Mod Podge Letters...


Another thing that my friend Lauren and I saw 
when we were at The Barn
were some really cute fabric-covered letters.

We both wanted the first letter of our last name.
It's been on our to-do list for a while now,
but we finally got around to making them yesterday!

MATERIALS NEEDED:
Wooden letters

[we bought them at Michaels for $3.50]

Fabric
[I used turquoise and white damask that I found at JoAnn Fabrics]
Mod Podge
Scissors
Paint Brush

First, trace the shape of the letter onto the back of the 
material that you are going to cover it with:



Cut the shape out of the fabric:


Apply Mod Podge to the letter, and apply the fabric cut-out:
[it was my first time using Mod Podge, and now I'm a huge fan!]

Apply Mod Podge to the top of the letter:


Let it dry.

Optional:
We both are totally digging the distressed look right now, 
so we chose to sand the edges and make it look a wee bit tattered.

The result:


I know where I'm putting my letter...
I'll show you soon ;]

Cute! I can't believe this was your first time using Mod Podge! I've never used fabric on the letters but I cover them in scrapbook paper all the time.
