Yesterday I finally decided to try one of the MANY MANY ideas I have pinned on Pinterest.
I am constantly pinning new ideas that I want to try but seldom get around to actually doing them.
Here is my completed project...
This is the original that I found on Pinterest.
I started off with this cardboard letter that I found at Target in there HOT SPOT for only $1.00.
I used a pencil to doodle my design.
I went over the pencil lines with some dimensional fabric paint I had on hand. You could also use puffy paint. You just want to use something that has some dimension to it.
I waited a few hours for the paint to dry completely and then cut some strips of foil to use along the edges. I used just regular white craft glue to attach the foil.
I traced the letter on foil and then cut it out.
I covered the foil completely in glue and then placed on the letter. This part did take a little time. The foil tears easily and I had to do a little patch work in the center of the A.
After the glue dried I went over the letter with black shoe polish.
My inspiration monogram from Pinterest was sealed with Mod Podge. I didn't seal mine because I was happy with the look and didn't want to chance messing it up somehow!
I love the look of the finished product and it only cost me $1.00 to make!
Can't wait to try another Pinterest project!
