lighted initial

This lovely wood initial is adorned with lights, paper coils and flowers. It makes a great décor piece for any occasion.
Step 1

Use hot glue to attach the lights to the front of your wood letter. Be sure to either start or end the lights so that the battery pack is at the bottom.

Step 2

Cut strips of various shades of pink cardstock to ½" x 11" [1.3 cm x 28 cm].
TIP: You will need a lot, so pre-cut a few sheets to get started.

Step 3

To make rolls, wrap a paper strip around a wood skewer and adhere the end.
TIP: The roll can be tight or loose, depending on the size of the desired roll. You can also add a second or third strip to make the roll even thicker. For a looser roll, roll the strip around a pencil. A smaller middle hole will result when you use a thin skewer or toothpick and the hole will increase in size as you increase the size of the item you use to roll.

Step 4

To make rosette flowers, cut a circle out of cardstock, then cut a spiral into the circle. Now, take the end of the spiral and roll it into the middle. Let the paper unroll a bit to loosen the rosette. Use hot glue to secure the rosette to the circle at the end of the spiral.

Step 5

To make a fringe flower, simply cut fringe all along the strip, stopping about ¼" [0.64 cm] from the edge. Now, roll the flower. Add additional fringed strips to increase the size of the flower. Fluff the fringe when you're finished.

Step 6

To make the various types of teardrops, take a paper strip and adhere the two ends to one another. Shape the teardrop as needed. To adhere these to the base, carefully line the bottom edge with hot glue and quickly but gently press it onto the base.
TIP: Use the image as a guide for ideas on different uses of the teardrop shapes.

Step 7

Use hot glue to adhere each element to the base and fill in spaces using the rolls or teardrops.

Step 8

Finally, hot glue wood blocks to the bottom, back of the letter to help it stand.
