I found these super cute wooden letters at my local Michael’s and instantly thought “Ohhh I can paint those for a cute gift” Of course, with Mother’s Day just a few weeks away I picked up two M’s and one O. This is a great gift for kids to personalize for mom for a sweet memorable Mother’s Day Gift keepsake.
The supplies are easy so get creative! You can even customize both sides like I did.
-Acrylic paint in White for the base color and any other accent color.
-Mod Podge to seal your design
Customize Your Mother’s Day Gift
Start by painting your wooden letters with the white acrylic paint. You’ll need a few coats. I did 3 generous coats of paint on each letter. Let each coat dry thoroughly before starting the next coat. You’ll see why soon. (I learned the hard way)
NOTE: Here is where I messed up. I didn’t wait for the last coat of white to completely dry and it kinda got smeared with the teal.
Paint at least 2 coats of your accent color.
TIP: Get creative! Think polka dots, geometric shapes, and even color blocking with various colors! Glitter works awesome too!
Last seal your designs with mod podge. This will help the paint from chipping and the washi tape from curling/peeling off.
