If you’ve been a reader for a while you know by know how much I love to shop at Pick Your Plum, and no they don’t pay me to say that. I just love getting craft stuff from them. Its not always the easiest thing for me to leave the house and go craft shopping with twin 3 year olds (OMG they are almost 3!!)
A couple weeks ago I ordered some washi tape (always adding to my growing collection) and some patriotic decor. First up was this super cute FREEDOM wood cut out. I wasn’t sure exactly what I was going to do.. I just knew it was going to be red, white and blue.
I started with the bare wood and sprayed about 100 coats of white spray paint before getting completely frustrated and finishing them with a good old paint brush.
It really didn’t matter what they looked like paint wise I just knew I wanted white on the back and the sides so they would have a finished look.
I picked up some cute paper at Michaels and simply traced the letters right onto the paper and cut them out. Talk about easy.
I used some Elmers Spray Adhesive on the wood and placed the paper to it. Once the wood was covered I applied a top coat of Mod Podge.
The Mod Podge isn’t completely necessary but I want these letters and the paper on them to last a while and Mod Podge is my go to sealer.
Patriotic Right? I love it!
See that cute little flag decor? Read about that craft here and the wreath here.
