more scrapbook wood letters

back in this post, i told you i was working on a project for my craft room.  well, the word i wanted to spell was "create".  but they ran out of E's.  so C.R.A.F.T. it is!!! 

All you need is wood letters from any crafty store, mod podge and scrapbook paper.  trace your letter onto the paper, cut it out, and glue it to the letter.   you can also sand the edges and even add distressing ink for an aged look.   ive seen lot of people add ribbon, buttons, flowers.  its just endless what you could do with these wood letters. 

i love the cupcakes paper!  my letters were already black, so i left them that color.  i thought it gave them some depth.

i used the pop can tab hanging method and it worked great!  just make sure you hold up your letter to find the right placement for the tab.  its not necessarily centered.  like the letter F hangs more to the left.  so that placement isnt center.

hot glue, a pop can tab and a nail.   they are still on my wall even after a few weeks and door slamming :)

are you working on anything fun today?
