WOOD LETTER NAME BOARD
This impressive name board can be made to accommodate any name and color theme you wish.
Although this is not a one, two, three "I'm done" type project, it is a very enjoyable process that is totally rewarded with the end result!
I had actually posted the name board in one of my 1st posts but never had the directions posted. Since I am in the process of making another one, I thought it would be fun to see someone else make one using a style of their own!
So please if you make one, show me, show me please!
The supplies needed:
3 different types of paper patterns (coordinating)
(of course if you only want to use 2 patterns, or 5 patterns, I promise not to tell)
foam board, long enough to hold your letters
embellishments (added to letters and board itself)
all purpose glue
border punch - optional
hooks or ribbon to hang
Choose your papers. They can be a mix of solids and patterns if you like.
Wrap paper around the wood letter. Anyway, just pick a spot!
The letters need to dry thoroughly. If they are touched when they are "tacky" fingerprints will be left on the letter and it is not a nice look.
Lightly put pencil marks for top and bottom of the letters. Make dots for where the needle should come in and out of the board to secure the letters with thread.
Remove the letters. Using a big needle poke holes through the board where the dots have indicated.
You can see the thread on the b around the bar that separates the upper circle from the lower circle.
Here the edges of the board were lined with strips of paper that were hit with a border punch before securing to the board.
Attach any additional embellishments to the board itself or even the letters to beautify your name board!
The last part is to glue some metal hooks on back for easy hanging. Using thick ribbon that is glued from the back on the corners would allow the board to hang nicely from the center of the ribbon.
