I got my letters for around 2.50 usd a letter and my paint for around .99 usd a bottle......the card bored letters are lighter cheeper and easyer to hang but wood works too.......if you use a spounge brush it makes painting easyer......be prepared to touch up your letters if your using more than one colored paint.........the whole project only cost about 20.00 usd

Instructions

  1. Step 1 1

    lay your newspaper down in the area you are working in

  2. Step 2 2

    lay wax paper over the news paper that way when you paint your letters they wont get newspaper all over them trust me it helps...

  3. Step 3 3

    pull tags off your letters get a paper plate and put your paint on it

    I got my letters for around 2.50usd a letter and my paint for around .99usd a bottle......the card bored letters are lighter cheeper and easyer to hang but wood works too

  4. Step 4 4

    the brush i used

    this isnt a step but its helpful lol




  5. Step 5 5

    start buy painting the top of your letter it may take more than one coat of paint

    i used a spounge brush because it was the bigest brush i had and gave a grainy effect

    by using a spounge you can give a wood grain effect

  6. Step 6 6

    paint the sides of your letter AFTER you give the top color a chance to dry dont worry if you get the paint on your top color you can touch it up later

    if paint the sides a brighter color it will make them look more 3D

  7. Step 7 7

    let dry and deside how you want to hang them or sit them on a shelf

    to hang them use a drill bit to make a hole in the back be carefull no to pierce bothe sides

    and your done
