If you have been following my blog, you will know that I have been wanting to make an "EAT" sign since it has become quite the decorating trend. I talked about it in a previous blog here. I recently updated my dining room with this fabulous "EAT" sign. It was super easy to make! Here's the how-to on making this work of art.
~Sponge brush or paint brush
First, paint around all the edges of the chipboard letter. Add more coats as needed. Let it dry.
Next, cut out your letters from your scrapbook paper. Here I used Handmade Designer Paper by K&Company. Apply Modge Podge to the front of the letter and adhere your cut-out. Smooth it out with your fingers to eliminate any bubbles. Let it dry.
Then, apply more Modge Podge to the entire letter to seal the paper more securely onto the chipboard. Let it dry completely.
Lastly, punch a hole in the back of the letter with scissors, a knife, or anything else sharp. This will ensure that it's hung flush on the wall without it sticking out too much. Be sure to not press too hard when making the hole or you could have a giant hole in the front of your letter.
Hang up your letters on a nail, screw, etc., and you're done!
I will be linking up to these parties. Happy Tuesday![Jen]
