What You Need:
- Wooden letters (spelling out your phrase of choice, of course!)
- Fine grit sandpaper
- Acrylic Paint (Satin or Metallic work very well)
- Paint brush
- Rope/twine (for hanging... we used natural jute rope from Hobby Lobby)
- Glue gun (and glue!)
Just start by giving the letters a little sanding and then wipe them down with a damp (not soaked) cloth to remove the sawdust.
If you feel like getting a little more involved, you can embellish with some pretty painted designs, stamped patterns or even rhinestones but the letters look absolutely stunning without any fancy stuff.
Now you're going to measure out your rope/twine and glue the letters on. Make sure you press the letter against the twine (on a flat surface covered in newspaper is a good idea) to insure that they are stuck together.
And that's it! Hang and enjoy :)
