Decorated Wooden Letters for Wall Art

Create an interesting and comfortable spot for reading. Here is a cute idea and directions for creating wall decor for a reading area...

You will need:

  • wooden letters (R, E, A, & D) (I found these at Walmart for $2.26 each) or you can find them online here.
  • craft paint
  • craft adhesive
  • small foam brush
  • scrapbook paper
  • stamp pad
  • scissors
  • pencil
  1. Start with unfinished wood letters R E A & D.

  2. Paint all edges using a small foam brush.

  3. Once dried, lay letter side up on chosen scrapbook paper or wall paper.

  4. Trace letter unto side up of paper.

  5. Cut around inside of your pencil marks approx 1/10th inch (just inside)

  6. Apply adhesive to wood letter (face up side)

  7. Gently adhere paper to wood letter.

  8. Once dry, use ink stamp pad to "distress" each edge.

  9. Viola! Now hang your piece of art!

I used paper from the K & Co. Rough and Tumble collection. I just love it!
