caitie's polka dot mod podge letters

so last night after buying my first bottle of mod podge i got to work.
we bought my daughters name in wooden letters four years
ago (yep she's four, i'm old)
they were white and looked beautiful in her nursery.
when we did her big girl room we took them down and
never put them back up.
i am planning a redo on her room
and thought this would be the perfect first project.

these were my supplies:
(minus the scissors and pen)

step 1: clean them.
step 2: figure out what paper you want where.
step 3: trace your letters.
step 4: cut them out. i used scissors, probably
much easier with an exacto knife (which i need to buy).
step 5: cover your letter with mod podge and lay
paper over it smoothing out all bubbles.
step 6: put a layer of mod podge over the letters and let dry.
(step 6)

step 7: repeat step 6 if you wish.
step 8: enjoy them!!!
(finished project)

what do you think??
(boring white letters)

(just awesomeness!!)

yep it's love. even from caitie!! she says "thank you mommy!"
it was so simple, if i can do it, so can you!
i can say now we will be doing MANY more of these projects!!

happy almost friday! =)

i'm linking to these parties:


  1. Hey Brandi. That's such a cute little project.
    Thanks for the comment you left on my blog. To answer your question about the shade staying up, if you look at the before pic you'll notice the top of the light has a disk-like piece. Well, that comes competely apart from the light so the shade gets sandwiched between it and the light when p on the roof. Sorry, kinda hard to explain though I hope it makes sense!

  2. So cute! Stopping by from the Shabby Nest! Thanks for sharing! :)
