I LOVE the plain pine look. I also love the contrast of the “untreated” wood used in combination with with bold colours and patterns. That was the main inspiration behind this piece. This one is a fail-proof decoupage Easter project for any level and age of crafter.
If you're not a fan of the raw wood look, then before you start just give the block a coat of paint. Choose a colour that is complimented by the colours in the paper you are using.
You will need:
- Gloss Mod Podge
- Mod Podge sponge applicator
- Block of wood
- Super cute patterned paper
Cut your wood block to the size you want your sign and sand off any rough edges.
Cut out your letters. I wanted my letters to have a child like feel to them so I didn't draw them up or follow a font, I just cut them as I went.
Place the letters on the wood as you go to check you are happy with their sizing.
Have a play with your letters and arrange them where you want them to go.
Mod Podge time!
Apply some Mod Podge to the wood, stick your letter on top and cover generously with Mod Podge. Repeat this with each of your letters.
On a side note . . . these sponge applicators are AWESOME! This was the first time I'd used them. They are SO nice to work with! I think I need to stock up! 🙂
Use a larger sponge brush to give your Happy Easter sign a nice generous final coat of Mod Podge.
