So my mother recently moved into a new home and asked me to recreate some wood letters that she saw in one of her home decor catalogs. She wasn't super happy that the price tag on them was almost $200. I assured her with royalty free artwork that is found online I could recreate a similar product.
My main concern was I didn't want to reprint a ton of labels, cut them out and mod podge them on individually. I wanted to make this project as easy as possible. So I decided I would lay the labels out on a 13" x 19" image and print out on my Canon PIXMA iP8720 Crafting Printer. The letters were 18" tall and all but the "H" and "M" fit entirely on the sheet. So with a few extra labels printed out and placed on those ends would complete the project. So here's how I created these fun jumbo letters.
18" Wood Letters (I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby for about $12/letter)
Scissors or Craft Knife
Mod Podge Glue (I like the matte)
13x19" Matte Photo Paper
Vintage Label Artwork (google search or download these printables below)
Photoshop or PicMonkey (or something similar)
Once you are done. Then you're ready to PRINT!! I printed out each letter on the 13x19 Matte Photo Paper. Now we're ready to put these together.
Trim out the letter and you're ready for GLUE!
That's all people!! Easy enough don't you think? I went back over the letters with a thin layer of mod podge to seal them and let them dry.
If you'd like to recreate these letters, then here's the FREE PRINTABLE to print yourself.
These turned out super cool Lori! You're the rock star of all things crafty! :)
Love this, Lori!
