To create this simple lettered garland, I began with wood shapes from Hobby Lobby. They came in packages of four.
Then I spray painted them with Rust-oleum American Accents Heirloom White.
I used stencils to make the letters and painted them with a stenciling brush, dabbing off most of the paint.
I sanded the edges and wiped stain on the entire board and then wiped it off for an aging effect.
Finally I drilled a hole in the top of the wood and used jewelry beading wire to string them together. After I put the wire through the hole, I just twisted a couple of times to hold in place. I also added a couple of red checked fabric bows to the ends.
There are lots of variations you could do with this project. For a dressier look you could use gold paint and maybe some glitter and drill holes in both corners and string with a pretty ribbon. I'm sure you could think of many more. Have fun.
I am also having a giveaway. You can go here to enter.
