Part of Lennox’s Barbie Birthday party decor was to make her name out of wooden letters. In the past I have just painted them but this year I decided to try covering them in scrapbook paper. It turned out to be really easy and quick, so I wanted to share with you the few simple steps to do it yourself!
DIY SCRAPBOOK PAPER WOODEN LETTERS
What you will need:
- Wooden Letters (available at craft stores for around $1)
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brush
- Exacto Knife
- Craft Paper
First, take the first letter and place it onto the scrapbook paper. With an exacto knife, cut out around the letter shape. You could also trade it and then cut it out, but I found that i got a closer cut by using the exacto knife.
Once the paper is cut out, paint the top of the wooden letter with Mod Podge. Line up and place the paper on top of the wooden letter. Trim any excess paper.
Once you have the letter looking the way you like, paint another layer of Mod Podge to add a clear coat over the letters and add some protection.
The letters I used for the party table were available in 2 packs for $1 – they are smaller but perfect for on a table.
