If you’re stuck for a gift look no further than this DIY wooden letter decoupage, it’s a great way to give someone a really personal gift that they can display. I chose just to do the first letter of my giftees name but you could do their initials or even their whole name!
I started with just a blank wooden N. The first thing to do is pick the scrapbook papers you would like to cover it with – I went for some blues that I thought would stand out well and compliment each other.
Then I flipped over both pieces of scrapbook paper and traced around the N on the blank side. Once I had done this it was time to cut them out, it’s a lot easier if you leave yourself some room by cutting out slightly larger than the letter you just traced.
Next glue this down using a foam brush and some PVA, make sure there are no pools of glue building up underneath. Leave it to dry completely.
Once it is dry trim the excess using your scissors and a craft knife. If it is not completely dry the edges will tear so be careful!
Repeat the above steps for the other side; then add the finishing touches. This may include: glitter, stickers, die cuts, ribbon and more. I chose to put stickers on the front and blue ribbon along the sides to give it some dimension.
Prepare to have a very happy giftee!
