Decoupaged wooden letters tutorial 6/17

Hi everyone Wanda here, I am gonna show you how I made this Family wall decoration

A great way to show off your Grand kids maybe a sports pic or a vacation trip ..... I choose to show off my 2 Beautiful Grand daughters

First you are going to need your wooden letters I bought mine at Michael's and they are 9ins.

your mod podge, any black paint ,a pencil, scissors, sand paper, Sm foam brush and a printer.

First I painted my letters black try to do nice even strokes so you don't have a lot of brush lines

While the letters are drying choose the pictures you want to use and print them with your printer, I made mine black & white .

Then you are going to lay your picture on the letter where you want it and flip it over so you can trace around it with your pencil. I add a little two way tape to keep it in place when flipping it...

Once you have traced them go a head and cut them out don't worry if they go over the edge of the letter are gonna sand them.

Next you are going to take your mod podge and apply it to the back of your picture then place your picture where you want it on your letter , do this with all your pictures.

Once that is done take your sand paper and go around any of the edges of your pictures that are

hanging over the edge of the letter and sand them down , I also sanded here and there on the edge of the letters...this is optional .

Now take your Mod Podge and apply it to fronts & sides ( INCLUDING PICTURES ) of the letters you will want to do this rather quickly as it drys pretty quick. I started with the sides first. Let them dry completely......a few hours

Once dry embellish as you wish .

I made mine country for my living room , used ribbon , buttons ,lace,....and some charms.

the possibilities are endless ...I see a Disney maybe a beach one , what ever you choose have fun with it and enjoy.

Thanks for letting me share this with you.
