decoupaged name plates

I learned about Mod Podge Rocks a couple months ago, and have been totally hooked ever since.  I have made it a point of searching for fun projects I can do, just to use Mod Podge.  My latest endeavor was thinking of something I could make for our soon-to-be baby’s nursery.  I decoupaged the ceiling fan a few weeks ago, and was excited to do more.  Plus, with a 4th babe, it’s hard to justify spending a ton of money, right?  So I decided to make my own letter/name plates.  Cute, easy, and inexpensive… perfect!

*Materials*

Lucy Belle's room1

unfinished wood plates (I got mine at hobby lobby)

white acrylic paint

scrapbook paper

mod podge

foam brushes

    So cute! I saw the same wooden blocks in the Craft Warehouse ad here this week. I was thinking about getting some and making coasters for my dad for Christmas. I love this idea so I might have to pick up some extras!
