Mod Podged Letter A
As my daughter transitioned from a young girl to a tween, she needed a little something to add some color and some personality to her room so we headed to our local craft store and picked up a wooden letter A, her first initial. Back at home, we picked out a fun piece of scrap paper (I love to reuse my scraps!) and a coordinating embellishment. Then we sanded and painted and Mod Podged and in no time we had this fun piece! It is just the right pop of color on her bookshelf and it only cost me a couple of dollars!

Mod Podged Wooden Letter Instructions
1. Sand the wooden letter until smooth.
2. Set ther wooden letter on your work surface, face up, and lay a peice of patterned paper, face up, on top of the letter, adjusting the paper so that the pattern falls where you want it on the letter. Grab the letter and the paper and flip them over so that the front side of the letter is laying on top of the back side of the paper. Trace the letter with a pencil.
3. Paint wooden letter and let it dry completely. Apply a second coat of paint if necessary.
4. While the wooden letter is drying, cut out the letter that you traced onto your piece of paper, cutting just inside the traced lines.
5. When the wooded letter is completely dry, paint a thin layer of Mod Podge over the front of the wooden letter and over the back of the paper letter. Carefully and quickly lay the paper on top of the wooden letter. Smooth out any air bubbles or wrinkles. Allow Mod Podge to dry completely.
7. Gently sand off any areas where the paper hangs over the letter.
8. Spray the front of the letter with a sealer.
9. Adhere your embellishments.
