EAT Mod Podge Letters

Saw this post over at Frame Fanatic, and really liked it!
When I saw these letters on sale at Joann Fabric, I thought I would give the project a shot...
They are called paper mache letters, and are very light weight, and look and feel like cardboard.

(This would also work really well for a child's room - with letters spelling out their name!)

I painted the edges, starting with a white base coat.
I would suggest tracing the letters onto scrapbook paper, for the top, before you paint the edges in color.  That way, whatever you use to trace wont get on the paint, or rub spots on the edges.  (I used a pencil to trace the letters, and got some pencil markings on my edges - oops.) 

It took about 3 coats of paint to get the edges dark enough. 
After cutting out the letters in scrapbook paper - mod podge the paper to the top, and that is it!
To hang them, I poked a hole in the back, so it could hang from a nail.

This project cost about $8 - and it is a fun kitchen accessory:)
