This project is for you NATALIE!!!!









Before we get to this NEAT project.....

Here are some Pretty FALL Pics that I found!!





OKAY!!! NOW!!!! Onto the Project!!!

I wanted to make something to hang on our front door for Fall!!

If you have read my BLOG in the past, then you would know how much I LIKE LOVE Mod Podge and Scrapbook Paper.

This project cost a total of $3.50

Here are the materials that you will need to make a Signature Letter:
Spray Adhesive
Mod Podge-Matte
Foam Brush
Scrapbook Paper- .30 Hobby Lobby
Wooden Letter-$1.99 Hobby Lobby
Ribbon (not pictured)- $1.00 Hobby Lobby




1.) Trace Letter onto Scrapbook Paper
*******BACKWARDS*******



2.) Add 1/2" Border



3.) Spray adhesive to BOTH letter and paper.
Allow to set up 1 min until tacky



4.) Line up paper with letter and press down
Wrap edges until smooth.
*****You may need to use more adhesive to get it to Stick on the sides*****
On curved areas, you may have to make little snips in the paper to get it to lay down




5.) Now Add 2 Coats of Mod Podge and allow to dry 15 min between coats!





6.) Add Thick Ribbon to back with Glue Gun





7.) Add some type of hanger to your front door. I used a Suction type hanger since our Front Door is glass.




8.) Step back and ADMIRE your CRAFTSMANSHIP =)







Here It is at Night!






NATALIE, I am looking forward to you doing this =)

After I had wrote the above line, Natalie emailed me a pic of her DIY Project.
Natalie and I go to the same church together!
I am excited about your MANY MANY MANY more projects!!

What a wonderful idea!!!! I need to do something to my front door, but considering that it's still not even painted, why should I bother?! LOL
