Decorative Name Letters

One of the first projects I tackled for Jackson's room was the decoupage/painted letters of his name.  I was inspired by this project on Spearmint Baby...  It was quick, easy, and fun! 

  1. paint the letters and let dry
  2. trace the letter outlines onto the back of the decorative paper
  3. cut out the tracing
  4. use mod podge to adhere the paper to the front of the letters
  5. trim any extra paper on the edges of the letters using an x-acto knife or sand paper
  6. apply a few more coats of mod podge to smooth the edges
  7. add embellishments

    Here is the finished product!  We are planning on hanging the letters above the crib eventually...
