Get Craftin’

Before Delilah was born I made her nursery letters by decoupaging scrapbook paper and embellishments onto plain wooden letters that I painted. I had planned to do more projects like that since they are so fun and easy, but I hadn’t had the time. A month or so ago I found two things at the Goodwill for $1 a piece that I knew I could make into something..and I finally just got around to doing it.

Materials:
Any wooden item that you want to turn into something pretty 🙂 I changed the Pooh Bear plaque with the pegs, and the horrid colored Dream that someone took a stab at (literally)
Mod Podge
Paint (whatever matches what you’re doing)
Scrapbook Paper
Scissors
Pencil
Stryofoam Plate for paint
Foam Brush
Embellishments
First you need to paint the outside edges, you are only covering the very front of the item, so make sure the edges are painted nice and pretty of a color that matches your papers, but before you do that, trace your item backwards onto the back of the scrapbooking paper…that way while your paint is drying you can cut the paper out!
Now make sure the paint is dry…it doesn’t take very long…I waited about 15 minutes. Now take your Mod Podge and “paint” some onto your wood (On the Pooh Bear one I had to remove the pegs by the screws in back before putting on the paper), then place your scrapbooking paper onto it that has already been cut to the shape. If it’s a TINY bit bigger, that’s fine…now decopauge this, meaning put a layer of Mod Podge on top of the paper and make sure there are no bubbles underneath and smooth all the paper down on all edges.
While that’s drying figure out how you want to put your embellishments on.
Then put them on, and you are done. If you use any sticker embellishments try to put some more Mod Podge on corners to try to get them to stay on your project.
Here is what I came up with 🙂
              
              
              
Now aren’t those adorable?!? Such a big change from before!
