At the beginning of the summer we had a craft night at church and I was in charge of one of the classes. About the same time, we were putting up the paneling in our front room so I thought it would be a good idea to 'kill two birds with one stone'. I wanted to make something that I could easily help a lot of people make and yet be able to bring home my example one to put on the wall above the paneling.
First I cut out 7" vinyl letters and cut 1x6 or 1x4" pine boards to fit them. Then I picked out 6 different black and white patterned papers and cut them to fit the boards. I painted the boards white (the side where the paper goes really doesn't need to be painted) and then glued the papers on with a gluestick. This actually works really well with the pine wood. If you buy cheaper boards the paper can start to peel off and Modge Podge always leaves crazy bubbling, so I just stick to gluestick on pine. Then you just add on the letters.
This is what I helped everyone else with, of course all of our paper combinations were slightly different. I chose black and white because it matched the best with my house.
After I used mine as a demo, I added ribbon to each one, that I just attached with the staple gun. I hung an old curtain rod on the wall. And there you go!
