Anyway, today I want to share this fun BLESS this home & all who enter wood decor item. I'm sure you can guess that I picked this up from The Wood Connection. I just can't help myself. Every time I go in there they have new fun stuff! I'm always excited to do more Thanksgiving crafts because I don't have many of them, but I'm getting more for sure!
I'll show you how I did it. I started by painting the sides and back of the letters a cream color. I was going to do brown, but I decided I wanted the fresh look of the light color. Then I traced the letter on to the paper I wanted to use and cut it out.
I got my supplies out for gluing the paper. My wood glue, sponge brush, and the blue rectangle/squeegee thing to smooth my paper with.
dry brushing technique for distressing to put some brown paint on the edges. I love how the brown pops on the cream! Once that was dry I started embellishing my letters. On the 'L' I added these fun leaves and an acorn that I took from this project I did last year. I thought it needed a little more after I got the paper shapes on there, so I added the rafia.
