Redecorating Part 2

If you can glue, you can do this project. It's that simple.

This is my second new addition to the wall decor. This is the cutest but simplest project I have done in a long time. All that I did was buy chip board letters at Hobby Lobby when they were on sale for $1 each. That would be $3 for you Mensa members. Next I took a quick stroll down the scrapbooking aisle and picked out three papers that I thought complimented each other and that I liked.

When I got home I layed the chip board letter on top of my paper and cut around the letter using my exacto knife. First I colored the edges of the chip board letters using a black permanent marker so that I wouldn't have to cover it with paper. This saved me a lot of time. Then I modpodged the paper to my letter and let it dry for a bit while I cleaned up the kitchen. Next I modpodged the top of the letter and again let it dry for a bit. Finally I mixed a little black paint into some modpodge and used it on the edges of the letters to give it a slight distressed look. Again I let that dry and then hung them on the wall. It was so simple and apart from drying time, took no more than 30 minutes to do.

Overall the project cost me under $6 to do since I already had modpodge and an exacto knife on hand.

I did buy three more letters to do a new decoration for the girls bathroom after I paint it. So if you would like a picture tutorial on this, leave me a comment and I will post that after I do the next set of letters.

I have one more new wall decor to show you in the next few days... I just have to get out my zoom lense to take a picture of it. Seriously.

After I took this picture someone else wanted in the picture as well

Then someone else.....

Do they look guilty or is it just me?
