Beautiful DIY Name Plaque

Today I want to share something with you that my good friend created. It's simply gorgeous, I'm going to copy it for my daughter's room. (using my daughter's name, of course.)

The first step is to select a plaque for the base of the wall hanging. My friend found this one at Hobby Lobby in the bare wood section, she then spray painted the entire plaque white.

She also found these cute, curly wooden letters at Hobby Lobby, then she spray painted them pink.

Once the spray paint had dried, she adhered coordinating patterns of scrapbook paper to the letters using Modge Podge. She just traced the shape of the letter onto the paper, then cut it out.
Once the Modge Podge is dry, then sand to smooth out the Modge Podge using a fine grit sand paper.

Next, she adhered the letters to the plaque using  hot glue. The flowers and leaves are just stickers, how easy it that! I can't wait to make one of my own. This name plaque is to be a Christmas gift for her new baby niece. It's a handmade gift that I'm sure she will cherish for years to come.

Thank you for stopping by today.
