Chevron Wooden Hanging Letter

To make the large chevron ‘C’, you’ll need: 

Wrapping Paper or Cardstock

Wooden, Chipboard or Paper Mache Letter

Mod Podge

Coordinating Paint

Foam Brush

Pencil

Scissors

Exacto Knife

make sure you trace your letter wrong side up on the back of the paper

Cut the paper down to size.  Flip your paper over to right side down.  Place your letter on the paper, right side down.  Trace around the letter and cut it out.  Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the right side of the letter- working in small sections at a time, it dries pretty quick.

If you find that you have any over hang, turn your letter over and using your exacto knife, trim around the letter to clean it up.  I suggest putting down a cutting mat beforehand!

I chose to finish mine off by painting around the raw edge of the wood and distressing the edges of the paper.  If you choose not to distress the paper, you will want to paint the wooden edges before gluing on the paper.
