The piece of scrap wood I used for project was approximately 20 inches long and is a tongue and groove style board. I started off by dry brushing some paint onto my board. I didn’t want to fully cover my board so the dry brushing technique works perfectly for this. I didn’t paint the top groove section of the board as we are going to do something with that part next.
Once my board dried I took my jute twine and wrapped it several times around the top of my board leaving just a bit of the natural wood showing. I secured the beginning and end of my twine with hot glue. You could also use a staple gun to secure the twine.
Next, I hot glued the numbers of my zip code to the board. If you plan on using this outdoors you will want to use E6000 to adhere your numbers to your board. I found my letters at Hobby Lobby for $1.39 per pack. I am in love with this piece! What do you think? Easy, cute and versatile so you can use it around your house year round.
The first thing you will want to do is trace each letter onto your desired piece of card stock or scrapbook paper and then cut them out.
Once you have all of you letters traced and cut out you will then use the Mod Podge to glue the paper on the letters. After I have my paper glued on I like to paint a light coat over the top of the paper also to help seal the letter. Keep in mind the Mod Podge does try clear!
You are now ready to hot glue your letters on your piece of wood. You can position your letters vertical or horizontal on your board. I decided I liked my letters horizontally for this project.
That’s all there is to it! Super cute and easy enough, right?
