Wooden Letters - Embellished!

Happy Friday!!  We are going to have FANTASTIC weather in the CHI-TOWN area.  My family plans to spend a lot of time outside. 

Today I have a great project for you.  These are wooden letters you can find at any craft store. I believe they were less than $2.00 each.  All you do is embellish them however you like or by theme.  Mine spell "Jade" which is my oldest daugther's name.  What I love about them is you can decorate them however you want or use a theme.  All you need is coordinating paper, embellishments, adhesive and mod podge.   

My daughter loved them so now I've moved onto to make a set for my other 2 girls.  First, I traced the letters onto the back side of my paper and carefully trimmed them out.  Then I inked the edges with a stamp pad or you could paint them.  Actually painting the edges would be easier.  Hopefully you can see some of the detail in the pictures below.  These can be done for boys or girls.  My friend did a fantastic set for her son maybe she'll let me share pictures of those soon.





Hope you have a great weekend!
