Initial Decoration

This craft is very simple and shouldn't take you much time to do at all.
You can make this craft for any season or Holiday!
What you will need:
A wooden letter
Scrapbook paper
Modge Podge
Foam Brush
Acrylic paint (optional)
Paint brush (optional)


First lay out your letter backwards on the scrapbook paper.  I tried to line it up with the edges of the paper as you can see from above.
Trace around your letter.

Once your letter is traced, cut it out very carefully.
I cut on the inside of the line of the letter.
Once you have it cut out, make sure that it the paper lines up correctly with the wooden letter.  Trim things if you need to.
Next what I did was paint the edges of my letter.  You don't have to do this if you don't want to but I'm going to be displaying mine on a shelf so I wanted it to have a finished look since you can see the sides.
Let that dry.
Put a nice thin coat of Modge Podge on the wooden letter.
Lay your scrapbook paper down on top and smooth it out.
Let that dry.
Once that is all dry, put a thin layer of Modge Podge over the top.
Let dry.
Repeat this step so you have 2 layers of Modge Podge on it.
All that is left to do now is enjoy your finished product!
Cost of this project:
$1.49 for the wooden A at Hobby Lobby (I used a 40% off coupon)
$0.59 for the scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby.
Modge Podge, Brushes and Paint I already had on hand.
