Unique Coloring Book DIY Name Plaque

I’ve talked before about being hooked on adult coloring, and you may have seen the tray we decorated with adult coloring pages. If you’ve never colored before, it’s very relaxing – one of my favorite hobbies in the evening after a long work day!

I’m excited to show you how to bring those coloring pages out of the book (because as adult colorists we have many of them!) and onto a useable project: this DIY name plaque.

This DIY name plaque was made using supplies purchased from Michaels! Here’s how it was done. There’s a video of how to make it at the end of the tutorial.

Grab wood letters in the name or initials of your choice. My name is short and sweet! I love these ArtMinds letters (already in white) but they have a variety of fonts and finishes to choose from.

You can color the entire page or just enough to cover one of your wood letters. Now – at this point, you have two options. You can color in additional pages and have different designs on your letters, or you can make color copies of the page. I’ll leave that up to you!
