Modge Podge wood letters - Easter

I saw these Easter wood letters at Hobby Lobby and immediately thought it'd be a fun Modge Podge project.  I'm new to Modge Podge.  I've been wanting to try another project and this one was perfect.  It's my first project to do with letters.

Easter wood letters
Modge Podge
Scrapbook paper
Wood stain
2 foam brushes
sand paper
pencil, scissors & credit card
Ink distresser

1. Trace letters face down on the back of the paper and cut out.

2. Use foam brush to stain the sides and back of wood letters.  Let dry.

3. Apply layer of Modge Podge to front of letter with second foam brush, lay the cut paper on top of the letter and use credit card to smooth out the paper.  Get all the bubbles out from underneath.

4. Let dry for one minute.
5. Use sandpaper to sand edges of paper. 

6. Use Ink Distresser to stain edges or blot wood stain with a cloth on edges.

7. Use foam brush to apply Modge Podge all over the the front and side of letter.  Don't worry Modge Podge will dry clear.
8. Let dry.

  1. found this on somewhat simple. i haven't tried modpodge yet, but this grabbed my attention. cute.

  2. What a great idea. I saw these same letters at Hobby Lobby....but passed them by. Better get back there before they're all sold out! =o) ~Joy

  3. They turned out great and I know you'll enjoy pulling them out year after year. I made FALL ones but they weren't wood letters, no staining. I think if I'd had to do that I might have ended up being too lazy:)
