My original plan was to use black & white patterned fabric but I didn't find any I liked at Joanns. I did however find some fabulous scrap-booking paper. It was pretty fibrous so I decided to give it a try and it worked!'
|supplies i used: scrap-booking paper, embroidery hoops, mod podge, |
foam brush, pages from hymnal, scissors, and a pencil
|steps: 1) fit embroidery hoop around paper, pull edges tight, trim off |
|2) cut out letters from hymnal (i printed noel out in"baskerville"|
semibold 200pt and used it as a guide)
3) mod podge back of letter and adhere to paper
4) wait 15 minutes and cover surface with even coat of mod podge
I'm really please with how it turned out - it's a nice addition to the bottom of our staircase. When the holidays are over I think I'll remake it either to say "home" or "love.
