Painted Wood Plaque and Letter

I love doing craft projects with laser-cut wood frames and plaques. I think they are both excellent ways to create unique wall art. On my recent trip to Michaels, I bought this wood plaque and wood letter:

I let the two objects sit on my table for a couple of days because I didn’t know what I wanted to do with them. Then, one day as I was walking around a store, I saw lots of products that were gray and yellow. I loved the way those two colors complimented each other. I immediately went to another craft store and bought yellow acrylic paint and gray chalk paint.

I painted the plaque gray:

and the letter “B” yellow:

I used two coats of paint on each object. I lightly sanded the paint on the plaque with fine grit sandpaper to give the plaque a chalk finish. Then, I hot glued the letter on the plaque and hung the finished project on my wall.

Wood Frame + Wood Letter

I went to Michaels earlier this week because they were having an awesome sale throughout the store, plus, I received a 20% off coupon (that’s the only way I can afford to shop at some of these craft stores). I found lots of items on clearance, including this wood frame and letter:

I decided to turn the frame and letter into wall art using paint, scrapbook paper, and cotton fabric.

I started off by painting the frame with sage green acrylic paint.

As the paint was drying on the frame, I started working on the wood letter. I traced the letter on a sheet of scrapbook paper, then I glued the paper on the letter using Mod Podge.

To finish off the project, I made a bow out of the cotton fabric.
