DIY Word Wall Art

One of my favorite things (out of many) about our new laundry room is the word art that I made with some amazing scrapbook paper.

To start pick out whatever word you want to spell and buy the letters you need. These are the letters that I used, but they do have several different sizes at Hobby Lobby to choose from. (Don’t forget they put these on sale often – 50% off!) Then choose the paper you like! This paper had my heart immediately! As soon as I saw it, I knew it was just what I needed to pull the room together.
Scrapbook paper
The first step is to paint the sides of the letters with a color that coordinates with the paper you chose. I painted mine with the same pink I had used on the door.

Then coat the top of the letter with Mod Podge.

Place the letter on the paper – glue side to the back of the paper as shown. Smooth the paper over the letter. You will need to be careful with some of the letters – make sure you glue the paper on the right side to ensure the letter will be facing the right way when you’re done. (speaking from experience here – you don’t want to end up with a backwards S)
Attach letter to paper
Next, it’s time to trim the excess paper off. I used a hobby knife and a cutting mat (similar).

Once you’ve trimmed off the excess paper, add a coat of Mod Podge over the top of the paper. This seals the paper, helps it stay attached, and protects it.
