{craft recycling...family board}


Do you have any old or leftover crafts laying around that you just don't use anymore? Maybe stuff that you once loved, but doesn't quite work as it is now? Well, that's exactly what I had.
I took some wooden letters that had been sitting in my craft closet for awhile, along with some leftover wood. With a little scrapbook paper, hot glue, paint, and mod podge, I turned them into an adorable family sign for my basement.

ITEMS YOU NEED:

  • wooden letters (I bought mine at Walmart, but if you use your 40% coupons at Michael's or JoAnn's, you can get some great deals there too)
  • wood board, cut to desired length and width
  • spray paint (or craft paint & foam brush)
  • distress ink
  • hot glue gun
  • scrapbook paper
  • Mod Podge
DIRECTIONS:



  • Paint your board and letters; let dry.
  • Sand the edges as desired.
  • Trace each wooden letter onto a piece of scrapbook paper. You can either trace them backwards onto the back of the paper, or facing up, on the right side of the paper. I usually do the first option, because I don't like to have to erase pencil lines, but either one works.
  • Cut out letter.
  • Ink edges.
  • Apply paper letter to wooden letter, using mod podge and foam brush. (*Or, you can just use double stick tape to apply the the paper, and skip the mod podge step.) Let dry completely.
  • Using the hot glue gun, apply your letters to the board.





You're done! Simple and cute!

Cute idea...I like how you are leaning up against the wall rather than hanging. Come stop by sometime and say hi.
