It seems like letter and word art is here to stay and I had to get in on the action. Hobby Lobby had chipboard letters on sale a while back and I decided to make something for the boys’ lair (a.k.a. our basement).
After picking out a few coordinating papers, I used Mod Podge to adhere the paper to each letter. Then, I trimmed off the excess paper and painted the edges of the chipboard with craft paint (oops, should have started with that step!).
The papers were just a little too bright white for me so I dry brushed each letter with a little watered down tan craft paint.
The previous owners of our home left loads of excess trim and 2x4’s behind. to mount my letters, I put a small remnant to good use on this project. The board was honey oak laminate so I painted it up a little.
Then, I simply attached each letter with Liquid Nails and added a little braided twine to the top for a hanger.
And now the lair seems slightly less scary.
I asked them very nicely to please let their new artwork hang up, undisturbed, at least until the weekend. We’ll see if it lasts that long.
Love them. Little stinkers.
