I adore typography and word art. Unfinished wood letters are the perfect base for creating a lot of different projects. In this craft, I used 6 inch wood letters to create word art that would be perfect for a mantle or a centerpiece. I chose the word “thankful” for Thanksgiving. I didn’t use traditional fall colors, opting to match my living room color scheme, instead. That’s the beauty of doing it yourself: you’re not limited to what’s on the store shelf, you can make whatever you imagine!
Step 1: Paint the sides and back of the letters. Paint the wood board.
Step 2: Trace the letters onto the scrapbook paper and cut out. The paper will be slightly larger than the front of the letter, and that’s OK.
Step 3: Apply Mod Podge to the front of the wood letter, and press the paper on. Allow it to dry.
Step 4: Trim the excess paper off the wood letter, and sand the edges. Then seal with another layer of Mod Podge on top of the paper.
