Who remembers these Paper Mache Letters from my JOY Post?
Well, I’m back at using paper mache letters again! Okay, maybe just one, but still.
I really like the look of distressed wood block letters but I could not find them anywhere! Keep in mind, we don’t have places like Michaels and Hobby Lobby here. I’m sure there’s something similar somewhere, but this gal is clueless. However; there are plenty of paper mache letters available and I know just where to get them! Yay for creative thinking!
I got out my acrylic white paint and painted 2 coats on my chosen paper mache letter of choice. After it was dry I sanded to distress that bad boy. YES.I.DID! I distressed a paper mache letter! ha! I will say, you need to be careful or you will flat out tear the thing. I’m actually in LOVE with the way it turned out!
And because I am abnormally obsessed with studs, or upholstery tacks, or whatever you want to call them, I of course had to embellish with them. Small touches here and there are okay, right?! (Work with me, people! Just smile and nod. Smile and nod.)
That’s all there was to it! What do you think? Cute, right?!
