decoupaged name plates

November 5, 2009


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!


Lucy Belle's room1

unfinished wood plates (I got mine at hobby lobby)

white acrylic paint

scrapbook paper

mod podge

foam brushes



print letters on cardstock, cut out


trace letters, upside-down, on back of scrapbook paper


and cut out


paint wood plates

(I painted middles in my 2nd coat, got nervous it’d show)


while paint is drying, cut out scrapbook paper to preferred size


you should have something like this…


time for our favorite medium!


shmear it on the top of the wood plate


carefully place paper on top, pressing out any air bubbles

let dry completely!


measure & glue letters to top using mod podge. let dry!

(yes, I used a ruler b/c sometimes being anal is okay!)


once dry, shmear the top w/ mod podge, being careful not to drip over the sides

let dry several hours.  re-coat w/ mod podge.


that’s it!

~ ENJOY! ~

    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!
