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!
unfinished wood plates (I got mine at hobby lobby)
white acrylic paint
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.
~ ENJOY! ~
