. Using the paintbrush, apply a thin and even coat of Mod Podge to the back side of your paper (do this rather quickly as it dries fast)

4. Carefully position the paper to align over the correct side of your wood letter. Once the paper is positioned correctly, gently run your fingers over the paper, pressing it against the wooden initial.

5. carefully check the edges of the paper to make sure that all have adhered to the wood, gently lift the paper and apply more Mod Podge to areas where paper is loose.

6. Allow the Mod Podge to fully dry (15-20 minutes) before next step.

7. Apply 2-3 coats of Mod Podge over top of the paper to seal it onto the wooden initial. MAKE SURE that you allow each coat to dry between applications.

You can also add to your initial decorative buttons, ribbons or flowers and beautifully personalize any room!

I encourage you to try this and remember to share it on our Facebook page
