Bloom, Blossom, Grow: Putting Paint on Wooden Letters

IMG_7120[1]Now that school is over, I’m working on a little project and trying to get the finishing touches done. Today, after I finished this part of the project, I was really excited about how it turned out.

So, I thought I would take the time to share about how I got the letters to look like this.

I bought the letters from Michael’s. They were $2.99 each. Click HERE to see these wooden letters from Michael’s.

So here is how I turned these letters that were once white into the multicolor explosion that they are now.

I took bottles of different colors of acrylic paint, and poured them kind of haphazardly onto a piece of scrap poster board. Then, I just kind of swirled them together using a plastic knife.

Then, I turned the letter over and laid it on the tarp I had out so it could dry. I continued the process until I got all of the letters done.

After they dried, I took them to my project site and super glued them to the wall.

Yep….super glue….GORILLA super glue….

and it stayed on the wall…..

for now.

Hope when I go back tomorrow they will still be there.

We’ll see….

In the meantime….

I hope if you wanted to find a different way to paint wooden letters, you would try this method.

Let me know if you did. I would love to hear from you!!
