DIY Howdy Y’all Wall Art

Howdy Y’all!  Sorry, I couldn’t resist.  About a month ago, I created a really cute (at least I think so) wall art project for my home, and I shared it on One Artsy Mama.  Well, for you fine folks who may have missed it, I wanted to share it on my own blog as well!

(By the way, you can find me over at One Artsy Mama on the fourth Saturday of each month, so be sure to stop by!)

First, pick up some 8″ fiberboard three-dimensional letters.

I found mine at Hobby Lobby, and scored when I found out they were half off!  Gotta love that right?  Ok, moving on…

Choose a few patterns of scrapbook paper to cover your fiberboard letters.  To coordinate with my home decor, I chose a cute red and beige polka dot and a navy and white stripe.

Using your letters as your template, trace each letter and cut them out of the scrapbook paper.  Set aside for now.

Next you need to paint the edges.  I chose Cool White Americana Acrylic Paint.  I only needed one coat.

Alright, while your paint is drying, you’re going to grab those paper letters you set aside and get out your Mod Podge.  You will need to paint a layer of Mod Podge onto each fiberboard letter, then attach the paper.  Be sure to press the paper down and smooth it out to prevent bubbles.

Coat the paper with one or two coats of Mod Podge to seal it, and allow it to dry completely.

To hang my letters, I used these adhesive picture hangers by Command.  Essentially, they’re velcro strips – one side sticks to your letter and the other side sticks to the wall, then you velcro your letter onto the wall.  Genius!

Use a level to hang them, and you’re done!  Cute, right?  I think so!

Now I have a friendly Southern greeting when my friends come to visit!
