The ‘R’ is going to be one large letter ‘R’ that will be placed on the cake table. It will be decoupaged with color photos of Mr. Roddy and I through the years. It will be a cool compliment to the funky cake that we have designed. This craft has not been completed but we are hoping it is as easy as it looks…
- Big cardboard letter ( I found mine at JoAnn Fabrics)
- Spraypaint – this is the base color (Optional)
- Mod Podge brand glue for decopauging
- Foam paint brush
- Favorite Photos
- Paper Cutter or Scissors to cut the photos
- Ribbon for sides (optional)
- Tacky Glue (for glueing ribbon)
Step 1: Spraypaint the letter. Let the letter dry completely. You will need very good ventilation for this. Be sure to wear protective gear such as gloves, goggles, and a mask.
Step 2: Pick your favorite photos and cut them to the shape of the letter so no picture hangs off the letter. Do this until the letter is fully covered. You have a few choices here. Only cover one side of the letter with pictures or collage pictures all around the letter. You can even overlap pictures if you wish for a different style. For this project I only covered the front with pictures.
Step 3: Using the Mod Podge and foam paint brush, apply a thin layer of the glue to where the picture will lie. Then apply another thin layer to the back of the photo and then place the photo on the designated spot.
Step 4: This step is optional. With the Tacky Glue, glue a ribbon (the width of the letter side) to the outsides of the letter. Be sure to smooth out the ribbon with your fingers to prevent bubbling of the fabric.
Step 5: Admire your work =)
